Debby Cheung

Acupuncturist & Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner 

After working full-time in the corporate world for a number of years surrounded by stress and unhealthy lifestyles, Debby found herself facing a quarter-life crisis which led her back to her cultural roots and into the world of Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

Debby is able to integrate the Eastern philosophy of TCM into a Western mindset through her personal experience of growing up in Australia and finding the balance between her Chinese culture and living in a Western world.  Debby utilises the ancient principles of TCM to remind the body of its self-healing abilities by addressing the root cause of imbalances in the body, thus providing long term benefits and not just a ‘band-aid solution’.

Debby is privileged to be able to treat at all points in a person’s life cycle – from preconception, pregnancy, labour, babies, children, adults, to the elderly.

Debby’s motivation and ultimate goal is to be a key health carer by maintaining people’s wellbeing  so they become less susceptible to illness, and more resilient both physically and most importantly mentally as well.
