In 1996, Dr. Phoebe graduated from Guangdong Medical College in Chinese and Western pharmaceutical preparations. Dr. Phoebe continued to
further her professional education in the areas of business administration and nursing. She gained first hand clinical experience at the Chikan District Hospital in Zhanjiang City;
Guangdong Province and the China Western Pharmaceutical, Acupuncture and Physiotherapy clinic.
Inspired at an early age by her Mother; an acupuncturist, Dr. Phoebe was determined to follow in her Mother’s footsteps. Her
enthusiasm to learn the art of acupuncture coupled with her passion to work with patients led her to undertaking further education in the field of acupuncture and moxibustion at the District Hospital
in Beijing in 2007. The course was led by the leading clinical practitioner; Professor Jin Bohua.
After completing her studies, Dr. Phoebe settled in Hong Kong where she worked as a Chinese medicine health consultant for two large chains of medical and
beauty clinics. Her experience and professional connections took Dr. Phoebe overseas and she immigrated to the UK. In 2012, Dr. Phoebe worked as a Chinese medicine practitioner for the
nationwide chain of medical clinics; Dr & Herbs.
Dr. Phoebe left Dr & Herbs to fulfil one of her career ambitions and set up her own acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine clinic in Manchester in
2013. AcuSpa opened its doors in December 2013. Dr. Phoebe has built up the clinic’s client base from word of mouth recommendation through her patient centred
approach. Establishing a diverse patient base, Dr. Phoebe came to realise from daily patient interaction that accessibility to
Traditional Chinese Medicine treatments and Chinese remedies was somewhat limited in the UK.
In March 2016, Dr. Phoebe pioneered and established the Professional Alliance of Chinese Acupuncturists UK; a UK based organisation providing a platform for
advanced Western and Traditional Chinese Medicine exchanges to promote a universal health programme that provides sustainable health choices in patient care. Dr. Phoebe currently serves as the
