Health complications are the worst thing that can happen to anyone. Not only do you have to deal with the many inconveniences that come with body pains, but also the limitations to what you can and cannot do as long as your condition and its accompanying symptoms persist. Modern medical practices are probably the first thing that comes to mind to help get through it. But more often than not, these practices cost a fortune and would sometimes require surgical methods. That’s why despite Singapore’s ever progressive and modern economy, TCM or traditional Chinese medicine continues to be sought after by locals and ex-pats alike.
Not only does it promise to help alleviate the body of multiple pains and conditions, but it also gets the job done without too many implications on your bank account. So if you’re looking into TCM therapy, here are 4 of Bukit Batok’s best TCM clinics!
Note: This list is strictly not in order.
1. Minka Healthcare

I used to have difficulty understanding my state of health in the past when i see chinese physicians cos they are chinese educated and i didnt understand what they were trying to tell/explain to me until i met physician Loh. She is able to inteprete and explain to me in perfect english and is very accurate in reading my pulse. Just 2 weeks of med, i was free from pain killers for 6mths for my monthly woes of period cramps. I would vomit and be bed ridden for couple of days in the past if i did not take my pain killers before the onset of cramps. She is my go-to physician even though she is so far frm my home (punggol->bt batok->punggol). Thank you physician Loh for treating my condition with such efficacy.
Whole heatedly recommend Minka to help you manage any migraine, headache, muscle pain or discomfort you might suffer.
I’ve been seeing physician Loh for the past one year for my severe migraine and if it’s not for physician Loh, I would still be taking too much painkillers and damaging my stomach.
Thank you physician Loh!

Been a firm supporter since my sec school days when I had my first sprain till now as part of the fitness industry i still have my injuries which are almost instantly resolved after each consultation. Glad to see the younger generation taking over and i dare say the standards and accuracy of diagnosis don’t fall below the respectable older sinseh that I used to visit for my injuries. I would definitely recommend my fitness industry mates to visit this clinic. And keep up the good work!
