Dr Simon Altman

Acupuncturist MELBOURNE LOCATION

Simon has a Bachelor of Health Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine (Acupuncture & Moxibustion) and is a registered teacher which includes a current Working with Children Check.

I believe that through blending the ancient wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine with a more modern approach we can look at each person holistically as a unique individual and treat them at a deeper level by incorporating the mind, body spirit and emotions.

I am a registered acupuncturist and Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner, completing a Bachelor of Health Science specialising in Traditional Chinese Medicine: Acupuncture and Moxibustion in 2001 (with honours) including clinic internships at the Shenyang and Dalian hospitals of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China with a focus on their musculo-skeletal, stroke and paediatrics wards.

I have a passion for treating and would love to help you with:

  • Any pain or injuries.
  • Acupuncture for babies and children, both needle-less and gentle needling.
  • Fertility, hormone balances and men’s health.
  • Inductions and IVF Transfer support.
  • Stress, sleep and emotional wellbeing.
  • Burnout and fatigue.
  • Esoteric Acupuncture and tarot.

I have an interest and passion for working with children and young adults to restore balance and vitality to their health and have completed further study and certification in both needle-less children’s acupuncture (Shonishin) and gentle paediatric needling (Children’s Acupuncture). As well as practicing Traditional Chinese Medicine, I am a Primary School teacher and have spent almost two decades teaching and working with primary aged children.  This has allowed me to work with a wide range of personalities and has fostered a gentle and caring rapport with children of all ages.

I have also studied advanced certificates in the meridian style acupuncture of Dr Tan’s “Balance method” and completed all levels of Esoteric Acupuncture training with its creator Mikio Sankey.

Balance method acupuncture is excellent to help rapidly relieve pain anywhere around the body.  This technique uses specific acupuncture points away from the affected area, usually on your arms or legs, to influence the part of your body experiencing the discomfort and allowing it to heal.

Esoteric Acupuncture integrates traditional acupuncture points with ancient wisdom, the Kabalistic tree of life and sacred geometry to align or balance chakras to improve your overall health, emotional wellbeing and life purpose.  Esoteric Acupuncture focuses on the finer spiritual energy fields of the body correcting imbalances at a higher level.
