Dr Ryan Whatford

Throughout his many years of practice Dr Ryan’s clinical focus has spanned a range of immunological, psychological, digestive, musculoskeletal, general pain related issues and undiagnosed conditions. In 2022 Dr Ryan sold his successful Chinese Medicine clinic in Byron Bay, to return to Melbourne to be closer to family and begin working at Element.


With a background in Ayurvedic medicine and meditation Ryan was drawn to Chinese medicine after he spent time with his teachers in the ashrams, temples and even Himalayan caves of India, there, he studied Kriya yoga and worked to understand the body’s subtle energy (Qi) system.

After realising his natural affinity to work Qi through the body he decided that it was time to use his gifts to heal and went on to complete a Bachelor of Health Science, majoring in both Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine, graduating his clinical examinations with flying colours!


When Dr Ryan treats you, he works with you to clear, rebalance and harmonise your meridians and organ systems. Ryan is registered with AHPRA and is a member of ANTA.
