Ancient Wisdom for Modern Life
Dr. Jessie Fayers tCM
Jessies interest in Chinese Medicine and healing was sparked when she was just 16 years old. She begun her formal studies straight out of high school in 2002, graduating with a Bachelor of Applied Science (TCM). Her internship was in Jiangsu Provincial hospital in Nanjing, China where she focused on gynaecology, gastroenterology and oncology. For several years she worked abroad before returning to Australia where she was then mentored in gentle Japanese style acupuncture and moxibustion in the tradition of Masakazu Ikeda Sensai and Kikko Matsumoto.
Jessie brings her passion for sustainable living, gardening, diy herbalism into her practice, alongside 12 years of clinical experience in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. She loves to be up to date with current health research and imparts her findings with clients as lifestyle tips, health and diet advice. She continues her professional development in Chinese Medicine and pursues special interests in digestive issues, woman’s health, fertility and anxiety. She has completed her primary models with ACNEM (Nutritional and Environmental Medicine) and uses and integrated approach to her patients health.
Jessie has been involved in numerous healthcare and permaculture projects abroad and recently has been a volunteer acupuncturist at the Asylum Seekers Resource Center.
I use an integrative approach to health. My practice is evidence based and rooted in the ancient wisdom of Chinese Medicine.
What to expect
A typical session involves an in depth discussion about your health. I will ask many questions about indicators of your well being and will examine your tongue and pulse. Each session, as you move closer to balance, these indicators will be re-assessed. If results are available I will analyze pathology results. Your appointment will include acupuncture and cupping, guasha and moxabustion. Included can be prescriptions for an individualized herbal formula or supplements. You will receive resources on diet and lifestyle.
Personalized care means that your health plan is specific to you. No two people will have the same treatment, even if they share the same symptoms. East Asian medicine uses pattern identification that are unique to each individual. This approach seeks to understand the root causes of illness, and treat the cause.
