About Us

Renee Chan is a native of Hong Kong where Chinese Medicine is part of the culture. Her decision to pursue a career in Chinese Medicine stemmed from her own declining health during her first career as an art director in advertising companies. The long hours and stressful work situation slowly caused her to fall ill frequently.

It was around this time that she decided to take a break from her career and eventually started working for a holistic doctor. Through working at the clinic, she discovered the joy of witnessing patients heal. She was inspired to follow this path and decided to become a Chinese Medicine practitioner.

She is constantly updating and enhancing her knowledge because she believes that this will benefit her patients tremendously.

Renee's background in Chinese culture has helped her in understanding the depths of Chinese Medicine. Along with her knowledge in other modalities, she is able to bring together what is most beneficial to her patients. She feels joy and honor in accompanying her patients in their healing journeys.
