Ratings and Reviews



This app is unquestionably the must have app for TCM students and practitioners. Its value and information exceed the other currently available major TCM apps combined at a fraction of the cost (e.g., BenCao and Points). The app includes information on diagnosis, single herbs, herbal formulas, and acupuncture points (including auricular). The herbs are organized individually, by category, by formula, and formula category. Acupuncture points are organized by channel and also by category. Images for the herbs and acupuncture points are included with a zoom function. The interface is excellent, the app is search enabled, and you can edit and modify information within the app. Combine all of this with a Quiz Yourself add-on that enables you to test your knowledge by indentifying the image, functions, indications, taste, channels influenced, diagnosis, western use, and location of the herbs, formulas, and points and you have an awesome tool for quick review and study at mid-term and final crunch time!!! The developer is also very responsive and diligently works on improving the already fantastic app. Again, if you are a TCM student or practitioner looking for a solid overall TCM app look no further and BUY THIS APP NOW!!!

just wish they made a desktop version!


this is absolutely my go-to app for chinese medicine! it's got point info, individual herb & formula info as well as auricular acu and it's all integrated and cross-referenced! I can search by any of the above, or by diagnosis or symptom. i just type in 'cough' for example & it will bring up all points, formulas, herbs, ear points, and technical tcm diagnoses that could be used with cough. then, i can click on any of those for further detail. it's fantastic. i've downloaded all the other tcm apps available and while I like ben cao for herbs and acupoints ultimate for points, tcm clinic aid is exactly how I practice. i only wish it had more detail - more detailed images with the the ability to tap on a point for info about it like in acupoints. in any case, the infrastructure is there. i look forward to more more more detail!

Don’t have TCM Clinic Aid? You should!!!


Are you a TCM student who doesn’t know what resources to invest in? Choose this! TCM Clinic Aid is indispensable. It’s FULL of information; it’s well-organized; it’s not a million dollars! I use this all the time. I used to check all the information in CAM, ACT and Deadman, but realized I didn’t need to keep doing that because the information is dead on. I had a question and emailed the tech support and they responded right away (pointing out nicely it was my error not theirs :)
So this is all to say, if you are thinking about getting this app you probably should. Also, I added the quizzes recently and I LOVE them. It’s so helpful with remembering point location and herb indications. Having the quizzes at my disposal whenever also means I’m studying more.
