Lachlan is a warm, kind, and gentle healthcare professional. He started out on his way to becoming an Acupuncturist and Herbalist via a number of years working as a social worker in the inner southern suburbs of Melbourne. After a few years he started looking for a different way of helping people. Lachlan was first exposed to acupuncture as a child by his family GP, but had never really tried it until his hay fever started getting out of control in early adulthood, at which point he decided to give it a go and has never looked back. He has always had an interest in east Asian philosophy, and the practicality and simplicity of Chinese medicine appealed to him.
From his work as a social worker, Lachlan developed a strong interest in treating mental health conditions. He commonly integrates with GP’s and Psychologists to provide a higher level of care for his patients. He has a deep understanding of the effects that stress can have on a person, and what it can lead to if left unchecked for too long. Chinese medicine offers a powerful and effective approach to regaining balance in one’s life. Lachlan also commonly works with men and the health conditions that are specific to them. This can include mental health concerns, as well as physical and sexual health issues.
Lachlan completed a four year bachelor degree in Chinese Medicine, and has furthered his knowledge through specific training around mental and emotional health, and in musculoskeletal conditions. He went on to complete a clinical internship in Beijing with renowned acupuncturist Dr Wang Ju-Yi. He also holds a bachelor degree in Social Science (Psychology), is registered with the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia and is a member of the Australian Traditional Medicine Society (ATMS).
