His research and volunteering activities focused on children with developmental delays. After graduation, he worked for a few years in the social service sector and then pursued clinical studies in Occupational Therapy in Australia. He is certified in the use of Pediatrics Neurodevelopmental Therapy (NDT). In addition, he has attended numerous trainings and workshops in Sensory Integration, using the Floortime approach, yoga as therapy and craniosacral therapy (CST).

Clinically he is also keen in exploring the use of movement, breathing techniques and Craniosacral Therapy as a basis for personal development and well being. Outside of work, Wai Ming enjoys being out in nature and travelling off the beaten track.
