We have but the utmost respect for those who dedicate themselves to the noble pursuit of knowledge and man’s well-being, not to mention survival. Though highly coveted, the medical profession remains a scarce force, and among them is one find that is just a little rarer than usual. Graduated from Shaanxi University, KC Ng is possibly one of few young, modern practitioners in the country trained in the art of organic healing, specifically Traditional Chinese Medicine, with his own practice in the form of 1TCM Acupuncture Clinic, now open in three locations including Wisma Cosway, 1Mont Kiara and Seri Kembangan.

Armed with experience, acupuncture needles and a steady hand, KC is poised to tackle health issues ranging from rheumatism, gout to spinal/ back and nerve pain. Meanwhile, his clinic offers a full range of traditional Chinese treatments and therapies in the areas of Orthopaedics, Gynaecology, Cosmetology, Dermatology, slimming, moxibustion and herbal medicine.

When asked about the best way to detox and overall wellness, he replied, “You don’t need to take any supplement. When you have enough sleep on time, your liver will naturally detox. Fasting for a day or two, taking only water and fruits helps too.”

For his own well-being, KC meditates and goes on spiritual Buddhist retreats, having been ordained several times. “Life is simple. When you meditate and practise dharma, you will feel very peaceful. What’s more meaningful and important, for me at least, is the chance to help others; the more people I get to benefit the better,” says KC.
