When we think about Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), one of the things that comes to mind is usually… acupuncture.

Well, that’s because it’s one of the main practices used in TCM.

Apart from acupuncture, TCM includes various other practices like herbal medicine, cupping therapy, and massages known as Tui Na and Gua Sha, which involve scraping the skin’s surface using smooth-edged tools made of jade, buffalo horn, or other materials.

If you don’t know already, TCM is an important alternative medicine that complements Western medicines, but not everyone is receptive due to the lack of exposure and reliance on Western medicines.

Because TCM is so prominent, some companies even provide insurance coverage for it. Remember to check with your company’s insurance provider if TCM is covered!

Most TCM services in private practice are not subsidised, and you can’t use MediSave to foot the bill.

At the moment, the CHAS subsidies are not extended to TCM Clinics, so hopefully, HealthierSG will incorporate TCM as part of its plan.

Here’s a guide to some of the best TCM clinics and their services in Singapore.


TL;DR: Best TCM Clinics in Singapore (2023)

Best TCM Clinics For Acupuncture in Singapore

In acupuncture, trained and licensed practitioners insert thin, sterile needles into specific points on the body, known as acupuncture points or meridians.

These points are believed to be connected to channels through which vital energy, known as “qi,” flows.

By stimulating these points, acupuncture aims to restore the balance of qi and promote the body’s natural healing processes, providing a safe and effective treatment for various health conditions, pain relief, stress reduction, and overall well-being.

Best TCM Massage or Tuina in Singapore

When you think of massage, you will envision essential oils, a comfortable massage bed and a relaxing spa.

However, Tui Na involves the use of various hand techniques to manipulate the body’s soft tissues, muscles, and acupressure points. The practitioner applies pressure, kneading, rolling, and stretching movements to specific areas of the body to promote the flow of qi (vital energy) and blood and to balance the yin and yang forces.

The main goals of TCM massage are to alleviate pain, reduce muscle tension, improve circulation, and promote overall relaxation and well-being.

It is often used to address a wide range of health conditions, including musculoskeletal disorders, stress-related issues, digestive problems, and more.

Qualified and experienced practitioners can perform TCM massage on fully clothed patients, and the therapy can be customised to suit individual needs and conditions. As an alternative or complementary approach to traditional Western massage techniques, TCM massage is safe and non-invasive, gaining popularity worldwide.

Best TCM Clinics For Cupping in Singapore

For the uninitiated, cupping is a therapeutic technique where practitioners place small glass or plastic cups on the skin to create suction.

This helps stimulate blood flow, promote healing, and relieve muscle tension. The cups are usually left in place for a few minutes or moved gently across the skin for a relaxing and rejuvenating experience.

If you’ve seen red-purple circles on someone’s back, it’s likely a result of cupping, and these marks typically fade away after a few days.

Best TCM Clinics For Gua Sha in Singapore

In TCM, Gua Sha is a traditional healing technique where practitioners use a smooth-edged tool, often made of jade or horn, to scrape the skin’s surface.

They apply pressure and stroke the tool along affected areas, resulting in redness on the skin. The therapy aims to promote blood circulation, release toxins, and alleviate muscle tension, ultimately supporting the body’s natural healing processes.
