Daniel Deng is from a Traditional Chinese Medicine family, where his father and grandfather were both Chinese Medicine practitioners. He heard and saw lots of stories about helping people with Chinese Medicine as he was growing up, so from a young age, he thought to himself that he would also help people. So he decided to be a doctor when he was just in high school.
He was enrolled and studied Chinese Medicine in Guangzhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 1982, and was employed as an assistant lecturer in Acupuncture department of the same university when he graduated in 1987, due to his high grades. Through the years, he has learned and studied different skills and techniques from all the professors and experts to help develop his own specialty.
Daniel Deng has been practicing Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine in both China and Australia for nearly 30 years. Daniel lectures at UWS, SITCM and conducts regular master classes, seminars and workshops throughout Australia.
His vast clinical experience, interest in classical theories and 35 year practice of Qi Gong and Dao philosophy all contribute to his innovative, clinically effective techniques, such as Chi Acupuncture and ‘Back to the Base’ series. He strives to ensure all participants of his classes and workshops continue to advance their skills to gain the best possible clinical results.
Daniel was awarded ‘Best Paper on Clinical Practice’ at the AACMA Sydney 2008 Conference and was an invited speaker at the WFAS 2004 6th and 2014 8th World conference on Acupuncture.
Advanced Diploma of Traditional Chinese Medicine
Tanya McMahon is a Registered Acupuncturist and Herbal Medicine Practitioner. Tanya has an Advanced Diploma of Traditional Chinese Medicine and is a member of AACMA and is AHPRA registered.
Tanya is a devoted and passionate TCM practitioner who has refined her skills over the last 10 years of practise of acupuncture and herbs. In 1999 Tanya was the Editor of a nationally circulated monthly health magazine. For the last 7 years Tanya has been dividing her time between the Red Orchid Wellness clinic at Nowra and Daniel Deng and Associates at Cronulla.
Tanya incorporates two styles of advanced acupuncture in her practise. The Deng Style Balance Method for Acupuncture, is a unique microsystem pulse based methodthat redistributes the qi when needling certain points in upper/lower, back/front, internal/external body as determined by the pulse diagnosis. The pulse is continually checked to assess the effectiveness of the treatment. This method also looks at body evidence to track pathologies along the channels. The different parts of this method allow a good understanding of what is happening in the body from a Chinese Medicine perspective, with a very effective treatment protocol to bring change in the health of the patient.The Tan Wu Bian Balance Method style which has evolved for Tanya over the last 8 years also works on the premise that a minimal number of distal points can be used along associated channels (away from the pain) to avoid aggravating the local problem. Particularly in acute pain conditions, but also in any presenting pathology, the number of treatments required to bring the body back into harmony can be reduced using the Balance Method. Where required Tanya uses patent herbal medicines or dispenses individual granule formulas to support the acupuncture treatment. Nutritional advice and exercises or points to self massage may be given according to the nature of the condition.
Tanya has an Advanced Diploma of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and graduated with the Sun Ten special award for Study Excellence. Tanya also has a Diploma in Bodywork Therapy, Aromatherapy, Advanced Massage and Sports Injuries.
