Tiger Boe Centre
7 Clarendon Street
Chu Kat Martindale BSc: Co - Owner of Tiger Boe Centre.
Tiger Boe Centre is an independent community multi-bed clinic aimed at treating as many people as possible in a traditional Eastern community setting. In our clinic we will use either couches or chairs, in a large, quiet, soothing space. Treating patients in a community setting has many benefits: it's easy for friends and family members to come in for treatment together: many patients find it comforting; and a collective energetic field becomes established which actually makes the treatments more powerful. It also means that we can provide treatments at a greatly reduced rate. We want to make it possible for patients to receive acupuncture regularly enough and for long enough to get better and to stay better.
