Let's Solve Chronic Pains for Good!

Our physiotherapists bring over 20-years of experience in managing chronic pain and problems like scoliosis to find, solve, and prevent pain from ever returning.

Common Causes of Body Pain

Why do parts of our body ache or hurt even without trauma or injury? We took a holistic, balanced view of all our patients’ complaints, and identified three common causes of such pain:

Bad everyday posture is a major cause of chronic pain

Bad Everyday Posture

Ever been told to “Stand up straight” for good posture? That advice could have been straight up wrong and causing you unnecessary pain! 


Every one of us is unique. While there is no one-size-fit-all solution, but we can work with you to build one that fits you best!

Acquiring poor movement habits

Everyday, we may be unconsciously developing movement habits that aren’t usually natural: Like swinging a golf club repeatedly, maintaining a strict dance posture, or even doing the dishes!

Our BalanceCore Approach will train you to continue doing these activities—but in the correct, most efficient, and pain-free way.

Poor movement habits causes muscles to ache unnecessarily
Underutilised muscles cause unnecessary strain on other muscles

Underutilised muscles

Our body defaults to movement habits that we’re used to since young, like how we walk, sit or stand. The same muscle groups get used again and again, whilst others never get used at all. The result? An imbalance of overworked and lazy muscles that cause strain and weakness at the same time.

BalanceCore shows you easy ways to balance the use of all muscle groups, so your body moves, works and plays with better habits in pain-free harmony.

Find the root cause of your pain



Our BalanceCore Approach does more than correct pain. It teaches you easier and better ways to go about your daily life, and trains you in natural movement techniques to excel at sports, work or play.


Regain Structural Stability

Diagnosis & Correction

Resetting joints alignment, regain muscle relaxation, reduce myofascial tension, restore basic functions


Daily Motion with Ease

Change Your Habits

Relearning of balance control, forming good habits of daily tasks (e.g walking, climbing, squatting, lifting, computer and mobile phone usage etc)


Enhance Your Body's Performance

Optimise & Maintain

Targeted strengthening and conditioning to build powerful exertion with good mechanics, and learning strategies in injury prevention during activities

The Best of the East and West

We believe in a holistic approach to pain management, combining the best of both Eastern medicine and Western approaches.

Our experienced physiotherapists use a unique blend of techniques to help identify and address the root causes of pain, incorporating traditional Chinese medicine practices and natural movement techniques to promote total body harmony, peace, and power.

Lasting Results

Live pain-free with better movement habits

Lasting results that improve over time—your pain should not return!

Our physiotherapists focus on finding and addressing the root cause of your pain, rather than just treating the symptoms. By adopting healthier habits and movement techniques, you can enjoy long-lasting relief and improved quality of life.

Live better with new movement habits.

Our BalanceCore Approach teaches you how to move naturally and efficiently, avoiding unnecessary strain on your body. By developing good posture, balance, and movement habits, you can reduce the risk of developing chronic pain and injuries.

Approach pain from more holistic perspectives.

We believe in taking a balanced, whole-body approach to pain management. Our holistic approach also means that we take into account your lifestyle, habits, and overall health when designing a treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.

Welcome to a Pain-free Everyday

With our BalanceCore Approach, we can treat a wide variety of conditions, from head to toe, across all age groups. 


Regardless of where and when your pain manifests, you can count on us to solve it.

I booked an appointment as my stiff neck had been hurting for 2 months despite going for a few massage sessions. My therapist Lecindra quickly identified the problem area and massaged the painful knot out, healing my neck after just one session. She was very patient and reassuring throughout. She even diagnosed problem areas in my back and glutes I had not known about, and taught me exercises to fix them before things get worse. I left the session having gained much needed awareness about my body, and I would definitely recommend everyone to try this out 🙂
Chloe from Balance Core was extremely patient and understanding of my pain points during my sessions. Besides pressing and relieving my pain points, she also taught me some simple exercises to do daily, which help me too! Thank you very much, Chloe, for being a kind listener and Balance Core for the provision of the relevant facilities!

I've been having whole back and pelvic area pains for many years and have been to countless massages to try to alleviate the pain. Michale (balance core) spent 7 sessions not just helping me to relieve the pains, but teaching me about how to correct my posture in walking, running, jumping, tennis etc. He's given me the awareness and skills to remedy my situation and I'm very grateful. I do wish they taught these things I'm primary skill as I've had to unlearn a lot of my bad habits. I highly recommend Balance Core, and Micheal has been nothing short of patient and amazing.

I strongly recommend as they are very professional and helped me design the exercises, thus avoiding a knee surgery. Special kudos to Chloe Ng for her patience and taking time to listen and the provide the exercise plan.
I (young adult) had recurring knee, calves & lower back related strains that have been affecting me for years and I finally decided to visit a Physiotherapist. I was assigned to Ms. Clare who professionally worked to understand my (not very positive) muscle memory habits & postures and identifying the root cause. I appreciate the breakdown of in-depth physio terms along with required routines/forms into simple and clear laymen terms that I can easily remember and continually develop the right postures/routine into my daily life. In summary – it is great feeling many years younger and no longer be fatigued by my recurring strains. Thanks to the Team @ Balance Core along with Ms. Clare for having high expertise and reliability 👍

It was always a pleasant session with Clare as she took time to ask about how I feel and understand my situations. Very professional. Recommended their service for those who need help.

Early Sept I had terrible backaches after some physical office work. After 6 sessions with you, I recovered 85% of my normal self. Now I will perform the exercises you taught me so as to achieve more improvement. I have learnt to adjust my body posture to be more natural with less tensed muscles. Appreciate your patience and the 'lessons' on how muscles work. Thanks Chloe, I enjoyed the sessions and the 'chit chats' we shared.

The Principal Physiotherapist, Michael, of Balance Core Physiotherapy Centre is a personal friend of my for 7 years. It has never occurred to me that I need to see him until I fell from the ladder and fractured my right ankle few months ago. 1.5 months into the accident, the orthopaedic referred me to see a Physiotherapist which I immediately turned to Michael. As I was still in crutches (both sides), I got my dad to drive and accompany me to see Michael. Michael assessed my injury and my x-ray films, massaged a few points, guided me on light exercises and taught me how to use the crutches more effectively and how to use just one crutches and told me to come back in a week. Miraclely, I went back a week later with just one crutches aid and I could come independently in a taxi. And on the 3rd or 4th visit, i went without crutches and I could drive there myself. This speaks alot on his skills as a Physiotherapist. Other than skills, Michael is also a honest and ethical person. Although he knew that I claim my insurance for the Physiotherapy sessions, he discharged me after 7 or 8 visits because he assessed that my legs were 90% corrected and the other 10% will heal by itself. He could have earned another 2, 5 or even 10 sessions of Physiotherapy until my legs are 101% healed but he didn't. This speaks alot of the honesty and professionalism in him which is hard to find now in this society.
