Cheng has been involved heavily in higher education of traditional style acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine as a lecturer, clinical supervisor, and module leader, while taking on external educational roles as examiner and acupuncture accreditation committee member from which she enjoyed gaining experience in quality control.

Clinical practice is at the core of her professional development. She was involved in the Holistic Cancer Care Centre at the James Cook University Hospital for more than seven years. In the meantime has been continuously practicing privately to have wider contact of treating general health conditions and patient support.


Complexity and focus are the two aspects of a spectrum to balance in Chinese medicine practice. While one single situation stands out as a major clinical concern, an individual’s life circumstance and experience are the unique background of integration of well being. Cheng takes on the complexity of human experience on board yet with clarity of focus to target a patient’s major concern with the vision of prevention is the best fulfilling approach.

This approach involves the patient’s two way interaction in the process of treatment and progression, encouraging patients to discover their own insight in dealing with illness and general well being.

Apart from the common use of acupuncture for pain relief, Cheng’s major clinical interests are: cardiovascular condition support, C.O.P.D support, Digestive disorders, Interstitial cystitis, Menopausal symptoms, eczema, and many other chronic health conditions.
