I have been passionate about caring and treating people that are actively involved in their safety and well-being in various ways.

I am originally from South Korea. I was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Republic of Korea Marine Corps and carried out my duties faithfully. I was promoted to captain and resigned my commission after 6 years. I migrated to Australia in 2004 and worked as a registered nurse after completed a Bachelor of Nursing degree at the University of Newcastle. I decided to undergo a career change after discovered new possibilities from Traditional Chinese Medicine.

I hold a four-year Bachelor of Health Science degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS). I completed a comprehensive clinical internship at the UTS Traditional Chinese Medicine Clinic and undertook a further internship at Dong-Eui Medical Centre, South Korea. I am an AHRPA registered practitioner and member of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA).

I apply a combination of modalities in my treatments including acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, Tui-Na, cupping, moxibustion, Gua-Sha and lifestyle advise. With a collaborative intent, I aim to empower people with the knowledge and skills they can use for themselves to promote a healthy and balanced life.

My main clinical interests are:

  • General well-being

  • Musculoskeletal pain

  • Women’s health – menstrual irregularities, fertility

  • Digestive disorders

  • Stress, anxiety, sleep disturbances

  • Weight management

  • Immune support – for children and adults
