We have over 25 years experience in the field of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture.

Welcome to Hua Tuo Chinese Clinic and Dr Shang's Chinese Clinic. Our clinics are found in the centres of Derry and Magherafelt. We know that everyone responds differently to acupuncture and so we work hard to ensure that you get the best treatment for your needs. Our practices trace back to Hua Tuo, one of ancient China's greatest medical pioneers, and are backed by the current research of TCM universities in China.
