Thai Traditional Complementary Medicine is the center with Eastern and Western movement-based approaches for treatments. Conventional medicine coordinated by Department of Orthopedics and  the Northern Neuroscience Center integrated with complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) for high-quality evidence of safety and effectiveness.

CAM practices are grouped into broad categories, such as natural products, mind and body medicine, and manipulative and body-based practices.

CAM "natural products" also include Thai and Chinese herbal medicine.

CAM “mind and body medicine” acupuncture uses a variety of techniques, that are then manipulated by hand or by electrical stimulation. This focused primarily on the structures and systems of the body, including the bones and joints, soft tissues, and circulatory and lymphatic systems. Two commonly used therapies fall within this category:

•          Spinal and body manipulation: The goal of the treatment is to relieve pain and improve physical functioning.

•          Suandok massage therapy encompasses many different techniques to relieve pain, rehabilitate sports injuries, reduce stress, increase relaxation, address anxiety and depression, and aid general well-being.
