Plans have been revealed to build a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) center for the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics.

As well as providing TCM treatments and medical services during the Games, the centre will house an interactive experience and a training facility. Forming part of the facility mix at the Games, the centre will have a focus on spreading 'TCM culture' and highlight its perceived benefits.

According to local media, the plans are being driven by the Beijing Traditional Chinese Medicine Administration Bureau.

Speaking to , Han Zirong, secretary-general of the 2022 Winter Olympics Organizing Committee, said the initiative follows on from TCM services having been "officially recognised" at the Beijing 2008 Olympics.

"The Olympic Games is one of the most internationally influential events," Han said, and added that the centre's services would be available to athletes.

"TCM's unique efficacy in sports injury rehabilitation has drawn increasing worldwide attention."

Consisting various forms of herbal medicine, acupuncture, massages and dietary therapies, TCM is widely used in China and dates back to more than 2,500 years.
