About

Rachel Woo headshot

Rachel Woo is an experienced Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Practitioner specialising in Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine and TCM Nutrition. With sound expertise in natural therapies as well as a Masters in Brain and Mind Sciences, Rachel employs an integrated and wholistic therapeutic approach tailored to each individual’s physical, mental and emotional well-being.

In addition to private practice, Rachel has conducted workshops in Australia, China, Malaysia, Nepal and New Zealand, teaching Acupuncture to medical staff and healthcare professionals in private and hospital settings. She has also been invited internationally to provide TCM services to several high-profile celebrities, elite athletes, and members of royal families. 

 

Rachel previously held a clinical supervising role at the Sydney Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In 2016, she volunteered with the Acupuncture Relief Project, providing free primary healthcare to rural villages in Nepal without access to medical care. Subsequently, she extended her volunteering efforts to a rural village in Malaysia, and continues to volunteer when the opportunity arises.

 

Motivated to delve deeper into the roots of TCM and the transformative aspects of internal martial arts (Taichi, Qi Gong) in enhancing self-healing and overall wellbeing, Rachel journeyed to the Wudang Mountain Range in China, the birthplace of Taichi, where she became a student of Li Shifu, the Daoist High Priest of the Five Immortals Temple. Guided by his wisdom, Rachel developed a profound connection with ancient Daoist medicine, integrating it into a more comprehensive and expansive healing practice.

 

Rachel's areas of focus are in mental health (anxiety, depression), stress management, women's health (hormonal imbalance, menstrual issues), digestive health, musculoskeletal health and chronic pain management (headaches, migraines). Aware that an imbalanced diet and state of mind are primary contributors to chronic illness, Rachel is fervently dedicated to promoting healthy eating, mindfulness, and sustainable practices.
