The Korean Medicine Center also opened during the 2015 Gwangju Summer

Universiade, where it provided medical services to 532 athletes from 100

countries, who accounted for 66.9 percent of all visitors to the Korean

Medicine Center during that time. Korean Medicine treatments, including

acupuncture, cupping (moxibustion) therapy, and chuna manipulation therapy,

were popular among the athletes, as they are effective in relieving pain and

preventing injury without causing side effects or doping problems.

The Korean Medicine Center has been opened in Gangneung Media Village to help

promote the health of the athletes and members of the press during the

PyeongChang 2018 Winter Games by providing Korean Medicine consultations and

various Korean Medicine and treatment services.

The center is located at the heart of the village, making it easily accessible

from the nearby media main dining hall, airport check-in center, and NBC work

center. A website has also been launched for the center so that people can make

appointments and receive treatments at their convenience.

Doctors from 13 representative Korean Medicine hospitals and clinics in Korea,

will provide Korean Medicine health care and treatment services at the Korean

Medicine Center. And specialized Korean Medicine treatments will be provided on

the weekends, especially for hair loss, skincare, and dieting.

Marc Kelly, a foreign correspondent working in Gangneung Media Village, visited

the Korean Medicine Center for help with the pain in his neck and back that

emerged after days of reporting on the preparations for the Winter Games. After

consulting with a doctor, he received acupuncture and chuna manipulation

therapy. He later expressed his amazement at the excellence of the Korean

Medicine treatments he received, saying, "I wasn't simply given some

painkillers and physical therapy; rather, the treatment involved a thorough and

accurate diagnosis and remedies that were in alignment with my constitution. It

was very impressive."

Korean Medicine has achieved remarkable advancements based on Dongui Bogam, a

book on Eastern medicine written by Heo Jun. Built up around the concept of

providing treatments for the purpose of preventing disease, Korean Medicine has

grown into a modern-day, evidence-based field of preventive medicine that

focuses on getting to the root of health issues and providing treatments that

are suited to patients' constitutions rather than simply treating patients

after symptoms appear.

As one of the most unique establishments at the Winter Games, the Korean

Medicine Center is a place that each member of the foreign press delegations

should visit at least once.

An official from the Ministry of Health and Welfare remarked, "Through the

Korean Medicine Center, we are happy to provide medical services for members of

the press and media, who will be spending long days reporting on the Winter

Games." He went on to add, "We will focus on ensuring the health of the press

based on excellent Korean Medicine consultations and treatments as well as

Korean medicinal herb tea to ward off the negative effects of the cold weather."

The Korean Medicine Center at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang will be open

from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. over a period of 42 days, from January 15 to February 25,

the day of the closing ceremony of the Winter Games.
