Soo has started treating patients back in 2009 at UTS clinic as a fourth-year internship practitioner. She is proud that she has visited the UTS clinic to treat patients even after completing her treatments requirement until the clinic was actually closed due to the semester schedule. It was because her patients wanted her to keep treating them and she felt empathy for them and was more than happy to help them. Through the internship, Soo developed not just superb clinic skills, but compassion and admiration for the power of the human spirit. Moreover, it helped her to encourage her positive attitude towards patients even more when she became a professional practitioner. Hence most of her patients feel comfortable when they get treatments and she has witnessed its positive effectiveness on increasing curative value.
Soo continually learns and expands her skills. She regularly attends acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine seminars to study both classical and newer forms of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. As she learns more about Asian Medicine, She discovered the beauty of Oriental Medicine and the wholistic approach to heal.
Soo believes that if the patients to face their challenges from life or diseases with optimism and courage, the patients are already half cured. She wants to be the support to reawaken the spirit and strengthen the body in their everyday life. Soo thinks that healing is a vocation, not something to be undertaken without a genuine concern for the welfare of the general public and the most important quality of a health care professional is to put profound value on sympathy and care for their patients.
