What sparked your interest in massage therapy?
Growing up I was always interested in sport and how the human body functions. I have always loved helping people and decided to study sports science to create an avenue towards working within the sports field. I enjoyed every aspect of my degree and learning about biomechanics, anatomy and physiology. Following my degree I decided my next step was a diploma in Sports Massage which led me to further my opportunities and create avenues into working with international sporting teams.

Why do you think patients should utilize massage?
Massage is a huge benefit for managing chronic pain and especially for post injury rehabilitation. I believe it is important to incorporate massage within a stressful busy lifestyle as it has many benefits such as reducing stress, alleviating tension, reducing anxiety and promoting better sleep. When massage is incorporated within a training program it increases recovery rate, increases range of movement and reduces risk of injury.

What patients need to know about you or your style of treatment?
My preferred treatment style usually incorporates deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy release so treatments generally are quite painful but it’s good pain!

What sparked your interest in massage therapy?
I always wanted to be in health care. I was always fascinated with the effectiveness of Massage
Therapy and the complexity of the human anatomy, especially during the healing process.
Massage therapy has provided me with many direct and indirect benefits, particularly for my
past injuries. I now strive to assist, educate and empower people to manage their health and
wellness.

Why do you think patients should utilize massage?
Being pro-active and taking preventative measures for your health can assist greatly in your
well being. I think many people don’t know when they are uncomfortable, or if there’s an issue,
until they are told, or they experience excruciating discomfort. Symptoms are only one of many
health indicators.

Projects or initiatives you’re a part of in the Hong Kong community:
Focus on female leadership and youth empowerment in Hong Kong
What patients need to know about you or your style of treatment
My approach to massage is to identify the cause and treat the cause. It’s important to identify
where the discomfort stems from, and not where the symptoms are felt. I work with the
patient on their treatment plan and together, we work to address the issue. Engagement is key

me were very painful but it felt immediately a lot better.

Why do you think patients should utilize massage?
Massage therapy is a great way to de-stress especially in Hong Kong where a good
portion of the workers are under constant pressure and stress. Massage can also be
used as a modality to relieve pain, assist in the healing process, reduce swelling, and
increase blood circulation.
