Singapore -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/08/2014 -- Urbanrehab: Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Specialists, a multi-specialty practice based in Singapore, has just announced that they have secured a strategic partnership with a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Physician named Mark Chern that will allow them to offer their clients Traditional Chinese Medicine in Singapore.
In addition to its core services, which include physiotherapy, hand therapy and deep tissue release therapy, Urbanrehab Pte Ltd can now provide additional TCM services such as acupuncture in Singapore, Gua Sha and bodywork.
“We have always believed in integrative health approaches to help our patients, which led us to develop our Urbanrehab TCM Division, to provide a more holistic health and healing approach for the benefit of our clients,” noted an article on Urbanrehab’s website, adding that TCM is based on a tradition of more than 2,000 years, and includes treating people with a variety of herbal medicines, acupuncture, exercise, massage and/or dietary therapy.
For people who are looking for Gua Sha in Singapore, Urbanrehab Pte Ltd can now offer this East Asian healing technique. The word “Gua,” means to scrape or rub, and “Sha” refers to a reddish, elevated millet-like skin rash. As an article on the Urbanrehab website explained, Gua Sha is typically used when a person is experiencing pain that is part of either an acute or chronic pain/disorder. It may also be used to help treat or prevent the common cold, bronchitis, flu, asthma and much more.
Cupping in Singapore is another new service that is now offered at Urbanrehab Pte Ltd. Cupping, which is a type of Chinese massage, involves TCM physicians placing several glass “cups” or open spheres on the patient’s body.
“Cupping works on the body's meridian system, to ‘open up’ any stagnant points for a better flow of Qi, and to rejuvenate certain meridians and organs that are not functioning at their optimum,” the article noted, adding that scientifically, this technique is known to help activate the lymphatic system, promote blood circulation and aid deep tissue repair.
