What differentiates you from other Melbourne Chinese Medicine practitioners?
I am an experienced Doctor of Oriental Medicine, working primarily with Nagano lineage Acupuncture and Tian Family lineage Chinese Herbal Medicine. To develop these skills I have undertaken extensive post-graduate training.
Along with my background in Shiatsu, this has provided me with the knowledge and skills to treat patients with this unique blend of clinical styles.
This particular fusion of traditional therapies responds directly to your body’s signs. This helps determine the best acupuncture or herbal treatment plan for your individual treatments.
Why should I come to Dantian Health?
At Dantian Health’s Melbourne acupuncture clinic, I provide a range of wellbeing services from the Chinese Medicine toolkit.
To understand what is happening for you, as your practitioner I take the time during a consultation to listen to you and your body.
Your individualised wellbeing plan will guide you towards reclaiming your health and restoring your vitality. This natural health program is focused on helping you achieve your health goals and prevent illness.
How can I tell if Dantian Health is the right Chinese Medicine clinic for me?
What training do Chinese Medicine doctors undergo?
Study begins with a 4-5 year Bachelors degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture.
Practitioners are then qualified to work professionally in Melbourne’s many Chinese medicine clinics.
Ongoing yearly professional development ensures refinement of knowledge and skills.
What registrations do Chinese Medicine practitioners hold?
In Australia, all practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine are eligible to register with the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia, assuming they meet minimum university-level education requirements. This is to ensure that those with the appropriate experience and knowledge to use Chinese Medicine in treating patients can be identified and are upheld to quality standards.
They are also able to join professional membership organisations like the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association.
Where can I find your Melbourne Chinese Medicine clinic?
I provide responsive, holistic health care using Chinese Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture in Brunswick, VIC, just a short journey north of the Melbourne CBD area.
As a local acupuncturist and Chinese Herbal Medicine practitioner for the Moreland community, I welcome people from Melbourne’s northern suburbs including Brunswick, Carlton, Thornbury, Northcote, Coburg and Fitzroy as well as more distant areas of Melbourne.

Chinese Medicine Health Care Modalities
Acupuncture is a little weird right? Someone sticks a bunch of needles in you during a consultation and that makes you feel better. How is that even possible?
Chinese herbs are just sticks, leaves and a bit of dirt thrown into water right? Kinda like a toddler makes in the mud! How is that healthy?
Moxibustion is TCM witchcraft right? Burning some mystical herb is supposed to help heal the body? Waving a moxibustion stick over the skin is supposed to provide relief? OK then!
Cupping sounds like a medieval treatment right? There will be fire, cups, dark marks that look like the aftermath of an octopus attack. This will provide relief of pain and increase function? Hmmmmm.
Gua Sha? Spooning? Scraping? Is it a hippy love thing or sadistic torture? This helps with pain and is used for common colds? No strapless backed top? What?!
Massage therapy is where they push your muscles around a little to help you relax right? Some scented oils and relaxing music, but what else is therapeutic massage going to do to help?
