MB ChB, MRCGP, DRCOG, FHKAM (Fam Med) (Member of the Australian College of Nutritional & Environmental Medicine – ACNEM)
Scotland and Harvard-trained, Dr Jamieson is Hong Kong’s most experienced ex-pat family doctor, with 26 years experience in Hong Kong and a wealth of knowledge in the areas commonly affecting busy expat lives, especially in the area of stress.
Dr Jamieson is also a specialist in integrative health, founding Dr Susan Jamieson Integrative Medical Practice to combine the very best of Western and Eastern therapies. Therapies include family medicine, traditional Chinese medicine, psychotherapy, acupuncture, hypnotherapy and much more.
She is trained as an integrative and functional medicine doctor, and as such takes a functional medicine approach to health to fix the root causes of your health issues. This means she’ll take the time to listen, and investigate the details of your family and personal health concerns. A functional medicine doctor is particularly adept at tracing the causes of chronic or difficult-to-diagnose challenges.
Once she understands the physical, social and mental factors that contribute to your current state of health, she’ll give you a physical exam, and might recommend blood, urine or saliva testing. Restoring you to a state of functional health can be like solving a complex puzzle, but Dr Jamieson will work with you in partnership to help you get back to your optimum state of being.
Dr Jamieson is also a doctor to the world’s most famous rock stars, a humanitarian, an artist and an author.
‘Be whole and all things will come to you’
– Lao Tsu
Physician & Academic
Family doctor, inspirational speaker, author, humanitarian worker, with a background of associate professor at the Chinese University, Hong Kong, Reiki master, EMF and EFT practitioner, and CEO of her own medical practice, which she established in the heart of Central, Hong Kong in 1995.
Dr Jamieson has had 26 years experience in Hong Kong and at all times has been a tireless student of a vast range of wellness philosophies, both Oriental and Occidental, Recently she has distilled that experience and knowledge into her new own book:
Medical to Mystical, Bring Light Into Your Life, a self-help book that includes simple, quick exercises, designed to connect the reader to their inner resources and begin their own progress to the light. Dr Jamiesons book is available on-line from Findhorn Press.
Entrepreneurial Innovative Practitioner
Her medical practice, with 16 practitioners has, since the beginning of the new millennium, become the only one in Hong Kong combining Western and complimentary therapies ranging from family practice to kinesiology. Passionate in her search for connection and knowledge, she spent all her free time in further studies (!). Well known for the quote, not often heard in Hong Kong, a city of investment bankers:
‘I believe in investing in myself’
A natural thirst for and endless pursuit of medical knowledge and developments has resulted in Dr Jamieson meeting and working with such renowned experts as Deepak Chopra, Eckhart Tolle and ‘water guru’ Dr Masuru Emoto whose offices she has visited in Japan. Such studies also led her to investigate energy psychology and energy medicine, as well as naturopathy and homeopathy; all of which changed her methods of practice.
Travels into Eastern Philosophies and Famous Lifestyles
Early on, her own life journey became one of bridging Eastern and Western philosophies and medicine as she enhanced her prodigious intellectual knowledge with experiential understanding of many practices ranging from Qi Gong to Oriental meditation, yoga, Indian and Chinese philosophies.
She was lucky enough to be invited to one of the first Chinese conference in natural healing, through the arts, in 2008, near the city of Guilin, below with the local Qi Gong and calligraphy expert.
Into the mix add the fact that she has also been fortunate, as she describes it, to ‘Doctor to busy, high pressured stars such as Mick Jagger, Kylie Minogue, Il Divo, Greenday, Fergie of The Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay, The Eagles and others.’
This, she said, gave her an invaluable understanding of the issues faced by such ‘multi-tasking/busy high fliers trying to keep at the top of their game.’
This understanding has proved particularly applicable for the top CEO’s and high achievers in business driven Hong Kong whom she not only ministers to through her clinic but is called upon to address via her inspirational talk-shows, workshops and other public engagements.
Dr Jamieson has lots of radio hosting experience having hosted Radiolightworker with monthly guests from all walks of life, has been the Hong Kong’s Radio 3 Doctor, and has made a number of guest medical appearances on regional TV and CNN. She also undertakes many inspirational speaking engagements, and runs workshops in six star wellness resorts, in the business sector, and most recently broadcast her message on TEDx.
Widely published in magazines, from the US Wellbeing (Sept – Oct issue) to main feature of Lightworker in November.
Charity and Service
Dr Jamieson began her Asian experience in 1989 when she responded to a call for doctors to work with TB victims among the influx of boat people, or Vietnamese refugees, to Hong Kong, which was then still a British colony.
As her career progressed she expanded her service and charity work and has received many awards of commendation.
Dr Susan Jamieson has been personally invited by the governments of Asian countries to assist in the face of humanitarian disasters, especially in the first week when medical support is critical.

In 2004 she responded immediately when the Asian tsunami struck, flying the first week of January having sourced and personally financed $30,000 worth of vaccines. She then flew from Europe to Sri Lanka to administer these vaccines protecting against water borne illness such as typhoid. Generous patients paid for all the vaccines.

Dr Jamieson has always championed work to assist victims of domestic abuse, for which she received an award from ‘Harmony House’, a Hong Kong charity in 2000. This was for providing free medical advice and treatments where needed to the residents and their children.
Mystical Beginnings and a Renaissance Woman
The connections, bring together of strands from far corners, began as an only child. Susan Jamieson grew up something of a mystic, connecting to both the forces of nature and animals. Her earliest memory was lying on her back in her pram, looking up at the trees above. She remembers merging with the trees and sky above, dissolving into nature as everything softened in a haze. These experiences were repeated and often show up in later poetry. From an early age she was drawn to horses and by age 16 was short-listed for the British Junior Three Day Event team, on her 16 hand thoroughbred horse, Simonsway. This story was fodder for her chapter in the book, Hot Chocolate for the Mystical Teenage Soul’ published by Arielle Ford in 2000.
Today she loves dogs, which she sees as small horses! And she demonstrates her self-titled ‘Renaissance woman’ style through art, poetry, sculpture and teaching ecstatic dance, all invigorated through ‘creativity and the power of the heart.’
With such a passion for so much and steely dedication to her first calling of keeping man healthy, Dr Jamieson is surely: A woman for all seasons, and brings an age-old message to remind us of this need to engage with our light beings, and stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before:
“Thousands of years ago, indigenous societies worldwide recognized our innate connection to each other, the Earth, Sun and forces of nature outside our control.
They embraced this concept and respected their environment and the planet, fully realizing their dependence on it for sustenance and survival.
“Dr Susan Jamieson is a highly effective and incredibly kind doctor. She has made such a difference to my life.”
– C. Mcletchie
“I commend you on all that you have achieved in your practice in Hong Kong. You are an inspirational leader in the path towards integrating the left and right brain’s manner of thinking in regards to medical treatment and healing.”
– C. Preston
“What an inspiration you are! A beautifully heart-centered, yet strong, intelligent, wise healer and divine “bridge,” making a big difference everywhere you go. Bravo!”
– Sage Taylor Kingsley
“Dr. Jamieson is a genius. After relocating to Hong Kong I hit a wall. I was completely overwhelmed and could not find the energy or motivation to do all that is required to get a business up and running and settle in. I became very depressed, had no energy and found it nearly impossible to leave my home. Dr. Jamieson ran tests and found physical causes and imbalances which were contributing to and or causing my uncharacteristic state of health. After only a fortnight, and with great encouragement from her, the clouds have lifted. I am feeling myself again and ready to strike out and take the world by storm. I am so grateful to have found a wonderful, caring practitioner. Dr. Jamieson brings a gift to the medical profession by embracing her patients as a whole and treating the body and mind.”
– C. Barrister
“I have been a client at Dr. Susan Jamieson’s Holistic Medical Practice for many years. I’ve been very pleased with Dr. Jamieson’s treatments for (peri-) menopause and especially liked her bedside manner. She’s very reassuring and truly concerned, not rushed like most other doctors in Central.”
– A. Tang
“Dear Dr Jamieson, I wanted you to know that you are head and shoulders above all other doctors that I have known in Hong Kong. While others here generally spend little to no time talking to their patients to really understand their situation and thus be in a position to make an accurate, holistic diagnosis, you always ask me how I am generally every time I come in with an illness. You explain my ailment to me in terms I understand. Even more so, I really appreciate your offering me ideas on natural therapies, and how to stay healthy and happy. I would vote you the best family doctor in Hong Kong. And thank you for taking care of me and my family members.”
– A. Lam
“I would like to say that I have been seeing Susan for about 4 years now (maybe more) and she has helped me through many health issues and concerns. I highly recommend her and her clinic.“
– F. Fownes
