The history of Chinese Gynecology

Chinese Gynecology was established as an official medical specialty in Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) over a thousand years ago in the Tang Dynasty (618-907) and Song Dynasty (960-1279). During this time Chinese Gynecology had its peak, although some Chinese gynecologists had already practiced Chinese Gynecology hundreds of years ago. There is already evidence of this in the Qin- (221 BC – 207 BC) and Han Dynasty (206 BC – 220 AD).

Since that time the principles and treatment methods of Chinese Gynecology have been further developed and refined over the centuries. So, today we can speak about a completely independent and sophisticated specialty, which is very effectively used nowadays.
