Jan Hilbert – Reg. Acupuncturist BHSc Acu, AACMA, AHPRA

Jan studied Chinese medicine at the University of Technology in Sydney. After graduating in 2000 with a degree in acupuncture, Jan then undertook further studies in Germany, completing the German Heilpraktiker license in 2002.

With over 20 years of clinical experience Jan has extensive knowledge of the treatment of a large range of health disorders. Health and the causes of illness have fascinated Jan from his early youth. He has been investigating the connections of body and mind and illness for many years. Further studies of the fine techniques of Japanese acupuncture have given him additional skills and tools to efficiently treat many health conditions.

Jan has been training in the internal martial arts systems of Qi Gong, Xing Yi and Ba Gua for the past 16 years. He understands the practice of this internal work to be fundamental to his practice of acupuncture. Only in the deep internal space can a practitioner clearly observe the pulses and hear and feel what is at the heart of a patient’s being. If desired Jan can teach specific health exercises for patients to practice at home.

Jan is a registered acupuncturist under the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), and a member of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA). He is a co-founder of the Chinese Medicine Centre in East Fremantle where he has been practicing for the past 16 years.
