Tanya has a longstanding keen interest in health and healing. Originally enrolled in a medical degree at the University of Adelaide in the 1980s, Tanya had her first tastes of Chinese medicine when she tried acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine for a few of her own health issues. The results sparked an interest in understanding Chinese medicine and learning more about what it had to offer.
The holistic philosophy and approach of Chinese medicine resonated deeply with Tanya. She diverged her studies into what then became a lifelong passion for learning more about TCM and using her knowledge to help others seeking a different approach to health and healing.
In Chinese medicine the physical, mental and emotional aspects of a person all need to be balanced for optimum health and well-being. We are not just a set of separate body parts that sometimes become faulty. Chinese medicine has understood this for thousands of years. It provides a system for assessing the whole person to see what underlying energetic imbalances may be at the root of each condition and causing symptoms. By providing what’s needed to address these imbalances the body is then able to re-establish equilibrium and heal.
Tanya has been practicing acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine at the Wholistic Medical Centre in Surry Hills Sydney since 1998, and enjoys working alongside their team of skilled and experienced practitioners. She will recommend using acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping and/or Chinese herbal medicine according to your needs and her experience of what works best for your condition. Your diet and lifestyle will also be considered and advice on these may be given.
Over many years Tanya has acquired extensive experience with a wide variety of both acute and chronic conditions. She has a special interest in all aspects of women’s health and loves to support women in staying healthy and balanced through all phases and transitions of life.
