Acupuncture & Natural Therapies

About me


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 New Zealand Acupuncture Association (NZASA) and an ACC provider.

My special interests are chronic pain management, all things women’s health (including preconception and IVF support), anxiety and depression and autoimmune conditions.

I am a registered ACC provider.

Depending on your needs I utilise acupuncture, myofascial cupping, massage, heat therapy & herbal medicine to address your symptoms, as well as identifying the underlying reason for your condition. This is a holistic approach to get you back in balance.


A safe and natural beauty practice that will address your entire health and well-being. Very fine acupuncture needles are inserted into the face and body, (they are so fine in fact, that the treatment is virtually painless). This insertion stimulates your body’s natural repair process as fibroblasts activate collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin are two of the main protein building blocks in connective tissue, thus they can reduce the visible signs of aging by restoring volume and elasticity to the skin and underlying tissue.


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.


I offer a range of Chinese and Western 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. All herbal medicines are TGA approved, and free of animal products.
