Ancient Wisdom for Modern Life
Dr. Jessie Fayers tCM
Jessie has been interested in Chinese Medicine and healing since she was 16 years old. Inspired by seeing acupuncture done on the guitar player of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers in one of their film clips, she sought her own first experiences of acupuncture and herbal medicine as a teenager in Sydney's Chinatown. She begun her studies in 2002 and practiced abroad for several years before returning to Australia.
In clinic, Jessie brings passion for sustainable living, gardening, diy herbalism, as well as years over 12 years of 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, bio hacks and diet advice. She continues her professional development in Chinese Medicine and pursues special interests in digestive issues, woman’s health and fertility and anxiety. She has completed her primary models with ACNEM (Nutritional and Environmental Medicine) and is looking forward to embarking on a Graduate mentor-ship program in 2021 with White Pines Institute in the USA.
Jessie has been involved in numerous healthcare and permaculture projects abroad and now is 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.
