Dr Kaylin Cheng (Chinese Medicine)
Kaylin is a caring practitioner who is passionate about helping people balance their mind and body to maintain optimum health. This is because she strongly believes in the fundamental Chinese Medicine concept of “the best treatment of disease is prevention”. She graduated with a double degree in Bachelor of Health Science/Applied Science (Chinese Medicine) at RMIT University and is an accredited Chinese Medicine Herbalist and Acupuncture practitioner in Australia.
She has always been fascinated with herbal medicine and its use in everyday Chinese cooking from a young age. It was not until years later she learned that her grandfather and great-grandparents were skilled in making herbal balms and tinctures to treat acute injuries in their hometown. It must have been predestined for her to embark on this journey as a Chinese Medicine practitioner to explore and comprehend the teachings left behind by ancient physicians.
Kaylin has completed extensive clinical training in chronic pain, acupuncture and internal medicine at Jiangsu Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China, Tzu Chi Hospitals (Taipei and Kuanshan) and China Medical University Hospital in Taiwan. Furthermore, she had the honour to be mentored in Taiwan by Dr. Yi Ying Shen, master of Classical School of Acupuncture. During her training she learnt classic concepts of “visceral relationship and treatment”, “five gates and ten changes" method from the Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Medicine, specialised acupoint bloodletting techniques, and meridian musculature palpitation and therapy. Kaylin also utilises Master Tung's acupuncture system in the treatment of chronic pain.
In her spare time, she focuses on the in-depth study of classic medical texts and its significance in modern day Chinese Medicine treatments. She is continuously refining and mastering her clinical skills to provide the best care for her clients.
Kaylin is fluent in English, Mandarin and Hokkien.
