I’ve been in clinical practice since 1990, after completing my original Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine degree with a residency at the Red Cross Hospital in Hangzhou, China. I followed this up with an Advanced Diploma in Clinical Acupuncture through the University of Technology, Sydney. Nearly 30 years of clinical practice means I’ve seen most things and will have some strategies to help manage whatever is bothering you.

 

As an acupuncturist, I deal primarily with musculo-skeletal complaints like neck and shoulder pain, back pain, tennis elbow, all kinds of pain and stiffness anywhere in the body. Acupuncture is very effective for all these complaints. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are also terrific at dealing with functional disorders, such as headache, menstrual pain, infertility, digestive disturbances, depression, insomnia, low energy, in short all the functional disorders we are prone to.

 

I have a special interest in Chinese medicine ophthalmology, particularly macular degeneration; and also in infertility. I recently published my experiences treating both tears and macular degeneration in an internationally distributed Chinese medicine journal  (“The Lantern” January 2018 issue). One of the joys of Chinese medicine gynaecology is meeting the babies of previously infertile couples.

 

People are often afraid that acupuncture will hurt. I use very fine needles of the best quality, and insert them vary carefully. Because the needles have rounded tips rather than cutting edges, they normally slide in almost imperceptibly. All needles are single-use. I also use a far-infrared lamp, which gently warms the tissues; and follow this up with massage using an anti-inflammatory crame. People usually end up with a pleasant feeling of relaxation, as one of the nice side effects of acupuncture is the release of endorphins.
