Chinese medicine that empowers and inspires you

Restoring health & keeping wellness with Chinese medicine
I am Dr Andrea Furness and am a qualified Chinese Medicine physician registered to practice Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine with AHPRA (the national authority that regulates health practitioners.)
I have a Bachelor of Health Science, Traditional Chinese Medicine with Honours and have been an Acupuncturist since 1997 and a Chinese herbalist since 2003.
I have spent many years practicing in the central highlands town of Hepburn Springs, some years in clinical practice in Mildura, and now live and practice Chinese medicine in Daylesford and Ballarat.
I warmly invite you to use the Orientalis medicine resources posted here to enhance your health and bring discussion and questions into our health consultations.
I see my role as a support for your journey to health and wellbeing, in all stages of life transitions and the changing seasons.

The Chinese medicine approach to facial rejuvenation has a long and richly documented history dating back to 770 CE. Notably the Song and Ming dynasties advanced the application of acupuncture protocols, superior herbs and herbal masks to promote health, longevity and beauty.
Facial rejuvenation and its integration into our whole body health is an area of fascination for me. It has lead me to develop an organic botanical skin care range and a garden apothecary.

You may also come across some other things that I love to do:
Orientalis skin is my organic botanical skin product range in the shop here that I have been evolving for the past 20 years as my garden apothecary develops. These products form a corner stone in my acupuncture facial rejuvenation work.
Arya Perfume Company is my organic botanical traditional perfume venture. I have a passion for crafting perfume from traditional distilling and enfleurage. My distillery in Daylesford sits beside a spring that runs through my 1/2 acre garden apothecary attached to my Orientalis medicine clinic.
These projects evolved from my years living close to the forest, its mineral water and my medicine garden.
I have a love of natural science and plant chemistry, and work with copper alembic stills to produce hydrosol plant extracts, tinctures and traditional perfumes. My Chinese medicine work to support fertility, vitality and mental contentment for my patients is enriched by these creative ventures. Life is always rich and fascinating when we follow our curiosity!
