Traditional Medicine Practitioner
Tracy Hickling has been a traditional medicine practitioner for over 28 years including Chinese medicine and Naturopathy, with the focus on Classical CM. Tracy is a qigong master and martial arts/tai ji chuanpractitioner/instructor. Clinically Tracy likes to focus on pathologies that are difficult to diagnose and treat, using a comprehensive method that includes acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition, diet, life-style and emotions.
I believe an important factor for declining health in modern society is the loss of traditional knowledge that provides a framework for living balanced lives. Importantly, the inability to choose from the conflicting volume of information regarding health inhibits individuals from making positive choices. I am passionate about helping people gain the knowledge that is required to make positive changes to physical, emotional, and or spiritual well-being. My approach is comprehensive, reviewing everything that has contributed in a negative or positive way to health and offering treatment and advice to make improvements. I believe it is important that individuals develop ‘self-sustaining lifestyles’, becoming less dependant on practitioners. I work from a western and eastern perspective, combining the latest science with ancient knowledge.
