She does the same for her clients, when the root cause of the symptoms is found, nutritional medicine will assist your body to heal and have you feeling like a new person. Diana understands the struggle having been there herself and knows how hard it can be to implement these changes that’s why all the nutritional plans are individualised and based on you and your health goals.
Diana looks at the whole person and all the factors that have led you to these symptoms and health concerns. Understanding the cause is the key to helping resolve the complaint.

The first experience of acupuncture was shown at the age of 12. Roger was introduced to his mentor and master who enlightened him to begin a journey to become an Oriental Medicine Practitioner. He was given a single needle to treasure and cherish as a token of acceptance as the apprentice. In search to acquire the value and respect in the practice Oriental Medicine and conviction in helping others with his acquired expertise. He was mentored throughout high school and graduated in the Bachelor of Health Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine at University of Technology, Sydney. Roger is currently AHPRA registered practitioner and Member of ATMS.
Roger’s desire to learn and persistence to improve his knowledge in the practice allowed him to reach out with an open heart to other modalities in health care such as Chiropractic, Massage, and hypnotherapy. He has obtained comprehensive knowledge of other therapeutic ideologies and treatment methods to provide integrative treatment approaches and refer patients wisely. As everyone is different and no illness can be treated definitely with one of modality hence integrative treatment is necessity. Therefore he is capable of providing tailored treatment plan which cooperates in synergy with your current healthcare practitioners to achieve your health goals.
Roger has traveled to different countries and cultures in pursuit of diverse clinical experiences. There he volunteered his services at leading Oriental Medicine clinics, treating patients with a range of health conditions such as muscular-skeletal pains to complicated internal illnesses. During his journey, he was confronted with medical emergencies in airplanes where no sufficient medical aid was available. From acquired prior clinical experiences and up to date first aid, Roger calmly managed the situation and efficiently on different occasions. He has previously treated a passenger affected by the acute upset stomach (food stagnation), an elderly man who suffered severe motion sickness in relentless agony and a child with an acute headache. These invaluable experiences and extensive clinical experiences crystallized a strong confidence in the potent efficacy of acupuncture to address any health condition.
Roger specializes in the treatment of pain. He utilizes Acupuncture, Moxibustion, Cupping, Pain Control Technique and Herbal Medicine accordingly to best address the problems that people seek. He strongly believes that “Human body is the house of our spirit and the resident has the sole responsibility to take care of the condition (health)”. This only can be achieved by small gradual habitual changes and creating adequate health environment which will, in turn, awaken the powerful innate healer of the body to maintain well-being. He is passionate in helping and guiding people to improve health with better life choices and free of pain to enjoy what they love to do. The starting point of cultivating health (balanced Mind-Body-spirit) and curing disease is to know what harms us so that we can start to change some of our behavior.

After spending 12 years as a market research leader working at boutique agencies and top-tier global organisations, Gracielle realised she was in survival mode living her life with chronic neck and back pain, stressed, fatigued and feeling unfulfilled. It was while visiting a chiropractor in 2010 that she discovered her calling. He was working on her using Applied Kinesiology as a tool to investigate the stressors behind her pain and uncovered emotional and biochemical imbalances. The harmony in her body and mind was restored and she left that session pain-free. That was her first experience with kinesiology and soon after she decided to pursue a career in kinesiology to have that same impact in other people’s lives.
Gracielle became a qualified kinesiologist in 2012 and her mission is to become a catalyst for health and wellbeing enrichment to as many individuals as possible by helping them restore balance in all areas of life:
- Mental/emotional/spiritual: negative thinking, stress, fear, reoccurring self-sabotage, limiting beliefs, trauma, anxiety, depression, lack of identity, relationship issues, poor coping mechanism, inability to achieve goals
- Physical: pains and aches, injuries, poor posture, limited range of movement
- Biochemical: low immune system function, sensitivities, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalance, cravings, addictions
Having 6 practitioner qualifications, Gracielle combines kinesiology, coaching, neuro linguistic programming and positive psychology techniques to help her clients identify the underlying cause(s) behind their issues and address them on that level.
Her experience and areas of interest are:
- Pain management
- Stress, depression and anxiety management
- Emotional stress release
- Digestive issues
- Sleeping difficulty
- Mental fogginess and poor concentration
- Low self-confidence and self-esteem
- Fears, phobias and traumas
Gracielle is registered with the Australian Kinesiology Association (AKA) and a resident practitioner at Health Space Surry Hills.

During many years in the luxury retail industry, working for the most prestigious international brands like Armani, Prada, Gucci and Versace, Luca has also taken his personal journey to an inward level. Having experienced firsthand the search for happiness in acquiring more goods, becoming prettier, wealthier, trendier he noticed that certain human needs were not acquirable on the shop floor regardless on your level of income.
Out of curiosity and personal interest he started to explore a holistic approach to life in 2007, just before moving to Australia from Italy. During his exploration he obtained a Diploma in Energetic Healing from Nature Care College in Sydney, where he also integrated studies with a Professional Certificate in EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and is currently studying a Professional Certificate in Meditation Facilitation.
“Everything is made of energy. This is the basic understanding that allows us to embrace reality as a whole. Being able to resonate with the natural flow of energy in our life allows us to live a life that fulfils our soul, guiding us toward our purpose”
With his professional approach of meeting customer needs and the knowledge acquired during his course of studies at the end of 2015 he founded “Ynot You”, with the goal to create a space where people can focus on themselves and their life journey, restoring the balance that if lost can cause us diseases, discomfort and ultimately unhappiness.
“Life is an opportunity given to us in order to learn and grow from our own personal experiences. I believe there is not a right or wrong way to live our days as long as we keep our own personal balance, in full respect of others and the environment”
Luca continues to explore systems and modalities that he resonates the most with, like Aura Soma and Crystal Light Healing. Through “Ynot You” Luca can now share his findings with clients in order to help them restore their personal balance and live a fulfilled life.
Luca through Energetic Healing can assist with:
- Restoring balance on a physical, mental and spiritual level
- Dealing with stressful situations
- Dealing with changes in life
- Deepening your self discovery and self knowledge
