Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine
How I Work
I’m an acupuncturist and Chinese medicine practitioner with extensive training in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and hypnosis. In my 12 years of practice I’ve done a tonne of additional study in the areas of fertility, women's health, integrative medicine and mental health.
Often, patients come to me when they have tried everything else. Their symptoms may have been disregarding by other healthcare practitioners, or they may have been told everything is 'fine' or that their symptoms are psychosomatic.
I treat a wide variety of health concerns in clinic. Whether you have been suffering from pain conditions, digestive complaints, low energy, autoimmune disorders or complex health issues there is much we can do to get you back on track. Treatment courses are outcome focussed and designed with your specific needs in mind.
What to Expect
Before your appointment you will be asked to complete a detailed intake form. This gives me an opportunity to get a sense of what's going on for you and how I might be able to help. At your appointment we discuss your health concern and desired outcome in more detail, as well as covering your general health, emotional wellbeing and lifestyle. In Chinese medicine, we see that the emotions and lifestyle factors are often a big contributors to ill health.
The treatment will be based on your specific needs. My acupuncture technique is gentle, even those who aren't a fan of needles are pleasantly surprised and find themselves deeply relaxed after the treatment. After your appointment you will receive a detailed plan with a clear pathway towards your health outcome.
Transformational Women's Health
My niche focus is working with women and those who identify as women to support their physical and emotional wellbeing, at whatever stage in life they are.
This is achieved through integration of the hormones through all stages of life; by regulating and supporting the gut and immune system, improving sleep and energy and relieving pain.
We work together to find balance in the emotional landscape. I do this by spending the time finding out exactly who they are and how they operate in this world. We explore their values, belief systems and how this impacts the way they show up and take care of themselves.
As we work together, very often, we uncover ways of operating in the world that are not working for them any more. Maybe they are tied in with old values or beliefs that are no longer true. Maybe they are a result of trauma or stress. Either way, we work together to break down these un-useful ways: to create new, generative and life-affirming ways of being in the world.
There are many women out there who are wanting to make this kind of change in their lives, but are just not sure how to start. This is where I come in. The kind of patients that I tend to attract are those who are deeply desiring this kind of change in their lives.
It is my absolute honour to be able to walk alongside these women as they make change.
This process can be messy, it can feel uncomfortable, there may be tears. But believe me, it is worthwhile. If you’re ready to make a change, reach out. I would love to work with you.
