To tell you about myself – my training started in 1994 with Reflexology and moved on to Massage, Anatomy and Physiology. I opened Charmaine’s Massage in the same year.
In 1995 and 1996 I studied the Australian Bush Flower Essences with Ian White, the developer of the essences. I also studied Sports and Acupressure Massage part-time at Hepburn’s College of Natural Medicine.
In 1997 and 1998 I furthered my studies in Anatomy and Physiology, and commenced my studies in Chinese Acupuncture Medicine. At the end of 1999 I become a qualified Acupuncturist after completion of my Diploma of Health Science (Acupuncture).
In 2000 I relocated and opened Banksia Healing Centre. Following further study throughout 2001, I received a Bachelor of Health Science in Acupuncture through the Victoria University on 1st April 2002. I continue to undertake ongoing professional development to ensure my clients benefit from the latest treatments and research.
Lexene Levinson is our nutritionist, and has a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional Medicine) from the former Australian College of Natural Medicine (now the Endeavour College of Natural Health).
Her journey and passion for nutrition came about from her own health challenges…she knows first-hand what it is like to have a body not working to its fullest potential. With the help of a natural health practitioner, Lexene returned to optimum health and wellness by improving her nutrition and lifestyle (food, diet, nutrients and stress/relaxation techniques). It was this experience that ignited her passion to improve other’s lives through the right nutrition.
