Studying at UTS is the most amazing learning experience, the degree is so practical and from the first day you’re learning, interacting with patients, your peers and your lectures. Your lecturers are so inspiring and I’ve forged relationships that are still there today and it’s through that that’s helped me to succeed and get me to where I am.

My name’s Herbert Huiskamp, I’m an acupuncturist and Chinese medicine practitioner.

Growing up in the Blue Mountains was an amazing experience and it was here that I developed a passion for martial arts, nature and Eastern philosophies. In 2009 I had a training injury doing martial arts and I’d injured my back. I’d tried absolutely everything and nothing was able to help me so I eventually decided to give acupuncture a try and after a fantastic response it opened my eyes to the world of Chinese medicine.

Chinese medicine is such a fascinating field to work in, every day you’re challenged with new patients, new interesting things to diagnose, treat and find solutions to your clients’ healthcare problems. My goal for the future is to develop my clinics so that I may be able to support new graduates to develop their careers while giving myself the opportunity to return to UTS and undergo postgraduate research in the field of Chinese medicine so that I may give back to the Chinese medicine and medical communities.
