About York Traditional Acupuncture
I specialise in the treatment of pain (both chronic and acute) anywhere in the body, stress management, IBS and gastrointestinal conditions, stopping smoking, and women’s health, including pregnancy care.
You may be interested to learn how I myself got into acupuncture in the first place…
It started in the year 1999 when I was working in Japan as a language teacher - I was often overworked, stressed and tired. Nothing seemed to be able to get me back to my usual vibrant self.
Then, one day, a colleague of mine suggested I’d try acupuncture as a way to restore my energy levels and to relieve my stress. I was (as you might expect) somewhat skeptical about acupuncture and concerned about the needles.
Ultimately, however, my sense of adventure led me to embrace the East Asian culture that surrounded me. I had my first acupuncture experience with a blind practitioner (I have since learnt that, in Japan, it is quite common to find blind acupuncturists). The moment I met Manabu, my skepticism doubled - how was he going to find the right acupuncture points to heal me?
To my surprise though, after just one session, I was able to face my daily challenges with renewed energy. With several more sessions, I was back to my optimistic, energetic self and enjoying life even more than before!!
From Japan, I moved to Australia – Brisbane – to study Traditional Chinese Medicine. I studied full-time for four years at the Australian College of Natural Medicine (now called the Endeavour College of Natural Health). My studies encompassed both Eastern and Western Medicine and included hundreds of hours of clinical practice. Upon graduation I received the “Most Outstanding Student Practitioner of Acupuncture” award.
I worked as a Practitioner of Chinese Medicine at various clinics in Brisbane, before deciding to work on a cruise ship in the Caribbeans as the official “Resident Acupuncturist at Sea”. This was a truly remarkable experience!
On board the cruise ship, I learnt just how powerful acupuncture can be. My patients there could usually have only between 1 and 5 treatment sessions before disembarking (the length of that particular cruise was 7 days). The truly remarkable phenomenon I discovered was that the results of one treatment at sea were the equivalent to having two or even three treatments on land! Because my patients were on holiday, more relaxed and surrounded by water (a healing element), they were more receptive to healing.
Speaking four languages (English, Italian, French, and Spanish) and having lived in six different countries, no matter where you’re from and what language you speak, I understand that what you want is to be healthier so that you are able to enjoy the lifestyle you deserve.
