Despite Singapore’s high economy and progressive nature, there seems to be a high demand for traditional Chinese medicine. Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM is a practice that aims to help alleviate the human body of various ailments and negative conditions. This practice incorporates herbal medicine, various diet therapies, the widely-known acupuncture, cupping, tui na, and so much more.
TCM and its services are said to help improve on a person’s quality of life, and even help maintain the overall good condition of the body–that’s why in a modernized generation of smartphones and latest medical innovations, a lot of people still swear by TCM’s traditional methods with regards to staying in peak physiological status!

This is my first visit to this tcm. Samuel is very patient in treatment and giving advice. I hurt my shin and the whole treatment was painless. Will recommend to friends.
Had a sprained ankle, limping into his clinic, then walking out so much better. 2days later, continue golfing.

A good and detailed doctor. He was very patient and friendly. Treated my son’s ankle sprain. Good medicine applied to the sprain as well..👍
Mr Yu is extremely accommodating and friendly and knows his trade well. Really fuss free treatment and he doesn’t hard sell his Chinese herbs medication. Brought my grandmother there because she had some bone spurs in her shoulder blade and lower back (result of age). She was happy with the treatment and says she feels some pain relief. We ended up buying the herb medication anyway and paid $80 for acupuncture, cupping and two big bags of herbs. Will definitely head back!

Good service and advice
Overall this was a great experience and I wish I could find a place like this at home to continue treatments.
I took one month supply of the herbs (which dissolve in water and are taken twice daily). So that I could see if they actually do anything. I will try to review again when the month has passed as to whether they were effective.
I really enjoyed this and am very happy with this place and doctor in particular.
