Greeting of Earth and Heaven and welcome to Royal Heart Wellness. A place to reset, unwind and nourish your mind, body, and soul. Giuseppe and Tikky Zappia offer a variety of Traditional Chinese Medicine options to work with you to reach your health and wellness goals.

Dr. Giuseppe Zappia currently has over five years’ experience working within a Chinese Medicine Clinic where he has been able to utilise his understanding of Chinese Philosophy, originally sparked by his love of Martial Arts. Giuseppe has managed to unify the many different threads of his scholastic interests, including Taoist Alchemy, Jungian Psychology, Ancient & Modern Spirituality, Lin Gui Ba Fa (chronological acupuncture) and I Ching (Ba Gua), incorporating his deep theoretical and practical understanding these multilayered facets of wisdom into his diagnosis and treatment principles.

Tikky has had over 20 years of experience in customer service and administration roles, primarily working with people with disabilities. She now manages Sol Phoenix Martial Arts Academy and is completing a bachelor’s degree in Complementary Medicine. She enjoys working with people and assists them in reaching their wellbeing goals. Tikky assists her husband in the clinic implementing treatment strategies and options whilst overseeing the day to day running of the practice.

Giuseppe has also studied Traditional Japanese Meridian and Needle Therapy with Paul Movsessian learning both insertion and non-insertion needle techniques. He is constantly researching to increase his knowledge and understanding of the systems of health and healing to assist clients in the best possible way that he can. Further offered is our unique blend of internal and external martial arts through our Academy, Sol Phoenix Martial Arts: www.solphoenix.site These sessions can either be done as a private class or group training.

Chinese Medicine has been shown to assist in the treatment of the following:
  • Psycho-emotional disorders
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Muscular aches and pains
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Gastrointestinal and digestive disorders
  • Paediatrics
  • Pregnancy & fertility support
  • Cosmetic acupuncture and more

Chinese Medicine aims to achieve wholistic wellness and homeostasis of the individual, balancing and harmonising the elements of the client’s inherent constitution. The adjustment of Qi flow is an important aspect of this process, for where there is blockage or disruption of Qi there is bound to be discomfort or dis-regulation which in consequence over time has the potential to lead to disease. At Royal Heart Wellness we create a series of individually and uniquely tailored treatments that work toward restoring optimal health, increasing overall quality of life, and general wellness, working with any existing health care practitioners you may have.
