Hi! Im Dylan.
Before studying Chinese Medicine I was training to become a Pilot.
Halfway through my traineeship though, an issue with my Heart functionality was found…this put astop to my flying career. Through every genuine effort by top ranking Cardiologists in the country, the most conservative approach offered was medication…which evidently made me sicker. In a final, somewhat skeptical attempt to find answers, I tried Chinese Medicine. Over the course of 18 months my family & I stood witness to my health improving. Echocardiogram after Echocardiogram, PET Scan after PET Scan…results showed continual improvement.
I have extensive experience in treating chronic & complex conditions, but have specific interest in Nervous system issues such as Stress, Anxiety & Depression. I have specialist training in Fertility Management, Pregnancy and Womens Issues as well as in treating Sports & Musculoskeletal injuries; which are also special interest areas of mine. My interest in sports stems largely from my own experience in playing Aussie Rules, Golf and Basketball from a very young age.
I’ve also worked closely with Brisbane and Sunshine Coast based Osteopaths to enhance my understanding of the Musculo-Skeletal system & Biomechanics of the Human body. This awareness of variable Osteopathic approaches gives me the extra edge in helping muscular aches & pains such as Back Pain, Neck & Shoulder Pain, Sciatica, Sporting Injuries etc through the use of Acupuncture.
After completing my 4 year Degree in Acupuncture at Endeavour College of Natural Medicine in Brisbane, I’ve since furthered my knowledge through completing Post Graduate specialty courses in the following areas:
- Various Certificates in 3 different styles of Japanese Acupuncture
- Certificate in Constitutional Acupuncture Facial Renewal
- Certificate in Biomesotherapy/Biopuncture
- Diplomate of Institute of Classical East Asian Medicine (ICEAM) – Canonical Herbal Medicine
I love to educate my clients on how they got to where they are with their health; I empower them through knowledge & help them with treatment, so they can make sustainable changes to regain control of their life.
After my own health journey, I believe 100% in empowering people with sound health education & then helping them take preventative action to maintain good health. In my mind, this is a critical part of the way forward to combat the ‘sickness crisis’ our society is facing now, and especially going forward into the future.

Hi, I’m Tahnee.
I hold a Bachelor of Health Science in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and have a wealth of life experience and a passion for wholistic health. I have a background in Emergency Medical Response and have previously worked off-shore in W.A. on environmental research ships. It was during this experience that I found my passion for healing.
Over the last 5 years I have developed a deeper interest & understanding for helping people with Mental/Emotional issues, Digestive Disorders, Musculoskeletal Pain and Chronic Fatigue/Auto-Immune Disorders.
I am most particularly interested though in treating women’s health issues including menstrual, Menopausal, Fertility, Post-Partum Depletion & related disharmonies.
I believe health and healing is as much the patient’s journey as their practitioner’s. As a practitioner in clinic, I have witnessed the benefits of educating each person with knowledge of their specific conditions and treatments, as well as self-care advice and basic Chinese Dietetics.
I am trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine and am furthering my studies into Japanese Acupuncture which looks at a deeper, more systemic/root causes, while using more advanced techniques to both diagnosis & treat the underlying cause of the pathology in order to better achieve and maintain a healthy physiology of the whole body. This helps us achieve more sustainable relief from your symptoms.
I look forward to helping you!

Hi, I’m Jess!
I have always had a passion for helping individuals. I originally began studying a Psychology degree, but towards the end of my second year, I found myself becoming disheartened with the idea that conditions were ‘clinical issues’ and from there people were put into a box, in which they would stay for the foreseeable future; meaning they would most likely be defined by their condition for the rest of their lives. In the end, I realised this approach didn’t align with my views & I made the snap decision to move into my Bachelor of Health Science (Acupuncture) degree, only because I had had positive experiences with Acupuncture in the past; I never looked back from that moment.
While completing my Bachelor, I also completed a Diploma of Remedial Massage and worked throughout my course in the natural health field. I found that listening to patients and educating them about their condition made a major difference in their recovery. Allowing people to voice their concerns and fears about their health made them feel more comfortable and provided a more positive healing environment. I am now confident in helping clients with a wide range of conditions including, but not limited to, musculoskeletal ailments, digestive concerns, mental/emotional conditions and women’s health such as fertility, hormonal regulation and menstrual issues.
I hold a Bachelor of Health Science (Acupuncture) and I am continuing my studies in Japanese styles o Acupuncture in order to provide a more complete treatment approach to my patients. I am registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and HICAPS is available for health fund members at the clinic.
I look forward to seeing you about the clinic, but more importantly, look forward to helping you reclaim your health!

Hey, I’m Chloe!
I grew up in north Queensland where I finished school and went on to qualify as a chef. I was a sous chef at an al la carte restaurant for a number of years before moving to Ballina in NSW.
I completed a certificate in Swedish massage, opened a mobile/home business for a year until injuring my wrist. Acupuncture accelerated my recovery and there began my interest in Chinese medicine
Amongst all things health, I have a particular interest in anxiety and depression.
Outside of the clinic & studying at Endeavour, I like to hike national parks or head to the nearest beach!
