In May 2011 Ian was elected President of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association. In October 2011 Ian was invited to attend the international forum and exhibition on integrative healthcare where he met with Li Daning, Deputy Commissioner SATCM, Peoples Republic of China.

In 2011 Ian was also asked to write two articles for the Australian Journal of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.

 “I am results focused and use an evidence informed approach to provide holistic care. I recognise that as individuals, people can respond to different types of treatment. I often combine acupuncture, acupuncture point injection, Chinese herbal medicine, nutrition, structural balancing and connective tissue release techniques to manage a wide range of conditions.”

“I consider myself to be very fortunate because I love my job. After spending 13 years in a job that I didn’t like, I got some simple advice from a valued friend, “stop complaining and do something about it”. I knew if I stayed where I was, then nothing would change so the next day I went to work and resigned. From there I found myself studying remedial massage and after gaining my qualifications I started full-time employment as a remedial therapist. It was here that I saw just how effective acupuncture could be. Four years later I completed my Bachelor of Health Science (Acupuncture) and have been working as an Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine practitioner ever since.”

“My real passion is achieving results for a client. Every day I have the opportunity to make a positive impact on the health and well-being of my clients. This drives me to continually search for better treatment methods and strive for the best possible outcomes for my clients. If however other services are needed I will help you find a solution.”

“I am dedicated to expanding the clinical role and acceptance of acupuncture and Chinese medicine as a mainstream component of the Australian health system.”
