Meet Dr Xiang Jun

I am a home grown Singaporean who holds a Doctorate degree in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and has been in this field of practice for 15 years and counting since 2005.

My quest for knowledge and desire to fully understand and explain the workings behind the thousands-year-old Chinese Medicine saw me through the journey of finally being conferred the highest level of qualifications for both Chinese Medicine and Biomedical Science. At the same time, my spiritual inclinations have further led me to be trained under teachers and Masters of various other forms of alternative medicines such as Ayurveda, Yoga, Reiki and Metaphysical studies such as Bazi, Feng Shui, Physiognomy, Crystal Healing. As such, my practice is usually not simply a TCM practice you find in commercialised clinics, but a combination of Western Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Traditional Indian Medicine and Energy medicines.

 
I see the shortcomings in Western medicine and their limitations to providing real solutions to illnesses
 

As years of practice went by, my belief and confidence in traditional alternative medicines and energy medicines have increased exponentially as I experienced first hand of their effectiveness in treatment and healing for patients.

At the same time, I see the shortcomings in Western medicine and their limitations to providing real solutions to illnesses.

Yet traditional alternative medicines and energy medicines are still viewed in scepticism by mass public due to the lack of rigorous scientific proofs. Nevertheless, energy and healing exist and work independent of scientific proofs. The need for proofs, statistics and explanations is merely to satisfy the ignorance in all of us.

As such, I find purpose to use my title, expertise and knowledge in medicines

of all fields to demystify alternative medicines and energy healing.

Educating people about what is actually good for them, empowering them to make wiser decisions in taking care of themselves when healthy and seek the right help when ill.
