 +**Traditional Chinese medicine, an ancient technology for modern voice therapy**
 +
 +Voice disorders like recurrens paresis, aphonia, dysphonia, and even obstructive sleep apnea can be treated effectively by methods of the traditional Chinese medicine. Two main systems are used in Chinese medicine.
 +
 +The first consists in different methods of acupuncture like traditional Chinese acupuncture where points are found on the whole body or ear acupuncture (auriculotherapy), both systems can be combined.
 +Second system is the herbal medicine. It increases the effect of acupuncture and if necessary it can be used exquisitely.
 +
 +For an efficient practice it is important to translate the western diagnosis into Chinese diagnosis, to understand basic principles of physiology and pathophysiology and differentiation of syndromes from the TCM point of view. In our clinic patients are first examined by an ENT and then are treated with logopedic therapy and acupuncture and/or herbal medicine. Clinical examples of this approach swill be demonstrated.
