Jenny is an accomplished and experienced Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner. Having Recently finished work at her busy Adelaide practice we are now lucky to have one of very few TCMs that are skilled at acupuncture and also Chinese herbal medicine dispensing her own herb on site.
Jenny has a huge patient base in Adelaide and still goes back for one week every month to lead her Adelaide Chinese Medicine Practice in decision making and to see the most difficult patient cases and to edu-cate the other practitioners there. Jenny has been a TCM board mem-ber for many years in order to guide the development of TCM in Australia. In Traditional Chinese Medicine the treatment is tailored to the patient’s needs based on their individual constitution and the real skill lies in patient assessment and matching treatments to needs as treat-ments only work if they fit. In TCM the treatment is not for the illness, the treatment is actually for the patient.
