Chinese Medicine promotes a long and healthy life
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic medical system used to assess, diagnose and treat diseases and health conditions. TCM combines modern medical knowledge with ancient wisdom developed over millennia. Beginning over 4000 years ago, TCM is beneficial for a wide range of conditions such as pain, stress, anxiety and depression, insomnia, chronic fatigue, digestive disorders, soft tissue injuries, immune problems, migraines, heart diseases , women’s health problems (including infertility, PMS and menopause). TCM practitioners employ a range of methods to analyse and treat each patient, including pulse and tongue diagnosis, acupuncture, herbal formulas, moxibustion and cupping.
Long Health Care Clinic is owned and operated by Dr Haolong (Robert) Zhao and Dr Yun (Sophie) Shen, both very experienced Chinese medicine doctors. Dr Robert Zhao PhD has over 20 years experience practicing in Chinese hospitals, receiving his PhD in Shanghai in 2002, before continuing his work here in Perth. Dr Robert’s deep knowledge allows him to help people with acute/chronic pain, stress, anxiety and depression, male and female infertility, sleeping problems, gastrointestinal conditions, immune system disorders, heart diseases and other general health disorders. In addition to running the clinic, Dr Robert teaches Chinese medicine at Endeavour College of Natural Health. He is a professional member of the Australian Traditional Medicine Society (ATMS), and a registered Chinese Medicine practitioner with AHPRA (Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency).
Another practitioner, Dr Sophie Shen also holds her PhD in TCM and has over 20 years of clinical practice and teaching experience. Dr Shen has vast experience in women’s health problems, especially with infertility, IVF support, irregular periods, PCOS, PMS and menopause. Dr Sophie is also very good with endocrine disorders, digestive health, skin issues, depression & insomnia, pain management and children’s health problems. Like Dr Robert, Dr Sophie is a professional member of ATMS and a registered Chinese Medicine practitioner with AHPRA, plus she is registered with the Australian Acupuncture Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA).
“While TCM is proven to help a wide range of health issues, it’s especially effective for improving fertility. In fact, a recent study from Homerton University Hospital in the UK indicates that acupuncture doubles your chances of falling pregnant through IVF,” said Dr Sophie.
