Singapore Tatler Best of Singapore
IN GOOD HANDS
With more than 140 years of heritage to its name, Eu Yan Sang is still breaking new ground in Singapore
Eu Yan Sang may have started off in Singapore with one clinic in 2002, but today, the brand has more than 20 traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) clinics islandwide – a new addition at Chinatown Point recently opened in October 2019.
The brand’s clinics have three different concepts, each catering to a different need. The Eu Yan Sang TCM Clinic serves patients in the heartlands and aims to help with acute and chronic illnesses, while the Eu Yan Sang TCM Wellness Clinic helps patients with sub-health, skin as well as weight and pain management; it offers travel health solutions for busy executives, too. The Eu Yan Sang
Premier TCM Centre is managed by a team of experienced physicians who are trained to manage complex or chronic health conditions through a combination of prescribed herbal medication, acupuncture, tui na and cupping.
Eu Yan Sang’s longevity can be credited to its balanced use of technology and tradition. While it prioritises a holistic health and wellness approach that’s based on its centuriesold TCM heritage, Eu Yan Sang has simultaneously built a reputation for quality, safety and innovation.
“We aim to demystify TCM for the modern patient through continuous learning and by upgrading and adapting our practices, which are supported by rigorous standards in terms of structures, processes and controls,” explains Lim Swee Cheng, general manager (clinic services and operational excellence) at Eu Yan Sang.
Not only does its islandwide network make it accessible for people from different walks of life, Eu Yan Sang also adds a personal touch to its treatments; each one is customised to the individual, says Lim. Its team of physicians are carefully selected by an internal medical board, and are all licensed by the TCM Practitioners’ Board. “Furthermore, the brand prioritises education and has established Eu Yan Sang Academy Limited (EYSA) to provide quality TCM as well as health and wellness courses to its physicians and interested healthcare professionals, schools, corporate companies and the public,” says Lim.
