Dr Ben's


Dr Ben Heathcote is an AHPRA registered practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine and founder of Melbourne Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture Clinic

Over 25 years ago, I left the daily grind of a busy office environment to find a role in life in which I could benefit others. For the next three years I travelled the world learning about Asian philosophies while exploring meditation, yoga and Qi Gong. It was during this time I first experienced acupuncture and was instantly drawn to Chinese medicine, its wonderful history, philosophical basis and therapeutic approach. These aspects resonated with my core beliefs of life, healing and wellness. 

My goal in clinic is to bring together modern knowledge of anatomy, physiology and psychology and combine it with traditional understandings of human health, derived from Chinese medicine. This creates a clinical approach that is modern, accessible and beneficial to others.


I have immense gratitude that I completely enjoy what I do every single day and could not imagine doing anything else. The depth of understanding of the world around us gives Chinese medicine its foundation and still astounds me today.
