I came for my first visit today and was pleasantly surprised by the immediate sense of welcome upon walking in. My reaction was further validated by Mary Tan's very friendly and caring demeanor. Mary is very knowledgeable, skilled, and passionate about what she does. This includes her resident nutritionist, Jonathan, as well. He conducted the Microcirculation Analysis for me and answered all my questions thoroughly, as well. For non-Mandarin speakers, you're in good hands with Jonathan's translation skills. Both Mary and Jonathan helped me with the ZZT Therapy, which they explained with great detail beforehand and executed with professionalism and patience. It is a very comfortable and non-invasive therapy. I felt relaxed and a wonderful warmth in my body after my session. My shoulders and upper back are not tight and tense like before. Looking forward to experiencing further benefits as I continue with this therapy!read more
