Rose’s passion for Chinese medicine grew out of a burning curiosity about the nature of true health, and a desire to understand the fundamental imbalances at the root of disease. This prompted her, on an impulse, to throw herself into the study of Chinese Medicine – a decision she has never regretted!
Rose Anscombe is a graduate of the Southern School of Natural Therapies and holds a Bachelor of Health Science/Bachelor of Chinese Medicine. She also holds a diploma of Canonical Chinese Medicine issued by the Institute of Classics in East Asian Medicine (ICEAM) and continues to develop her skills in ancient Chinese herbalism. Rose’s experience includes community work in drug and alcohol rehabilitation and she has a special interest in psycho-emotional disorders. In addition, Rose has studied acupuncture in pregnancy and childbirth with Debra Betts, a well-known New Zealand acupuncturist, nurse and midwife.
Rose treats a broad spectrum of illness including colds and flu, lingering pathogens (often described as “I’ve never been right since….”), hormonal imbalances, gastro-intestinal disorders, acne, eczema and other skin conditions, emotional conditions including depression and anxiety, insomnia, gynaecological disorders, migraines and fatigue-related conditions.
Rose is a member of the growing Insight Meditation community in Melbourne, and Buddhist principles, most importantly metta (loving-kindness), enhance her practice.
She is registered with all major health funds and her patients are eligible for private insurance rebates on consultations.
Rose is currently on maternity leave.
