Sin Kang TCM requires all patients to undergo our registration process before you can consult with our TCM specialists. We will study the complete medical and pain history you’ve provided before we can offer a suitable treament programme.
Assessment of your condition may involve identifying the location where you feel neck pain and what type of movements aggravate the pain you’re feeling. Through an in-depth consultation with us, we can determine exactly where your pain is coming from. Whether it is from facet joints, discs, or the neck’s muscles or ligaments, we can develop a pain management plan to help relieve your neck pain.
Providing neck pain relief involves a combination of our pain management methods:
Tui Na Neck Massage
Tui Na, which translates to “push and pull,” is a traditional Chinese massage therapy that can alleviate neck pain symptoms as well as help maintain your daily overall health. It refers to a variety of TCM bodywork and massages. This treatment uses dynamic acupressure techniques coupled with Chinese medical principles to loosen up and remove Qi blockages at key points in the body.
This type of neck massage can also be used to treat and address areas of the neck with disharmony patterns. Tui Na targets and applies pressure on acupoints using the hands, fists, palms, and fingers instead of needles. Our Tui Na therapists in Singapore can adjust the intensity of each session to suit your pain tolerance level and ensure you are comfortable throughout.
Acupuncture Neck Pain Treatment
Acupuncture is one of the most popular TCM services in Singapore and has a wide range of health benefits. It is a non-invasive TCM treatment that accesses the neck area’s pressure points through a needle. The insertion of a hair-thin needle will hardly cause any perceptible pain or discomfort, but does plenty to aid and signal your body to stimulate your blood circulation and where to direct it to. This stimulation is responsible for the healing and pain relief of your sprained neck or any other neck pain.
Our painless acupuncture treatment helps restore normal blood flow by stimulating blood circulation within the body, releasing natural ‘pain killer’ hormones and enzymes such as endorphins, immunity cells, and neurotransmitters. This clears Qi blockage in the body and provides long-lasting neck pain relief.
Cupping for Neck Pain Relief
Many Singaporeans have embraced cupping for its pain relief and rejuvenation benefits. Cupping treatments involve producing a suction force to aid in stimulating blood circulation to help alleviate neck pain. It uses heated glass or bamboo cups to pull the skin, removing any blockages to blood circulation and stimulates blood flow. This draws the blood into the area where there is neck muscle pain. When blood flow and circulation are stimulated, they can restore Qi flow in affected areas of the body and help stimulate the body’s natural healing process. Aside from relieving neck pain, cupping can also be used for addressing other common ailments including high blood pressure, back pain, or nasal congestion.
