Hi there, my name is Michael Bending, I am situated in Manly Vale on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. I practice Chinese herbal medicine, remedial massage, acupuncture and sports massage.
Welcome to Health Essence Chinese Medicine and Massage
I utilise an evidence based perspective to clinical treatment and prefer an integrated medicine approach to treating health. I believe strongly in working collaboratively with other medical professionals and other therapists to achieve the best possible results for my clients. I am registered with the Australian Government Health Practitioners Regulation Agency as well as being a member of the Australian Traditional Medicine Society.
I have competed as a triathlete and at a national level, however I am only currently training for fitness. I have a mind that is constantly seeking knowledge in the field of medicine with a huge desire to assist and serve people to help them lead a happy and healthy life. I concentrate primarily on and am highly specialised in the areas of dermatology, skin disorders, oncology, auto/immune disorders, fertility and orthopaedics (musculoskeletal injuries).
Throughout the years I have travelled and spent time studying in a number of medical clinics and hospitals within China to update my clinical knowledge and to continue to do so on a regular basis. I strong believe in an integrated health system that utilises the best of both Chinese medicine and western medicine.
