Client Testimonial

I was recommended to Dr Kong by a friend who was also pregnant. After some contemplation, I saw him for my brown discharge in the first trimester. After 2nd day of his meds and treatment, the discharge did not appear again! Whenever I had backaches from the pregnancy, his treatments will always ease the pain and it is much more effective than going for pre-natal massages. I had a chronic headache once during 2nd trim and after 1 session, it didn’t come back again!

Highly recommend Dr Kong to those who are skeptical about TCM. I also like it that he’s not pushy and allows us to consider going back at our own comfort.

Definitely recommended.

I come to Thomson TCM Paragon to seek fertility treatment before embarking on my IVF journey. Dr Huan Chew Ting is my physician and I feel so lucky to have her. I must say what she has done was WAY MORE than a physician’s responsibility. Without any doubt, she possesses all the necessary knowledge and skills, she is also very genuine, patient, and sincere. She did not hesitate to lend a listening ear and comforted me during the stressful days of IVF, even though it was out of her working hours. She was also very generous to give advice when I share my dad‘s health problems with her. I have been to many other TCM in the past and no one is like her.

Having said I am going to bring my dad to her as well to improve his health condition.

Kudos Dr Huan!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

If you have any questions about TCM in Singapore, you can refer to the frequently asked questions (FAQ) about the best TCM in Singapore below:

What is Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient system of health care that has been around for centuries and was first practiced by the Chinese. The fundamental belief behind it is that a person’s overall wellness is dictated by their state of harmony or disharmony with nature, and that exercising poor lifestyle habits will lead to ill-health. Practitioners therefore try to correct these imbalances through various treatment methods, most commonly by prescribing herbal remedies and recommending behaviour changes.

What are TCM Clinics?

TCM clinics usually offer all or some traditional Chinese medicine treatments in one place, and there are indeed many of them to be found across Singapore. As the name suggests, TCM clinics usually contain various rooms designated for different traditional Chinese medicine treatments, so visitors can be sure to find what they are looking for. Many of these clinics are located in community health centres, but there are also plenty of private TCM physicians who offer their services without the need to register with a particular clinic or hospital especially some TCM near me.

What types of TCM Treatments are there?

TCM treatments are varied, but the most common ailments that are treated are musculoskeletal problems. Some of the most commonly practised TCM therapies include acupuncture, tui na massage and gua sha scraping. Acupuncture is a technique in which the TCM physician inserts fine needles at specific points on the body to improve the flow of Qi in the body to relieve pain or treat certain conditions. It can be at specific parts of the body (such as facial acupuncture ) or the whole body. Qi is the energy flow created along the pathways that connect the acupuncture points on the body. Tui na is a form of massage that involves applying pressure and manipulating the body’s joints, and gua sha is a scraping technique used during tui na. TCM treatments that are practised include moxibustion (burning mugwort on or near acupuncture points to treat certain ailments), cupping (applying suction to the body), tai chi (a form of exercise that is said to benefit both body and mind) and t’ai tung tao (an oral therapy using Chinese herbal medication).

Where can I find TCM treatment clinics in Singapore?

Traditional Chinese Medicine TCM clinics are found all over Singapore, and there is one to fit every budget. There are luxury TCM clinics in Singapore that offer the finest quality TCM treatments at very high prices, but this will not be everyone’s cup of tea. The majority of Traditional Chinese Medicine TCM clinics in Singapore are more affordable, with many being community TCM clinics within public hospitals. This means TCM treatment in Singapore is often heavily subsidised, so the general public can benefit from Traditional Chinese Medicine treatments without spending too much.

What is the difference between Traditional Chinese Medicine TCM and Western Medicine?

TCM has been introduced in Singapore since 1993 as a complementary form of medical care for specific health conditions. However, in 2008 it was redefined to be a healthcare discipline with both individualised and preventative approaches to treatment. TCM is regulated by the TCM Practitioners Act. This means that a TCM physician has to have graduated from one of Singapore’s two TCM institutions – Nanyang Polytechnic and Ngee Ann Polytechnic – in order to practice here. They are also the only TCM practitioners allowed to register patients with the Health Ministry so they can claim from medical insurance providers.

Should I visit a TCM Clinic if I have a chronic condition?

If you have acute and chronic conditions conditions, you may wish to see both a TCM physician and Western medicine practitioner to get a better understanding of your symptoms. This is because TCM and Western treatment approach different aspects of medical conditions; the former focuses on the prevention of ailments, while the latter treats diseases that have already occurred.

What are the benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Treatment in Singapore?

TCM treatment contributes to improved overall health, as well as enhanced immune system functioning. The holistic approach of TCM is uniquely beneficial, utilizing herbal medicines and acupuncture to address physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Unlike Western diagnostic tests which focus on identifying a particular disorder or symptom, TCM focuses on understanding an individual’s unique set of circumstances. This allows the practitioner to recommend an individualized course of treatment that takes into account lifestyle factors, environment and any underlying causes. The treatment duration required depends on each person’s individual condition and needs.

How accurate is Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis?

Traditional Chinese Medicine has its own diagnostic method which is based on centuries-old knowledge and observation. It covers unique pattern recognition that some refer to as “energetic medicine” – by precisely recognizing various “energies” it can accurately pinpoint the source of the imbalance and identify how best to address it. Thus, TCM practitioners rely more heavily on pulse reading than Western practices such as blood test results or scanning technology for diagnosis accuracy. Combined with a thorough medical history review, this enables an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan from practitioners trained in both Western and Eastern modalities.
