Bayside Chinese Medicine
Welcome to Bayside Chinese Medicine
Welcome to my website! I hope that this can help to bring a healthy change into your life.
Bayside Chinese Medicine is at 374 Nepean Highway Frankston which has wheelchair access and onsite parking. It offers you personalized health care with the emphasis on care.
Are you fed up with being tired, stressed, in pain or never felt well since…? Would you prefer to meet your partner at the end of the day with laughter and smiles? Would you like to take control of your health instead of being controlled by a system which has become a giant pharmaceutical merry-go-round?
By using highly tested, quality, TGA approved Chinese herbs, acupuncture, Gua Sha, cupping and diet and exercise therapies Bayside Chinese medicine helps many syndromes such as chronic fatigue, dizziness, infertility, fibromyalgia, stiff neck, sinusitis, sciatica, frozen shoulder, depression and anxiety, digestion problems and headaches.
On February 1st 2018, codeine based medications will require a script from a GP. This is because of the high increase in deaths and opiod addiction due to overdosing with these pain medications. Acupuncture is fast becoming useful in helping to relieve serious pain conditions.
Acupuncture will continue to be covered by health insurance companies as Acupuncturists are registered with the Australian government (AHPRA) and acupuncture is backed up current research now. (See the acupuncture page under therapies on this site for more information).
There is now substantial research on the effectiveness of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. This ancient 3000 + years old medicine can interrelate with your current health regime, teaching you how to become healthier and stay that way. People often turn to complimentary medicine as a last resort, when instead it can also be used as a preventative medicine or at the early stages of symptom manifestation before more serious conditions can develop.
My intention is to help you to heal and understand how to increase and maintain vitality and balance after your initial symptoms are relieved. Unlike other more common forms of medicine, Chinese medicine strengthens the mind, body and spirit without harming the person. It is a complete form of healing that works on many levels, from the simplest cold to the most chronic and complicated diseases.
In China, the hospitals incorporate and integrate Western and Chinese medicine for the improved health of the patient. In Philadelphia Children’s hospital in America, they are now offering acupuncture treatments instead of just opioids for pain relief and other conditions. A few hospitals in America are also using acupuncture for pain relief in their emergency wards and during some surgery to reduce the amount of anesthetic. The American military is also incorporating it into their health care; in particular with their veterans.
In Australia, you have this wonderful medicine at your fingertips to use. We are the first country in the world to have totally registered practitioners, which means that the titles of “Acupuncturist”, “TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) practitioner” or “Chinese Herbalist” are protected by law. Many years of study and over 1500 supervised clinical practice hours are needed before a student can graduate and start working. These studies incorporate Western science subjects along with the Chinese subjects and often include Tai Qi or Qi Gong, as the practitioner is expected to come from a place of good health and harmony in order to help their patients effectively.
