Dr Gwei Theen, Lee
Dr Gwei is our paediatric chiropractor, with a strong holistic and wellness focus on caring for children, mums, mums-to-be and women’s health.
Dr Gwei graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Chiropractic) from the prestigious International Medical University in Malaysia as the pioneering batch of Chiropractic graduates in South East Asia. She started her journey in Chiropractic working in one of the award-winning Chiropractic centre in Singapore as an associate before returning to her alma mater, contributing back to the Malaysian community in a multidisciplinary setting. Over the years, her practice consisted of patients from babies, children, expectant mothers, families to national team junior gymnasts and coaches.
Her genuine passion in wellness care for babies, children, and pre/postnatal patients grew immensely ever since her time working in Singapore. She then decided to devote herself to this line of career in treating children to raise healthier adults. Dr Gwei is a firm believer of continuing education and one can never stop learning in the journey in healthcare. She constantly keeps herself up-to-date by attending seminars to continually train in paediatric and pregnancy care.
She is thoroughly committed to providing the best care to her little patients and she is giving her all by furthering her studies in Paediatrics course to better develop her expertise in this field because she believes that her patients deserve nothing but the best possible start, growing and developing properly to reach their milestones in life.
To pursue her dream and for the love of nature, Dr Gwei passed her professional board exam by the Council of Chiropractic Education Australasia (CCEA) and made her decision to move to New Zealand after a considerable amount of thought. She is currently training/working alongside Dr Bill Donaldson, a TBM Instructor, where she continues to learn the holistic approach of Total Body Modification (TBM), offering a more extensive range of care to her patients to achieve an optimal quality of life.
Born and raised in one of Asia’s best street food destinations: Penang, Malaysia, Dr Gwei has a palatal love for all things spicy and savoury. Most of the time, she either has her head buried in books, preoccupied with sitcoms and stand-up comedies, strolling the beach, exploring nature or going on a hike.
With an interest in science since young, she is often amazed by the science behind the brain/body connections and how chiropractic adjustment relates to expressing human potential. Dr Gwei looks forward to caring for young children, helping them to grow into healthy, vibrant individuals as well as supporting mums towards a healthy and enjoyable pregnancy.
