before it happens
My name is Hong Gu, and I’m a qualified and accredited Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioner. If you’d told me 15 years ago that I’d be writing that sentence, I’d have laughed!
Growing up, I was aware of acupuncture and herbal treatments, but because western medicine was most people’s first point of call, I didn’t really believe they could be used to make people well. The turning point came when my mother became ill and I saw just how effective the TCM approach could be. My life changed there and then. I started studying TCM and was amazed at how successful these ancient treatments were at alleviating and healing a whole range of physical and mental conditions.
Today, through Hong Gu Acupunture & Natural Therapies clinic in Sydney’s inner west, I continue to see just how effective these treatments are. I’m passionate about my work, and I love helping my patients restore their bodies and minds to a natural state of wellbeing.
Many of my patients are referred to me by their GP, their physiotherapist, their psychologists or naturopath. Often, they’re at their wits end, having suffered chronic health problems for years on end with no answers, and no relief. I understand how frustrating, debilitating and painful chronic illness can be – whether it’s emotional or physical. This means I will do whatever it takes to help you on your journey to good health.
I’m a very determined person. I will not give up until you have answers and I will not give up until your body is more balanced – mentally and physically.
Despite, or perhaps because of, my determination, I will never push you down a treatment path that doesn’t feel right to you. I use a gentle approach and I’m guided by you.
