Richard’s original training and qualifications was in Engineering. He is a natural problem solver, and is methodical in his approach to all things.
In the early nineties, he requalified as a health practitioner, and trained within a Classical Chinese tradition in Australia (UTS) and Beijing (BUCM). He has been in practice since 2004. Over time, he has gravitated to the more contemporary Taiwanese style of Dr Tan’s, Si Yuan Balance Method and Tung's style acupuncture. He has particular interest in pain management and/or resolution. Richard is also a very experienced remedial massage therapist, with an excellent capacity to 'hear' the muscular tension of the body and then modulate pressure, technique and dosage accordingly.
