Completing a Bachelor of Health Science in 2019 majoring in Acupuncture from ECNM, after previously completing Advanced Diploma in Acupuncture from AIAS in 2012.
I developed a passion for eastern medicine while studying Aikido in the 1990's. My first exposure to the benefits of meridian therapy style practice and treatment through promotion of free flow of Qi ( or Ki in Japanese) came through Kiatsu massage and point therapy learnt while training. After a period of 15 years training and teaching Aikido i decided to further pursue the "healing" element of martial arts which lead me to Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, a path that has twisted and turned for me for the past 8 years first through an Advanced Diploma then onto a Bachelor Degree via Endeavor College of Natural Medicine.
While studying and immersing myself in Chinese Medicine over this period one key saying continued to repeat in my head, from the Huang Di Nei Jing
“If there is free flow, there is no pain; if there is pain, there is lack of free flow.”
This simply yet profound statement has lead to a keen interest in Acupuncture's ability to treat pain, both chronic and acute.
In April of 2019 i had the pleasure of attending the Junior Nationals Gridiron Tournament in Sydney and working in conjunction with trainers and team doctors to maintain and treat the Queensland Junior Sundevils Team. As one of the few teams with a dedicated recovery staff we were all proud to see all our athletes maintained healthy functioning during the 8 day tournament which saw 4 games being played including the championship title. It was a unique and rewarding experience using the knowledge gained to treat up to 40 paitents daily during recovery sessions through a combination on needling, trigger point therapy, electro acupuncture, cupping and tui na.
Keely McGeary ( Registered Naturopath)
I have had a lifelong interest in human anatomy and physiology, however my curiosity in naturopathic medicine was piqued in my teenage years when it helped me to successfully overcome a painful period of ill health. Fast forward to 2016 and I found myself extremely fortunate to be graduating from Endeavour College of Natural Health with a degree in Naturopathy.
The naturopathic treatment aim is to treat holistically: to view the person as a whole, and to find and treat the cause of ill health and disharmony, as opposed to focusing on and treating only the symptoms. This approach can lead to longer lasting results. Modern naturopathy incorporates herbal and nutritional medicine principles on a foundation of human health sciences (anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pathology etc.), with also diet and lifestyle considerations. Naturopathy can help aid a myriad of functions in the body and if you are interested to learn if it can assist you, please do not hesitate to contact me.
