In Australia, Kooi consolidated her clinical training thoroughly in a wide array of settings ranging from intensive care unit and fracture clinics in hospitals to schools, and community.
She returned to her native soil Malaysia where she set up and run a physiotherapy department in a 160 bed private hospital treating the infants to the elderly in hospital wards and outpatients.
Kooi then joined a military hospital in Saudi Arabia during the Desert Storm where she treated many war victims such as injured soldiers and civilians.

My name is Sheli Sacker, I am a chartered physiotherapist and qualified from the Manchester Metropolitan University with a BSc (Hons) in 2007.
I worked in the NHS for over 5 years in the Royal Free Hospital in London, completing rotations in musculoskeletal, orthopaedic and trauma, respiratory and intensive care, neurology and health care for the elderly, before developing a passion for paediatrics and specialising in the brand new Manchester Children's Hospital in intensive care and children's outpatient departments.
I became a senior in paediatric Neurosurgery in King's College Hospital, before returning back to the Royal Free to work in the Private Patients sector and continue my skills in musculoskeletal disorders, sports injuries and rehabilitation.
I have completed a foundation Masters level course in medical acupuncture and integrated it in treatment with great success.
I was the physiotherapist in charged and a member of the medical team for the 2009 Maccabiah games for the youth Great British team.
I believe in a holistic approach to rehabilitation and healing which makes physiotherapy appropriate in all areas of medicine.
Whilst spending a great deal of my early life volunteering for charities specialising in healthcare abroad such as in India and Uganda, I witnessed the unique power of physiotherapy. By empowering people and improving lives under the most deprived conditions, it was a very inspiring experience. I became passionate to become a skilled physiotherapist, aiming at getting the most out of every patient. In 2013 I fulfilled my dream after graduating at Coventry University with a first class honours degree as a Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy.
Over the last 5 years I have worked in a variety of settings within the NHS and the private sector. I enjoyed working in care of the elderly and falls clinics, post-surgical rehabilitation and orthopaedics, sports injuries, acute spinal conditions, stroke rehabilitation and neurology, respiratory and chronic pain. I developed a special interest for musculoskeletal physiotherapy in which I now specialise. I love the variety in working with acute and chronic injuries across all age groups. It allows me to successfully treat patients with short term injuries as well as contributing to rehabilitate more long term conditions such as stroke patients.
My approach is holistic and motivational – I treat patients using a variety of therapeutic skills, acupuncture and home exercise programmes. My special interests lie within the musculoskeletal field – spearheading in early intervention of adolescence scoliosis, and postural rehabilitation.
