I was born with a gift - a gift that was disguised as anxiety, depression, fatigue, chronic pain and overall poor health. All this suffering led me on an amazing journey of healing and self-discovery.
In 2001, as an exchange student in Hong Kong, I met a famous doctor by the name of Choi Sifu 蔡師傅. I would go to him for help for my poor health. He worked in a small clinic in the Yau Ma Tei District, tending to over 100 people per day. I saw many patients in his clinic getting great results, many who shared their own success stories:
"My mother had daily migraines for 20 years. We went to see so many doctors and specialists but it was only till Doctor Choi’s sessions that she was able to feel better."
The daughter and her mother both cried when sharing this story to the other patients. I was also very moved. There were many other stories like this that I heard which highlighted Dr. Choi’s skills to heal many difficult health issues. People were very thankful for what Chinese medicine could do for them. The whole experience of meeting Doctor Choi and observing his patients heal and share their stories was what inspired me to become an Acupuncturist. My journey later continued to lead me to meet and study with many great doctors and healers from different traditions.
Today, after years of practicing Acupuncture and seeing patients, I am still as passionate as the first day I started healing people. I visit Doctor Choi often when I am in Hong Kong to express my gratitude. Like him, I strive to help people through commitment, integrity and compassion.
