I’m a qualified Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner with a special interest in fertility, women's & men's health, mental health, pregnancy, post-partum care and musculoskeletal pain relief. After graduating with a Bachelor of Health Science (Chinese Medicine), I volunteered at an integrative medical clinic in Nepal where I treated over 500 patients with varied conditions (and a lot of knees!). However it was working alongside the local midwife, witnessing the benefits of Chinese Medicine in both pre and post-partum care, that was the catalyst for working with women and birthing people in particular.
Over the years, I’ve had the privilege of interning with many well-respected Chinese Medicine practitioners in Melbourne and overseas, most recently working at a specialised fertility clinic in Melbourne before taking leave to give birth to my daughter Eden in 2020.
Having experienced both the ups and the downs of new parenthood (and all the in-betweens), I understand birthing parents’ needs: to be heard and feel deeply nourished. Treatments include oil massage and warming moxa (where appropriate), alongside acupuncture, cupping, gua sha and herbs. I also love to support couples on their fertility journey and women in all stages of life.
