About

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)  is a form of traditional medicine that is based on over 2,500 years of Chinese medical practice and evolution. TCM includes various modes of therapy: herbal medicine, acupuncture, massage (tui na), exercise (qigong and taichi), and diet. 

At Koh Kee Chang TCM Clinic we specialise in herbal formulae that help balance the body, strengthen immunity and restore health. Our herbal formulae have been passed down through the generations and have been refined to address the imbalances of modern lifestyles.

Pioneering Physicians

The process of preparing TCM herbs for consumption can be time-consuming and laborious. The traditional method of consuming herbs involved procuring a prescription from the TCM physician, taking the prescription to the TCM medical hall (the TCM version of a pharmacy where herbs are sold) to purchase the herbs to be brewed at home. The process of brewing herbs follows strict cooking instructions involving the preparation, procedure and timing of the broth according to the specific herbs used.

In 1971, Dr Koh Kee Chang processed the family herbal formulae into powder form and pioneered the use of powdered TCM herbs in capsule form to provide an even more convenient method of taking herbal remedies. Making it more convenient and palatable to a wider audience. This method has also been proven as an effective method of treatment and the convenience has been successfully adopted and appreciated by patients.
