Adam Hjort holds a bachelor degree of Health Science in Acupuncture and is a registered practitioner with the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia. He is also a member of Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA).
Adam has been practicing acupuncture since 2010. During his first few years of practice he established the Traditional Acupuncture Clinic. For many years the clinic was situated in Arundel, however in November 2017 the clinic moved to Ashmore where it currently operates from Gold Coast Office Park. Due to Adam’s passion for Traditional East Asian Medicine the clinic has been
devoted to providing quality treatments using acupuncture, moxibustion, massage and herbal granules.
Adam’s enthusiasm to seek comprehensive training in acupuncture began in 2005. He enrolled in a bachelor of health science (acupuncture) and soon after began an apprenticeship with a local practitioner. He attended these clinical apprenticeships every week in addition to his college tuition. Apprenticeship-based training, although not required in Australia, has been the traditional standard of schooling for centuries throughout Asia. This tuition centred Adam’s education on interacting with patients and developing treatment skills. In total, Adam spent over six years with three different mentors. Although all of his teachers had their own unique practices, each apprenticed in, or was highly influenced by the Japanese traditions of acupuncture. On several occasions, Adam has travelled to Japan to further research what he had learned in Australia. During these trips he attended seminars and visited the clinics of the practitioners who influenced his own mentors.
Adam’s mission is to provide professional Traditional East Asian Medicine services to every patient who comes through his door. He strives to be attentive to each individual, and has a desire to see all receive compassionate care and positive outcomes.
