International Patients

We have international patients who travel from outside of Singapore to seek treatment here, hence, the information below is designed to help you plan your visit and stay in Singapore while you receive your treatment. They may come from nearby countries including Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia or as far as India and Sri Lanka.

Traveling to a foreign country away from family and friends can be stressful. Lifesystems Chiropractic aims to make it easier for you, our international patients, to receive care by coordinating your chiropractic and personal needs prior to your arrival as well as during your stay.

As an international patient, your care is facilitated from the moment you contact us about your treatment. High-quality personalized services complement chiropractic care and assure a comfortable stay for all international patients and their families.

Traveling to Singapore

It is also our pleasure to assist you with your travel arrangements to Singapore, including making arrangements with a travel agent, hotel reservations, and transportation to and from the airport.

In general, a visa is not required for a foreigner on a social visit of less than 14 days. For more information on visa requirements, please see the countries requiring visa page from the Immigration & Checkpoint Authority.

If your visit to Singapore is longer, you may apply to the Immigration & Checkpoint Authority or call the Information Hotline at Tel: 1800 391 6400 (toll-free in Singapore only) after your arrival. The processing of extension of stay will take at least one working day.

We can suggest local places of interest for you and your family to visit and take advantage of the many attractions Singapore has to offer. For more information, please visit the Singapore Tourism Board.

FAQ for International Patients

For most cases, I recommend our international patients to plan for at least 7 days to Singapore. Obviously, it will be more advantageous if you can stay for up to 2 weeks. However, many of international clients have to work too. We typically can see measurable results in 1 week.

To give you an idea how it works, patients are requested to come everyday for your treatment for about 5-6 days. Then they fly home. Depending on their situation, a follow-up visit in 1-3 months may be recommended. 

To prevent no shows, you must email or Whatsapp a copy of your flight ticket. Give us your available dates and times and we will give you the appointment where available.

No, all prices are the same for people of all nations.

Our doctor is a member in good standing with The Chiropractic Association Singapore. His license and education status has been vetted that he is Board Certified Chiropractic Doctor in the United States of America.

Your spinal column is a series of movable bones (vertebra), which begin at the base of your skull and end at the center of your hips. Thirty-one pairs of spinal nerves extend down the spine from the brain and exit through a series of openings. The nerves leave the spine and form a complicated network that influences every organ, tissue and cell of your body. When a spinal vertebra shifts out of alignment, it may put damaging pressure on the spinal nerves causing interruption to the vital nerve flow within your body. This condition is referred to as Vertebral Subluxation and is the cause of most of the unwanted conditions people suffer from every day.

When the vertebrae are subluxated, the nerve passageway is blocked, and the life energy flowing through the nerve can be choked off. Any spinal imbalance will cause areas of the spinal column to work harder in order to compensate for the area that is out of balance. This interferes with your body’s innate healing ability and lowers your resistance.

Vertebral Subluxation is the result of not properly maintaining the spine. The most current research shows that the spine should be maintained throughout life, from the beginning. Properly maintained, the model spine can easily last 120-150 years with minimal degeneration or arthritis. The ideal shape of the spine represents an amazing balance between all the forces of nature that constantly challenge us- such as compression, tension and shear. How efficient we are at resisting these forces is directly related to our health.

Unfortunately, distortion of the spine is epidemic today. Due to overwhelming and repetitive forces of modern life coupled with physical traumas, motor vehicle accidents, poor posture from computer use and mobile gadgets, emotional and mental stress, the spine becomes subluxated and malformed. The resulting vertebral subluxation complex has been found to be the underlying cause of many health problems. When the spine is misaligned or subluxated it will wear down or degenerate at a much more rapid rate, just as a car tire will wear down when not properly aligned.

It is important to understand that although chiropractic care is very effective in reducing pain, chiropractic is not based on pain. It is incorrect to rely on how we feel to determine how healthy we are. By the time you have a symptom it means that the problem or abnormal function has been there for a long time. For instance:

In 40% of people having heart disease, the first symptom is death from a heart attack. Many terminal cancer patients have no pain or symptom until the late stages. Significant degeneration of the spine can occur without symptoms. If you rely on symptoms, or already have some, your health could seriously be in jeopardy.

For instance, some people seek care because of a specific pain or area of trouble in their bodies. For them, they will stop treatment as soon as their problem becomes less apparent. With simple conditions like sinusitis, as few as 4-8 treatments may stop the sinus problems. With other conditions, like dystonia or severe spinal problems, treatment could last sixty treatments without exhausting the potential for continued optimal improvement.

Some have larger, less concrete goals when they receive therapy. If a person wishes to optimize their bodily functions or they have serious or complicated conditions affecting their health, treatment can be more of an open-ended situation; they can get treatments over the course of a longer time period.

Either of these plans can be right for the individual. Some people may even change their concepts as treatment progresses, and this is fine too. The nature of Functional Cranial Release (FCR) treatment, with its typically long lasting results, allows a person to stop treatment at almost any time (after the completion of each treatment sequence).

A person’s body changes at different rates–No two persons have the same identical body type. This is because people have different genetic forms and different life experiences. By the time people come to me for treatment, they are unique, individual structures.

In a way, people are like puzzles for me to untangle. Some puzzles are easier to solve than others, and some people’s bodies change more quickly than others. I never know how fast a person will change. I never know how much a person will move from a single treatment. I never know what tomorrow’s treatment will cause or require. I simply, continually release the obstructions in a person’s mechanical structure that prevents them from moving towards the ideal structure their body was designed to have, free of deformity of life’s traumas.
