Kimberley Looi, 28, Chiropractor

Prevention is better than cure – that’s what this New Zealand College of Chiropractic graduate would say. She’d argue that chiropractic treatment should no longer be considered the last resort; instead, be seen as an immediate solution for any hint of muscle ache or joint injury.

Passionate about charity work and helping the underprivileged, Kimberley Looi is also working on building her client base and getting the resources to start her own mobile chiropractic clinic.

You’ve studied abroad in New Zealand. What’s the biggest difference between the way New Zealanders and Malaysians tackle their health and lifestyle matters?

New Zealanders have a more preventive approach, as opposed to pain-based Malaysians. They have a greater interest in wellness and for the body to reach its optimum health, whereas Malaysians tend to want their pains to go away, fast.

What gets you out of bed in the morning?

The thought of being able to help my patients achieve their health goals without relying on drugs or surgical procedures really motivates me to start my day.

What is your ultimate goal?

My ultimate goal is to eventually start my own chiropractic company and make chiropractic available to everyone, especially the less fortunate.

If you could swap lives with any female, dead or alive, who would it be?

Angelina Jolie. Her humanitarian work is inspirational and in line with what I’d like to do in the future.
