Julia Oh

Julia is a bright and caring Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner who specialises in Women’s Health and Infertility (both male and female). With her clinical and professional experience built up over the years, she also treats a wide range of conditions such as musculoskeletal, digestive and stress-related disorders.

She completed her study of Traditional Chinese Medicine at the University of Technology, Sydney with high distinctions. She is now undertaking her Masters degree in the field of Oncology, to study how acupuncture can be utilised for the symptom management of cancer patients and improve their quality of life.

Julia is a firm believer that all symptoms of the body are related in some way, and so she likes to comb through and ask about several areas (that may initially seem unrelated) of the patient’s health in order to provide a truly holistic and therapeutically effective treatment. She welcomes patients’ questions regarding their health and takes the time to explain, which is the reason why she also provides 1 hour follow-up treatment sessions for patients who would like the extra time for extensive consultation and treatment.

Her effervescent and compassionate personality makes her very approachable and she looks forward to assisting you and your health with her skills and knowledge.
