Acupuncturist
Elio Mendoza - Health Space Clinics

Elio has been interested in health since an early age. He grew up in Colombia observing his father, a general practitioner, connect with clients by having the time to listen and understand each patient as an individual. From this Elio learnt that caring for each person should lay the foundations of a therapeutic relationship.

In 2008 Elio graduated as a Registered Nurse, since then he has been working at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Camperdown, mainly in the area of Intensive Care. The years of work in critical area taught Elio that health preservation and quality of life should be priority in any health system. It was because of this that Elio was drawn towards the millenarian art of traditional Chinese Medicine and its associated philosophy of living; Chinese Medicine attempts to restore health by promoting good practices, encouraging physical and mental activity, and by finding balance using simple yet effective therapies.

After a mind-opening journey of discovery Elio completed his degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine at the University of Technology Sydney in 2015. He has recently joined the Health Space Newtown crew, ready to be part of a multidisciplinary team to achieve wellbeing and promote health.

Elio believes in the power of good habits to maintain wellness; he meets his daily exercise regime by riding his bicycle to work through the leafy streets of Redfern and Erskineville. On his free time Elio clears his mind by taking pleasure in gardening and woodworking.

Having seen his hard working nursing colleagues suffer from a myriad of musculoskeletal complaints, anxiety and sleep disturbances, Elio has become interested in these areas as his main focus of practice using herbal medicines, acupuncture and associated techniques such as cupping, moxibustion, guasha and tuina massage.
