I began my journey to healthcare through traditional Martial Arts. This led to Tai Chi and Qigong (which I now teach), then to long-term study with a renowned Qigong and Chinese Medicine Master. The next logical step was a Bachelor of Health Science (Chinese Medicine) degree, completed at the Southern School of Natural Medicine.
- Acupuncture, in which very fine needles are inserted beneath the skin at specific points
- Herbal Medicine, in which natural substances are ingested to redress imbalances
- Cupping, in which vacuum is applied at the skin’s surface for a therapeutic effect
- Gua Sha, in which scraping motions on the skin release tightness and stagnation
- Tui Na massage, in which hands-on bodywork addresses tension and pain
- Moxibustion, in which therapeutic warmth is applied to specific points
- Diet/Lifestyle advice
I am registered with the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia, and a member of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association.
Central to the philosophy and practice of all aspects of Chinese Medicine is an understanding of Qi (“chee”), nature’s intrinsic energy. In cases of pathology, practices may be employed to regulate, move, drain or notify this energy, depending on the individual diagnosis. It is this individualization which results in Chinese Medicine’s broad application and efficacy.
Many conditions can be addressed with Chinese Medicine, including
- Digestive problems
- Menstruation/fertility issues
- Muscular/skeletal ailments
- Mental/emotional disharmony
- Sleep disorders
- General health maintenance/prevention
Depending on your condition, one or more of the various therapeutic modalities may be applied: Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Cupping, Gua Sha, Tui Na, Moxibustion, Diet/Lifestyle advice.
