About Authentic Acupuncture

Authentic Acupuncture is located in Balmain and was founded by Brendan Meek.

Brendan has been treating people with Eastern therapies since 1998. With almost 20 years’ experience in the field, Brendan’s practice is results-driven. His clinical experience and understanding are critical to being able to produce real results for his patients.

Brendan has completed formal studies in traditional Chinese acupuncture, Chinese medicine and Chinese meridian massage. Throughout his career, he has also travelled widely throughout Asia interning at various hospitals and clinics along the way studying in Taiwan, South Korea and Indonesia.

He has a Bachelor of Health Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture from the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS). Prior to this, he obtained a Diploma in Traditional Chinese Massage from the Chi-Chinese Healing College in Sydney.

Under a traditional mentoring program with his friend and teacher, Dr Alvin Indradjaja (Xie) M.D, Brendan deepened his studies and brings to light in his clinical practice the use of highly refined techniques rarely seen since before the cultural revolution in China. Such practice involves the use of very few needles to produce the most efficient and effective outcomes possible from acupuncture.
