Our expertise in alternative medicine Low Level Laser Therapy LLLT

About

Dr Wei Xing Yan

profileI was a medical practitioner overseas and have obtained a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery, Master Degree in Physiology. Both degrees are recognised by the Australian Medical Council and the National Office of Overseas Skills Recognition (NOOSR). In Australia, I conducted clinical studies in Neurology and gained PhD at University of Sydney. Worked as a Research Fellow in Inflammatory Disease Research Centre in University of New South Wales and Brain and Mind Research Institute in University of Sydney, I have focused on research in inflammatory disorders including inflammatory neuropathies, inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis, cardiovascular disease and asthma as well as low level laser therapeutic mechanisms and its applications. I have over 30 years of experience in practice and research.

I have used my expertise and LLLT knowledge in my practice to treat patients with acute and chronic pain, and have achieved good results (fibromyalgia - 83% reduction in pain among patients and 81% reduction in migraine sufferers) and accumulated invaluable clinical experience. The most rewarding part of my job is to see my patients become free of pain post-treatment.

I am deeply passionate about my patient’s health, and have made it my mission to eradicate discomfort and suffering for my patients, such that they can get back to healthy state, and enjoy a more active life with family and friends again.
