G’day!  my name is Ian Ryan

My practice philosophy is to provide the highest standard of holistic health care, utilizing Natural Medicines including Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Homeopathy, Nutritional and Dietary Therapy.

I have been in full-time clinical practice since 1983.

Prior to studying Chinese Medicine I have developed an interest and curiosity in Chinese and Eastern Philosophy including Buddhism and Taoism which naturally led me into the healing arts.

In the mid to late 1970s I have undertaken lengthy studies in the UK involving Meditation, Tai Chi and Qi Gong, and was then introduced to Chinese Medical Philosophy and specifically Acupuncture.

I am especially looking forward to working together with you on a health and well-being program to help you achieve your best physical, mental and emotional health.

“Your health is your most valuable asset.”

 I am a member of the:
