Our lives have become a constant juggling act; we’re on the go from the moment we wake until our head touches the pillow at night. We often exhaust our body’s energy. Between the demands of our job, finding time for exercise, maintaining relationships and caring for a family, we deplete the energy we earn from sleep, food, exercise and the company of others. Our daily needs repeatedly outpace our intake of energy, with self-care and maintaining a healthy lifestyle often falling down the 'to do' list.

There’s so much conflicting information about what is actually good for us and trying to figure it out is confusing and daunting. I aim to bring things back to basics to help you find a simple, healthy, balanced lifestyle that’s right for you. I will help you to reflect on what works for you and together we'll create a plan which will cover both your physical and mental health.

Immune System & Respiratory Health

My back to basics approach will ensure you receive a personalised treatment as well as all-encompassing lifestyle adaptations specifically tailored to you to be achievable and sustainable.  


Personalised

This approach treats the root cause of the imbalance as well as the symptoms themselves. This can help prevent the symptoms from progressing as well as preventing further consequences from manifesting. 

Preventative

I work with a team mentality; partnering with you throughout the healing process. From ensuring they understand their treatment to supporting them through lifestyle adaptations. I also partner with my patients’ other healthcare providers to ensure coordinated care. 

Participatory

MY APPROACH IS

Functional medicine is a more modern, patient-centered, science-based approach to determining how and why illness occurs. It requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s  lifestyle and looks into the abnormal changes in the body's function  that are the causes or consequences of disease. This information is gathered through a health history, lifestyle questionnaire and, when necessary, lab tests.

This medicine requires patients and practitioners to work together to restore health by addressing the root causes of disease, which will be specific to each individual and may include lifestyle changes, dietary changes, supplements or in some cases a referral on to a GP/Specialist.


In Chinese Medicine, health relies on the smooth flow of energy (Qi) around the body’s network of channels (meridians). Each organ has its own channel and all connect in a continuous circuit.

Acupuncture stimulates the body’s ability to self-heal by rebalancing any deficiency, excess or sluggishness in the flow energy. This is achieved by needling acupuncture points along the channel associated with the particular organ that is out of balance. Alternatively, moxa, cupping or tuina may be used to create change over a larger area. 





Acupuncture & Functional Medicine actually work?

HOW Does

The appointment will start with a conversation about the reason for your visit and your health history based on the details given in your returned initial consultation form.  I will then carry out a physical exam including looking at your tongue, taking your pulse, testing range of movement for musculoskeletal conditions, carefully palpating areas of pain (if possible) and taking your blood pressure. I will then begin the treatment which may require you to move or remove items of clothing. This will be discussed and agreed with you beforehand. Your privacy and ease will be maintained as towels will be used to ensure you are covered at all times.

What should I expect in my appointment?
