Chinese medicine practitioner inflicts 2.5cm pneumothorax during woman’s treatment for back pain

When the woman cried out, she was told the pain was because her 'her body was tense'.

A Chinese medicine practitioner who punctured a woman’s lung with an acupuncture needle was not registered to practise, a tribunal has heard. 

Gyu Hyuk Han had been left in charge of a Sydney Chinese medicine clinic when the 32-year-old patient presented with back pain.
