Don’t let life get in the way of your well-being – Tjin Lee, an entrepreneur and mum-of-two, tries TCM as a holistic wellness remedy for the very first time
Entrepreneur Tjin Lee may have a lot to juggle running a marketing, events and PR business while spearheading a social enterprise, launching a social movement and making time for her children. But this go-getter took it all in her stride – until a health scare prompted her to focus on her overall health.
With that in mind, she decided to give TCM a shot at Eu Yan Sang TCM Wellness Clinic as a holistic health and wellness option. If the name doesn’t ring a bell (and it should), Eu Yan Sang is an established Traditional Chinese Medicine specialist that’s been around since 1879. Besides its storied history, what puts Eu Yan Sang ahead of the curve are TCM remedies and therapies supported by innovations in technology to ensure quality and patient safety, which the mum-of-two got to try at the Plaza Singapura clinic.

Curious about what it all involves? Here’s a quick breakdown on what to expect at a Eu Yan Sang TCM clinic:
Finding your balance in life
Searching for a little TLC for your mind, body and soul? You’ll find a wide variety of TCM treatments that don’t always involve needles and exotic herbs. TCM’s holistic approach focuses on the close relationship between mind, body and environment. TCM believes that we are all made up of two opposing forces, Yin and Yang, and when the balance is upset, diseases and illnesses may arise. Eu Yan Sang Clinic follows strict clinical guidelines where patients are assessed by qualified physicians before being prescribed a personalised treatment plan that can range from lifestyle changes and oral herbal medication to cupping and acupuncture. Of course, Eu Yan Sang Clinic believes that nothing beats preventative care and treatments are prescribed to balance the Yin and Yang in every individual – which will help prevent diseases or rectify any symptoms you may have.
Get to the root cause
In case you didn’t already know, TCM is all about re-adjusting your ‘vital life force’ by diving into the root of your health issues with diagnosis, therapy and medication. This involves checking for a group of signs and symptoms that involves inspection, listening and smelling, inquiry and palpation, with a strong emphasis on the body’s constitution, or chi. There is rarely a one-size-fits-all solution even for those with the same condition, as prescriptions are given based on the different root causes and body constitutions. In short, treatment plans are always customised according to individual needs, so you should always consult a licensed TCM physician for an accurate diagnosis.
A considered approach
Newbies to TCM can breathe easy, as Eu Yan Sang Clinic uses only quality herbal powder that are approved by the Health Sciences Authority of Singapore which is modern and a convenient way to consume Chinese medicine. The clinic uses a meticulous system for sending the prescriptions electronically to the dispensary with two points of stringent checks – which means a more efficient service with less room for error. They are also the only TCM business with a medical board comprising Western-trained medical specialists and TCM physicians. Yep, it’s TCM using modern methods without the stereotypical mysticism.
