Sub-Health and Wellness
Are you frequently tired, depressed or easily agitated? Do you suffer from insomnia, poor memory or muscular aches and tension? If yes, you might be in a sub-health state - the condition between being health and sickness. You doctor may not detect any medical conditions, yet you experience discomfort and constant malaise.
In today’s society, occupational stress and undesirable lifestyle habits are the main causes of sub-health. Long term stress and insufficient rest not only increases your risk of liver damage, our bodies' balance will also be disrupted, resulting in various physiological imbalances. These eventually manifest as sub-health symptoms, such as:
- General discomfort
- Irregular periods (for women)
While not immediately life threatening, people in a state of sub-health are at higher risk of developing psychological and physiological conditions.
Our physicians at Raffles Chinese Medicine are seeing more patients with sub health conditions between the ages of 30 and 50, occupying administrative, professional, and managerial roles.
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) recognises the importance of managing sub-health to restore overall wellness.
Our physicians at Raffles Chinese Medicine use a variety of treatment methods to restore the internal balance in your body. Herbal medication is customised to remedy your symptoms and discomfort. Acupuncture improves overall circulation to promote relaxation, improve sleep and alleviate pain symptoms. Cupping helps relieve muscular aches and tension frequently experienced by stressed individuals. Based on your symptoms, our TCM physicians will customise a treatment plan for you. Send us an enquiry for a consultation to improve your overall well-being.
Do you know that TCM promotes skin wellness too? By improving local circulation, facial acupuncture can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and facial lines. Herbal medication can improve skin complexion, relieve dullness and help reduce pigmentation problems.
TCM offers solutions to problems relating to obesity as well. Weight management can be achieved by a combination of the various treatment modalities comprising herbal medication, acupuncture, cupping, and Tui Na (acupressure), accompanied by proper dietary choices.
If your sub-health symptoms persist or become a concern, seek advice from a TCM physician to identify the possible causes.
