I have always believe that although western medication aids with speedy recovery, to treat our body back to health, we have to treat the roots of the illnesses. This is where Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) comes in. Eu Yan Sang has been around for the longest time but I have only knew it for its huge range of chinese healthcare products. Thus when I heard about Eu Yan Sang TMC customized health report, I decided to pay them a visit to find out more about my current medical condition – I have been feeling very tired recently even though I have more than enough rest.
Up the flight of stairs inside Eu Yan Sang retail outlet in Jurong is where the Eu Yan Sang clinic is located. Just like western GP, one of the clinic assistant helped me with the registration as it was my first visit to the outlet in Jurong.
After which, my blood pressure was being measured. I waited for about 5 minutes before I see the TCM practitioner aka the physician.
After some basic consultation on my regular eating habits, sleeping habits, the physician checked on my pulse and a report was generated.
From the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) perspective, our body’s constitution can be broadly categorized into 10 types. During my one-to-one personal session with physician Chen Tong Mei, I got to find out about my current dominant body constitution from the Eu Yan Sang Health Report. Besides explaining to me about my body conditions, she has also shared lifestyle changing tips, acupuncture massaging tips and simple recipes that can benefit my wellness.
I was very impressed with the detailed report and how physician Chen Tong Mei shared with me about the TCM knowledge and usage that I have decided to get some TCM medicine to aid in the improvement of my health. Physician Chen Tong Mei has only prescribed 3 days worth of herbal medication for me to try. She was worried that I might be able to take the taste of the herbal medication. I like her thoughtfulness during the consultation as she wasn’t pushy and took interest in nursing me back to optimal health.
Emphasizing TCM’s natural and preventive approach, there are also various treatments such as acupuncture, cupping, Tui Na (Therapeutic Massage), scrapping, bone setting and chiropractic techniques available in different centres.

The local team of TCM practitioners are meticulously selected and licensed by Singapore regulatory bodies.

Both external and internal factors can tip the scale of healthy balance of our body.
