Look to centuries-old Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques to help you achieve your ideal figure, naturally and safely.

If getting into shape is one of your goals in the Year of the Dog, try Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

For many years now, its practitioners have used this ancient treatment for slimming and weight management.

TCM involves a range of therapies, from acupuncture to massage, to facilitate natural weight loss by improving your overall health, boosting your metabolism, encouraging your body to eliminate toxins, suppressing your appetite so that you don’t overeat, and stimulating blood circulation.

Ma Kuang MKB TCM Wellness Centre offers several therapies designed to help you slim down.

In TCM, excess weight is said to be due to overeating, postpartum swelling, stress or age.

Depending on the issue that has caused you to gain or retain weight, you’ll be prescribed a personalised slimming treatment to ensure you get great results, fast.

Your TCM physician will also analyse your body constitution before recommending the right therapy. These include:

This popular treatment stimulates specific acupoints to modulate your meridian system, which in turn suppresses your appetite.

At the same time, it regulates your metabolism and encourages fat burning. The best part is acupuncture can be used to target specific areas, such as the belly, arms and thighs. 


This is the most recommended slimming treatment at MKB. It combines massage, trigger point and other manual techniques to stimulate acupoints, the meridian system, muscles and/or nerves, in order to unblock the flow of qi (vital energy), improve circulation, regulate visceral function and boost the immune system.

To optimise weight loss, your physician may recommend the Slimming Tuina Therapy. It focuses on the abdominal region to improve circulation and eliminate toxins.

Abdominal Detox Massage

The therapist massages along the meridians to restore visceral functions and strengthen your constitution, so as to facilitate weight loss and its maintenance. However it does not cause any discomfort.

These strategies aim to normalise visceral function, rebalance qi, improve circulation, and regulate mood swings, so that the endocrine system can do its job, and the body can function more effectively to get rid of excess water, waste and toxins.

No unpleasant side effects

Not only will they help manage your weight, TCM therapies can also help treat other issues such as stress and bloating.

MKB assures the treatments are safe, with little or no side effects like dizziness, dry mouth, nausea and palpitations. And best of all, there’s no need to starve as there’s no painful dieting involved.
