Meet Our Clinicians

Overseeing and directing clinical aspects of treatment at AAC is senior clinician Paul McLeod. A registered Chinese medicine practitioner (AHPRA) with a strong background in mixed martial arts(Goju Kai Karate, Mauy Thai, Boxing, Tai ChiMedical and Iron Shirt Qigong), Paul has more than 23 years experience as an acupuncturist and Chinese medicine practitioner.

Paul McLeod

Paul is an acupuncture specialist with  extensive clinical experience. His formal qualifications in Chinese medicine and adult education are similarly extensive. In the early days, Paul served two informal apprenticeships in Classical Japanese acupuncture (one on the Gold Coast, Australia and the other in Tokyo, Japan). More recently, in his capacity as Senior Lecturer for one of Australia’s leading Chinese medicine schools, Paul spent 2 months as a visiting academic in Guangxi Traditional Chinese Medical University in Nanning, China. During his tenure, Paul chaperoned 30 final year undergraduate students from Australia through their clinical internship in a number of busy teaching hospitals and took the opportunity to attend university lectures and hospital rotations on a daily bases.

Paul’s broad ranging local and international experience has helped him develop a balanced and considered view of the role that both traditional and Western medicine play in the maintenance of health and well-being. Paul believes that this balanced view provides him and his team with an important edge when it comes to safely guiding patients through their healthcare journey at AAC.

Paul worked in a multi-modality clinic on the Gold Coast, Queensland for a period of ten years before moving to Geelong, Victoria with his family to open the Australian Acupuncture Centre.

Paul is available for acupuncture consultations at AAC on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Glenn Harrower

Glenn is our remedial massage practitioner. He is a big guy, so if you like your massage strong and to the point, then Glenn is your man.

Glenn’s strength comes from many years of Jiujistu practice, a sport renowned for developing athletes with very strong hands, and from years spent applying massage to sportspeople. Despite his physical strength, Glenn works closely with his patients to ensure that just the right amount of pressure is being applied during treatment to ensure the best possible outcome.

For added benefit and value, Glenn will often apply Chinese medicine cupping therapy to his patients to help reduce pain and improve function.

Glenn is available for massage consultations at AAC on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
