Birte Hinz

I work in my own clinic in Achim, located between Bremen and Hamburg in the north of Germany. I am a TCM practitioner and prescribe western herb formulas using Chinese’s Medicine diagnostic framework.

Since 2009 I teach the use of Western Herbs in TCM within the context of Chinese Medicine theories. In 2010 I began organising the Western Herb track at the TCM Kongress in Rothenburg.

In the late eighties I went to university studying medicine, chemistry and philosophy and then switched to Chinese Medicine and alternative medicine studies in 1991. My teachers were Ruthild Schulze, Stephan Raatz (TCM), and Ulrike Struck, Klaus Krämer, Sibylle van Luijk (Herbs / Phytoherapy) in Berlin

2000-2002: trained in Tuina therapy and Tuina for Children by Annette Jonas
2002-2005: trained in Western Herbs in Chinese Medicine by Dr. rer. nat. Eva Mosheim Heinrich
2008-2010. designed and set-up a 5 Element Garden, where each corner featured herbs, plants and landscaping pertaining to each respective element. Up until 2016 I conducted on-site lectures and tours for the garden visitors.
