The Story... 

Welcome to Li Michelle , Maroubra, which has been serving the local and broader community since 2011. 

 

My name is 彬彬_Michelle and as director of Li Michelle .  Li Michelle,  business name starts from 3rd, May 2020,  its previous name is MyAcupuncture (彬彬的针灸)

Why we change the name?

"Li" is my original blood surname, however, for some personal reasons, I've decided to return back my blood surname 'Li' since today. "Michelle" is my English nickname from my Seventh-Day Adventist (SDA) church. Since 2018, I returned back to the Seventh-Day Adventist (SDA) church.  I prefer you to call me my nickname '彬彬' or 'Michelle' in the clinic from now on. 

Thank you for supporting us for the past and future. Thanks for all local council and neighbour give me a lot of supports during the covid-19 time In the future. 

What we do now and the future? 

Since 2020, Covid-19 changes our world as well as our business. Since then, we change our business from acupuncture clinic treatment to multiple businesses for general wellbeing. We will provide acupuncture services as well as Chinese medicine products. 

Acupuncture is still one of our services in the clinic. Moreover, we will step by step to provide more Chinese Medicine products. Decoction herbs, herbal tea are available in the clinic. 

Chinese medicine products will include Raw herbs, herbal tea, decoction herbs,  as well as Chinese medicine products. 

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.

 

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.

 

In 2007, I was starting my master research at the Acupuncture Hospital of China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences (CACMS)  in Beijing, which is the same institute that produced the Nobel Prize winner Tu Youyou. My master’s supervisor was Professor Jinhong Yang in Acupuncture hospital. During that time, I practiced with other famous Chinese Medicine professors, including Prof. Jinhong Yang (杨金洪), Prof. Zhongchao Wu (吴中朝), Prof. Shaogong Shen(沈绍功), Prof. Lingxu Kong(孔令诩), Prof. Qingxing Wei(魏庆兴) and Prof. Yunxian Zhou(周允贤). 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).

 

From 2011 to 2017, I lecture at Endeavour College of Natural Health (ECNH) Sydney campus. My primary teaching areas are, TCM terminology, Chinese herbal medicine and Chinese herbal formulas.

 

Since 2016, I start my PhD journal of Chinese Medicine Diagnosis at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS)My research focuses on Chinese medicine diagnostic and clinical thinking. I am familiar with quantitative, qualitative and mixed research methods in Chinese Medicine research.
