Dr Nicole Trudgeon (Chinese Medicine Practitioner)
I help women and their families, like you, find your own brand of balance in healing.
Because your vision of health is as unique as you are.
I primarily use the tools of Chinese medicine - Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine, but also a blend of therapies that integrate the best of Eastern and Western expertise to help you heal and strengthen your body in one-on-one consultations.
Having a keen interest in women’s reproductive health, I support women to approach life CREATIVELY - to breathe deeply, to exercise differently, to eat foods and herbs that nourish vibrant health and fertility, to express your emotions honestly and to LET GO of the negative effects of stress and limiting belief systems.
Focusing your body's attention to your creative self or reproductive organs, which so often has been starved of attention and circulation. This approach sometimes means some pretty big shifts or lifestyle changes, as our body’s never came with a how-to book about healthy expression of our creativity and/or fertility.
Working together, you learn how to live life again - fully, joyfully, and abundantly.
Acupuncture Holistic Medicine began in 2014. A small holistic wellness clinic, set in a quiet, relaxed residential setting where I practice acupuncture and herbal medicine.
In 2014 I graduated from Endeavour College of Natural Health with a Bachelor of Health Science (Acupuncture) degree and Dux medal. In 2017, I completed a Masters of Applied Science (Chinese herbal medicine) degree with Distinction at RMIT. During my studies I traveled to Nanjing, China to go deeper into the study of classical herbal medicine with Professor Huang Huang at his clinic.
In 2018 I began teaching at Endeavour College of Natural Health as a casual academic lecturer teaching Foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine, TCM Research, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Paediatrics and Advanced Acupuncture Techniques.
In 2018 I’m continuing my passion for learning by continuing my study of Chinese herbal medicine, including classical formulas, diagnosis and pathophysiology according to Shang Han Lun and Jing Gui Yao Lue - both ancient texts that are totally relevant today, with Sharon Weizenbaum as part of the White Pine Healing Institute, two year Graduate Mentorship Program. So looking forward to learning from Sharon who has over 30 years experience and a special interest in gynecology and obstetrics.
My greatest reward is seeing each person’s unique transformation. When people feel their body changing, becoming healthy, flourishing so they feel more empowered to do more of what they love in their lives and communities.
