Our History

Our first practice was initially established in Pertama Complex, KL,
in 1983. We then expanded over to Damansara Jaya in 1984, soon
followed by another practice at Dayabumi, in 1986. A few other practices were established over the years until 1997 but the management is currently running three of its six practices; Dayabumi, Damansara Jaya and OUG (Aktif Lifestyle).
