ARICH Tan C S, chief executive officer and founder of Alternate Wellness Holdings P/L, is an entrepreneur who believes in getting results in the shortest possible time. His flair for spotting new consumer trends and business opportunities has given him an edge in the highly competitive wellness industry.
Alternate Wellness Holdings is a winner of the One Asia Awards in the Emerging category.
While he started his career as a police officer, Mr Tan has been managing his own business for the past 15 years. He has work experience in the fields of sales and marketing, human resource, business development, training and customer relations.
Mr Tan became a business and marketing consultant 10 years ago and was involved in businesses such as consultancy services for business and marketing, music recording, production houses and OEM of skincare ranges.
Three years ago, by chance he came in touch with the alternate healthcare segment. Through his business ventures, he had started to notice that more people are suffering from aches and pains and their only means of a cure is to go for surgery. With the global ageing population, higher standard of living and greater awareness of a healthy lifestyle, he saw a significant business value in developing Natural Healings.
"The nature of the business is to inspire people to relook their lives and be proactive in managing their health. Being able to help thousands of people recover from their medical conditions and chronic pain and keeping them healthy is what I found most meaningful and rewarding," says Mr Tan.
Natural Healings envisions a world without medication or surgery, where individuals are empowered to harness their innate healing abilities to achieve optimal health. Opening the first flagship outlet at Parkway Parade, it has gained the trust of many patients with its numerous success stories.
The positive feedback about the clinic inspired him to expand the business from one outlet to the current five within a short span of 30 months. These clinics have improved the lives of many individuals by helping them to achieve their health goals.
Mr Tan says that he has since begun operating various strategic business units with the primary focus on wellness, beauty, spa, nutrition related companies and product lines. He has integrated clientele bases within the business units for a fast track growth.
Natural Healings Chiropractic and PhysioCare is one of the strategic repertoire brands and business units of Alternate Wellness Holdings P/L (AWH). Wholly-owned subsidiaries under AWH include the HAACH Group of Companies, Dr HAACH Premium DermaSuite, Natural Health and NH Orthotics.
