Registered Acupuncturist, Shonishin Paediatric Acupuncture & Men’s Health
Dr Scott Stephens – Registered Chinese Medicine Practitioner, BHSc (Acupuncture),
Having trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Japanese style acupuncture, Balance Method and Shonishin (paediatric acupuncture), Scott can offer a variety of methods to best treat your condition. This may be within the TCM framework which includes tongue and pulse diagnosis, Japanese style palpation and meridian pathway diagnosis or the Balance Method of using distal points on the meridians which avoids aggravating the local areas of pain.
In diagnosing and treating your condition Scott will use his knowledge and the appropriate methods which will be most effective for your presenting condition, allowing your body to reclaim its balance and recover from the disharmony in which it finds itself. Scott has a keen interest in the following treatment areas:
- Pain Relief/Injury
- Men’s Health
- Digestive/Autoimmune disorders
An interest in Chinese Medicine began many years ago for Scott when he found the great benefits of acupuncture in treating his own health concerns and seeing the results of acupuncture in others close to him. Scott quickly realised that by using this age-old medicine it enabled/activated the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Then and now this still delights and continually inspires him.
“My interest in Chinese Medicine began many years ago when I found the great benefits of acupuncture in treating my own health concerns and seeing results of others close to me. Realising for myself that by using this age-old medicine it enables/activates your own body’s innate ability to heal itself. Then and now this still delights and inspires me.
When the body is in imbalance causing you pain or discomfort, my main priority as a practitioner is to get you back to being pain free or relieving your discomfort, whatever that may be. I understand that restoring your health will get you back to doing the everyday things that you enjoy most.
My philosophy is to always create a relationship within a supportive and safe environment for my patients, where we can both work on getting the greatest benefits and lasting results for you. An individual and tailored treatment plan will be established unique to your individual condition.”
