Ivan McWilliams wishes to promote the ideals that improve the physical, mental and spiritual health of people.
Ivan has diplomas in Tuina, Acupressure, TCM theory and philosophy, Acupuncture and Remedial Therapy.
He has a very successful private practice in Adelaide since 1992 which he now attends every three weeks when he travels down from Queensland (where he currently resides and has a practice).
I have been in practice using Tuina (Traditional Chinese Therapeutic Massage) exclusively since 1993, and have taught Tuina at a certificate level privately.
In 1997 he started using Acupuncture in clinic practice along with Tuina at about a 70/30 (tuina/acupuncture) ratio.
He taught Sports massage at the SAHEC (now Endeavour College in Adelaide) as part of the Remedial Massage Diploma from 1996.
In 2000 he wrote and taught the Diploma of Tuina course for SAHEC in Adelaide for 7 years, training students in TCM philosophy and Tuina.
In June and July of 2010 he was employed by Endeavour College in Brisbane to upgrade their Tuina lecturers from Certificate 4 level to Diploma level. He has been involved with Endeavour College from time to time since then.Currently with the help a good friend we are writing a practical book on Tuina.
For over 35yrs he has taught and is the head of the Kemka Silat martial arts style.
With the help of two friends he has established the “The Little Treasure’s Foundation,” www.littletreasuresfoundation.org.au to help children and their families through illness using alternative and modern medical modalities, where all expenses are paid for by the foundation. A long term goal is to set up a health retreat to help people deal with health and lifestyle issue. This would help fund a free retreat for the children to go to during the illness.
