Jan studied Chinese medicine at the University of Technology in Sydney. After graduating in 2000 with a degree in acupuncture, Jan then undertook further studies in Germany, completing the German Heilpraktiker license in 2002.
With over 13 years of clinical experience Jan has extensive knowledge of the treatment of a large range of health disorders. Health and the causes of illness have fascinated Jan from his early youth. He has been investigating the connections of body and mind and illness for many years. Further studies of the fine techniques of Japanese acupuncture have given him additional skills and tools to efficiently treat many health conditions.
Jan has been training in the internal martial arts systems of Qi Gong, Xing Yi and Ba Gua for the past nine years. He understands the practice of this internal work to be fundamental to his practice of acupuncture. Only in the deep internal space can a practitioner clearly observe the pulses and hear and feel what is at the heart of a patient’s being. If desired Jan can teach specific health exercises for patients to practice at home.
Jan is a registered acupuncturist under the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), and a member of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA).

Acupuncturist and Massage Therapist
Damien is both an acupuncturist and massage therapist. He grew up in Melbourne and previously worked as an electrician for over 20 years. Wanting to have a more fulfilling life he qualified in Traditional Chinese Tuina massage in 2005 at the Australian College of Natural Medicine. He is also qualified in cupping, deep tissue massage and relaxation massage and can tailor these to individual needs.
Wishing to further his knowledge in Chinese medicine he completed a BHSc (acupuncture) at Endeavour College of Natural Medicine. He is now working in the industry enjoying watching others grow and fulfill their own potential.
This life change directed him to Qi Gong and the practice of internal martial arts. Qi Gong developed to help calm the mind, heart and body. It has been used for over 2000 years to maintain a healthy mind and body. Practicing Qi Gong has, in turn, led Damien to many new opportunities, adventures and life-changing decisions.
Previously a keen sportsman, Damien is keen to work with sportsmen and women to assist them, not only on their road to recovery, but also in injury prevention. Acupuncture encourages the body to function more efficiently, thereby reducing recuperation time, be that from training, competing or injury.
Aside from musculo-skeletal injuries and pain management, Damien is also able to help anyone suffering with headaches/migraines, sleep disorders, stress, back pain, allergies, fertility and gynaecological or digestive issues. Used as a general health maintenance practice, acupuncture is also very useful in helping maintain optimum health.
Damien takes a thorough and caring approach to his clients. He is committed to providing each individual with professional and informed treatment.
