Dr Louis Cali


My practice began in New York where I trained at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in Manhattan, after completing a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology and a Doctorate degree in Law.  I migrated to Australia with my family in 2003 and established a complementary medicine clinic, Holistic Health of Berwick, where I currently practice.

My patients are drawn from across the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne, as well as from the Dandenong Ranges, Mornington Peninsula, Bayside, Phillip Island and Gippsland.


Due to my clinical and legal experience, I have served in various capacities for the Chinese Medicine Registration Board of Victoria.  I act as a mentor to other practitioners, train students of Chinese medicine and preside as a sessional member of VCAT under the Health Registrations Act.

I am Board-registered, fully-insured and a member of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA).
