Therese's Story

A lifetime of study

With a family background in Chinese Medicine (CM) Therese Poon has been raised to be familiar with philosophies of Daoism, Buddhism and spiritual development. Her father, Warwick Poon, has run a busy Melbourne based CM Clinic for more than 30 years and from 8 years of age Therese developed an interest in CM whilst spending time there.


In 2005 she graduated from Victoria University with a Bachelor of Health Science in Chinese Medicine, specialising in Acupuncture. Soon after graduation, Therese moved to Beijing, China to continue her studies on a one-to-one basis with Professor Zhang ShiXiong, a renowned Doctor of Chinese Medicine at the Beijing MeiTan General Hospital. She also took the opportunity to learn from several other CM doctors during her twelve month stay.


In 2007 Therese began a three-year apprenticeship with CM Doctor and Qigong Master, Dr. Bisong Guo. Travelling extensively throughout Australia, China, and Europe she studied the arts of Internal Alchemy, Medical Qigong, Chinese Tea Ceremony and Daoist Well-being.


For over 10 years Therese was based in Scotland near the long standing Eco-Community the Findhorn Foundation. With the endorsement of her Qigong teacher, Therese is has been teaching introductory levels of medical Qigong by way of weekly classes, weekend workshops, residential retreats and individualized private lessons. In addition to this, Therese offered acupuncture treatments in Forres and Inverness and taught Chinese tea ceremonies throughout the UK.


Since October 2018 Therese has moved home to Melbourne, Australia and offers Acupuncture, Cupping, Meridian Massage and Qigong tuition. She has also continued her studies doing a part time Postgraduate Oncology Acupuncture Training Program at Mater Hospital, North Sydney with Associate Prof Byeong Oh, learning about integrative oncology research and how to support patients during their ongoing cancer care.
