Working with the physio certainly gives me a different angle to look at health problems, I strongly believe the tendency of combination of traditional Chinese medicine and western medicine is the right way to achieve a better human well-beings.

I am still working and studying from my uncle who is based in Mount Albert. He used to work in Provincial Hospital, majoring in neurology and muscular-skeletal specialities.
