Burleigh Heads Acupuncture Clinic Gold Coast

Gold Coast Acupuncture Clinic in Burleigh

Studio Qi Acupuncture clinic located in Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast was created by husband and wife team Brad and Tabitha Fennell in 2000.

With a move to the Gold Coast and both of us discovering acupuncture from our own unique experiences, we found a vision to authentically deliver acupuncture in a way that would change lives.

When designing what it was we wanted to achieve we looked at one of the foundational ideas in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM); that of Qi, pronounced 'chee', roughly translates to 'energy'. Qi really is its own concept, it communicates how you feel both physically, emotionally and how your energy is. So we thought 'a studio of energy' and now Studio Qi continues to evolve as a clinic focused on following, unfolding and discovering the best ways to work with you.

As Studio Qi flourished we began to treat a large array of issues and developed a unique system we call Acufacilitation. This is a technique that you will find nowhere else that incorporates theories and practices of acupuncture with a philosophical understanding of living in harmony with nature, including your nature. It's more than just needles.

Everything you experience at Studio Qi Gold Coast Acupuncture clinic is based on acupuncture techniques, philosophies and ideas. Acupuncture is our life, we are specialists in acupuncture and we look forward to sharing our knowledge and experience with you.

Brad Fennell Acupuncturist and Business Owner

Growing up with a passion for the outdoors, nature and rock climbing, I arrived back in Australia injured from 12 months of world climbing. This led me to Acupuncture, the Gold Coast and  my wife, and would  change my life forever. My Acupuncture experience was profound, physically and emotionally, resulting in a greater sense of health and wellbeing that would lead me to follow my passion and dream to study Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Practicing Tui Na oriental massage in 1998, I became a fully qualified Acupuncturist in 2000. Obtaining a Bachelor in Health Science in Acupuncture, my wife Tabitha and I created Studio Qi Acupuncture Burleigh on the Gold Coast with a commitment to delivering the best in Acupuncture and complementary health care. I now combine Acupuncture practice with the development of Acufacilitation; using underlying Acupuncture philosophies to create a unique facilitation style.

I juggle a busy practice with writing, public  speaking and my greatest passion, time spent with my family.

Tabitha Fennell Acupuncturist and Business Owner

I began receiving Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine at the age of ten. When my sister experienced puberty onset asthma, my Mum (who was a chronic asthmatic) decided to research to find a different approach. Discovering a local Acupuncturist, my sister's symptoms soon disappeared with a course of Acupuncture, TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) dietary changes and prescribed vitamins and herbal formulas. This would lead to the whole family receiving Acupuncture care.

My love and belief in Acupuncture and how it effectively heals the body was deeply ingrained within me and resulted in me studing and completing an Acupuncture degree at the Australian College of Natural Medicine in 1997 and begining my Acupuncture practice on the Gold Coast.

Acupuncture has shaped the person I am today! I am wildly passionate about women's health: PMT, fertility, pregnancy, child birth, babies and beyond. Discovering acupuncture at a young age has given me first hand experience the support Acupuncture brings to the body, facilitating physical and emotional balance.

Being a busy mother (of three boys), wife and practitioner, I understand the role that TCM plays in supporting the hectic lifestyles that modern life demands.
