Had really bad upper back pain, and was seen by TCM practitioner Joanna. After oneSession of acupuncture and cupping, my pain improved tremendously, and by the next day was near fully recovered. Prices are affordable and i highly recommend Bao Zhong Tang

Han Yen Chen

Had a painful persistent ear infection over a month, with blocked hearing. Was feeling worried because my condition did not improve despite after several sessions of acupuncture and herbs. But during one afternoon i felt a sudden burst in my ear and lots of disgusting greenish pus spurted out. My hearing was back and I felt so comfortable! I believe the treatment helped me recover from my infection by improving the constitution of my body.

How long does each acupuncture session take and how often will I require acupuncture?

Acupuncture works over a course of treatment and each treatment session lasts for about 30 minutes. For acute conditions such as acute sprains, gastroenteritis, fever, menstrual cramps, continuous acupuncture treatment is required. Each course of acupuncture treatment requires 5 sessions, recommended to be administered once daily or once every 2 days.

For chronic conditions such as cervical spondylosis, slipped disc, sciatica, arthritis, frozen shoulder and other chronic pain ailments or degenerative conditions, each course of acupuncture treatment normally requires 10 sessions.

Depending on the patient’s condition, number courses of acupuncture treatment and treatment frequency may vary. Internal medicine conditions may require acupuncture treatment once or twice per week, while acupuncture sessions for menstrual cramps or fertility issues are scheduled based on the patient’s menstrual cycle. Your Physician will advise according to your condition.

How does acupuncture work?

TCM sees the human body as a whole; every organ is connected to each other by meridians. Each meridian branch out to connect different organs, limbs and bones, forming a network around the body. Acupuncture targets acupoints distributed on these meridians, and works to balance yin and yang and stimulate flow of qi and blood. Through these effects, acupuncture is able to relief pain, restore normal body functions and improve the immune system.

Are young children suitable to do acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a commonly used TCM treatment method to restore normal body functions with minimal adverse effects. Young children are also suitable to do acupuncture. However, it is to be noted that young children can be frightened by acupuncture needles, hence parents and physicians should work closely during each acupuncture session. Physicians normally select thinner, shorter needles during acupuncture for young children, and avoid leaving the needles for too long to reduce fear in young children.

Are there any side effects from acupuncture treatment?

Acupuncture is a fully natural form of treatment without the use of any medication, and is unlikely to cause any permanent unpleasant side effects to the body. Some common side effects include dizziness (kindly note to declare to your Physician if you ever felt faint during procedures which involved insertion of needles into your body), slight bruising etc.

During acupuncture, one may expect a slight prickling sensation when acupuncture needles are administered, and minimal bleeding might occur upon the removal of acupuncture needles. It is important to engage professional TCM clinics and physicians for acupuncture treatment. It is also noteworthy that acupuncture may not be suitable for all kind of conditions, so do seek advice from professional TCM physicians to Find out whether acupuncture, or other forms of treatments, will be more suitable for your condition.

How should I prepare myself for an acupuncture treatment?

Before acupuncture, try to remain calm and relaxed. Avoid doing acupuncture on an empty stomach. Acupuncture should also be avoided when you are hungry, overly satiated, or under extreme fatigue. For ladies on your period, do check with the physician if acupuncture is suitable.

Are there any restrictions after an acupuncture session?

It is advisable to avoid direct cold or wind after acupuncture. Bathing/shower should be done 2-3 hours after acupuncture. Ensure sufficient rest 1-2 days after acupuncture.


Is CSC (Civil Service Card) available for use?

Sorry, we do not accept CSC Card.

Can I use Medisave for our medical fees?

Sorry, Medisave cannot be used at our clinic as we are a private medical facility.

Can I claim medical fees from our insurance company or working company?

Please check with your respective insurance agent and company for the eligibility. We will be able to provide supporting documents for your insurance claim, but we are unable to submit any claims on your behalf.


Why can’t I get my medicine immediately after consultation?"

Medicine for each patient is a customised prescription based on their body constitution, hence we do not have pre-made medication for immediate collection. Herbal decoction requires a standardized brewing process that takes 2-3 hours. Collection or delivery of herbal medicine is available earliest half a working day after consultation and is subjected to our Pharmacy’s brewing schedule. Medication in the powder form is prepared by careful weighing and mixture of individual types of herbal powders according to the physician’s prescription. As no brewing is required, it can be prepared in a shorter time and will be available for collection 30-45 minutes after payment.

Will there be any tests performed when seeking TCM treatment?

TCM does not involve any western diagnostic tests. However, TCM utilizes its own diagnostic method, such as sensing of the pulse or examination of the tongue. Further physical examination, such as simple neurological examination and abdominal examination, may be performed if required, under physicians’ discretion.

How long will it take for me to see the effects of TCM treatment?

The treatment duration required depends on type and severity of condition, as well as sensitivity and compliance of an individual to treatment. In general, TCM treatment may take a longer time to demonstrate its efficacy as compared to Western treatment. Chronic conditions may require up to 3-6 months before improvement can be observed. However, TCM treatment contributes to long-term relief of the condition by improving your general constitution.
