Introduction

Traditional Chinese Medicine is a set of customs that dates back thousands of years to pre-dynastic times. It embodies diverse practices such as acupuncture, massage, exercise, herbs and dietary advice, all in the service of influencing dynamic processes, channels and meridians of the body’s vital energy (aka qi).

It should be emphasised that scientific investigation has not discovered any histological or physiological evidence for concepts such as qi.

At the bottom of this profile are brief details of a number of the experts that Expert Experts represents. Call our office to discuss your requirements and to obtain a recommendation that suits your needs and budget.

Expertise in Action

There are many risks involved with Traditional Chinese Medicine, such as allergic reaction to herbs and contracting infections when undergoing acupuncture. Experts in Traditional Chinese Medicine may be asked to give opinions about practitioners that may have breached the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia’s codes and guidelines with respect to advertising, conduct, continuing professional development, the safe practice of herbal medicine, infection prevention and control guidelines for acupuncture, and patient record keeping and confidentiality.

Sample Reports

Cost

The overall cost of expert opinion depends on the services required. Some of the key factors that affect the cost of advice include:

  • The need for a view or inspection of a location
  • The quantity of documentary material to be reviewed
  • Whether there are reports of other experts to be reviewed and commented on in detail
  • Whether there is a need for conferences with the expert either in person or by telephone/Skype
