Up until a few years ago, practitioners could list conditions and symptoms that they believed their treatments could alleviate. In 2012, Chinese Medicine became nationally regulated by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). This is the same body that regulates doctors, psychologists, osteopaths, dentists, paramedics etc.
Being registered with AHPRA assures you as the patient that your practitioner has adequate qualifications and meets certain industry standards of conduct and continued professional development. AHPRA has very strict advertising guidelines to prevent regulated practitioners from making misleading statements of claims in relation to their particular field.
So, although the history of Chinese Medicine dates back hundreds of years, and although the classical literature comments on many a disease and illness, unless a condition has been extensively researched and shown to be effectively treated with Chinese medicine then it cannot be individually listed by us here on our website. There have been thousands of good quality research trials done on Chinese medicine, however less than 10 conditions have been approved can be mentioned in any sort of advertising material.
So, if you have a query as to whether or not Chinese medicine can help you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch via phone or our contact us page here on the website to further discuss the particulars of your individual health needs and for us to provide you with more information of Chinese Medicine and how if could be of help to you.
