Sandie Griffiths

Sandie Griffiths, the inspiration behind Natural Wellness Albert Park, has an extensive career with over 26 years of dedicated practice as a Doctor of Chinese Medicine. With a reverence for the profound insights of Chinese Medicine, Sandie’s approach is defined by her understanding of the intricate interplay between the mind and body.


Sandie’s passion lies in accompanying patients through their unique health journey, particularly women, traversing the varied landscapes from adolescence to the transformative phases of childbearing, menopause, and beyond. Having commenced her career in a busy sports clinic in Melbourne and furthered her expertise in various clinics in Victoria, Sandie sees the value of using acupuncture and Chinese Medicine to treat musculoskeletal pain disorders and other conditions.


Beyond the clinic, Sandie deepened her knowledge of Chinese medicine completing an internship at Zhejing Hospital of TCM in Hangzhou, China, where she worked alongside leading Doctors of Chinese Medicine. Further to this, Sandie’s interest in eastern medicine took her to Washington State in the USA, where she studied Distal Needling Acupuncture and pulse diagnosis. Sandie brings the knowledge of these world-renowned methods to her daily practice at NWAP.


Sandie has a broad educational background including a double degree – Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Arts from The University of Melbourne. Sandie has practised yoga for over 30 years and it was through this experience that she deepened her commitment to meditation, learning from a master of Hatha Yoga and Kriya meditation. She values meditation as an essential tool for wellbeing.


Sandie lives locally with her husband and their three teenage children. She appreciates the delicate balance between family life and professional commitment. In her spare time, she loves bike riding, walking in nature, reading books and spending time with her friends and family.


Sandie’s approach to health and wellbeing is a holistic one. Each person will have a unique combination of genetics, symptoms, health history & life situation, including stress levels, exercise and nutritional intake. This is all taken into consideration when forming a Chinese Medicine diagnosis and treatment plan.


Sandie prioritizes active listening and focuses on supporting her patients in their journey towards optimal health. One of her favourite quotes, by the Dalai Lama, is “when you talk, you are only repeating what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new”. Sandie enjoys working with patients who are dedicated to their health and willing to address all facets of their wellbeing for comprehensive healing.
