  Dr Vivien Wright
I am a doctor who lives and works in Hobart, Tasmania. I am a medical acupuncturist and low level laser therapist and I am also a medical educator who currently works as GP leader/clinical editor for Tasmanian HealthPathways. I have a Fellowship of the Australian College of Medical Acupuncture (FAMAC) and I am an active member of the the Australian Medical Laser Association. I have a Laser Safety Certificate of the International Electrotechnical Commission.

Background I was born and brought up in Zimbabwe and qualified from the University of Cape Town in South Africa. I worked in hospital and community medicine in Africa for 5 years before moving to Australia. I have lived in Tasmania for 32 years and consider myself most fortunate because this small island is for me the best place in the world. I have worked in hospitals in Tasmania and as a General Practitioner and a medical educator teaching medical students and post graduate doctors.




















My interest in acupuncture and related therapies: My personal interest in acupuncture began when I found that acupuncture & low level laser therapy (LLLT) work for me for the chronic pain that followed being knocked off a motorbike when I was a medical student. I am now largely pain free because of treatment with low level laser therapy and acupuncture.

In 2000 I obtained a Fellowship of the Australian Medical Acupuncture College and in 2011 did what I have long intended to do and opened a medical acupuncture and low level laser therapy practice. 
I am accredited to practice acupuncture in Australia by The Joint Consultative Committee on Medical Acupuncture and the Medical Board of Australia (Australian Health Practitioner  Regulation Agency  or AHPRA).  I am a mentor for the Australian Medical Acupuncture College and a member of the Australian Medical Laser Association.
Continuing education in acupuncture, LLLT and related fields:
I regularly attend training programs with Australian and international educators in acupuncture and laser and related fields. My current interest is in the rapidly developing  field of fascia research and its relevance to acupuncture and other physical therapies.
