Dr. Shaun Matthews
Dr. Shaun is a medical doctor, Ayurveda and Yoga therapist based in Sydney, Australia.
In 1987 he worked as a doctor in India with Tibetan refugees and had his first exposure to Tibetan medicine, which has many similarities with Ayurveda. Dissatisfied with elements of his training in western medicine, he returned to India in 1992 and studied Ayurveda at Gujarat Ayurveda University and a few years later undertook Yoga teacher training at the Bihar School of Yoga. He has been active in teaching Ayurveda, Yoga and meditation around Australia over the last twenty years, both of which he uses extensively in his clinical practice.
He was on the organising committee of the international Ayurveda and Yoga conferences held in Sydney in 2006 and 2009 and is also a Fellow of the Institute of Indian Medicine (Ayurveda) in Pune, India.
He has also done extensive training in various complementary medicine therapies including somatic or body-oriented psychotherapy, massage, iridology, Reiki, and reflexology which he uses to inform his work with patients.
He is the author of the books “The art of balanced living – The right diet and lifestyle for your body type” and “Journeys in Healing – How others have triumphed over disease and disability”.
