Master Lee’s in San Pedro
Master Lee grew up with his Buddhist uncle who practiced herbal medicine and massage. Lee’s uncle began to teach him these techniques from the moment he arrived at his house. Master Lee would attend school and in the afternoons would be mentored by his uncle.
At the age of 14, Lee began his military training at the China Army, where he also got the opportunity to attend school and he decided to continue learning as much as he could about herbal medicine and massage. He pursued this career as far as it took him and, while still at the army, he received his medicinal and surgical degree. This was no easy feat and he spent 18 years in schooling, the first eight at a school in China while the last 10 were passed at a school in Hong Kong. Lee explains, “In China, they teach you everything. You have to learn all the body parts and how to fix everything. You become a general practitioner but are also branched out in different areas.”
Master Lee continues to offer his treatments which include massages to cure historical pain, arthritis, sprains, broken bones, sleepless nights and memory loss. His great work supersedes him and he is well known for specializing in foot massages for, pregnant women, weight loss, lowering blood pressure, headaches and back pain. His shop is currently located on the corner of Barrier Reef Drive and Buccaneer Street.
