Acupuncture & Natural Therapies
***I am currently not taking on any new patients, I apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause and am more than happy to recommend other practitioners that may be able to assist you.
One of the many reasons I was drawn to TCM is its holistic and individualised approach to health and wellness. I use this body, mind, and spirit principle to treat the underlying cause of why you are suffering and try to alleviate the symptoms you are experiencing. Because as I tell nearly everyone I meet, everything is connected.
I like to take an integrative approach to healing and combine ancient Eastern wisdom with current scientific research to make sure that I am providing the best possible outcome I can for you.
Depending on your needs I utilise acupuncture and laser acupuncture in combination with complementary natural therapies such as abdominal massage, herbal castor oil packs, cupping, and heat therapy to assist your body in healing, and to help you start feeling like yourself again.
I have seen in my both my clinical practise and personal experience, that acupuncture can be an invaluable tool when looking for help to manage acute and chronic conditions and the feelings of helplessness that often come with them. My goal is for you to leave feeling better, more in balance, and empowered with the tools you need to support your wellbeing, including stress reduction, exercises, and self-care tips.
I am a degree qualified Acupuncturist and herbalist (BHscTCM), registered with the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (CMBA) and a member of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
My special interests are all things women’s health (including preconception and IVF support), anxiety and depression, autoimmune conditions and chronic pain management.

ACUPUNCTURE & CHI NEI TSANG
Chi nei tsang, which translates as “working the energy (Qi) of the internal organs" is an ancient Chinese medicine external massage technique that uses deep, gentle touch to help the internal organs and systems work more efficiently.

WOMEN'S HEALTH & FERTILITY
As this is a complex area of focus, and very individual, your first consultation and treatment may take a little longer than a musculoskeletal appointment for example.
Please allow around 90-100 minutes initially to discuss your particular concerns.
CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE
I offer a range of Chinese herbal medicine designed to suit your lifestyle including granules, liquids and capsules. An initial herbal consultation will take 60 minutes, the cost of herbs is additional and varies depending on your individual needs.
