    Research Directions

    Research studies in the Master’s Program are based on the principles of preventive medicine and evidence-based medicine. These principles were established to ensure that, after graduating, students would possess the ability to apply their knowledge in various health-related industries. In order to expand the research capacity of the Program and diversify research areas, research facilities and infrastructure have been gradually improved.


    A wide range of natural therapies are used in Taiwan, these include traditional Chinese medicine, herbal medicine, health products, organic and special diets, vitamin therapy, aromatherapy, physical therapy (body massage, foot reflexology, naprapathy, chiropractic treatment, Gua Sha, cupping therapy, and acupuncture), physical activity, and regulation of the body, mind, and spirit (tai-chi, dan-gong, chi-gong, meditation, Buddhist chants, and bible study), and supernatural treatments (fortune telling and nerve-calming ritual). The focus and priority of the Program were established based on the following four points:

      1. Conform to medical ethics and standards, and ensure the safety of patients.
      2. Accumulate and compile research data for public use, and to
          be able to integrate their usage with Western medicine.
      3. Conform to international research standards and trends.
      4. Conduct research that has practical applications.

          The Program has accumulated extensive research data and expertise related to complementary and alternative medicine. In particular, a wealth of research findings has been accumulated from studies on the autonomic nervous system, aromatherapy, health survey, tai-chi, and traditional Chinese medicine. In addition, horticultural therapy, energy medicine, meditation, and mindfulness therapy are fields that are currently undergoing rapid development.
