Some traditions are timeless

by posted in NEWS

Traditional Chinese Medicine is one of the oldest healing systems in the world and still growing in popularity and global appeal among people who are seeking alternative and holistic remedies.

TCM practitioners are known to listen with the whole body, to pay attention and use every sense they have; to focus on the root of the problem rather than individual symptoms and to treat each person as a whole. This system may seem a bit elusive (what is liver qi stagnation or kidney yang deficiency?). However, the main goal of TCM is to promote wellness and keep you in balance.

Heading to or passing through Singapore?

If you’re in the area, you can try TCM for yourself when you check in to our city hotels, which are located a few minutes from each other in the Tanjong Pagar community. Both Six Senses Maxwell and Six Senses Duxton offer a consultation with practitioners from Long Zhong Tang, a local full-service Traditional Chinese Medicine house. The experience begins with a pulse diagnosis, which in Chinese medicine has been one of the most important diagnostic tools for over 2,000 years. This is followed by a conversation to learn more about TCM, from herbal remedies to dietary therapy, and recommendations to improve overall wellness.

Missing your mat?

Of course balance is nothing new to a yogi, and we have more good news if you’re missing your yoga mat while on your travels or in transit. Our focus on wellness includes a rejuvenating and meditative session of yoga under an old, large angsana tree with Heritage Tree status. The wide-spreading crown provides a welcoming shelter as you gently refocus through a blissful yoga practice led by Sue Sze, our community partner.
