Meet Peter Haxell
Peter is a registered practitioner of Chinese Medicine (AHPRA, ATMS), having graduated from the Southern School of Natural Therapies, Fitzroy in 2015 with a Bachelor of Health Science: Chinese Medicine. Peter uses classical herbal formulas and distal acupuncture in his clinic practice. The aim of this style of medicine is to restore or maintain the proper functioning of the body, predominantly by regulating the digestive system as well as the flow of blood, fluids and gases such as oxygen throughout the body. Peter is passionate about educating others about the common sense approach to health and wellbeing advocated by chinese medicine so that they can overcome their individual health challenges.
Peter was born with blocked ureters and required corrective surgery at 7 months old, and subsequently suffered from frequent infections and illness, as well as food intolerances throughout his childhood. This left him with a profound desire to devote his life to helping others with their health, and a deep empathy and understanding for those suffering from chronic illness. Herbal medicine, acupressure and other natural medicines helped him on his own healing journey and led to him studying Chinese medicine in order to pursue his calling. Peter currently runs his own practice in Gippsland, Victoria as well as working in another clinic in Healesville, Victoria.
