Chris Eddy, Dr of Chinese Medicine
BAppSc (HB & TCM)
Chris graduated from RMIT University, Melbourne and Nanjing Chinese Medicine University, China in 2003.
Chris has a special interest in the treatment of Male & Female Urological problems. 10 years ago by chance, patients with vulvodynia started filling up Chris’s practice. Many Dr’s have never even heard of the condition, but it has been something Chris has dedicated a large portion of his career to finding the best solutions for each individual patient. Likewise, men with their own pelvic issues such as prostadynia and testicular pain have had great relief from acupuncture and herbal medicine.
Chris is also clinical supervisor at RMIT University and spends half his time teaching Chinese medicine students the skills he has gained.
It is Chris’s patient, professional and gentle personality that makes him very approachable and dedicated to his patients health.
