ATHENS, June 7 (Xinhua) – The Athenian suburb of Maroussi hosts an exhibition on traditional Chinese medicine and health culture, which opened on Friday with the aim of familiarizing Greeks with China’s long tradition of medicine and of cultivation of a healthy lifestyle.

The exhibition, organized by the Shanghai Museum of Traditional Chinese Medicine of the Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Municipality of Maroussi, will last for five days. It will help visitors explore Chinese health culture through four main themes: meridian health, exercise, nutrition and environmental health.

University vice president Chen Hongzhuan said at the opening of the exhibition that “Chinese medicine has become one more artefact for the global cultural context.”

“Greece has been the birthplace of Western medicine … Our shared vision will take us further,” Chen said, adding that a Tai Chi conference will be held in Greece in October.

The mayor of Maroussi, Giorgos Patoulis, said the exhibition “opens new avenues for educational, cultural and tourist exchanges between Greece and China”.

“China is reaching out to the cradle of Western medicine to promote its own wellness medicine, importing the knowledge of Hippocratic medicine into traditional Chinese medicine,” Patoulis said.

Events within the framework of the exhibition include a series of lectures and interactive activities and seminars with public participation, such as a seminar on “Tai Chi & Baduanjin & The Five Animals in Chinese Martial Arts”.

The exhibition is the 10th stop of the Shanghai Museum of Traditional Chinese Medicine’s overseas tour.
