It’s not easy being a kid in Singapore. Between exams, extracurricular activities and staying ahead of the curve, growing up with a competitive education system can be stressful for the little ones. Mum and entrepreneur Tjin Lee understands the pressures children face today, which is why she launched Life Beyond Grades, a social movement encouraging both parents and kids to discover a more well-rounded focus in their development.
The mum-of-two extends this holistic approach to life and learning to her sons, Tyler, five, and Jake, three. Like most children their age, they are prone to nasties that get passed around in school – and nobody needs the extra drama when the kid’s got schoolwork to deal with! Cue Eu Yan Sang TCM Clinic, an expert in traditional Chinese medicine here that offers paediatric treatments for children from six months to the age of seven spanning from herbal medication to tui na, a combination of massage and acupressure.

What can we expect from a typical TCM treatment?
According to the folks at Eu Yan Sang Clinic, TCM’s holistic and personalised approach prevents and remedies the root of common childhood ailments to ensure vitality and minimise relapse. TCM for children is suitable for issues like poor immunity, skin, respiratory and gastrointestinal ailments, such as diarrhoea, asthma, sinusitis, flu and rhinitis. For example, paediatric tui na, a form of external therapy that helps stimulate specific acupuncture points to treat or prevent the little ones from falling ill. It works by removing blockages that prevent the circulation of qi and blood – this treatment is said to encourage both growth and brain development, and also improve the immune system. What’s more, paediatric tui na is safe, gentle and painless. It’s like a soothing massage, only better!
Each treatment starts with a consultation with a qualified physician (Eu Yan Sang follows strict clinical guidelines), where you’ll be given the lowdown on your child’s condition before being prescribed a personalised treatment. It can be something as simple as making a lifestyle change to supplementing their health with oral herbal medication that are easily dissolved in liquids.
Smashing myths and stereotypes…
TCM may be known for its long and storied history, but Eu Yan Sang Clinic combines traditional Chinese medicine with the latest research and methods. In fact, it’s the only TCM business with a medical board comprising Western-train medical specialists and TCM physicians. It’s all about offering preventative care and treatments that’ll help balance the mind, body and soul.
A great space for kids
Eu Yan Sang child-friendly TCM Clinic features a play area to keep the little ones occupied before their consultations. Another bonus: the physicians are trained professionals who are selected for their paediatric clinical experience and ability to connect with young patients and their parents, which means your child is in good hands.
