Her biggest focus has been on women's issues and reproductive health, especially for fertility. Her approach to enhance fertility is integrated from many courses she took in the past (including courses by the world famous and leading practitioners in this TCM fertility field; please see below) and evidence-based TCM (medical acupuncture). She has helped a lot of couples who had difficulties to have a child with both natural conception and ART support.
