Dr. Tanya Graham (TCM)
Dr. Tanya Graham (TCM) is an AHPRA-Registered Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbal Medicine practitioner who completed a Bachelor of Health Science at Griffith University and a Bachelor of Applied Science (Chinese Medicine) from RMIT. She is a member of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association.
Whilst enjoying the seven months of her internship in Nanjing China in 2002, Tanya developed an interest in using acupuncture and herbs for the treatment of gynaecological problems and specifically for IVF assistance. She returned to China in 2012 to further study ‘unexplained infertility’ and now focuses on evidence based treatments for increasing blood flow to the uterine/ovarian artery as it may assist on increasing hormones, medication, oxygen and nutrients to the growing follicles as well as the endometrial lining.
Tanya’s interests in the reproductive medicine field also involve genetics which she briefly studied in her first university degree and hopes to enroll in further studies in this exciting field once time permits as she is a busy mother of three children.
“The correlation between lifestyle choices and its effect on health (as we very well know in TCM) is now being researched and understood in western medicine and the future of this science, called Epigenetics, will be a fascinating one to watch.”
Tanya utilises a number of methods in her treatments including acupuncture, auricular-acupuncture, Tui Na (Chinese remedial massage), Chinese herbal medicine and dietary & lifestyle advice.
Regular hours for Dr Tanya are: Tuesdays 10:30am – 2:30pm and Thursdays 10:30am – 4pm.
