Ava Nguyen

Acupuncturist, Tui Na Massage Practitioner

Ava was first exposed to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) through her parents at a young age when she was given herbs to regulate her menstrual cycle. Throughout her life, she was always exposed to TCM as she was treated with cupping, herbs, and Gua Sha for various health complaints. This interest in TCM continued throughout her life, but her passion was really ignited when her parents became chronically ill. Acupuncture and TCM were able to offer support where Western medicine could not help and this sparked her journey to study Chinese medicine and become an acupuncturist.

Ava is now a Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and has a special interest in women’s health, digestive health, stress management, anxiety and depression, and cancer support (including chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting).

Ava has a long history of working in the medical field, being a pharmacist prior to becoming a Registered Acupuncturist. This has given her an in-depth understanding of biochemistry, pharmacology, and how conventional medicine can work alongside TCM and acupuncture to help her patients.

Ava is also an experienced Tui Na Massage practitioner. Tui Na, or Chinese Massage, works by using TCM diagnostic techniques along with deep tissue massage and other releasing techniques to help to release muscular tension and alleviate pain. You can book a 60 minute Tui Na Massage appointment, which may include some basic acupuncture, cupping, or moxibustion in your treatment.

What do you love most about being an acupuncturist?

I love being able to contribute to the catalyst of a person creating improvements so they can be their healthiest and highest selves.

It all starts with gaining further knowledge and understanding about your body. Traditional Chinese Medicine is all about how your body communicates with you through subtle symptoms the body presents with. I love sharing my knowledge about the subtle symptoms presenting to each individual and helping each person become more aware of their body. As Eckhart Tolle wisely said, “Awareness is the greatest agent for change.”

How do you want to leave your clients feeling when they leave the room?

After leaving a room with me I want to ensure that they have gained further awareness and understanding about their health, but to also then feel empowered that there are things they can do to make improvements while being supported through this process. I also want to make sure they come out feeling more relaxed leaving the room than when they came into the room.

What is something that you do for fun?

Cooking a delicious meal in the kitchen with loved ones while boogy-ing to some good music is my absolute favourite thing to do. I also like to sew, though I am not super great at it, it still brings me joy. Listening to podcasts and reading self-improvement books is also something I enjoy doing.
