Tell us a little bit about yourself: Eg education, experience, outstanding achievements
After completing four years of committed study in Chinese Medicine, I received a Bachelor of Health Science in Acupuncture. During this time I embarked on a student mentoring position in one of the Gold Coasts most reputable Acupuncture clinics, being directed in the Classical Acupuncture and advanced Moxibustion techniques. I have been trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine, as well as a classical style of Japanese Acupuncture (five element). This style has allowed me to develop a gentle and pain free approach to healing. I am constantly refining my skills and furthering my knowledge. I have continued my education, studying ‘Neuro-Intergration System’ and completing my first year of Natural Medicine.
As an Acupuncturist I am extremely passionate about holistic health and wellbeing, with a love for fitness, the outdoors and natural environment. I am highly motivated to deliver quality care to clients and provide the highest level of treatment available, with focused commitment to continual learning, and the development of new skills.
At the heart of Chinese Medicine is Daoist philosophy. This belief embraces and acknowledges the interconnection of the human body, its environment and the universe at large. This connection with life and nature leaves humans subject to its forces where health and disease are determined by balance of function. The essence of acupuncture is individualized treatment, whereby diagnosis requires thorough examination: interviewing, listening, observing and palpating. Observing the presentation, differentiating the patterns and understanding the pathomechanisms is vital for diagnosis and re-establishing balance and homeostasis.
