Why Chinese Medicine?
Chinese medicine is a traditional oriental system that focuses on treating the root causes of medical conditions, as well as the symptoms. In a typical consultation your practitioner will check your pulse and tongue to identify any imbalances in your body.
Once your practitioner has diagnosed your condition, you will be treated accordingly with acupuncture, cupping, massage, guasha or herbal medicine. As opposed to modern Western medicine, which finds diseases and treats the symptoms, Chinese medicine finds health and leads the patient towards it.

“I have experienced first hand the healing powers of Chinese medicine, and for that reason I decided to become a practitioner myself. I love helping others on their journey to achieve optimum health and live a life free from dis-ease”

B.H.Sc (Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine)
I am a registered Acupuncturist and Chinese Medicine Herbalist, member of the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (CMBA). I completed a Bachelor of Health Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine, in Melbourne, Australia. And have also studied other areas of holistic medicine, such as Ho'oponopono/la‘au lapa‘au, Dr Tan's Balance Method acupuncture and cosmetic acupuncture, in Hawaii, Luzern and Melbourne respectively.
I am currently undertaking a Masters of Reproductive Medicine with UNSW, as I believe that optimum care is the result from a perfect balance of western and eastern medicine.
My interest in Chinese medicine began when working in the corporate world, during this time stress and overwork started to have an impact in my health and my body. After a series of diagnosed conditions, with no Western medicine cure, I decided to try Chinese medicine and the results blew my mind. Since then, the passion for what I do began and I strive to help others to get their life back too!
In my practice, I have a gentle and effective approach. I use various elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine and work holistically to fix the root of the problem to help you achieve optimum health.
As a certified yoga and meditation teacher, I also like to incorporate these elements and run regular meditation workshops to people who think 'can't meditate'.
In clinic I have a special interest in the treatment of pain management, musculoskeletal pain and injuries, women's health, menopause, IVF/fertility support, stress management, hormonal imbalance, and allergies.
I am available for appointments at my practices in Sydney Eastern suburbs, Surry Hills, and at the Fertility Suite in Manly.
