Dr Trudy Matthews – Chinese Medicine
Trudy Matthews established Scarborough Traditional Acupuncture Clinic in 1991. The Principal practitioner, Trudy Matthews, began her career in healing in Sydney where she studied to become a Registered Nurse. She was drawn to other methods of healing through her own journey of healing and personal growth, and was fortunate to be living in Perth when Edith Cowan University created a Post Graduate course in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. Trudy graduated from this course in 1991 after travelling to China to complete her internship at the Guanghou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Trudy is passionate and committed to her practice and after two decades is still humbled and inspired by the profound change and positive outcomes Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine creates for her clients.
