Stephen McDermott

A loving tribute to ‘Big Steve’

~ 19 Feburary 1962 – 5 May 2010 ~

Big hands, big feet and even bigger heart.

Steve left our world in the early hours on May 5. Sometime before he told his Aunt, “I treated many people with cancer – sometimes sucessfully, sometimes not, but unfortunately I couldn’t fix myself”.

Bayside Acupuncture in Brunswick heads was established in 2001 by Stephen McDermott. Stephen, a Taiji instructor graduated as top student from the Australian College of Natural Medicine (ACNM) in 2000. This study culminated with a practical internship at Guangxi medical university in China, where he won the university prize.

Upon returning home from his journeys in China, Steve founded Bayside Acupuncture. For 8 years he put his heart and soul into healing thousands of people and he built a reputation in our community as an incredibly generous soul and gifted healer.
