I am a qualified acupuncturist and I am registered with the Australian Health Practitioners Registration Agency (AHPRA) and a member of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA).
I concluded my studies at Endeavour College of Natural Health with a Bachelors Degree in Acupuncture (Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture) and have made a commitment to pursue training in the field of Japanese acupuncture with the teachings of master practitioner Tsuyoshi Shimamura. And I have also studied Kiiko style acupuncture. Both Mr Shimamura and Kiiko Matsumoto are well renowned experts in the field of acupuncture.
“My specialty and interest lie in the treatment of muscular pain, such as lower back pain, sciatica, neck and shoulder tension, frozen shoulder and headaches/migraines. I have also helped patients with stress/mild anxiety, fatigue, women’s health (gynecological conditions), hay fever, skin conditions and pregnancy support.”
My interest in Chinese Medicine began a few years back when I was experiencing some personal health ailments and a friend recommended acupuncture to me. Prior to my acupuncture treatments I had visited many doctors and received treatments that were not able to help me improve my condition significantly. I was amazed that acupuncture was able to help. I finally found relief from pain and began to have more energy. It also helped me feel generally more uplifted. From that experience I became inspired to return to school and decided to study acupuncture and since then I haven’t looked back. I love my work in helping people and I am pleased to see my patients leave the clinic happier, with their condition improved.
