Gold Coast Chinese Medicine Therapist / Acupuncturist
Bach. Health Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine 

My journey into natural therapies started when I suffered a personal health crisis. This experience inspired my pursuit of a career in Chinese Medicine and natural health. In 2014, I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Health Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the University of Technology in Sydney.

I believe that the holistic approach of Chinese Medicine can effectively reduce the impacts of a range of conditions including stress, anxiety, depression, chronic illness, infertility, immune, gastrointestinal, hormonal imbalance, and dermatological conditions. It is my role as a Practitioner, to support my clients on their journey to a better quality of life through an array of techniques.

Over the years, I have developed a special interest in women’s health and in particular their fertility journey. For many women, it is part of their life’s purpose to be a mother and I feel honoured to support them on their journey.

Compassion and comfort are my values. I take an integrative approach and know that by working on your mind, you will see results in your body. Similarly, by working on your body, you will also see the healing results in your mindset. I believe that working with other practitioners to tailor individual treatment plans is the key to holistic health and well-being.

I come from a corporate background and worked in Real Estate for over a decade. I understand the difficulty of maintaining a work-life balance and know and fully understand how stress can result in poor health. It is important to me that everyone I treat leaves educated about their body and feels empowered to make changes that ultimately will provide them with a better quality of life.

I look forward to sharing the wisdom of Chinese Medicine with you and supporting you on your journey to optimum health.
