TCM Specialties, latest news and medical developments

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has formed a unique system to diagnose and cure illness. The TCM approach is fundamentally different from that of Western medicine. In TCM, the understanding of the human body is based on the holistic understanding of the universe, and the treatment of illness is based primarily on the diagnosis and differentiation of syndromes.

Our experienced physicians use TCM acupuncture, herbal medicine, massage, heat cupping, scrapping and exercise to stimulate the body’s natural curing power. These are beneficial in pain relief, restoring the vital energy of our body to fight against diseases, which will speed up recovery process. The physicians in our clinic possess a high level of expertise and are registered with the Singapore Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Practitioners Board (TCMPB).
