Losing sleep over aches, strains or digestive issues? Whether literally or figuratively, maybe it’s time you gave Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) a shot. 

Just mention ‘TCM treatment’ and watch half of your family and friends get the heebie-jeebies, while the other half swear by it. For many, the idea of TCM treatment means having to endure some form of excruciating pain, but that is not the case at all. 

Seeking to restore the body’s internal balance, TCM uses methods like acupuncture (which honestly feels like a tingle and does not hurt at all!), Tui Na (traditional Chinese massage), cupping, gua sha (scrapping) and herbal medication. Backed by actual science, these methods have been proven to effectively manage and treat ailments like arthritis, muscle pains, diabetes, digestive issues, high blood pressure, cancer and more. 

So the next time you’ve pulled a muscle when at the gym and are in need of immediate relief, how about considering a visit to one of these TCM clinics in Singapore?

A trip to the TCM may be more affordable than a chiropractor or physiotherapist, but their costs can still add up given that each treatment requires at least 5 sessions. For peace of mind, getting the right Personal Accident insurance plan helps.

In addition, it provides daily hospital allowance, protection from 24 infectious diseases (including COVID-19, Dengue Fever, Zika virus and Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease) and claims are a breeze to file as it can all be done online.
