The Practitioner

Darryl Thompson is a practitioner of Japanese Meridian Therapy Acupuncture, a Chinese Herbalist, and Shiatsu therapist. After graduating from the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine he undertook a three and a half year cadetship with Dr Katsuhiko Okuma, studying Japanese Meridian Therapy acupuncture and learning advanced needling and moxibustion techniques. Prior
to embarking on his study of oriental medicine Darryl ran a successful graphic design business focusing on corporate communications and package design. He was inspired to make this dramatic career change in 1989 while in China studying martial arts and Chi Gong at the Shoalin Temple. After falling seriously ill he received herbal and Chi Gong treatment by the temple Doctor and the success of this was the catalyst for change. Darryl established Jin Shin Clinic in 2002.

Darryl is registered with the Chinese Medicine Registration Board of Victoria and is a member of the Federation of Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture Societies of Australia.
