Welcome to the Traditional Medicine Society!
Founded in 2008, TMS is an ASA-recognized group at MIT devoted to exploring traditional medicine, with the following mission to accomplish:
- Promote awareness of traditional medicines throughout the MIT community.
- Engage the MIT community in the process of exploring various traditional treatments from scientific and anthropological perspectives.
- Apply the medical theories via practical exercises that achieve and maintain a healthy body and mind.
Please note that TMS is not limited to traditional oriental medicine, but seeks to explore traditional medicines from all cultures. As a learning-oriented organization, TMS maintains an open and unbiased perspective towards different types of medical practice. We welcome all who are interested in learning more about traditional medicines to join our discussions, regardless of skeptical or supportive attitudes.
