IMI welcomes Chiropractic Kinesiologist Dr Brian H. Leung, (D.C.)(N.D.) to the team of practitioners. Dr Leung is one of the few doctors in the world to hold dual-doctorates in the field of natural medicine and the only certified Applied Kinesiologist in Hong Kong. He brings his knowledge and experience to IMI this month.
Chiropractic Kinesiology is an integration of different techniques based on applied kinesiology as developed by Dr. George Goodheart Jr. The principle is to balance the body's different facets to heal from a state of stress, which causes "dis-ease". The dysfunctions in our bodies are resolved through a myriad of options including spinal/extra-spinal adjustments, cranial manipulation, Temporomandibular Joint (jaw) rebalancing, acupressure, pelvic blocking, emotional release, counseling, and specific nutritional recommendations, then the body becomes de-stressed, allowing the innate healing mechanism to overcome the "dis-ease" states.
"Your body can function at its best when free of internal and external stressors," said Dr Leung. "Emotional stress, dietary stress, chemical toxins, physical pain, and the decline of our environment all affect how we function in today's world."
When working with patients, Dr Leung utilizes his training of science with a mix of intuition in order to help resolve the body's imbalances. He often addresses the lymphatic, vascular, acupuncture meridians, cranial, biochemical, muscular, endocrine, and nervous systems. He also looks at environmental factors pertinent to the patient.
Dr Leung has seen patients suffering from chronic diseases, cancer, mental illnesses, degenerative conditions, arthritis, muscle tensions/sprain/strain, chronic postural pain, female disorders, allergies and skin conditions.
Before joining IMI, Dr Leung managed a successful decompression practice and functional medicine clinic in California. He was also the past president and clinical director of Careseng Naturopathic Medical Centre in Canada, where he utilized various intravenous therapies to treat patients with cancers and chronic diseases.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Dr Leung graduated in Kinesiology from the University of Southern California. He received his naturopathic doctorate from the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut, and then completed his doctorate in chiropractic from the Southern California University of Health Sciences. He is currently licensed under the Hong Kong Chiropractic Council.
Dr Leung speaks fluent English, Cantonese and Mandarin.
