About Dr. Alex

MBBS (Hons), FACNEM, GradCertAcu,
Founder of Transformational Acupuncture

When people get true healing, they actually feel peace, there’s a real physical feeling.

As a conjoint lecturer with UNSW and an RACGP accredited supervisor, I’ve been training medical students, International Medical Graduates, and General Practice Registrars for more than 20 years to help people achieve that true feeling of peace that comes with healing.

Along with that, I’ve learned a lot about the human psyche in my 40-year medical career as the Practice Principal of Northside Health (a 12-doctor medical center).

My practice has led me to additional training in nutritional and environmental medicine, counseling and cognitive behavior therapy, and together with over 300,000 patient consultations, including performing over 35,000 acupuncture treatments, I’ve witnessed firsthand the complex interrelationship between the mind, body and spirit.


I wasn’t always a teacher, but at a certain point, I realized that I couldn’t help the number of people with depression I wanted to help. I would need to clone myself! Then the realization came that if I could train enough acupuncturists in this lifetime – in the time that I have left – I could make a massive difference in this world.

It’s a mighty big goal, but it feels like that’s what I’m here to do.

To that end, I developed the Transformational Acupuncture system, which helps people manage depression, anxiety, and stress. My purpose in this lifetime is to bring my teaching skills to acupuncturists and train them in Transformational Acupuncture to gain optimal results with their clients and make their treatments more powerful, as well as to raise the awareness of these techniques with medical doctors.

Together, we can combine the physical world of medicine and acupuncture with the spiritual world, and promote a more holistic form of healing that truly transforms people.
