The Quadrants of Health

Achieve a fuller health in the midst of the festive celebrations by understanding the quadrants of health. The meaning of each quadrant is embodied in a common mandarin festive greeting - 花好月圆 (huā hǎo yuè yuán) , which means “May everything in your life be in its place with perfect happiness”. Let’s understand them quarter by quarter.

Flower

Flowers are frequently used in Chinese culture for various auspicious representations. As the Mid-Autumn Festival coincides with the blossoming of Osmanthus flowers, this fragrant flora has become infused in the mid-autumn tradition of Osmanthus cakes and wines during this festive season. Osmanthus is believed to be synonymous with longevity, and Osmanthus wine is often offered as a toast to the elders for good health and longevity.

In the modern context, to enjoy good quality of life, regular health checks are encouraged to ensure our health is on the right track. Start by getting an overview of your health with packages catered to all ages and needs.

Moon

A full moon symbolises reunion and togetherness. As such, mooncakes are made to be round, and eaten together with the family as a symbol of reunion.

Fun fact: A mooncake is not supposed to be eaten whole, but is cut into the number of pieces corresponding to the number of family members in your household. This signifies how each member (pieces) is connected and thus, comes together as a whole.
