Frequently Asked Questions

What is TCM good for?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient medicinal practice that has been used in China for more than 3,500 years. Whereas Western medicine focuses on treating the root cause of diseases, TCM looks at your overall well-being—balance, harmony, and energy. It treats a number of health issues including fertility, pain management, insomnia, stress, digestive issues, and other chronic and/or acute problems as well.

Is TCM recognised in Singapore?

TCM is officially recognised in Singapore by the Ministry of Health. All our TCM physicians are registered under the Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners Board that was established under the Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners Act in 2000.

How do you fix fertility problems?

It takes two to make a baby hence couples are encouraged to come in together for consultation. There are many causes to infertility such as ovulation issues, endometrium lining problems or sperm quality issues. Our TCM physicians will address all these issues and prescribe herbal medicine and/or do regular acupuncture to help you prep your body for conception.

How can I support my fertility?

For a pregnancy to occur, there are several factors that must be balanced and healthy: diet, lifestyle, and overall health. Other than acupuncture and herbal medication treatments, your Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) physician will advise you on fertility awareness methods, self-care wellness such as foot soaks and moxibustion to improve the chances of conceiving.

Does TCM help fertility?

Several studies have shown that Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can help improve fertility in many ways including stimulating ovulation, making cycles more regular, and reducing menstrual cramps and PMS. It can also help thicken uterus lining to prepare it for conception. For men’s fertility, TCM herbs are used to address sperm count, motility and morphology. Thomson Chinese Medicine has been supporting fertility patients since 2009. Book an appointment to discuss your fertility issues with us.

Is TCM reliable?

Yes, it is. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been used for thousands of years and helps many people worldwide. Acupuncture is recognized by the World Health Organisation and there are many scientific researches for TCM herbal formulas to test their efficacy for various illnesses. When used correctly under the guidance of a physician, TCM can prevent illness, optimise health and enhance our wellbeing.
