Dr. Charis Theocharous
Doctor of Chinese Medicine
(Acupuncturist and Herbalist)

Charis Theocharous was born and raised in Limassol, a coastal city located in the southern part of the beautiful island of Cyprus.

In 1983 he was granted a scholarship which enabled him to study in China; first for two years at Beijing Language and Culture University (BLCU), and then for five years at the School of Acupuncture, Moxibustion, and Therapeutic Massage of Beijing University of Chinese Medicine (BUCM).

Immediately after his graduation in 1990, he was granted a second scholarship, which enabled him to follow a three-year postgraduate program at Dongzhimen Hospital (the First University Hospital of Beijing University of Chinese Medicine), where he did further practice and research and granted the title of Master of Clinical Medicine.

As part of his studies he trained directly, on a one-to-one basis, under two distinguished masters of Chinese medicine, professor Chen Zifu and professor Zhang Guorui, and absorbed a great part of their clinical and teaching experience. Both of them guided him to carry out his clinical work and taught him the way of integrating theory and practice. Upon his graduation, in 1993, he was already an experienced clinician, being able to carry out correct diagnoses and successfully treat a wide variety of ailments.

Dr. Charis Theocharous is honored for his excellent work as a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine and expertise in acupuncture and moxibustion.

In 1993, Dr. Theocharous returned to Cyprus and since then he has been practicing Traditional Chinese Medicine, integrating Chinese Herbal Medicine with Acupuncture, Moxibustion and Chinese Therapeutic Massage (Tui-Na). He runs private practices in both Limassol and Nicosia, and he is available to consult on a wide range of conditions and diseases.

In 2001, the Cyprus Council for the Recognition of Higher Education Qualifications accredited Beijing University of Chinese Medicine (BUCM) and recognized his academic titles of Bachelor of Medicine (Acupuncture, Moxibustion and Chinese Therapeutic Massage) and Master of Clinical Medicine. Since then, he is active in the battle for the legal recognition of the specialty of Acupuncture in Cyprus.

Dr. Charis Theocharous addresses an international conference on the development and innovation of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

He is one of the cofounders and the chairman of the Pan-Cyprian Association of Acupuncturists Limited. He is also member of the Pan-European Federation of Traditional Chinese Medicine Societies (PEFOTS) and overseas member of the Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine (UK).
