Company Name: Health Customized
My interest in paediatric acupuncture began with my own personal experience with childhood chronic health conditions which continued into adulthood. The generic western treatments did not adequately address the challenges I faced as a child and my parents were simply told “she’ll grow out of.” Just like any parent, it was very difficult for my parents to accept such fatalistic view when their child was suffering. As a child, it was difficult for me to see my parents constantly worrying about my health. This led me to become curious about pediatric health and wellbeing, to give children a greater opportunity to grow into healthy adults.
I was drawn to Traditional Chinese Medicine’s (TCM) holistic approach to heal the mind and the body as one entity, and to treat the cause of the disease rather than the symptoms. In TCM each child is unique and the treatment plan is customized to the child’s individual needs.
I have a background in biochemistry and microbiology, giving me a vast knowledge across both Western and Eastern interpretations of the body and health. I take the best of both worlds to offer an individualized treatment for your child’s condition. I believe health education and lifestyle choices are as important as what happens in the treatment room. The best results come from the practitioner and the parents working together as a team.
