Chengdu is located in Sichuan Province in western China, providing with its beautiful surroundings, close to the holy mountain Emei Shan, in addition to the daily clinical practice various possibilities of recreation. During the study period, we also offer two trips to the mountains, which together make up a week of travel. One is located in the west of Chengdu Qing Cheng Shan, lead us to the other Emei Shan south. Here you can extensively practicing qigong in a monastery and also learn the theoretical foundations. The picturesque landscape in the mountains far from the turbulent metropolis offers the opportunity to recover from the various impressions in the clinic and the turbulent life of the big city and enjoy the tranquility.

Also traveling with escorts or older children are not forgotten. See the growing provincial metropolis with 8 million residents many opportunities for recreation. There are modern shopping malls that offer everything your heart desires. The city is also home to some beautiful monasteries and parks where you can forget the bustle of the city.

The cuisine of Sichuan laves nothing to be desired. In the countless restaurants in the city you will find dishes for all tastes. Traditionally, the kitchen is very sharp. There are also less spicy dishes, put everything that we know in Europe of Chinese cuisine, in the shadows.
