Acupuncture/Chinese MedicineI'm Damien Bakker and I'm a nationally registered Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioner working at Wangaratta Health and Wellbeing. I've been part of the team here for over 4 years and was fortunate to grow up in Wangaratta.
I treat a large array of conditions based on TCM's holistic theories and use a combination of Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal medicines, Chinese massage (Tuina), exercise and breathing therapy such as (Qi gong and tai chi), and diet and lifestyle advice to help maintain or return you to optimal health.
What Do I Offer?
What is Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)?TCM is a holistic system of primary health care used by millions of people around the world. Based on a theoretical framework developed over thousands of years, it is an ancient practice which has stood the test of time and maintained a place in contemporary health care.
TCM aims to restore balance and harmony to the human body when it is no longer functioning optimally due to stress, overwork, poor diet or many other factors. TCM provides effective treatment for a wide range of acute and chronic health disorders, however just as much emphasis is placed on regulating general immune function and maintaining optimal body function because we believe prevention is always better then cure.
