College of Medicine and Healing Arts (CoMHA) is based in Leicester, UK and runs on-site courses in UK and internationally. We are a not-for-profit organisation with a mission to train and develop individuals to the highest level of skill and professionalism in Unani Tibb and Complimentary & Alternative Medicine (CAM). Our underlying philosophy at CoMHA is one of inclusiveness, seeing unity in diversity.

The Inspiration and Vision

Good health is essential for a full and happy life. Everyone would like to enjoy perfect health throughout their life. Perfect health means complete enjoyment of all inherent vitality and clarity of mind. It is a state of total well-being and happiness. Tibb (Unani) is a living tradition of health and well-being that also incorporates positive aspects of Complimentary & Alternative Medicine (CAM).

CoMHA Online: Reaching Every Home and Community

CoMHA Online is a community health initiative to inform, educate and empower individuals, families and communities across the globe to promote their own health and to learn how to overcome disease and ill health.
