REGISTERED CHINESE MEDICINE PRACTITIONER, ACUPUNCTURIST, TRANSFORMATION COACH, FEMINIST & CAT LOVER.
My name is Rachel Berners and I am a 44 year young, Queer, Cat loving Feminist and Acupuncturist.
After almost 20 years of practicing Acupuncture in various locations and clinics across Melbourne, I have finally found a space to call home at 363B Lygon St in Brunswick East. As a Brunswick East resident for over 10 years, I am inspired to connect with and serve my local community.
My inspired mission is to facilitate my clients innate capacity for healing and self regulation. The focus within Chinese Medicine is to achieve inner balance by bringing the Yin Yang polarities into synchronization. I help people to identify their unique patterns of disharmony and how these disharmonies are causing them to lose power. I coach my clients on how to build new patterns, implement positive change and set up self-care strategies that help them to regain confidence and resilience.
I have always been fascinated and intrigued by the body-mind connection. After completing my first Bachelor of Applied Science in Human Biology at RMIT University in Melbourne, I became interested in eastern healing methods and mysticism and went on to complete a second Bachelor degree in Chinese Medicine. I was lucky enough to intern at the JiangSu Provincial Hospital of Chinese Medicine in Nanjing, China for one year in 2002.
I have also had the honour of training under Dr Mikio Sankey (founder of Esoteric Acupuncture, Los Angeles, CA) for a number of years. Mikios work was a transformational turning point, personally and professionally, deepening my understanding of the energetics of healing and opening my heart more fully to life.
My interest in human transformation has led me to studying with Landmark Education, Dr Joe Dispenza (meditation teacher and author) and Dr John Demartini (human behaviour specialist). All of these journeys have provided me with a rich tapestry of wisdom and knowledge that I incorporate into my clinical practice. I am currently a trained Demartini Method facilitator, and provide private coaching alongside my clinical practice.
I am a deeply committed and intuitive practitioner. I provide a safe, non-judgemental space for my clients to feel fully seen and heard as who they really are. I sometimes swear, share A LOT of my own stories, laugh lots and keep it pretty real.
As an out and proud LGBTQ person, I am passionate in supporting my local LGBTQ family.
I am a CMBA registered practitioner of Chinese Medicine. I hold current registration with the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association. I am currently registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.
