Ma Kuang shares TCM philosophy
THE Ma Kuang Healthcare Group, which has its roots in Taiwan, has quickly grown to be one of the largest traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) health-care providers in Singapore, since it opened its first clinic in 1999.
Now, it has a chain of 23 clinics here, with a squad of 50 professional practitioners.
Ma Kuang strives to share the philosophy of TCM as universally as possible, while modernising traditional medicine practices to debunk various medical myths.
Here are some of the services offered by Ma Kuang:
Before starting any treatment plan, Ma Kuang's physicians will embark on a series of inquiries to determine your physical condition.
These include questions on the types and duration of symptoms, frequency of occurrence and whether there are any accompanying complications.
The physician will then recommend a treatment plan for your condition.
A popular form of Chinese massage, tuina involves the physician using his hands and fingers as a tool during therapy, in combination with massage, finger-press and other manipulative techniques.
Through pressing various acupoints, meridians and muscles, tuina helps to achieve smooth flow of qi - or energy - and blood.
The World Health Organization has acknowledged that this treatment which regulates qi and the blood, as well as builds up one's immunity, is beneficial for 63 types of diseases.
These include various types of pain, hypertension, stroke and rheumatism.
Children can also benefit from the natural TCM treatments offered.
These can have good therapeutic effects for children suffering from conditions like allergic rhinitis, asthma, atopic dermatitis, prolonged cough, anorexia and bed-wetting.
