Sanya’s relevant authorities are launching a crackdown on unlicensed TCM beauty treatments in an effort to regulate the TCM healthcare market.

In the Dadonghai area, some TCM beauty treatment operators who were found to be giving beauty services without complete valid licenses or qualified hardware facilities were ordered to cease operations for improvement.

Blessed with a year-round warm climate and abundant sunshine, Sanya is becoming popular with visitors, especially Russian tourists, seeking medical or health and wellness holidays in recent years.

Tourists visiting Sanya to seek TCM beauty treatments should make sure to choose legal operators with a business certificate. Greater efforts have been called for to standardize services and promote the industry’s healthy development.
