Brian Sumin Zhao
Master Degree (honours)
Member of AACMA
My family has a history of Chinese medicine and so I began learning about Chinese medicine and meditation from a young age. In University, I studied Chinese Medicine full time for 9 years at Anhui Chinese Medicine University and the China Acadamy of Chinese Medical Science in Beijing, where I graduated with a Masters Degree.
Upon completion of my degree, I began working in a hospital as a doctor of both Chinese and western medicine. During this time, I also conducted a group Chinese medicine research project into the improvement of the bodys immune system, for which I received a National Prize. Over the years, I have gained even more experience through working at different Chinese medical practices and treating a variety of complex cases.
I have a holistic approach to Chinese medicine treatment, which includes herbal, acupuncture, meditation, massage, diet, tai chi, body meridian alignment, etc, to improve the patients own self treatment abilities.
I have treated many different patients from all over the world (including countries such as Korea, Japan, China, Australia, America, England, France, Germany, Italy, Israel, etc) using this method, which has yielded incredible results.
Julie Junying Li
Master Degree and Dip
Member of ATMS
Since I was 6 years old, I received training in meditation and Tai Chi, which taught me from an early age to utilise my Chi to improve my bodys healing power. I improved on this knowledge and learned how to apply this treatment to others at university and through further education.
I then worked at many different Chinese medicine clinics and school clinics, furthering my experience and increasing my practical, in-depth understanding of Chinese medicine and natural therapy, especially its ability to treat womens problems, pain relief, anxiety, headaches, stress, etc.
I have treated many different patients with many different cases and circumstances. However, despite their differences, my patients all have one thing in common they are all extremely satisfied with my treatment, with many commenting Wonderful, Fantastic! Youve really made me better!
NATURAL HEALING NEWS
Why do we get arthiritis even in summer?
Recently I have had lots of patients coming to me seeking treatment for arthiritis that is sometimes so severe that they find themselves unable to sleep. Naturally, i found this somewhat surprising as Sydney's hot sweltering summers isn't exactly an excellent breeding ground for arthiritic aches and pains.
However, after further research and consideration I realised that the agonising joint pains these people experienced were due precisely to Sydney's hot summer weather. During summer, our body tries to cool us down by opening pores and producing more sweat. Now this is all fine and dandy until we decide to turn on the air conditioner or go to a windy beach for an afternoon swim. This sudden change in temperature from one extreme to the next causes cold air to penetrate our body (more deeply due to the already opened pores), reaching our joints and causing the aching pains that plague us day after day.
And so as a final word, Natural Healing hopes that you look after your health this summer and take special care not to carelessly subject yourself, especially if you're pregnant, to temperature extremes.
PS: congratulations to yet another patient, who after over 10 yrs of unsuccessful attempts, is now happily pregnant after only one treatment at Natural Healing
STRESS & NATURAL THERAPY
In todays fast paced society, everyone no matter what their age will experience stress and anxiety at some point in their lives. This not only affect their moods, but also, their careers, family, relationships and almost every other aspect of their life. After prolonged exposure, stress will lead to Qi and blood stagnation, which then causes disorders in various parts of the body.
Natural Healing has developed a new and revolutionary treatment system involving a combination of massage, acupuncture, body meridian alignment, tai chi and diet therapy, which specifically targets the bodys emotional network, stimulating its natural relaxation and anti-stress system.
Congratulations to our 3 couples who after undergoing only 2- 3 months of Natural Healings infertility treatment system are now happily pregnant, with 1 couple already nearing their due date!
This is what one of the couples had to say.
"After all the years of trying to conceive a baby, it has finally happened in just 2 months of your acupuncture treatment !!!
We would like to say thank you so much. At first I was unsure if this would really work but it sure does. It is very powerful! I would say to anyone wanting to conceive to just trust your brilliance and let nature take care of the rest.
I think you are amazing, you have such confidence in what you do and I am sure this gives your patients positive results.
I cant thank you enough and keep up the great work."
Natural Healing believes infertility to be a result of a combination of liver and blood stagnation and kidney deficiency, which leads to a blockage in the meridian channels and thus, infertility.
Natural Healings treatment system consists of a mixture of acupuncture, lifestyle and diet therapy, acupressure, herbs and body meridian alignment. This system has been proven to be extremely effective in treating infertility for those up to 45 years of age.
"My hair started to thin after menopause. I knew I would end up with bald patches eventually, because it happened to my mother and grandmother as well. However, the hair loss became too upsetting and I went to see Brian about it. He was confident he could make my hair grow back but I was quite skeptical
"Suddenly 3 months after I began treatment, I realized that my hair was growing back. The bald patches were less noticeable and I believe that they will be totally covered eventually. I cannot speak too highly of Brian and Julie who are both kind, gentle people who know their Chinese medicine."
"So Balding Boys and Babes of Bondi, go see Brian!" - Mary
Dear Brian, just a short note to thank you for the treatment you did for my right shoulder, injured at tennis. The rotator cuff was damaged and resulted in pain and weakness when playing tennis or in general use of my arm
Your treatment of acupuncture and massage over a period of 3 months restored function and strength to the shoulder and after 1 year from starting the treatment and regular doing of exercises you showed me, the shoulder is now feeling strong and moving again.
I can now enjoy my tennis again, Thank you very much.
My wife and I have been married for 5 years and despite our best efforts, my wife has never fallen pregnant. During this time, we received treatment from many doctors to no avail. Finally we found Dr Brian and after taking herbal medicine for 4 months, my wife became pregnant with a baby boy. A year ago she gave birth to him and he is as healthy as can be. She is now pregnant again with another healthy child. Thank you so much Dr Brian.
Thanks to Dr Brian, I first enjoyed taking remedial massage for my back and then the Chinese medicine pills he gave me to cure my stomach aches. At the same time, I was very stressed and I wanted a child. Dr Brian helped me relax and helped improve my general wellbeing and increase my chances of pregnancy. Now I feel good AND I have a baby. I will be happy to have some Chinese medicine after my delivery as long as I think it helps to recover better from pains and health problems (even if they are natural). Thanks you Dr Brian. See you later (Cyane)
Im a very happy customer. Now I have 2 daughters. Before I was having trouble conceiving and nearly lost my 2nd pregnancy. The herbs not only helped me fall pregnant after months of trying, but also prevented the loss of my 2nd daughter from miscarriage. Thank you so much Brian
I had my first child 8 years ago. My husband and I decided to try for another child in 2006. I conceived but unfortunately I miscarried at 6 weeks.
8 months later, we decided to try again. A friend of mine told me about Natural Healing and how warm and friendly Brian and Julie were and to try to conceive using acupuncture, as she knew of their previous success
I have been seeing Julie and Brian for 4 months, after having herbs, acupuncture once a week and alignments I am now 5 weeks pregnant
Not only did Brian keep me positive throughout my treatments, I always knew that he was going to help me fall pregnant because he has a very special gift in making you believe and feel comfortable, warm and happy!
I have the highest praise for Dr Brian and the huge help he gave me. I am now the very proud mother of a wonderful baby boy and Im convinced that the acupuncture made a huge difference.
On 2 August, baby Freddie arrived after 2 years of hard work. At 42, a decision to have a baby came late, but I have no idea how challenging it would become. Over a year of increasingly strong fertility treatment proved unsuccessful and like many before me, I was seeking any alternatives that might. I knew nothing about Chinese medicine or acupuncture, having never used it before.
From the first meeting, Dr Brian instilled a calm confidence in his patient. He first listened to my story, my frustrations and then explained how treatment with acupuncture could help relax me and channel the right energies for becoming pregnant. He made it clear that the treatment was not a one night cure and that I should persist with treatment for at least 3 months if possible. So while I continued with IVF treatment, I went to Dr Brian 2 or sometimes 3 times a week.
The acupuncture itself I found for the most part increasingly relaxing and theres no doubt that you can feel quite energized after these sessions. Dr Brian was always very patient, supportive and confident of successful. Almost to the day of 3 months, I was pregnant at last.
I cannot be 100% sure that it was the acupuncture that was solely responsible for making the difference I was trying to get fitter every week and it is also said that IVF treatment sometimes is a matter of time and eventually, pregnancy occurs. But what I can say is that Dr Brians acupuncture and herbs, which I also took did relax me and gave me a new hope and confidence that Id be successful. And I believe that the acupuncture really helped stimulate the uterus to me, Dr Brian played a critical role in the arrival of baby Freddie and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who is having difficulty falling pregnant. Dr Brian and his team, including his terrific wife Julie also a doctor, are highly professional and great to work with.
Thank you Dr Brian for all your advice and support and I hope you have the chance to help many others like me.
After my sons birth, my wife was very weak and her face became paralysed. We were both very worried and upset so we looked for a doctor to help. Fortunately we found Dr Brian and because of his intensive treatment, she recovered in one and a half months. We are so grateful. Thank you! (Mr Tang)
Dr Brian gave me herbal, massage and acupuncture to help me recover from high stress level and insomnia. Just a few weeks of herbal treatment has produced results. I feel much better, more at peace and happier. I recommend Brian and Julie to anyone who may be ill, tired or stressed. They have helped me at this time of my life and I will continue to come to them for other problems.
I had a car accident 5 years ago and my right shoulder never fully recovered. I tried several massages and went to chiropractors, which helped for the short term. The pain in my shoulder always came back after a couple of weeks. I had heard about acupuncture but had never considered it until I walked pas Dr Brians clinic. He suggested acupuncture and provided quick results. I was skeptic in the beginning but was convinced by the results after the first session and since then, I havent had any back or shoulder pain. It is just amazing to wake up in the morning without stiffness or pain. Thanks a lot Dr Brian!
Lung problems / Shortness of breath
Mum had shortness of breath, lung failure and diabetes. A few months ago she began to feel unwell and went to a doctor who gave her pills and blood tests to try and find the cause of her ache, vomiting, diarrhea and shortness of breath. It did not work and mum was getting very sick. A friend recommended her to Dr Brian and I have to say after seeing him, mum is now so much better. I thought it might be coming to the end with her, but now I have hope again.
I weighed 115 kg before, but then I went on Dr Brians weight loss pills for 2 months and now I weight 95kg. This really works!
Rid yourself of Bad Habits Today! I Did!
"I was a self confessed chocolate junkie- 5 bars a day, every day! Obsessed by my addiction I couldn't go a day without a fix of chocolate. I was a slave to Cadbury.
"Too weak-willed to give up myself, I turned to acupuncture for help. With a combination of treatments, Brian and Julie stopped my desire for chocolate on the first day. I continued with treatment twice weekly for three weeks to ensure that I would give up permanently. I am a free person today, and it was so easy. It was truly amazing!
"Thank you Brian and Julie, Thank you Natural Healing."
Fatigue and sleepiness
"Ive been sick with pneumonia, short breath and headaches. I always slept and didnt want to go anywhere. I ended up getting cortisone, but that didnt help. I felt very lethargic so I decided to see Brian. He gave me acupuncture and herbs and massage and alignment. I just couldnt believe how fantastic he is. I felt great after the first time I saw him, my breathing became normal, I felt light, had more energy, no headaches and more spirit to do thing, to go anywhere. Just go see Brian, he will help you all the way and what I like about him is he says the truth and what he says, she means. He is sure to help you in anyway."
At first I thought I had caught a cold, the next day I felt wiped out it was the flu. I saw Brian at 1 pm he did acupuncture& powder herbs for me to take 3 time a day I felt better slightly, after 1 more day in bed, I felt 95% better and although I felt so much better 3 day later, I followed up with a 2nd treatment. I can recommend Brians acupuncture & herbs as a fast way to recovery for a flu that in most cases would wipe you out for a week to 10 days. (Sandy).
Anna has been suffering from chronic lower back pain and numbness ever since she was a child. There would be times when it would be so bad that she had to lie in bed for days, suffering from agonizing pain. Anna had previously been to my clinic for another illness, which I successfully treated and so when Anna had another pain attack, she came to me for treatment.
After only receiving 2 acupuncture treatments in conjunction with herbal medicine, the pain had significantly reduced and she was able to leave bed and go to work. This is what she wrote to me. Thank you Brian, I just want you to know I truly appreciate how much you have helped me, it amazing what you do. You have a great gift and are very wise. Its nice to trust a doctor isnt going to just give you drugs and really cares.
I had a lot of pain in my back. I went to doctors but they could not help me. I was told I needed an operation. I was in so much pain like a knife going in my back. So I decided to see Brian and asked if he could help me. He said yes and he did. Now I feel so much better. My pain is nearly gone. I can sleep much better now. I recommend Brian to everyone
Severe Back Pain
After a few alignment treatments for my back pain, it was so much better. From now on, I visit Brian for my other treatments instead of seeing my family doctor. Brian and Julie are both my family doctors now.
"I have suffered from high anxiety and bouts of depression for most of my life. I currently take medication for depression, oesophageal reflux (excessive stomach acid) and high blood pressure. Through the best medicines and counselling money can buy, my depression has been in check for several years now, however my anxiety has persisted.
"The symptoms were many: foggy head, tension in the chest, back and shoulder muscle tension, irritability, and a strong nervous twinge in my heart and stomach. The incessant feeling of a monkey on my back was draining and quite frankly depressing. I was determined to eliminate anxiety for both my own health and for the sake of my family who had to put up with my constant grumpiness.
"After a good deal of research on the Internet I decided to give acupuncture a try. I didnt engage in this lightly. As a science graduate I am a very healthy sceptic. I have yet to come across a reasonable explanation of how acupuncture works, but, since no one is quite certain how anti-depressant medications work either, I couldnt discount it. In any case, there seems to be a reasonable number of studies that have demonstrated its efficacy.
"My account here is another example to add to that collection. I have been coming to see Brian for about 4 months now. I started out with 8 treatments over the first two weeks and then reduced that to twice a week. At first I did not notice much change. I was a bit tired and more relaxed, but otherwise unchanged. Brian increased the strength of each treatment as he learned how much I could handle. Then, one weekend after a particularly strong treatment, things changed significantly. I found myself smiling and actually burst into laughter for no reason whatsoever. I was alone at the time, but Im sure that if anyone had been looking on would have thought I just heard the greatest joke. I now smile as a natural state of being rather than being dour for no particular reason a far better state."
"Brians treatments normally consist of ten to twenty acupuncture needles in the hands, feet, neck, head and sometimes face for about 30 minutes. They can hurt going in and frequently cause a shooting pain from a nerve or two. Its uncomfortable but not painful during the 30 minutes of rest, but I can often doze off during that time. There is also a bit pain when the needles are taken out. Once out, however there is no further discomfort. Afterwards, there is a great feeling of being both tired and relaxed. For the next day or so there is a great feeling of contentment if not unexplained happiness. Smiling is the most significant side effect! "
"At first the effect only lasted a day or so. Each time it has had a greater and more long-lasting effect. The old two steps forward, one step back story. Im sure every persons progress will be different. What can be said, at least for me, is that the change is very gradual. Compared to the almost immediate effect of medication, acupuncture is very subtle. The changes are much more natural, however they remove the anxiety without changing me or producing any unpleasant side effects."
"I have heard people say that if acupuncture hurts then its not being done correctly. That, in my experience, is emphatically wrong. The treatments that are the most uncomfortable, that hit the most nerves, are the strongest and provide the most benefit. No pain, no gain."
I have been suffering chest congestion headaches for months. Thanks to Brian in only 4 intense treatments of acupuncture, massage and herbal, I am feeling so much better. I cant thank Brian enough for the relief I am feeling. I am from Canberra visiting for only 1 week. So much help in such a short time. Thank you so much
When I came to see Brian I was exhausted, stressed and had no energy for a few months. After Brian did a body alignment treatment on me, I felt very emotional the next day. Then something shifted and I had more energy and more enthusiasm for like. My eyes look so much shinier and healthier and Im also getting lots of ideas and plans for the future. I feel more positive and confident and I wanted to do more. I feel much stronger in myself
3 years insomnia
I have been suffering from insomnia for approximately 3 yrs. It generally took me up to 3 hrs to fall asleep per night. I felt very anxious prior to going to bed for fear of never getting a good nights sleep. After trying sleeping tablets and other natural remedies such as chamomile tea and nervatona tablets, I decided to seek Dr Brians help. After simply one treatment of acupuncture and some herbs, I had my first great nights sleep in years on the very same night of my appointment. I am very satisfied with Dr Brians assistance and thrilled to finally be sleeping so well.
I have very strong period pain when I have menstruation and every month I feel extremely wrong. I decided I wanted to try Chinese Medicine because I took lots of painkillers before but they made me feel terrible. So I got acupuncture and herbs. After my first treatment, all my terrible pain is gone. I sleep very well now without cramps and crying and I feel very comfortable and relaxed. I would like to thank Dr Brian and Julie for showing me the natural way of healing.
Stress, panic and anxiety
I have suffered from panic, anxiety and stress since I was 19yrs old. I have had many trips to counselors, psychologists, dieticians and doctors for my complaint. I am currently a reflexologist and an acupuncture student and so I felt I should give acupuncture and herbs a try to help me. After my first visit to Brian, I had about 20 needles from my feet and hands to my head and stomach to unblock the channels and help calm the emotions. I left feeling very light as if someone had taken sunglasses off my head. I went home and slept for 2 hrs and woke feeling pretty good. The second time I had many needles again which was a strong treatment and left me with a few bruises, but my body seemed to be reacting well and I have a clear head and I am able to concentrate again. I would tell people with anxiety to come out and talk about it and try some acupuncture to help them. There is no stigma and it can help them with their emotions (Damian)
Just wanted to let you know, the body alignment and massage you just did a couple of days ago was fantastic. Ive had a pain in my right shoulder for over 2 months especially when I slept on that side. But after treatment, it was gone that night and the night after. I would think it will be the same tonight as well. I also felt a sense of well-being and relaxation. I would like you to look at a couple of other people I know as well, as I think you might be able to help them. (Danny)
Candida and Thrush
I am a 25 year old woman and have had Candida for 6 long years of my life. It manifested itself as thrush. It also had an unbearable effect on my emotions. The thrush was constant for years. I had to exclude all sugar, yeast, dairy and gluten from my diet. No pharmaceutical treatments worked. The emotional side effects were the worst part of it. I felt depressed, angry and totally out of tune with my body! If I didnt know the cause was Candida, I would have been on anti-depressants. I came to Natural Healing one week ago. Julie and Brian have given me a series of acupuncture and re-alignment treatments and herbs. I have felt better in the past week than I have felt in the past 6 years! I dont have thrush and I feel HAPPY and balanced! The experience has changed my life! If you are in doubt, come in and see Julie and Brian. It is worth the time to get diagnosed and get betterfor good! (Anne)
I'm now a Happier and Healthier person!!
Since I have started acupuncture treatment with Brian and Julie, I have experienced a noticeable improvement in my general sense of well-being. The treatments have brought healing and balance on the inner levels.
The following are ways acupuncture has helped me as an individual
My thinking is stronger and clearer
I have far less tension in my body and feel more relaxed
I am slower to get angry. My temperament is calmer
I am happier and can laugh more readily
My cravings for a glass or more of wine are gone. In fact I am drinking far less alcohol than I did before
I feel more in control of my life
My energy levels have improved
I feel more protected from others negativity or dark moodsmore detached
I am less anxious and worry less about any problems I may be experiencing
On a metaphysical level, I feel as though my aura is strengthened and brighter
I highly recommend Brian and Julie to anyone who wants to improve their lives and experience improved health and heightened well-being
A few months ago, a young man in his mid 20s walked into Natural Healing, asking for help with his problem. When enquired about his symptoms, he responded with a long list, which he has given me permission to disclose here. The list was as follows
After about 2 3 months treatment, he is now feeling much better. This is what he had to say: This acupuncture has totally changed my life. Ive suffered from terrible anxiety for many years, seen all sorts of specialists and looked everywhere for a cure. Acupuncture is the first thing that worked! I can honestly say I feel like a new person. I have the guys from Natural Healing to thank for that.
"I was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2006 and had all conventional treatment. We came to Brian in early 08 and have been having both acupuncture and herbal medicine, which has made a huge difference to me both in giving me more energy and clearer thinking. It has also helped treat my constipation and rash. The tumour is now in remission and I am feeling much much better in myself." (Max)
Migraine and period pain
I have suffered from migraines for 11 years. I have previously tried homeopathy and another acupuncturist and GP. My migraines have been regular at the onset of my period. The pain has been excruciating and often with nausea and vomiting. I have regularly been bedridden for 2-3 days. I have now been coming to Sumin for 4 weeks, 2 x weekly. His treatments has been different to previous practitioners and I am happy to say that this month I have had my first pain free period in many years. I am extremely happy and so is my family (Jackie)
Severe Abdominal Pain
"My trouble started 3 months ago. I was in serious pain (abdominal pain) every single day. Discomfort in my stomach and mid abdomen was there 24/7. One day I decided to go to see GP (it wasnt normal for me to be in pain all the time). She is an excellent GP, however she wasnt able to see the exact cause of my pain. She asked me to change my diet and take some Buscopan laxative and wait."
"After 3 days, there was still no change. The abdominal pain got worse and I was referred to hospital. Coming from a medical background, I have enough knowledge to know that my symptoms were unusual, more likely close to appendicitis, which would mean an operation. I refused to go to hospital and was referred to gastroenterologist. He is one of the best, however my symptoms comes and goes and as during his visit there wasnt any major changes present, he asked me to call me if any extreme pain occurred."
"One month after, my situation changed a bit, but abdominal discomfort and occasional pain was still there. My brother (does acupuncture in SR) asked me to go to see someone and mentioned what my problem could be. I came here and was told that I did not have enough energy and that I had liver stagnation. After 2 days treatment, the change was unreal!!! No pain (after 2 days)! No discomfort at all. Of course I had to change my diet, but still ever since I walked through this door Im only BETTER"
