Portrait - Urs Schelbert 9 Palaces TCM Akupunktur Schwyz

Urs Schelbert was born in 1979 and grew up in Muotathal (Kt. Schwyz). He discovered his love for Chinese medicine through the Chinese culture. In 2004 he began his study in traditional Chinese medicine in Tao of Chi with Dr. James Skoien, which he copleted in 2009. He spent three months in Hangzhou for an internship in January 2009. 
He moved to Hangzhou in January 2011, where he deepened his knowledge and extended his skills in traditional Chinese medicine at the Zhejiang Chinese Medical University (ZCMU). In addition he also studied Mandarin. In 2014, he was awarded with the “master of medicine acupuncture and tuina” diploma. After four educational and inspirational years in the Middle Kingdom, he returned in winter of 2014 to Switzerland.
From November 2015 till February 2016, he completed a three-month training in the Neurological and Orthopaedic Department in Beijing (中国中医科学院针灸医院). In this renowned TCM institution, Urs Schelbert expanded his medical knowledge especially in the areas of acupuncture and tuina. 
During this time, he made more than 1900 hours of internship in various hospitals in Hangzhou and Beijing. 
He is practicing TCM with great joy and deep conviction. Through his many years training he mastered not only the 5 pillars of TCM, but also specialised in acupuncture and Moxa techniques.
Since February 2016 he works in MediQi as a TCM therapist.
Since 2018 I own a clinic in Kleinstadt 6 in 6440 Brunnen (Schwyz). (ZSR-ASCA, ZSR-EMR, ZSR-NVS No .: W655262).
