He is a strong believer of “Prevention is BETTER than a Cure” and this stems from his personal experience as a school athlete representing his schools in multiple sports and also recovering from his severe low back pain suffered while serving his National Service. Over the years, he was exposed to scientific evidences of the role of alternative medicine in patients recovery, and has frequently worked together with Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners to manage patients’ pain so that they can do their exercises pain-free.
