Physiotherapist introduces martial art-inspired treatments

Chongsu Lee developed the technique based on the Ki-Gong martial art

AN accomplished martial arts expert has launched a new physio treatment inspired by his combat skills.

Chongsu Lee, who runs the Korean Physiotherapy Clinic in Edinburgh, combines martial arts and traditional physiotherapy to treat a variety of physical ailments.

Since the Clinic opened its doors in February this year, Chongsu has been treating around 350 of patients on a regular basis using this Ki-Gong technique.

Included in his client base is Dunfermline Athletic FC where he plays a crucial role in getting the Under 19s youth players fit.

Chongsu Lee said: “I want to be known as the best physiotherapist in Europe and hope that with my compassion and competency I can help many people throughoutScotlandand beyond have a better quality of life.

“I spent 15 years mastering the Ki-Gong martial art discipline in my native South Korea which inspired me to develop a new form of physio treatment after I overcame my own health issues through practising Ki-Gong.

“I fell in love with Edinburgh when I came to study here.  I felt this city was a good base to start my business because it’s renowned for its health care and is a leader in the field of medicine.  If I can prove myself in Edinburgh then I can go any where in the world with confidence.”
