About Us

SUN MED FOUNDER SHANE GREGORY

Shane Gregory has been in Clinical Practice since 2006. His passion for the body was discovered after a long bout with mental health issues that left him disheartened with the standard care approach. Going about it the hard way Shane started researching himself healthy living by first of all studying the fitness industry and becoming a personal trainer. Shane quickly graduated onto remedial bodywork, where he was introduced to the Asian bodywork systems like Shiatsu and Tui Na and found his true passion in the Chinese Meridian Theory.

 

This led to Shane meeting Jost Sauer, a practitioner with over 30 years experience, whom he both mentored under and worked under for over 10 years. It was Jost Who suggested Shane study Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine.

 

After completing a Bachelors Degree in Acupuncture, Shane furthered his study in Acupuncture doing a post graduate course in Traditional Japanese Acupuncture, a much gentler form of needling. During this time Shane was able to mentor under some greatly experienced practitioners of 30+ years on the Gold Coast.

 

2017 – 2019 Shane furthered his education again by completing a Masters degree in Chinese Herbal Medicine, where again he was able to be mentored by a practitioner of 30+ years experience.

 

Shane believes it is imperative that a practitioner must practice what they preach and has a daily practice of Qi Gong, Tai Ji (Tai Chi) and Mediation. Travelling annually to China to train with Chen Family lineage of Tai Chi, he is constantly trying to learn more. Currently he is completing a post graduate course in Kampo (Japanese Herbal Medicine).
