Nicolette Truscott gained her qualifications at Melbourne’s RMIT and holds a double degree in Chinese Medicine and Human Biology with distinctions. She holds an additional degree in behavioural science from La Trobe University.
Nicolette has previously worked in the mental health field. This experience highlighted for her the need for integrative and holistic approaches to health and wellbeing and this, together with her own personal success, inspired her journey into Traditional Chinese Medicine.
She values empathy, understanding and compassion and brings this warmth into her treatments. She believes in the importance of attention not just to the physical body, but also the emotional, mental, social and spiritual aspects of health and wellbeing. She takes a special interest in mental health, digestive and women’s health issues.
She has completed a clinical internship in Nanjing Provincial Hospital of Chinese Medicine China, learning from many experienced doctors which has given her a deeper understanding of the roots of this medicine, the integration of Chinese medicine with western approaches and a solid foundation for a lifetime of work.
Nicolette holds current registration in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and is a member of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA) and Federation of Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture Societies of Australia Ltd (FCMA).
