We made a “quick” trip to the idyllic town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber for the TCM Kongress.
I put quick in quotation marks because it took us 10 and a half hours to get there, door-to-door! However once we arrived, I completely understood why 1500 TCM practitioners from all over the world attend year after year. Being in Rothenburg is like being transported into a storybook and it is a real joy to experience such a delightful place.
Our main purpose was not to exhibit, but to support our new team members – China Purmed!
It is our pleasure to announce that China Purmed is now a part of the Phoenix family! China Purmed has been a longstanding business partner and friend to the company and we’re really excited to work with them. They are a well-respected supplier of acupuncture needles and TCM supplies situated in Germany.
As Peter Waltz built his career as a TCM practitioner, he saw an opportunity to provide better quality TCM products to the German market and so he sought his sister Brigitte Antoniou’s help and started China Purmed over 20 years ago.
This year, we’re starting a new chapter with China Purmed as a parent company. Through our resources in supply chain, marketing and education, we’ll be modernising and refining China Purmed for continued success. Together with Peter, Brigitte and the team, we hope to improve the standards and availability of Chinese medicine.
