I used Yu Guo and Ma Kuang before.

I find Yu Guo is very good for small kids (esp young kids tui na) - it's practically like production line but the therapists are pretty good. You have to get a number, then go down to the basement (hate the basement, the aura don't feel good) and wait for doctor to see you. Once she has seen the child, you then wait for a therapist to attend to you. They will massage according to prescription. Medication is obtained from 'upstairs' at the counter where payment is made also. So far I recall Yu Guo medication in liquid form.

Ma Kuang I use more for massotherapy. I ever brought my child for sensitive nose - the doctor was quite recommended. It got better whilst on medication but then somehow hanta kaki - we stopped after a few months and kinda let him outgrow the problem. Ma Kuang medication is mostly in powder form - so if it's young kids, may be a bit hard to ingest.

Haven't tried EYS but I understand the charges are pretty pricey.

i went to Ma Kuang at the end.. recommendation from friend. after 3 weeks plus of tcm med for my boy.. his cough with phlegm solved and his sensitive nose is improving.. i continue to see still.. as sinsei said the herbs help to strengthen his immunity too.. not cheap in all spend few hundreds liao.. but if can help him all is worth it.. i din do the tui na at makuang as sinsei said not necessary yet.
