Julienne Tatkovic Chinese Medicine Practitioner, BChinMed (Hons)
Founder and resident practitioner at Mei Hua Clinic
Hello and welcome to Mei Hua Chinese Medicine Clinic. I am Julienne Tatkovic, a registered Chinese medicine practitioner and I love helping women in their healing journeys.
I am here to help you with your health concerns in a wholistic and supportive way.
I have been an oriental health professional for 20 years, and have many tools to help you to transform your health journey in a gentle and nurturing way.
I have had the fortune of living in Bali, Indonesia, bringing up my twin boys while working at the Chinese medicine clinic at Yayasan Bumi Sehat, a natural birthing centre in Bali, Indonesia.
It was an incredible experience of bringing together community health with the transformative experience of natural pregnancy and birthing. This experience helped to create my passion to empower women in their life's healing journeys.
My clinic is on the waterfront in Redcliffe, Queensland where i offer acupuncture, herbal treatments and Heather Bruce's 'The Gentling Way' approach to healing.
I also offer skype consultions for women living in areas that do not have access to natural healing methods.

Plum (梅: mei) is a highly valued plant in Chinese Culture. The beauty of its tree and blossoms inspires many works of art and poetry, while its fruits have been commonly used in Chinese culinary and medication.
Plum blossoms (梅花: Méi Huā) usually bloom by the end of winter against the snow and frosts. It beautifies its surrounding while other plants shed their leaves and rest in the harsh cold weather, offering unequaled view in the season. For this special quality, the plum blossom was admired as an icon of endurance and perseverance.
Its timing in the budding had made it a symbol of rebirth and faith for the return of the spring. Therefore, it became the representative flower of winter in the “Flowers of the Four Seasons” (四季花: Si Ji Hua) along with Orchid (spring), Lotus (summer) and Chrysanthemum (Autumn).
