When Rob and Rose Noonan moved to the United States two years ago from Melbourne, Australia, they decided to find a place to open up a traditional Chinese medicine practice. They were looking for a certain attribute — a city open to unique ideas and alternatives.

They found that place in Ypsilanti. Oriental Rose officially opened Saturday at 124 Pearl St., Suite 301, after months of preparation.

We’ve been talking about moving to the U.S.," Rob Noonan said. "We came over two or three years ago and kind of fell in love with Michigan. We had a look around and Ypsilanti had the right demographic for us. It had the right vibe."

The location is historic and suitable for healthcare, Noonan said. "It's really what we were looking for."

Rose Noonan attended Victoria University in Melbourne, Australia, and obtained her license to practice in the U.S. about two years ago.

The services that we offer are alternative healthcare," Rob Noonan said.

He said the alternative form of medicine has been practiced for "thousands and thousands" of years in China.

Noonan said the business offers acupuncture, massages, herbal formulas, several other forms of alternative medicine and dietary and lifestyle advice.

"We don’t charge by procedure," he said. "We focus on acute chronic conditions. These traditional diagnostic techniques differ a lot from western medicine."

Rose Noonan's primary focus is on chronic or ongoing symptomatic conditions like chronic fatigue, allergies, stress, depression, insomnia, localized and systemic pain, back problems, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and migraines.

Rose Noonan serves as the sole practitioner, and Rob Noonan, along with another employee, manages the day-to-day operation of the business.

Rob Noonan said there are some differences between the Australian and American culture, so that employee helps navigate any potential difficulties that may arise.

"It's not hugely different, but it’s the little things that trip us up," he said. "If we go to McDonalds and order chips they look at us strangely. ... Everywhere we've gone, we've gotten, 'what's up with the accent?'"

Rob believes the practice will be successful.

"Ypsilanti seems open to alternative medicine and open to alternative ideas," he said, citing the Shadow Art Fair as an example. "

Rob also thinks the student population might be interested in Oriental Rose's services.

"When you have students, you have people happy to try a few new things," he said.

Besides operating the business in Ypsilanti, the Noonans have moved to the area as well and said the community has been welcoming.

"Ypsilanti is wonderful," Noonan said. "We’re really glad we moved here. All of our nei【请不要乱说话,词语被禁止】ors have been amazing. ... There was a little bit of nervousness when we first moved in, but everyone has been lovely and we're really looking forward to the business taking off and becoming part of Ypsilanti community."

The business is open Monday through Sunday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., except for Thursday.
