Throughout his career, Danny has maintained a progressive portfolio of continuing education and undertaken various professional courses on both Chinese and Western medicines. Three years ago, he successfully invented a set of revolutionary massotherapy – COMT Technique, which has been proven effective and widely recognized by over 100 physiotherapists in their pain treatment practice.
