Dr. Jim Xing – A Highly Experienced Chinese Medicine Doctor in Melbourne
Graduating with a Bachelor Degree of TCM from the Guangzhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China, Dr. Xing has gathered over three decades of clinical practicing experience. Before migrating to Australia, he taught and conducted research at Hainan Medical University, and spent a lot of his time in the clinical practices of the hospital clinic of the university.
Currently, Dr. Xing is a registered acupuncturist and herbalist of the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia, and a fully accredited member of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association. He operates two Chinese Medicine clinics in Melbourne, located in Frankston and Murrumbeena (near Chadstone), to provide convenience and easy access to patients in different areas. Many patients from across Melbourne, and indeed other places have sought Dr. Xing’s services, owing to his high level of experience.
With a passion for Chinese medicine, Dr. Xing persistently and tirelessly spends time studying and researching historical medical theories and classics. Combining his knowledge in “I-Ching” (also known as the Book of Changes, one of the oldest Chinese classical texts), Western medicine, and his 30+ years of clinical experience, he has accumulated a good wealth of medical knowledge and clinical experience to diagnose and carry out treatment.
There’s an old Chinese saying, which goes “there are so many ways that people can get ill, yet there are so little ways that doctors know how to heal”. Dr. Xing believes that a good doctor should come with profound medical knowledge and experience in order to diagnose the condition precisely and tailor the process to the individual. Such is true in Traditional Chinese Medicine where treatment aims to balance the ‘yin & yang’ in the body, with the goal of rehabilitation to restore the body’s own functions, not just temporarily alleviating the clinical symptoms. “To improve the clinical efficacy, the only way is by assiduously reviewing medical theories and deep assessment in the clinical process”, Dr. Xing comments.
With profound medical knowledge and in-depth clinical experience, as well as a deep passion for his work, Dr. Xing often engages in medical discussions with a diverse range of well-known medical experts in China, including specialists in internal medicine, surgery, gynaecology, pediatrics, dermatology, orthopedics, ENT, ophthalmology, and oncology, in a quest to continuously strengthen and develop his knowledge on these areas.
Dr. Jim Xing is a registered Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbalist with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), and a member of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA).
