A HERITAGE IN ASIAN HEALING
Built upon a legacy that dates back to 1879, Eu Yan Sang Premier TCM Centre takes a holistic approach to well-being
For holistic healing and to maintain optimal health, many people turn to the centuries-old medical practice of traditional Chinese medicine. Going beyond simply treating symptoms, it addresses the root cause of a health issue, viewing the body as an integrated whole, where organs and systems are interconnected and interdependent.
Eu Yan Sang Premier TCM Centre offers a comprehensive range of traditional Chinese medicine and therapies. Be it a remedy for acute or chronic health conditions or to maintain peak health, its team of qualified physicians will conduct a holistic health assessment before creating a personalised treatment plan.
Centrally located in Camden Medical Centre and Paragon Medical Building, Eu Yan Sang Premier TCM Centres are helmed by a highly qualified team. All the physicians have been selected by an internal medical board according to stringent criteria and must comply with Eu Yan Sang’s strict clinical standards. The board comprises not just TCM professionals but also Western medical specialists from various fields such as oncology, rheumatology, general medicine and ethics, to facilitate the exchange of knowledge on East-west medicine integration. It also oversees standards of care in the development of TCM and integrative medicine clinical services for the group.
Treatments could include oral herbal prescription, cupping, tuina and/or acupuncture. According to senior physician Tang Yue of Eu Yan Sang Premier TCM Centre at Paragon, “Acupuncture can strengthen one’s body constitution, boost immunity and prevent diseases through the stimulation of different acupuncture points.”
It can provide relief for minor allergies, sinusitis and menstrual cramps; tackle insomnia, asthma, infertility and migraines, and ease stress. She adds, “It can also achieve a therapeutic effect for certain aesthetic conditions such as acne, wrinkles, chloasma, sagging skin, hair loss and obesity, by focusing on the underlying cause of the condition.”
Eu Yan Sang was founded in 1879 in Gopeng, Perak as a small shop dispensing quality Chinese medicine and herbs in a bid to free tin mine coolies from the clutches of opium’s suffering. Over the years, it has not only demystified TCM, especially among the young, but also become a household name across Asia. It boasts over 20 clinics in Singapore today. Despite its great success, Eu Yan Sang’s commitment to caring for mankind remains constant and unchanging.
