Charis Theocharous | Council Member

I have dedicated ten years in studying and learning Chinese Medicine and specialising in Acupuncture and Therapeutic Massage, in Beijing. I have years of experience in clinical practice and started off with my own Medical Centre as Doctor of Chinese Medicine (Acupuncturist and Herbalist) in 1993, in Limassol. Since then, I had the pleasure to treat patients and lead them towards wellness and health.
