Registered Acupuncturist & Herbalist
I began my career as a financial analyst in the corporate finance world. Seeking an occupation that ignited my interest more than financial models, I decided to throw it all in and pursue something I was infinitely more passionate about.
I graduated from the Southern School of Natural Therapies in 2013 with qualifications in both acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. Upon graduation I completed a clinical placement at Tzu Chi General Hospital in Taipei (Taiwan); a large general hospital with a dedicated Chinese medicine wing. Since then I have been practicing in Melbourne.
I am registered with the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (CMBA) as both an acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist, and am a member of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA).
I have a deep respect for the accumulated wisdom held within all the ancient medical, health, and spiritual cultivation systems of the world. My life has essentially been a quest exploring these traditions; a search that has led me down the healing path, to ashrams and monasteries in India and Asia, to large hospitals dedicated to traditional medicine in Taiwan, and to a reverence for the power of the natural world to help us heal. My mission is to share those things I’ve learnt along the way in my own healing journey to help you on your path.
I have a particular interest in the sphere of preventative care, health cultivation, and the promotion of well-being. The Chinese medical tradition posits that it is better to strengthen the body, foster good health, and prevent disease than it is to fight disease once it has already taken hold.
Clinically, I have a primary interest in internal medicine; specifically all things digestion/gut/bowel related, as well as women’s health/menstrual cycle regulation, and skin conditions. I particularly like working with people who are very motivated about their health and healing; often the result of chronic long-term ill-health.
