Three Lanterns is committed to assisting and providing opportunities for continuing professional education not only for practitioners at Three Lanterns but also for our peers within the profession.


Workshops, Seminars and Study Groups

Back in 2011 Mindful Medicine® ran an acupuncture point injection workshop at Three Lanterns primarily for acupuncturists who volunteer their time and expertise to Hands on Health Collingwood. Hands on Health Australia is a community service offering health services to people who are marginalised and unable to access health care easily. To find out more about Hands on Health go to www.handsonhealth.com.au.

Three Lanterns is the home of the Western Region Acupuncture Study Group. We meet throughout the year for various sessions which are aimed at Chinese Medicine professionals. Topics range from looking at the relationship between acupuncture and hypnosis to discussions of xie qi and the direction of movement of pathogenic qi in the body. In the past our philosophical discussions have involved an in depth look at language, metaphor and TCM diagnosis; Kidney Qi: Will, Destiny and Wisdom; and a ‘Things I’ve learned in practice’ series. This year we will be heading in a more practiical direction, running some laser acupuncture workshops as well as exploring muscle energy techniques and MPD pulse diagnosis.

New Services

We are very excited to welcome Bernadette Fitzgerald to Three Lanterns where she will provide remedial and pregnancy massage services. Bernadette comes to us with a wealth of experience working over the last 7 years at well known luxury spas such as Crown Spa in Melbourne and Endota Spa in Yarraville and Williamstown. Bernadette is absolutely passionate about massage and is also currently studying Chinese Medicine at Endeavour College in Melbourne.

We are also thrilled to have Dr Caroline Ralph join us as a Chinese Medicine Practitioner at Three Lanterns. Caroline will join Mandy, Amber and Elisabeth in providing comprehensive acupuncture and traditional chinese medicine services to our clients. We look forward to working with Caroline and are sure many of our clients will benefit from her knowledge, compassion and professional care.
