"I’ve been seeing Sky for over two years, for a number of different health issues. From the very first visit, she was so calm and knowledgeable that I knew I was in safe hands... She is my first port of call for any health problem, whether it be a sore throat or issues with anxiety, and I feel confident that there is nothing she doesn't have the skills to tackle. I recommend her to friends, family and colleagues all the time and have no hesitation in recommending her to you too!" - S.H. (Newtown)

Since I began seeing Sky about six weeks ago, there has been a significant improvement in my energy levels, my immunity and my general wellbeing... Sky's approach is attentive, professional, caring and supportive, and she has the skills and knowledge to untangle and treat many different health issues... Since seeing Sky, I feel like I have moved out of a health rut and am now well on the way to recovery, with a long-tern plan for managing my health and ensuring I have a great quality of life." A.M.

" [Sophie] has been a great source of advice and support for myself, my partner and now our two young children. I was immediately drawn to her warm and understanding nature. She has a lovely way of understanding that illness is more complex than the physical symptoms and applies her great knowledge of healing in a practical, personal and considered way. She really looks after her clients and has supported us through some very challenging times. I appreciate her positive approach knowing that although we all strive to be great, sometimes we just need a little extra support to get us through and that's ok! " S.W. (Newtown)

Glendon Gardner

Acupuncture & Massage Therapies - Remedial; Sports; Pregnancy; Relaxation

BHSC (TCM, DRM, Cert. Acu (Beijing))

Glendon uses a combination of TCM techniques such as acupuncture, Chinese herbs, moxibustion, auriculotherapy and cupping along with Remedial massage to treat a broad range of conditions. He has extensive experience as a Remedial massage therapist and has been practicing in physiotherapy clinics since 1998.

Glendon studied Acupuncture at the University of Technology, Sydney, and completed his clinical internship at the China-Japan Friendship Hospital in Beijing in 2004. He also currently teaches at UTS.

Client testimonials:

"My acupuncture treatment was at midday on the Saturday and straight away afterwards I felt pre-labour commence and the head move down into my pelvis... my husband burned moxa about the acu-pressure points on my toes just as Glendon had instructed. We were in labour that night, and after a quick 2 hour labour our baby boy arrived quickly and easily without any drugs" A.C. (Camperdown)

"The main reason for my acupuncture was ongoing problems with my stomach (IBS), causing my body to be sluggish in processing, and draining me of energy. The acupuncture sessions with GLendon were not only fantastic at resolving the specific problem, but could also deal with other things I had going on at the time. Sometimes I needed more energy, other times I needed help to unwind and switch off. Just an hour session would leave me refreshed, positive and ready to face anything the world threw my way." H.H. (Erskineville)
