Dr Kevin Ryan is AHPRA registered in Australia, to practice both Acupuncture and Osteopathy. He practices in Melbourne, Victoria. He was born at an early age in 1949. He has a continuing full time clinic practice of over 47 years. He has particular interests in the treatment of muscular-skeletal dysfunction, pain and neurological conditions, compromised fertility, mood disorders, inflammatory arthritis and endocrine disorders. He maintains a practice with a significant number of babies and children and disability patients. He was fortunate to study with the now world famous Geelong Osteopath Thomas Ambrose Bowen during the final 3 years of his life. Kevin returned the favor in some measure, by keeping Tom's practice operating for three months while it was on the market. Tom held a free monthly clinic for disability clients for much of his 35 years in practice. This clinic was kept running for some 12 years after tom's death. Over the last 18 years, and following his exposure to the Master Tung system of acupuncture, Kevin has developed his own unique approach to the use of gentle finger tip contact of acupuncture point pairs to treat muscular skeletal presentations. This is now known as Dao Ma (Coupled Point) Posture Method. These Methods have been developed sufficiently to present the approach in both face to face workshop and online formats.
The Dao Ma and Bowen Methods may be used with needling and most Tui na and Shiatsu techniques. Kevin has a long and continuing role in Program Advisory Committees in University courses in both TCM and in Osteopathy. He is former and founding member of the Complementary Medicines Evaluation Committee of the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration.
Kevin is a well respected and accomplished practitioner of Natural Medicine specializing in Constitutional Homeopathy. He is an active presenter at Acupuncture Association Conferences.
