TCM treatment stations with multiple options closer to people’s homes


Shanghai plans to establish 50 traditional Chinese medicine community service stations this year. Among them, four are in Jiading.

Local residents can go to Jingyuan District Health Service Station for acupuncture, massage, TCM physical identification and TCM health management.

Aunt Jiang, 66, suffered from migraine due to cervical spondylosis and often had trouble falling asleep. To her surprise, after five sessions of acupuncture and massage, her condition improved.

“The health post is a short walk away, which is very convenient, and the doctors are very good,” Jiang said.

Yu Jianfeng, a traditional Chinese medicine general practitioner at Waigang Community Health Station, treated Jiang. Since July, he has been working at Jingyuan Police Station every Friday.

Yu said the treatment combines acupuncture and massage, and has been promoted throughout the district.

Jingyuan Station serves about 12,000 residents.

In order to meet residents’ needs for traditional Chinese medicine services, the station will increase the number of TCM consultation and treatment rooms and introduce new treatment equipment.

“We also specialize in treating dermatological disorders, including various forms of psoriasis, through the combination of traditional Chinese medicine and Western medicine,” Yu said.

The other three neighborhood health service stations have their own unique services.

The service station on Haibo Road in Jiangqiao City uses acupuncture and integrative medicine in pediatrics to prevent and treat spleen and stomach diseases in children.

There is a special outpatient clinic for childhood anorexia, growth retardation, spleen and stomach diseases.

Shuguang Gas Station in Nanxiang City offers acupuncture and moxibustion treatments. Moxibustion therapy combined with acupuncture can be very effective for many diseases and conditions, including back pain, muscle stiffness, headaches, migraines, tendonitis, arthritis, digestive disorders, l anxiety and women’s health issues such as menstrual cramps, irregular periods and infertility.

Beiguan Gas Station in Malu City is the best for traditional Chinese gynecological treatment.

It hosts public lectures and free consultations from time to time. The resort’s TCM practitioners are good at treating age-related diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, and strokes.

The four neighborhood health service stations are part of the city’s effort to provide “last mile” TCM services to residents.
