Our ATTM practitioners are skillful in both curative and rehabilitation practices. They are well-equipped with the knowledge and understanding of ATTM and modern medicine, as well as possessing analytical abilities, enabling them to define innovative solutions, and further develop their body of knowledge in line with the practice guidelines of ATTM.
