Top 10 TCM Clinics in Penang Island [2022]



Penang Island is part of the state of Penang, on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. With an area of 295 km2 (114 sq mi), Penang Island is the fourth-largest island wholly in Malaysia, after Banggi Island, Bruit Island and Langkawi Island. As of 2019, the island has a total population of 1,774,600 with 42.8% Malay, 39.1% Chinese and 9.4% Indian. The island is connected with the mainland by the Penang Bridge and the Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah Bridge.

Globally, healthcare trends are trending toward a more holistic approach. Traditional healthcare wisdom is now widely recognised and used to supplementing modern medicine. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient system of health and wellness that has been used in China for thousands of years. As the Chinese occupies a high percentage of the population in Penang Island, TCM became indispensable and popular in the medical industry of Penang Island. While Western medicine focuses mainly on treating diseases, TCM on the other hand, looks at your entire well-being. Here are the 10 best TCM clinics in Penang Island.
