About Lucy Heller: Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbal Medicine practitioner.

I discovered acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine many years ago and was amazed by its powerful effects on physical and emotional well being.

I have always preferred the warmer weather and beautiful beaches of New South Wales and have recently moved to Sydney from Melbourne. I studied at the Southern School of Natural Therapies and graduated with a Bachelor of Health Science (Chinese Medicine).

My experience
I am experienced in treating a wide range of conditions and I love treating everything, as it is really about working with the individual rather than the condition. However, I have a special interest in treating:

• Musculoskeletal conditions
• Pain management
• Stress and emotional well-being
• Women’s health
• Digestive problems

I have undertaken a lot of further study in these areas, and I use a variety of acupuncture styles including Five Element acupuncture and Dr Tan & Master Tung acupuncture, depending on the patient and the condition they are presenting with. I have also completed further study in cosmetic acupuncture.

During a treatment
We will talk about all of the factors that may be contributing to your health issue. I will also diagnose your condition by looking at your tongue and feeling your pulse- these are traditional diagnosis tools in Chinese Medicine.

In addition to acupuncture, you may also receive other treatment methods such as moxibustion, cupping, gua sha and Chinese herbal medicine, where appropriate. My treatment style is gentle, and it focuses on bringing you back into balance.
