About Coach

I was born in Malaysia and moved to Australia when I was 6. I found it really hard to fit in culturally, felt like i was always a follower and could never keep up with the 'cool kids'. It was only in my 20s that I started building the confidence to be myself, to be a bit weird and realise that was OK. That has led me to my current path which is a dedication to lifelong health and wellness, personal growth and self mastery.

Turning Point

Most significant event was motorbike accident 2011. 6 fractured vertebrae, 2 spinal surgeries, out of work 1 year - then getting a desk job, being stiff and uncomfortable all day, expected to survive on painkillers and antidepressants... i was in a pretty dark place. This led me to searching for new options and beginning my career path into massage, health and wellness.<br /> <br /> Regular massage, exercise and stretching helped me to become pain free after my motorbike accident. Since then I've been working with the model that the more I learn, the more i can help myself, and in turn help others.

Motivation & Passion

After my injury, with chronic pain and limited functionality - i spent a lot of time not knowing if I'd ever be able to feel good or pain-free again. I had no idea who to turn to or how to help myself. I was referred to physiotherapists who got me back on my feet again, but it was not enough to kickstart the process of taking responsibility for my health and wellness.<br /> <br /> My purpose is in helping people who deal with any level of pain, discomfort, or limited functionality - to help people to take charge of their health and wellness to work towards having a body which is pain-free, feels good and is highly functional.
