Acupuncture & Classical Chinese Medicine
‘The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past,nor to worry about the future but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.’ Buddha
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Once you book your consultation, we will establish a timeline and full history of all important events in your life.
Based on the presentation of your symptoms (physical, emotional and otherwise), we will determine a pattern of imbalance.
A treatment strategy that involves acupuncture (and maybe cupping, Gua Sha and massage), tailored Chinese herbal medicine as well as diet and lifestyle advice will be discussed.
Once we agree on the treatment plan, you will be on your way, fully supported and empowered.
I was born and raised in Switzerland and discovered Australia in 1995. I completed my undergraduate education in Melbourne in 2001 And have been a registered Chinese medicine practitioner ever since. When permanently migrating to Australia in 2008, I established a professional herbal dispensary for Chinese medicine practitioners which I still operate and up until 2019, I managed a successful Chinese medicine and integrative health clinic in regional Victoria.
At heart, I am an enthusiastic practitioner eager to support you in finding a balance. I am focused on providing individualised care using acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine for a broad range of conditions. I am particularly well equipped to consult with children at all ages (from 6 months) and look forward to meeting you.
