Does your child experience prolonged cough? Or fall to common ailments like flu and fever? While western medicine focuses on managing the symptoms, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) focuses on the root of the problem and the effects are known to be more long-term. However, its effect will be seen much slower compared to western medicine as it takes time to cure the root of the issue. Worried that your child is too young to receive Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treatments? In recent years, with the increase of younger patients opting for Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treatments, more clinics have started to cater their services for children too. Other than prescribing herbs, supplements and other treatments, they also take into consideration other factors too such as the kind of food your child eats and lifestyle. Check out the list of places offering Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for children.

Herbal Basic TCM Clinic

Herbal-Basic was established with children in mind. With years of clinical experience in Pediatric care and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) knowledge, they believe in strengthening the child’s immune system as the cure to keep them in the pink of health. They even offer Baby Cupping, a treatment which combines two Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) techniques – Cupping (Ba Guan) and Scrapping (Gua Sha) with a product specially designed with the safety of kids in mind.
