SOHA Institute is a full fledged institute. (Wikipedia: In the Tibetan language, "svaha" is translated as "so be it" and is often pronounced and orthographically represented as "soha").
The Institute houses two departments – Department of Humanities and Department of Alternative Medicine. The latter takes over the coverage of the programmes previously conducted by TCM Professional Centre in delivering professional certification and enrichment courses in various therapeutic and healing methods. These courses are accredited by overseas institutions renowned for their specialized courses in Traditional & Complementary Medicine and Therapies. They include sports massage, reflexology, herbalogy, TCM nutrition, post natal care, herbal beauty, care-giver, elderly and massotherapy. This department is also active in imparting employable skills to the visually impaired.
The department offers professional certification courses validated by Chengdu University of TCM. SOHA Institute is also an approved training organisation of the Singapore Workforce Skills Qualification (WSQ) and ITEC(UK) in complementary and beauty therapies.
