Zizi received her first acupuncture treatment while earning her undergraduate degree in psychology and early childhood education. She found the treatments to be extremely effective and also deeply relaxing. After several years of seeking acupuncture treatments for herself, she decided to pursue a course of study in Traditional Chinese Medicine, a four year post graduate program. Through her studies at TCMCH, she was inspired by Dr. Angela Longo, founder of the Traditional Chinese Medical College of Hawaii (TCMCH) and Dr. Lam Kong, a tenth generation practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Zizi enjoys helping patients regain balance and wellness in their life. She has additional training and experience working with women’s health, infertility and pre-conception
care. Her post graduate degree work with Didactic NADA Training for Acupuncturists, allows her to be a great resource for addiction management and anxiety
. Zizi also completed post graduate studies with Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center Integrative Medicine
‘s, Acupuncture for the Cancer Patient.
In her free time she enjoys being with her beloved family. She can also be found expressing her creativity in the kitchen, practicing Fragrance Qigong and moving her body in yoga or long walks.
