Welcome to Bayside Chinese Medicine

COVID-19 UPDATE

We are classed as primary health practitioners. This helps reduce the pressure on GP’s and the hospital system. There are also many people that have had surgery delayed and are in pain or experiencing extreme anxiety and distress at this time. We are here for you and use full infection control guidelines to ensure your safety.

We will not be able to see any patients who have recently returned from overseas or those with respiratory or fever symptoms due to the risk of contamination unless you have been tested clear of Covid-19. Patient appointments are spaced out to avoid contact while waiting. All visitors and patients to the clinic are questioned and checked prior to entry and are requested to wash their hands prior to treatment. Masking is necessary unless you have a medical exemption as per the DHHS site or are lying face down, showing your tongue, or receiving face treatment.

All used surfaces are cleaned between patients, including payment equipment, benches chairs, door handles etc. Disposable sheets and towels are changed with each patient and exposed surfaces sanitized.

If you are curious about how we can help you please email or leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Mobile contact during working hours only is 0418 327 892.

Welcome to my website! I hope that this may enable a healthy change in your life.

We use acupuncture, high quality TGA approved herbs, Gua Sha, cupping, Tuina massage, Moxibustion, diet regimes and exercise therapies, to help you. Your treatment process is explained to you to help you understand the mechanisms of disease from a Chinese Medicine viewpoint, in order to remove any possible misunderstanding and help you gain knowledge of your health.

There is a growing body of evidence regarding acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. This ancient 3000 + years old medicine may be included with your current health regime, teaching you ways that people have preserved their health over thousands of years. People often turn to complementary medicine as a last resort, however its underlying philosophy also promotes prevention.

Chinese medicine assesses and helps to harmonize the mind, body and spirit, helping the person to re-balance and heal. It is a complete system of complementary therapies that addresses many levels from, in words traditionally used in Chinese medicine diagnosis, “the superficial” to “deep”.

From February 1st, 2018, codeine-based medications have required a script from a GP. This is because of the high increase in deaths and opioid addictions caused by overdosing with these pain medications (Roxburgh et al., 2017; Shipton, Shipton, Williman & Shipton, 2017).  In view of this it is worth noting that acupuncture is fast becoming useful for serious pain conditions (Lee et al., 2013; Ming-Shun et al., 2015).

In Australia, you have this wonderful medicine at your fingertips to use. The titles of “Acupuncturist”, “TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) practitioner” or “Chinese Herbalist” are protected by National law. Many years of study and over 1500 supervised clinical practice hours are needed before a student can graduate become registered 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 so that they may help their patients efficiently. Continuing professional education ensures the practitioner is aware of possible drug interactions and current changes to the law.
