The journey to parenthood may not always be smooth sailing for couples facing fertility issues. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can work as a complement to IVF and IUI or as an alternative treatment to improve your chances of conceiving.
Confinement can be a particularly stressful period as you have to take care of the baby while your body is recovering from the toils of the delivery process. Find out how TCM can help nourish and restore your body’s balance during this crucial period.
Children have vastly different body constitutions from adults and are prone to falling sick due to weaker immune systems. TCM combines gentle paediatric massage and herbal treatments to improve your child’s delicate constitution and build up their resistance against illnesses.
From the TCM perspective, pain arises due to congestion of Qi and Blood or deficiencies in the body. TCM treatments help to ease the blockage of Qi and Blood, triggering your body’s self-healing ability. Say no to painkillers and find out how TCM pain management treatments can benefit you.
Stroke causes oxygen-deprivation in parts of the brain, resulting in damage to brain cells and affecting abilities controlled by those areas of the brain. TCM treatments help to improve blood circulation and boost oxygen supply to the brain and also helps to dissipate blood clots for faster recovery.
Skin-related issues can be a real nuisance and may affect your confidence in social settings. Skin being the body’s largest and most visible organ, is closely related to the Lung and problems usually arise from various internal imbalances. These imbalances are often due to toxin build up, Lung heat, Stomach heat, heat in the Blood, Blood or Yin deficiency.
If you always feel weak and unwell, but medical reports indicate that you do not have any serious ailments, you may be in a state known as “Sub-health”. TCM treatments are effective in restoring your health to optimal levels by treating the symptoms and fortifying your body on a holistic level.
Need TCM treatment but unable to make it to the clinic? Be it for yourself, an elderly or your unwell child, our physicians can now treat you in the comfort and convenience of your preferred location island-wide.

Prep your Next Step: Post-Delivery – Brought to you by SmartParents –
Post-delivery, many women face frustrations during their maternity break. The reality only sinks in when new parents:
Are given conflicting confinement practices by parents, nannies and friends
Face difficulties in breastfeeding their infant
Mothers want the best for their babies and may not know how or where to go to get themselves prepared for when the baby arrives.
Confinement Practices and Breastfeeding requires preparation and emotional support from your family. We have developed a workshop for Pregnant Women, aiming to:
Educate families on confinement practices & debunking the myths
Equip new mothers-to-be with knowledge and confidence on baby care and breastfeeding
Impart the correct techniques & positions to breastfeed your baby
SmartParents is proud to present this specially curated programme featuring Physician Seah Ai Wei, Head of Thomson Chinese Medicine, Thomson Mummy Cheryl Wee and the Thomson Parentcraft Lactation Consultants featuring Ms Chen Liqin. These experts are proud mothers who have experienced confinement practices, breastfeeding and have educated thousands of mothers on the importance of breastfeeding and baby care. This programme focuses on mothers-to-be, providing knowledge and confidence while they prepare & strengthen their mindset for post-delivery challenges.
