About Bayside Chinese Medicine
Trained by Professor Lun Wong (awarded an Order of Australia for his services to Chinese medicine) as a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner, Natasha Bakker utilizes Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Tuina Massage (including cupping), Diet and Exercise therapies. Chinese medicine utilizes a mind body and spirit approach to healing, the understanding of how we are affected by our lifestyle choices, infection and weather and how our recovery is influenced by our emotional and mental states as well as the physical condition and diet. A treatment plan can be developed that focuses on the underlying causes of health problems, rather than just the symptoms, helping to maintain the body’s inner balance and working on each patient’s individual pattern. Completing an Advanced Diploma in Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2005, and starting her practice in January 2006, Natasha has also helped to edit a textbook which is available on Amazon.com and is being used as the definitive text in teaching Chinese Pediatrics in China as well as being available around the world in English. “Pediatrics in Chinese Medicine” (Book and Dvd) by Wang Shou-chuan, Julie Mulin Qiao-Wong, Zhao Xia and Natasha Bakker (May 1, 2012) et al.
