“Since I was a little child I wanted to follow my family’s ancient tradition of Chinese Medical practice and become a successful doctor. My education in Chinese herbal medicine had started at a very early age when I was just a 5 or 6 year-old girl. I rushed from school to the local hospital where I learned about Chinese herbs. I have learned acupuncture, Chinese Medicine and Tui Na (massage therapy) from some of the most senior and distinguished medical professors in China.”Dr. Susan Gong

UK Work Experience
Dr Gong started working in London in 2005.
“I treat a wide variety of conditions and what I have noticed while working in the West is that people tend to stick to just very few types of food. I show my patients how to balance their diet and eat widely. I show them how they can feel more positive, stronger and look after themselves better. I also explain to them the importance of cooperation between the patient and the doctor. Both the patient and the doctor have to work together. I treat all my patients with unconditional love and passion.”
