DR JASON CALLANAN
CHINESE MEDICAL HERBALIST
MAppSc (CHM), BHSc (Acu), Cert.IV-TCMRM
Jason has been practising Traditional Chinese Medicine for more than 10 years and is a nationally registered Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner in both Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine.
He completed his Masters program in Chinese Herbal Medicine at RMIT, and his Acupuncture degree at Endeavour College of Natural Health in Brisbane.
He was first introduced to Acupuncture more than 25 years ago when he received treatment for a back injury he was told would need surgery; instead he received six sessions of acupuncture which successfully resolved the issue. Following this experience, he developed a strong passion and interest in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Jason has also studied massage styles including Acupressure, remedial techniques, Trigger Point Therapy, and trained in Shiatsu under the private instruction of a Japanese Master. He has incorporated these massage techniques into his clinical practice of Acupuncture to achieve maximum benefit for his patients.
Whilst he was studying Acupuncture, Jason privately trained with a Grandmaster in the internal meditation arts of Tai Chi and Qi Gong, and continues these practices today.
Clinically, Jason practises the TCM principle of treating each patient as an individual, and tailoring treatment and advice to address each patient specifically. His treatments may include Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, nutritional advice and supplementation, Chinese dietary and exercise advice, to not only treat illness, but with the goal of maintaining wellness and vitality.
He is an experienced, caring, devoted and enthusiastic practitioner with a strong interest in pain management, digestive health, neurological conditions, gynecological issues, respiratory and immune issues, and the treatment of emotional disorders.
Jason provides Acupuncture and TCM to Fitzroy North, Fitzroy, Carlton North, Carlton, Abbotsford, Clifton Hill, Collingwood, Northcote, Thornbury, Brunswick, Brunswick East, Preston and Fairfield.
