What is TMCA Clinic

What you see – If you wish to experience the goodness of Tibetan and Chinese medicines in Pune, Dr. Passang’s clinic is the one for you. With a doctorate degree in traditional ancient medicine of China and Tibet, Dr. Passang has tried to unite both the disciplines with the administration of herbal medicine with acupuncture.
Enter the clinic but without footwear for it is mandatory to remove your shoes to maintain hygiene here. As we sat and browsed through the books we couldn’t help noticing the numerous pictures of human anatomy pasted all over the walls of the waiting room. It was a biology class all over again for us. There are also articles educating you about medicinal practices.
The consulting room has a wall hanging of Buddha in red, along with small Buddha statues all over giving a very spiritualistic outlook. We also saw a letter from Dalai Lama, wishing Dr. Passang health and luck and motivating him to have confidence in himself for all his future endeavors. Dr. Passang has two separate rooms where the treatment sessions take place.
What you get – The combination of traditional Tibetan and Chinese herbal medicine and Acupuncture along with Moxa, cupping and Chiropractic work is used to heal body pains, stiffness, acute and chronic problems (apparently even cancer), face and skin problems of all types, physical and mental emotional problems, weight loss and gain. They even have sessions to help quit smoking and drinking.
Moxa treatment which is also called as maxibustion is a traditional Tibetan medical technique that involves the burning of mugwort (a weedy plant) over the required acupuncture points of the patient. It is believed that this helps in strengthening the blood circulation and Qi (spiritual energy) and maintaining health.
They also use the method of cupping here. It takes care of blockage of blood and phlegm. This helps to maintain a better flow of blood movement which ultimately takes care of chronic imbalances. It heals spondylitis, blood pressure, water retention etc. For people with bone problems like hernia etc, chiropractic work is suggested to help strengthen and align them.
Our verdict – Dr. Passang is known in India and Europe for promoting acupuncture and is on the board of many health councils. Along with an American psychiatrist he travels all over the world to incorporate acupuncture in solving problems of the emotionally affected. This ancient form of healing is said to have no side effects. Prior appointments are necessary here. Once in a year they also offer free Moxa treatments.

    I went to Dr. Passang with a severe case of bronchitis. I was dead sure that I’d have to resort to antibiotics. But 3 days of getting needles poked all over, I was fit as a fiddle. It was really unbelievable. Apart from the treatment, Dr. Passang himself is a great man to meet and interact with. I recommend the clinic for all those who are looking for natural treatments to ailments.
