“My very first experience with acupuncture was when I was 5 years old. My mother took me to see a Chinese Medicine Doctor who helped clear a recurrent sty infection in both eyes. He was an elderly man in his 80’s but full of vigor.” – Siatnee Chong


Growing up in a Chinese family in Borneo, my upbringing was steeped in the rich traditions of Chinese Medicine and Native Herbs. Our daily meals, herbal teas, and tonics were not just culinary delights but also tools to boost immunity and prevent disease. This early exposure ignited a deep-seated interest in natural medicine within me.

My first encounter with acupuncture occurred at the tender age of five, a memory that remains vivid in my mind. Suffering from a recurrent sty infection in both eyes, my mother took me to see a Chinese Medicine Doctor, an elderly man full of vigor despite his age. Fleeing to South East Asia to escape political turmoil, he brought with him a wealth of medicinal knowledge from before the Cultural Revolution.

Using ear acupuncture with Vaccaria seeds soaked in herbal medicine and prescribing a herbal formula, he swiftly cleared my infection for good. This experience planted the seed of my love for natural medicine.

Upon migrating to California, I fell in love with the state’s healthy lifestyle and eco-conscious living. Despite a successful career in international sales and marketing, the intense work and travel schedule took a toll on my health. Yoga, meditation, Qi Gong, Tai Ji, and a vegetarian diet became my remedies, leading me to become a yoga teacher and delve deeper into ancient practices to recharge.

This journey reignited my passion for natural medicine, prompting me to study Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and reconnect with the foundational principles I grew up with. The profound understanding of Yin and Yang, Qi and Xue, the 5 Elements, herbs, and meridians enriched my knowledge and practice.

The turning point came when my older sister was diagnosed with Stage 4 Ovarian cancer. Standing by her side, I witnessed the power of combining Eastern and Western medicine. Throughout her treatments, she was supported with herbs, Moxa, massage, and energy work, which extended her quality of life for five precious years. Though she eventually passed away peacefully, I am grateful to have been able to help her fulfill her bucket list and leave a legacy for her young son.

This experience reinforced my belief in the unique capability of our bodies to heal themselves and inspired me to continue blending the best of Eastern and Western medicine to serve others on their healing journeys.



“No matter what kind of ailments you have, having a true healer by your side is equally important as the type of medicine you are taking. One who walks with you on your journey, compassionate in nature and points you in the right direction. It might be one person or a team of healers, all of them count toward your healing goal”.
