Hong is a passionate Acupuncturist and Chinese Medicine Practitioner who has completed his degree from the University of Technology, Sydney. He is highly motivated and inspired to see people get well. It stems from a deep love of learning, growing and helping people with his knowledge and sense of humour. His jokes are so bad that you might actually find them funny!
Volunteering for the Acupuncture Relief Project in Nepal in 2017 was one of the most intense and humbling experiences of his life. During that time, Hong had the opportunity to meet many wonderful, genuinely loving and amazing people who are in need of critical care. He assisted people with conditions including stroke symptoms, Bell’s Palsy (facial paralysis) symptoms, severe musculoskeletal pain, hypertension and many chronic digestive complaints.
Hong also has a keen interest in cancer treatment and was involved with the Acupuncture Cancer Research program developed between the University of Technology, Sydney and Concord Hospital in 2016. He supported cancer patients before and during cancer treatment such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy, as well as, patients who have completed their cancer treatment. He has found acupuncture to be a highly effective modality in managing many cancer pain symptoms and treatment side effects.
Prior to becoming an Acupuncturist, Hong spent 13 years working as a counsellor and has a degree in Psychology (UNSW). He is passionate about supporting people through their mental and emotional difficulties. He has also incorporated many Chinese Medicine principles to effectively support stress, anxiety, depressed mood, insomnia and other related symptoms.
He specialises in the use of Balance Method Acupuncture, Electro-Acupuncture, Cupping Therapy, Auricular (Ear) Seed Therapy and Herbal Medicine.
Hong grew up aspiring to be a professional tennis player but at age 14 realised it was too competitive for his calm, easy going nature. Now he enjoys playing soccer socially in the local competition. Be warned that Hong plays the guitar and loves to sing but he doesn’t guarantee the quality!
