I was born in Taiwan and studied Philosophy, Psychology & Physiology at University College, Oxford.

After graduation, I worked in investment banking for 8 years before entering a 4-year degree-level training in acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.  In 2004, I gained my qualification with Northern College in York.

More about me

  • My style of acupuncture is heavily influenced by Dr Young Wei-Chieh, a direct disciple of Master Tung.  I was also fortunate enough to have studied with late Dr HH Ni and late Dr Richard Tan. Both shared their invaluable insights from decades of clinical practice.
  • I host workshops on advanced acupuncture theories and techniques.  I also hold a Postgraduate Certificate in Clinical Education from University of Leeds.

  • PSYCH-K® facilitator
  • Trustee treasurer of Leeds Bereavement Forum, a charity aiming to remove social stigma about death, to provide training and signpost bereavement services in Yorkshire.
