Melbourne Chiropractors & Massage Therapists

Dr. Nathan Burns

Doctor Nathan Burns has more than ten years of clinical practice experience. Nathan graduated from the excellent Traditional Chinese Medicine course offered at Victoria University of Technology and has a passion for helping people regain control of their lives.

Nathan’s motto is to “Own Life!” This can be interpreted in many ways, however the central idea is that his clients become empowered to fulfil their potential.

This can be achieved through the elimination of pain – physical, emotional or both.

Physical and emotional pain

In Nathan’s experience the first step towards a dynamic life is the elimination of physical pain. Only then can an individual begin to resolve the emotional aspects of their lives. Physical pain can result in constant stress and anger.

Nathan specialises in treating the physical and emotional aspects at the same time. This is a corner stone of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and something that was refined in Nathan’s treatments during a year -long study trip to Xian, China.

Back pain and sciatica

Back pain and especially the resolution and management of sciatica symptoms is an area where Nathan can be considered an expert. He has helped many people to get their lives back through the elimination of debilitating numbness, burning, tingling and other stressful sensations. Usually three treatments is enough to see a significant improvement.

Neck and shoulder pain

Similarly, neck and shoulder problems can also cause acute and chronic pain and stress. Keyboard posture is a major culprit in this epidemic of muscle tightness and pain. A few carefully placed acupuncture needles is usually all that is required to feel considerable relief. Posture and exercise form part of an ongoing management strategy to help people enjoy their lives more fully.

Headaches and migraines

Headaches and migraines usually have a muscular component. Nathan will identify and treat muscle tightness and spasm, which can have a profound effect on reducing and eliminating the frequency and severity of painful episodes.

Other conditions

Chinese Medicine can treat a vast array of conditions. Along with the common ailments described above, Nathan also helps people with insomnia, menopause and menstruation, gastro-intestinal issues, post-stroke problems, fertility and IVF support, weight loss and bloating, and many other musculo- skeletal conditions.

Nathan is a nationally registered Chinese Medicine Professional. He works out of Wellbeing at 365 Burwood Road Hawthorn in Victoria, and is a member of a dynamic wellness team that utilises a strong combination of modalities and expertise to ensure people can take control and OWN LIFE!
