Dr. Richard Zeng was born in Hubei Province, China. His family has four generations of medical practitioners. While grandparents were both in private practice as Traditional Chinese Medicine doctors since the 1930’s, his mother was a GP, practicing acupuncture at the same time. Literally, he grew up around hospitals and clinics.
Growing up in a natural holistic environment, Dr. Zeng has been exposed to natural healing since he was very young. Dr. Zeng had a very close personal relationship with his grandparents. This experience was his inspiration to carry on a family legacy devoted to natural approaches to wellness.

He graduated with degrees of Bachelor of Medicine and Master of Medicine. Dr. Richard Zeng was proudly awarded as an Excellent Graduate by the university.
After graduation, Dr. Zeng worked as a doctor at Wuhan Hospital of Chinese Medicine. He practiced both Western and Chinese medicine at the hospital.
In 2002, Dr. Zeng came to Australia as a skilled immigrant. He worked as a registered acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist.

In 2003, his own practice, Almond Wellness Centre, was established in Melbourne.
