I started helping people through nursing and found it to be a very rewarding career, but I also felt that there was something missing. On discovering Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, the holistic approach to health made sense because all aspects of a person's life is included in the diagnosis and the treatment.
Traditional Chinese Medicine, developed over thousands of years, takes a preventative approach to life and health providing a unique way of looking at health and disease. Qi (pronounced chee) provides an energetic description of the person and can be likened to a person's spirit/energy or blood and oxygen movement throughout the body. The physical, emotional, sociological, psychological and spiritual aspects are seen as interconnected and inseparable and therefore balance can be achieved in all aspects of one's life. I have always loved to help and my passion is to help as many people as I can to achieve wellness and stay well through the art of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture.
I am an accredited member of the Australian Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA) and registered with the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia, as part of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and uphold the highest standards of care and ethical treatment.
