Kaiyan officially began her TCM studies at Guangzhou University of TCM in 1993, one of the 5 elite TCM Universities in China, where she completed her Bachelor’s, Master’s and Ph.D. degree for her research in Asthma management. From 1998 she was offered a position to work at the affiliated hospital of Guangzhou University of TCM. With 10 years of combined practice in Chinese and Western Medicine, Kaiyan utilizes her comprehensive understanding in both medical approaches to maximize treatment outcomes.
During the 2003 SARS pandemic, Kaiyan devoted herself to work at the frontline in Southern China and was honored the title of “SARS Battling Hero” by the state government.
After immigrating to Australia she continued her practice while also lecturing at Southern School of Natural Therapy and Endeavour College of Natural Health, before introducing Healing Pond Health Centre in 2015.
Kaiyan has attained a renowned reputation across Victoria for her holistic approach and outstanding patient care. By looking at the fundamental causes of health concerns, a treatment plan can be tailored for the most optimistic prognosis. Along with TCM treatments, her well-rounded strategy also entails dietary, exercise and other lifestyle recommendations.
For the past few years, Kaiyan has also founded various TCM workshops including: Food is your medicine, Fengshui and Health seminar series, “Glow from within” (Cosmetic Guashua), Guasha vs Hay-fever, etc. In these workshops, she dissects TCM theories into simple concepts through both an interactive and a “hands-on” session.
Debby’s ultimate goal in practice for her clients is in preventative care where maintaining good health and wellbeing means people will be less susceptible to illness, and their picture of health is intertwined into the fabric of their being.
Treatments encompass not only Traditional Chinese Medicine (acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion, Chinese Herbal medicinal pills/powders) but also lifestyle advice, exercise, and diet; integrating the best of both Eastern and Western medicine for optimum health.
