Event Details

Ever wondered about all the Chinese herbs that you see the at the Traditional Chinese Medicine shops? Heard of Jamu, the traditional Indonesian medicine still popular amongst the Malay community here? What about Ayurevedic – one of the world’s oldest medical systems which originated in India? Scandinavian Women’s Association wants to help you answer these questions!

On this tour, we will pierce the veil of mystery surrounding some of the Eastern Medicine
traditions as we visit 3 places of healing to observe and learn from practitioners and teachers about acupuncture, herbal medicine, massage, and other remedies, which have been developed throughout Asia over the centuries for a variety of ailments. This tour is as fascinating as it is unique and it may make you think twice about popping that Panadol next time you have a headache!

With us we have Italian Womans Group and our amazing tour guide Charlotte Chu. She have been a tour guide for the last 9 years and love every minute of it! She’s a self professed ‘information junkie’ with an insatiable appetite for knowledge of Singapore’s history and heritage. On her tours, she try to evoke all our five senses: interesting sites with visuals of past events and places; informative commentary with a dose of humour; drink and snack stops to uphold Singapore’s reputation as a “Food Paradise”.

RSVP to no later than Sunday 13. November.
