Welcome to my site!

I have been caring for people  for over 37 years with traditional acupuncture and Chinese medicine, and longer still, with manual treatment. I combine the styles of Chinese traditional schools of acupuncture and the gentle Japanese Meridian Therapy approach  to find what suits your individual needs. I often support my acupuncture treatments with tuina - Chinese massage therapy - which I also vary to suit what you respond to. I also prescribe Chinese herbal medicines. I practise at Southpoint Health, Miranda and at CBD Health Sydney, near Wynyard. 
I base my practice on long training and nearly 4 decades of experience:

1977-80: 4years of private traditional training in a small class under a traditional master of acupuncture, tuina and Chinese martial art;

 Then between 1981 and 1985: Another 4 years of formal college training

- the then new 4 year, full time diploma course at the NSW College of Natural Therapies and Traditional Chinese Medicine - the first course in Chinese medicine of such length and depth in Australia, teaching herbal medicine as well as aducupuncture in depth. This was the currinculum that formed the basis of the Batchelor degrees later developed at the then University of Western Sydney and Sydney Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine, when it became possible for Chinese medicine to move into the universtiy system.

In 1984, 3 months in China, practising under supervision in a Chinese outpatient clinic in the lovely city of Hangzhou. This was part of the NSW College course.

In 1992 I spent a further 3 months in China, studying both acupuncture and herbal medicine further. I have continued professional development ever since with seminar-based training, including Meridian Therapy under famed Japanese master, Masakazu Ikeda.  Four decades of clinical experience, including cross-referring and co-treating with osteopaths have further deepened by skills. More recently, I have incorporated some techniques from the "Engaging Vitality" approach to acupuncture developed by American giant of Chinese medicine and osteopathy, Dan Bensky.

I have also taught at a Master Degree level at the University of Western Sydney.

Special Interests:

For almost 4 decades, I've pursued a special interest in muscle and joint injuries and disorders. Other major professional interests are in women’s health; pregnancy; birth preparation; seniors’ health;  post-surgical recovery; emotional health; stress.

Please note that the benefits of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine within these fields vary from condition to condition and from case to case, so you may want to know more detail once you come for treatment.

Please feel free to contact me or make an appointment to discuss your needs and whether Chinese medicine is suitable for you.

George, a certified practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), completed his degree at the University of Western Sydney. Driven by his passion for TCM, he journeyed to China for an internship at the Municipal Hospital of Nanjing.

With an innate desire to aid others, George lives by the mantra of "Empower, inspire, and educate." Initially starting in a science program, he shifted gears due to personal health challenges, leading to fatigue and focus difficulties. This prompted him to embrace TCM, a decision that brought him focus, energy, and equilibrium over time. He's captivated by the intricacies of Chinese medicine and its capacity to facilitate self-healing given the right environment.

Continuously seeking ways to foster self-improvement, George endeavours to share his passion. His approach involves not just acupuncture and herbs, but also holistic guidance on lifestyle, mindfulness, and exercise as needed.

Outside of his profession, George finds solace in nature, meditation, further studies in health and wellbeing, and cherished moments with loved ones.

His areas of interests encompass musculoskeletal pain, migraines, fatigue, focus issues, emotional disorders, stress, anxiety, digestive problems, allergies, asthma, and respiratory issues.

Witnessing his patients flourish is George's ultimate fulfillment. Take your first step on your health journey by connecting with George at Southpoint Health today, to see if Chinese medicine is suitable for you and your goals.

Mark is a registered acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist. He welcomes your enquiry.
