De Ren Tang myopia treatment

[ Sponsored ]

We are familiar with “Western” approach for myopia treatment, lasik or eye drops (for juniors) to slow down myopia. But I had never heard of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) treatment for myopia before.

Imagine my surprise and doubt when De Ren Tang (德仁堂) invited us for a trial 🙂
myopia treatment

Is it effective, is it harmful, are there any side effects? I got the same questions too when both me and Boon Yee went for our assessment. But I do know TCM has been around for thousands of years.

No medication, acupuncture nor herbal ingestion, thus there are no side effects. De Ren Tang offers age old practice of massaging the body nerves and 筋 (jin1).

The session will start with assessment of our eyesight, this is done before and after every session.

For the younger ones, Chinese TCM believes that posture and body plays an important part for eyesight well being. Thus massaging our back (spine), and nerves play a crucial part of treatment.

Structured massage will focus on accupoints (穴位) for eye improvement.

Massaging around the eye socket and scalp to relax our eye muscles. In modern society, when we are stressed or tense, we can feel uncomfortable (throbbing) at our temple.

We learnt how TCM use massage to disperse the negative energy and improve our well being.

Gua Sha (刮痧) around our eyes to relax any muscle tension and improve blood circulation (气血循环). Blood capillaries carry blood around our body system, Gua Sha would help to clear congestion (堵塞) along the paths.

We can see Boon Yee’s face flush after every Gua Sha session.

We were told above TCM treatments are very common in China, primary school going children have “eye exercises” in classroom twice a day to improve their vision too.

Have I improved my eyesight? Measurements are taken after every session, and you should see some improvements after a few sessions.

Myopia treatment effectiveness will be different from person to person. In Singapore, a myopic child most likely inherits the genes from parents.

TCM practices would still encourage good eye habits from young to preserve our eyesight (30cm from book, minimise prolonged screen time, avoid reading in dim lighting etc)

Yee looks forward to his weekly treatment. The doctor’s tender massage and soothing ambiance always lull him into a state of total relaxation. Soothing, and I felt happy for him too 🙂

De Ren Tang is recommending a minimum of 10 or 20 sessions to really feel the improvements. Each session for a child and adult are 60 and 30 minutes respectively.

Do take note that De Ren Tang’s treatment is more effective for kids as their corneas are still growing. Continual treatment will be possible to slow down myopia degree and even improve eyesight.

However, adults’ eyesight degrees have already stabilised, treatment will only control myopia from getting worse. TCM massage session will reduce tension around eye sockets.

De Ren Tang (德仁堂) would like to raise awareness for TCM method of myopia treatment. If you are looking for eyesight well being, do give De ren Tang treatment a trial. You may view De Ren Tang doctors (医师) certifications here.

Each package is $880 for 11 sessions, first time customer from our blog will enjoy up to 30% discount.

Wet Hello Kitty run, but SUPER Fun!

[ Media Invite ]

You seldom see Daddy (and boys) wear Pink Hello Kitty t-shirts. But we had to make an exception for Hello Kitty’s biggest fan, Boon Xin.

If the girl loves it, Daddy will even pose girly photos with plush toys haha (Hello Kitty Goodies bags collection earlier)

Nevermind the vehicle and human jams, never mind the downpour. 17,000 feline fans had gathered at Harbour Front area for Hello Kitty run.

Everyone was eager to paste some cute tattoos.

Infront all Gloomy, but behind us all Sunny :p

Those standing near the front sang “Happy Birthday” with Hello Kitty and Daniel.

But why Hello Kitty never sing “Rain rain go away”? Cats and dogs pour down on Sentosa, and many families took shelter.

Although our underwear is not really soaked, we still have Fun and Wet photos to share :p

Met the super garang Cheekiemonkies, who chiong all the way in the rain 🙂


Due to the heavy rain, there was a huge jam at the finishing point. Everyone was queuing to get their Hello Kitty Run finisher medal. Those who fail to get their medals can pop by Hello Kitty Run Singapore Fanpage for instructions.

Kudos to the Hello Kitty organisers!
Although there was some hiccups at the end point, the volunteers stood in the rain to guide the runners. Running in the rain was a FUN experience for many families and friends.

Goodies bags collection (earlier) and the shuttle buses back to Vivocity was orderly and prompt.

Kids try to decorate our courtesy XC90 into a wedding car :p

Happy 40th Birthday Hello Kitty! You still look so cute 🙂
