Why we care

The people behind San have always felt a deep connection to Mother Nature and all creatures great and small.

Through our TCM work both in Australia and in China we began to realise the impact Chinese herbal medicine could have on some animal populations.

We believe that TCM as a whole is invaluable as a natural medicine but we also choose to help raise awareness about the illegal trade of tiger parts (sometimes used in Chinese medicine) that still exists today.

A percentage of every sale made in our store each month will be given to help raise funds to support tigers and other animal welfare organisation initiatives around the globe, to fight the good fight.​

WWF help protect these big cats in the wild. A world without tigers is unthinkable. However, in less than 100 years the wild tiger population is estimated to have fallen to as low as 3,200.

The tiger's once wide distribution has shrunk by 93% and in most cases tiger populations are restricted to a few desperate refugees in these last remaining patches of habitat.

The future for the tiger could not look bleeker.

Currently there are three main threats to the tiger’s survival:

Poaching and illegal trade of tiger parts and habitat loss

The team at SAN support WWF's global tiger initiative which aims to double the tiger population by 2022, before it really is too late.

The aim of International Animal Rescue is to come to the aid of suffering animals around the world. Wherever possible they return rescued animals to their natural environment, but also provide permanent sanctuary for animals that can no longer survive in the wild.​

Practice is not just about making lots of money. It’s not just about how to get clients or online marketing techniques, social media strategies or leadpages. It’s also not about trying to scrape together two pennies to pay the rent or working constantly to keep your head above water. What do you really want?

Let’s find the middle ground. Your sweet spot. One where you create positive change, and are valued - with real money!​

You are not alone. Many of the problems you have in practice are shared with others. Since starting Ethical Practice in 2009, we have consistently found the top seven practitioner challenges are:​

  • Needing more clients
  • Retaining clients
  • Handling missed appointments and cancellations
  • Getting that website developed and found on Google
  • Using social media without it consuming you (or boring you)
  • Inspiring referrals from others, particularly other trusted practitioners
  • Overworked and overwhelmed

You might have other practice challenges – like embarking on new booking technology, training receptionists, financial management or simply feeling dog-tired all the time. We get it. And we are here to help you every step of the way.

Practice is more than just a job. It’s a vocation, something you believe in, feel passionate about and can see the benefits it brings to people. It’s something you love, you live, you breathe.​

Practice is not something you plug into the wall and switch on. Your practice is a living-breathing organism that requires your attention to grow, thrive and become a true agent of transformation. You, your clients, your clinic space, your promotional material, and your systems - these elements are all interconnected. This practice organism of yours wants to be healthy and thriving. Achieve this and you will embody your true purpose. Which is? Exactly this: practicing, serving your clients and being valued for it.​

ACMA promotes safety, quality and ethics in practice. In 2012, the Chinese medicine profession joined the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (National Scheme). This is the same scheme that regulates medical practitioners, physiotherapists, chiropractors, dentists, nurses and midwives etc.

Chinese medicine practitioners must now be registered with the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (CMBA) in order to offer acupuncture and Chinese medicine services to the public.

NeedlePro Australia was founded purely on clinical experience by Sohial Farzam (Doctor of TCM, Lecturer and Speaker).

As a long-term lecturer at Endeavour College of Natural Health and through now 16 years of extensive clinical experience both in China and here in Australia, Sohial’s experience (through) NeedlePro was to seek to find the best needle products on the market. With dedication and commitment, he was able to bring a world-class product to the hands of the skilled Australian practitioner…that is Korean DongBang Acupuncture needles.

Sohial, alongside the vast number of practitioners Australia wide whom support NeedlePro’s products and NeedlePro’s greater vision for advancing acupuncture products, stay committed to always offering excellence in service and empowering practitioners with the principles of value, quality of products, innovation and a commitment in always enriching practitioner experience.

The background of NeedlePro has always been set in providing further education and knowledge to practitioners through the many live seminars held and hosted by NeedlePro Australia as well as personally presented by Sohial Farzam.

Sohial and his colleague and fellow practitioner Hamish Reid (practitioner, lecturer and speaker) created a public forum group page and business entity famously known as ‘The Acu Guys’. The Acu Guys is a platform where Sohial and Hamish share their passion and specialised areas of expertise in TCM as well as their long-term love and commitment to enhancing practice development to help practitioners create and sustain winning businesses to help evolve the TCM profession.

The Acu Guys mission is to empower practitioners to live to their full potential and expand beyond their personal limitations and fears to create their dream practice and make it fun along the way.
