Welcome to MyAcupuncture (彬彬的针灸), Maroubra, which has been serving the local and broader community since 2011.
My name is Binbin and as director of MyAcupuncture, I want you to know that you are in expert hands.
I am a Chinese Medicine practitioner with 17 years clinical experience. I was fortunate to be born into a family of Chinese Medicine practitioners. My grandfather, Prof. Gang Hao was a famous PhD supervisor of Chinese Medicine at Nanjing Traditional Chinese Medicine University in China, before his recent passing. From a young age I studied Chinese Medicine with my grandfather.
At the age of 19, I began my formal Chinese Medicine university training at the Acupuncture Hospital of China Academy of Chinese Medicine Sciences in Beijing, which is the same institute that produced the Nobel Prize winner Tu Youyou. I graduated after five years of full time study. Following graduation, I went on to work on a Moxibustion study with expert Professor Baixiao Zhao from Beijing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
In 2006, I started my formal Masters training in Guangxi Traditional Chinese Medicine University. My first supervisor was Professor Zhi Lanying who is a famous acupuncturist specialising in women’s health.
At this time I was also fortunate to meet and to be invited to work with renowned Professor Lihong Liu, and joined his group to study Chinese Medicine.
Later, I also became a formal disciple of Professor Zhang Jin who is a representative lineage Holder of Acupuncture & Moxibustion in Traditional Chinese Medicine, as inscribed in the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity and formally approved by The World Federation of Acupuncture- Moxibustion Societies (WFAS).
In 2007, I moved on to China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences and finalised my clinical research. My master’s co-supervisor was Professor Jinhong Yang in Acupuncture hospital. During that time, I practiced with other notable professors, including Prof. Jinhong Yang, Prof. Zhongchao Wu, Prof. Shaogong Shen, Prof. Lingxu Kong, Prof. Qingxing Wei and Prof. Yunxian Zhou. I also worked as a clinical supervisor in the Acupuncture hospital until I migrated to Australia.
Today, as well as directing MyAcupuncture, Maroubra, I lecture at Endeavour College of Natural Health Sydney campus. My primary teaching areas are, TCM terminology, Chinese herbal medicine and Chinese herbal formulas.
Finally, I am also a PhD candidate of Chinese Medicine Diagnosis in University of Technology Sydney (UTS).
My current research focuses on Chinese medicine diagnostic and clinical thinking. I am familiar with quantative, qualitative and mixed research methods in Chinese Medicine research. My hope is that my current research will benefit Chinese Medicine by streamlining diagnostic system designs, offering new perspectives on clinical reasoning, education and Chinese Medicine clinical practice theory.
