BARTLEY MELOCCO

Bachelor of Health Science (UTS)

Bartley Melocco is the founder and principal Acupuncturist at Sevenways Health Centre in North Bondi, Sydney Australia.

Bartley created the Centre as a purpose-built space for a multidisciplinary clinic where practitioners could collaborate together to treat the community in Bondi. The Centre is staffed by a team of professionals who are highly experienced, patient focused and passionate about their fields.

Bartley’s interest in the human condition started while he was working behind the scenes as a construction rigger in the local and international rock ’n’ roll, film and television industries. He witnessed and experienced the many highs and lows of the lifestyle in these industries and the challenges for the physical and psychological health of both artists and crew.

During those periods of working long shifts Bartley found relief by receiving acupuncture treatment and it was while on a treatment table that he had an epiphany and decided on a career change that led him to study a Bachelor of Health Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine at UTS Sydney in 1998.

Over many years he has travelled extensively through Europe, Asia and South America studying yoga, vedic meditation, qigong and bio energetic healing.

After graduation Bartley worked as an acupuncturist for eight years in a busy practice in Mosman, on Sydney’s lower north shore, and for the last five years he has been the senior acupuncture practitioner at Sevenways Health Centre in North Bondi.

Bartley’s specialisation has developed through postgraduate education and current medical research. His musculoskeletal pain relief treatments originate from Master Tung and Dr Wei Young, his Five Element Spirit-based treatment from Prof Jack Worsley, Neo Classical pulse diagnosis from Professor Leon Hammer and Dr John Shen for treatment of modern day pathologies.

Bartley is known locally in Bondi for his patient-focussed treatment and care. He empowers clients to look at their exercise routine, diet, lifestyle and work practices to help bring about a greater feeling of wellbeing and peace of mind.

He regularly works with GPs, psychologists, osteopaths, midwives and naturopaths to provide additional support for those with more complicated health conditions. His areas of specialisation include:

  • Musculoskeletal pain and sports injury
  • Women’s  health
  • Anxiety and stress
  • Fertility ( male and female)
  • Immune disorders
  • Pregnancy and postnatal care
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Digestion and nutrition

Bartley currently works as a volunteer providing acupuncture, lifestyle and nutritional advice on site for the kids in the Ways Centre in North Bondi (www.ways.org.au). 

Ways is a not-for-profit organisation providing onsite senior high school education, healthcare, counselling and support for at-risk kids from 14 to 17 years of age.

When not at Sevenways or volunteering at Ways Youth Service, Bartley can be found enjoying surfing with his family at Bondi Beach, working in the local community garden or walking his barmy chocolate labrador, Bella.
