Gentle and effective way to say good bye to health problems
Acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese healing which balances the body, mind and spirit. Very fine sterile stainless steel needles (about 0.25mm) are inserted into the skin and muscle layers at carefully selected points to stimulate the body’s own healing process. The acupuncture points are located on the meridian networks that cover the body. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the meridian system is a path through which the life-energy known as “Qi” flows.
Acupuncture treats pain effectively. In most of the cases, the pain level can be cut down by at least 50% up to 100% which also means patients able to move their painful joints or muscles more freely even only after the first treatment given. After the treatment, the pain or symptoms will come back but the pain level will be less, probably 10% to 50% of the pain remained depends on individual. However, the pain level will be gradually reduced after each treatment till the pain disappears completely. Most of the acupuncture patients are very impressed by the treatment results and could not understand how it happens, all they know is they don't have to take pain killer anymore, move and walk freely which allows them to go back to their normal lifestyle.
Everything is the same as conventional acupuncture except all the needling is only inserted on the abdomen region. You will be lying comfortably on your back exposing only the abdomen area. The needle retention time is approximately 30 minutes. The technique has been found to be particularly powerful in treating chronic or long-term diseases and problems of the major internal organs, as well as joint problems and muscle pain.
Cupping is an ancient Chinese therapy method which a local suction is created on the skin by either using heat or hand pumps device. This method usually is used in combination with acupuncture to treat musculoskeletal pain where this action promotes blood flow to the injury areas. Patients normally like it because it is painless and feel good after that. There will be bruises forms after the suctions, however they will disappear within 3 - 7 days.
Moxabustion is a traditional Chinese medicine therapy using moxa made from dried mugwort. Not only that, moxabustion is the best treatment method for chronic problems due to "deficient conditions" (weakness), for example fatigue where moxa can help to restore the body energy, same for those after surgery patients that feel weak, moxa can help to accelerate the recovery.
In this procedure, a lubricating medium, such as massage oil, is applied to the skin of the area to be treated. A smooth-edged instrument is used to apply short or long strokes on the skin, typically in the area of pain or on the back parallel to the spine. This stroking motion creates raised redness or bruising which normal disappears within a week. While Guasha is most commonly used to treat pain, this method is also effective to address conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, colds, flu, fever, heatstroke, fibromyalgia, strains, sprains, and muscle spasms.

Why I’m an acupuncturist
I migrated to Auckland with my husband in 2006, I have a BSc in Food Technology and have been working as food technologists for 14 years. Life has been wonderful in New Zealand until I experienced some health problems and western medicine was unable to provide the complete solution for me, then I went for Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and found it worked really well on me. I was totally inspired by the Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine therapies, and decided to take the new challenge in my life to study TCM. I could not believe how wisely the TCM theories were established by our ancestors 3000 years ago. The more I study about TCM, the more that I like about it because I knew that the treatment methods are so beneficial which will allow me to help people those are seeking for alternative treatments, sometimes this can change someone life completely in a good way!
Education and professional skills
I have finished my 3 years study at the New Zealand College of Chinese Medicine in Auckland completing my Bachelor in Health Science (Acupuncture). I specialized in Classical and Abdominal acupuncture. They both work equally well for most of the cases, however Abdominal acupuncture is very effective for patients with weaker body constitution or for those afraid of needling because the needle sensation on the abdominal is very mild.
My consultation style is respectful, client-centered and solution-focused. I strongly believe that having a pleasant conversation with my patients is essential so that they feel relaxed and enjoy the whole process which is also important for therapeutic effect.
I can speak Mandarin, Cantonese and Malay other than English.
Being an acupuncture practitioner, I gain much more job satisfaction by healing people suffering from various health problems, some poor patients have lived with the problems for a long time and yet have not find the right treatment, thanks god that acupuncture worked for them, this is the magical moment I would really like to share with my patients.
