“I strive to give people hope, nourish their self-confidence, and create a safe space for them to heal.”

Andrew trained in London as a Registered Nurse and has worked in Sexual Health, HIV and research (tropical diseases). His publications include academic papers (on Chinese medicine, ethics, nursing, etc), textbooks, fiction and poetry. He has also presented at international conferences on philosophy and Chinese Medicine. Andrew is fluent in English and Mandarin.

He is the senior lecturer administering the Chinese Medicine bachelor programme at the Endeavour College of Natural Health (Sydney) and a sessional lecturer at the Western Sydney University, teaching Chinese Medicine, culture & diversity and communication in health.

Chinese Medicine and Herbalism

Acupuncture is just one well known technique in a whole medical paradigm that is as ancient as human civilisation. Its relation to the energy flows of the body, or ‘qi’, is respected by the medical profession worldwide. Andrew Koh’s life passion is tapping quietly but potently into this flow to answer your body’s disharmonies, however fleeting or persistent, and bring you closer to the healthiest that you can be.
