Chinese Medicine Practitioner & Acupuncturist
With women’s health so very close to my heart, it’s always been my intention as a holistic practitioner to ensure that every woman feels at home - in her body and in her healing.
Side by side with women at every stage of life, I hold space for women to receive both relief and real understanding. A space where the heaviness of any lost hope can finally feel heard, and the emotional toll of your experience can be held with deep care.
With me, your story comes first, as we go beyond the scope of your symptoms and never skim over the importance of your mental health and what matters most to you.
After walking my own path through fertility struggles and a hormone disorder, it was my own personal experience that initially led me towards a career in natural medicine, and it’s what keeps me connected to the heart of women’s health today. Nothing fulfils me more than ensuring all women are met with empathy and compassion during a time that can be filled with such pain and sensitivity.
Where medical gaslighting and confusion is the norm, consider me the warm heart behind restoring your hormone health and putting preconception, pregnancy or postpartum support back into loving hands. Somewhere where your plea for understanding can take respite whilst you rest in a newfound peace with your body’s healing.
To book a treatment, find me a Earth Mothers Community on the Gold Coast or Womb to World in Brisbane.

Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine
What is it and how can it benefit my health and well-being?
Traditional Chinese medicine encompasses many therapeutic techniques including acupuncture, moxibustion, Chinese dietetics and exercise therapy, Chinese herbal medicine, massage, cupping and guasha.
TCM and acupuncture is thought to have first originated over 2500 years ago and has become increasingly popular in Australia over the last 50 years. TCM prides itself on being an holistic treatment that may benefit a whole host of issues in both the body and mind.
Acupuncture uses the insertion of very fine, disposable needles along acupuncture points or meridians on the body to influence the normal flow of energy or 'Qi', circulate blood and fluids, alleviate stagnation and so much more to promote an individual's health and wellbeing.
Does acupuncture hurt?
Although some sensations may be felt with the insertion of needles into the skin, acupuncture very rarely induces a pain response and is considered safe when conducted by a registered acupuncturist or Chinese medicine practitioner.
What can I expect from a TCM consultation?
Thorough questioning and physical examination such as muscle testing, palpation and observing the tongue and pulse will help the practitioner determine what is the underlying cause of the symptoms you are experiencing. The practitioner will then insert needles or apply pressure to certain points on the body and may apply moxibustion (heat) to the end of the needles or perform other techniques such as massage, cupping or guasha. You may be prescribed some Chinese herbs or receive dietary, lifestyle and exercise advice to help assist you with your health needs.
"How strange that we would produce the most profound medicine within our own bodies, and then, somehow, forget to use it"
