The Story... 

Welcome to 彬彬_Michelle , Maroubra, which has been serving the local and broader community since 2011. Before 3rd, May 2020,  the clinic previous name is MyAcupuncture (彬彬的针灸)

My family background

My grandfather is Professor Hao Gang (郝刚), who is the headmaster of Nanjing Traditional Chinese Medicine University (南京中医药大学)as well as a famous Chinese Medicine Practitioner and PhD Supervisor in China. In his life, he has got 23 very creative awards from China in Chinese Herbal Medicine industry. He worked at Air Force General Hospital, (PLA) (空军总医院)before he left the world. He is also the first group to doing public presentations at Harvard University about Chinese herbal medicine in 1950s. In China, he is a very famous Chinese medicine practitioner in his times. His name has been written on China famous practitioners list. 


Therefore, I grew up from traditional military family background. I moved to Australia with my husband. 

My Chinese Medicine Learning Journey

At the age of 19, I began my formal 5 years Chinese Medicine university training at Dalian Medicine University.


After I graduate from my bachelor, I was working as a Professsor Baixiao Zhao (赵百孝) research assistant at Beijing University of Chinese Medicine (BUCM), the department of Acupuncture and moxibustion.

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.

I was also highly recomended by the famous Acupunctuist Prof. Shennong Cheng(程莘农).  After then, I also worked as a clinical supervisor in the Acupuncture hospital until I moved to Australia.

Since 2015, I also became a formal disciple of Professor Zhang Jin(张缙) 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).
