Dr Mark Shoring (Chinese Medicine)
Dr Mark Shoring (Chinese Medicine) has been in practice for over 18 years and is an Australian recognised leader in the practice of Chinese and Naturopathic medicine.
Commencing his career with a lengthy Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine hospital internship in Nanning hospitals 1 and 2 located in Guangxi province of China, Mark quickly recognised the importance of developing higher levels of knowledge and skill in the practices of Chinese and Naturopathic medicine. This led Mark to complete many additional post-graduate programs at mainstream Australian universities (as listed below) whilst also developing his own professional knowledge and skill through extensive patient contact in the field.
It is through this quest for further knowledge and skill that led Mark to also apply and subsequently succeed in many senior educational roles at the 'Australian College of Natural Medicine' now trading as 'Endeavour College of Natural Health'. Endeavour College of Natural Health is Australia's largest training provider for undergraduate bachelor level qualifications in Chinese and Naturopathic medicine programs. These roles included but are not limited to the following:
These roles have seen Mark play both previously and current an active role within the professional training of Acupuncturists and Naturopathic Medicine Practitioners.
In addition this led Mark to also served as a director on the board of the Australia Natural Therapists Association (ANTA). ANTA is the largest professional practice body within Australia that represents a wide range of professions including Chinese and Naturopathic Medicine. It is through these duties Mark worked collaboratively with the board to ensure high level on-going professional and legislative recognition for practitioners Australia wide whilst also serving regularly as a expert in the field of Chinese and Naturopathic Medicine at continuing professional education seminars delivered throughout Australia.

Moderate-quality evidence suggests that acupuncture relieves pain better than sham acupuncture, as measured at completion of treatment and at short-term follow-up, and that those who received acupuncture report less pain and disability at short-term follow-up than those on a wait-list. Moderate-quality evidence also indicates that acupuncture is more effective than inactive treatment for relieving pain at short-term follow-up.
