Rosemarie Lee Warnock is a Singaporean Chinese who migrated to Western Australia in 1984. She lives in the heart of the Karri forests on the Frankland River on the south coast having grown up in Singapore where she was surrounded by a culture steeped in Chinese medicine. "I recall small dark shops in Singapore selling all sorts of twigs, roots and leaves in large glass jars and many other things which I could not identify in my childhood days. It all seemed so mysterious and I was fascinated without knowing why."

Acupuncture in China                                                                                                                                                   

In 1997, Rosemarie initially did training in acupuncture at Guangzhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in South China. Here, she acquired experience in this ancient modality at the grass roots level, treating numerous patients in a busy Chinese state hospital. On return to Australia, she practised part-time in Walpole in conjunction with the Silver Chain Nursing Association, providing complementary health care to patients in this small rural town. "I was hooked from the start! Here, I found a craft which I loved. Even today, I am continually grateful for this powerful tool - acupuncture, which I use to help people with their health issues. I never forget how amazing it is that small needles can be used to profoundly change the energetics of a person and improve their health."

 Chinese Herbal training in Australia                                                                                                                  

In 2000, additional training enabled her to prescribe Chinese herbal formulas in the form of capsules, pills and granules, further extending the scope of her practice. "Herbs are the perfect complement to acupuncture, working from the inside whilst using acupuncture to effect changes from the exterior." Since then, Rosemarie has operated clinics in Walpole, Denmark and Albany in the South-west of WA. She has an extensive client base in Bali, Indonesia where she spends 3 months each year.

From 2010-2012, Rosemarie relocated to Melbourne to do a B.HSc in Chinese Medicine. This further extended her knowledge base in Western medical sciences and Chinese herbal medicine. She can presently prescribe herbal formulas which are individualised for particular patients, in raw herb or soluble granulated forms. This is a further extension of the service provided to clients and is one of the main strengths of Chinese herbal medicine. "I recall being interested in Chinese Medicine, but practitioners did not seem interested in explaining anything and my knowledge was limited due to my lack of Mandarin. Patients these days want to know what is going on with them, and it is important to be able to explain what the health issue is from the client's perspective."
