Dr Scott Baker BHSc (Acu)
Acupuncturist & Doctor of Chinese Medicine
About Dr Scott Baker - Burleigh Waters Acupuncturist
Scott is a local who grew up in the mountains on the edge of the Tweed Valley before moving closer to the beach as a teenager.
A life-long fascination with martial arts, meditation and healing lead him to study Chinese medicine after a corporate career in Brisbane and return to the Gold Coast to set up an Acupuncture clinic in Burleigh Waters.
He is continually furthering his knowledge of the body’s remarkable ability to heal itself and is a constant student of the work of pioneers in this area such as Wim Hof (The Ice Man), Dr Joe Dispenza, Gregg Braden and Dr Bruce Lipton.
As an Acupuncturist Dr Baker is a dedicated Balance Method practitioner applying the teachings of past masters Dr Richard (Teh-Fu) Tan and also Master Tung who both revolutionised modern Acupuncture by teaching the most effective treatment strategies and points ever known.
He has been lucky enough to learn from some of the best Balance Method Acupuncture practitioners locally and internationally, mentors who consistently deliver highly effective treatment results for pain and disease in very busy clinical environments.
Through wide-ranging observation, critical questioning and research Scott has learnt the true physiological basis of Acupuncture. He has witnessed first hand how effectively and powerfully it can deliver immediate pain reduction, improve internal disease and improve quality of life for patients in conjunction with Western Medicine and as a stand alone treatment.
Dr Baker applies a combination of Acupuncture, pulse diagnosis, Chinese herbal medicine and Chinese dietary advice in clinical practice. He also encourages patients to take an interest in their own powerful ability to improve their health.
