Peter Loupelis is fully qualified in both Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine and registered to practice both by the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia, a part of AHPRA. He has pursued further studies in classical Chinese and Japanese (Kiiko Style Acupuncture) acupuncture techniques and prefers a gentle needling technique that is pain-free and more effective for treatment efficacy. As a herbalist he is influenced by classical and modern approaches, willing to incorporate the wisdom from Ayurveda (India) and modern Western approaches to his prescriptions.

Peter has a prior degree in Anthropology, Archaeology, and History, and it was through these studies that he began his study of Daoist philosophy and Tai Chi over 14 years ago. He spent a great deal of time exposed to various indigenous cultures around the world learning about their mythologies and the use of story-telling to elicit personal healing and social cohesion. He spent extensive periods of time on several Lakota-Sioux Reservations participating in community ceremonies and rituals. It was during this time – and after a serious auto-immune illness – that he turned to Chinese Medicine for both personal healing, and to pursue a career as a professional.

Peter has also contributed to professional journals and has taught Chinese Medicine History and Philosophy and other Health Science subjects at a tertiary level. He has worked in both community and private-practice settings, and was the co-founder of Nourishing Life Complementary Medicine.

In recent years, Peter has also trained in (New Code) Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Ericksonian Hypnosis having found the benefits of it personally as a form of both personal and professional development. He has trained with internationally-renowned trainers Chris and Jules Collingwood, completing the only fully-accredited NLP course on offer in Australia. He has found NLP a valuable tool in behavioural change and developing clear, well-formed goals especially for those with chronic disease and illness.

Peter’s background in Tai Ji and Qi Gong has proven an excellent tool in terms of physical fitness and building strength and flexibility, and also in terms of embodying the principles of stillness and movement inherent in Daoist philosophy. He teaches a Daoist form of Tai Ji taught to him by his Chinese Medicine practitioner and mentor as an adjunct to regular acupuncture and herbal medicine treatment.
