Q&A WITH BENNETT UY
What are you most passionate about professionally? Personally?
Professionally speaking, I’m passionate about Chinese medicine’s knack for offering a different perspective on health issues that can be potentially life changing. Personally, I’m very passionate about experiencing life in a genuine and open minded way. A lot can be packed into one little existence.
What three traits define you?
Inquisitive, caring, and charming amount of oddity.
What would you do even if you didn’t get paid to do it?
Baking and cooking from world cuisines.
What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?
Music keeps my soul moving.
What’s the biggest proof that you’re good at what you do?
It’s super validating when a patient has an issue they never thought could get better actually does. That’s all the proof I need.
How long have you been working in your field?
I started my studies of Chinese medicine in 2012 — it’s been an enlightening journey ever since.
What is the weirdest job you’ve ever had?
I worked as a caregiver in a nursing home. It may not have been all that weird but it was definitely the messiest. That being said, I learned a lot of life lessons working there.
How does your education connect to your professional career? What about personal experiences?
Learning about Daoist philosophy has slowly seeped into every aspect of my life — career included. I’ve learned that life unfolds in many unexpected ways and to just enjoy the ride. “Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.”
What problems do you consistently solve for your clients?
The easiest ones to knock out are those simple nagging pains you get in your body. Always excited to provide quick relief with those types of problems.
