After completing a five-year undergraduate program, Bachelor of Chinese Medicine and BSc (Hons) in Biomedical Science, I started working at a semi-governmental Chinese medicine centre. Besides common diseases, I treated many cancer patients, providing palliative and complementary treatment for the side effects and long term damage prevention. This opportunity inspired me to go further into the acupuncture for cancer treatment area, so I did a research paper on Acupuncture for cancer complementary treatment and prevention for my Master of Chinese Medicine (Acupuncture). In hope of getting into the research sector, I worked as Research Associate at Department of Psychiatry, University of Hong Kong in 2011. It is a Randomized Controlled Trial of insomnia acupuncture treatment for depression patients. My research career did not last long however, as I am more passionate about clinical work. Then I began my apprenticeship in 2012, following a local practitioner who specializes in Yijing/ I Ching medicine.

There are various differences in the Chinese medicine practice in Hong Kong compared to mainland China.


1) By the Chinese Medicine Ordinance, only traditional Chinese medicine measures are legal, and therefore nowesternmedicine interventions could be given by Chinese medicine practitioner (CMP). This makes us to focus more on pure Chinese medicne but not rely on the "quick and powerful" modern medicine .
2) Our medical practice styleandenvironment is more alike the western countries that privacy and communication are highly concerned, consultation fee and any other fees are open and clearly stated. Most patients know us because of word-of-mouth recommendation.
3) Unlike the post-graduate specialty training in mainland China hospitals, CMPs in Hong Kong are usually clinical-based, working asanall-round practitioner. They treat a large variety of diseases and use herbal medicine, acupuncture, moxibustion, manipulation, etc.
4) All Hong Kong undergraduates must take an open exam in English and the western medicine courses are conducted in English, so the Hong Kong CMPs has an advantage in English communication. 


Throughout my clinical practice for many years, the most common diseases I encountered are allergies, migraine, eczema, rhinitis, insomnia, menstrual problems, pregnancy sickness, hypertension, gout, pain management, post-stroke treatment and geriatric illness, etc. I use various treatment methods including herbal powder, herbs, acupuncture, moxibustion, the effect is prominent. 


In 2015 winter, I embraced a precise opportunity to start a new page in Slovenia. It was the first time for me to live in a place with snowy winter and yet I have always been touched with the warm hearts by Slovenian people. It is my honour and pleasure to serve Slovenians patients.

Acupuncture is the ancient healing art of inserting very fine needles into specific points along pathways on the body to activate the Qi energy. The flow of Qi can be disrupted in many ways, i.e. emotions, poor diet, overwork, trauma, stress, etc. Acupuncture acts to restore the natural flow of Qi bringing holistic balance back to the body.

Chinese Herbs

Chinese herbal medicine is one of the greatest herbal systems in the world, with an unbroken tradition dating back to the 3rd century BC.
Herbs are made up of leaves, stems, bark, roots or seeds. They each have a unique action. Cleverly combined, they perform a multitude of tasks and help bring a holistic balance back to the whole body.
