Rose is professional, caring, patient, compassionate and enthusiastic. She has always been interested in Chinese medicine since young. She has a family background of Chinese medicine as her grandparents and uncle are all Chinese medicine practitioners. Rose has a strong interest in women’s health (menstruation problems, menopause, and infertility), weight management (weight loss, weight maintenance), chronic pain (migraine, neck and shoulder pain, sciatica pain, tennis elbow, wrist and ankle pain) and Cosmetic acupuncture. Chinese medicine understands the skin is a reflection of the internal environment of our body. This holistic view of skin is the foundation of cosmetic acupuncture.
