I have always had a strong interest in natural health and Eastern philosophies. From a young age metaphysical philosophies have always captured my interest. I started studying the Tarot and Kabalistic philosophies as a young teenager and expanded into areas such as astrology, palmistry and many others.
I graduated with honours in 2001 from Victoria University completing a Bachelor of Health Science degree specialising in Traditional Chinese Medicine: Acupuncture & Moxibustion. During the final year of my formal studies I completed a clinical internship in China with the ShenYang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Dalian Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This included a focus on treating children (pediatrics), stroke and musculo-skeletal problems.
Throughout my studies and acupuncture career I have participated in numerous voluntary placements throughout the community including drug rehabilitation facilities and various community outreach programs.
Following on from my studies in Traditional Chinese Medicine I completed a Diploma of Education and spent over ten years working as a Primary School teacher as well as practicing Acupuncture. Working with children as a primary school teacher has fostered a caring and gentle approach whilst interacting with and treating children of all ages.
Metaphysical studies are a life-long practice of thought, contemplation and development. This has resulted in completing many courses and joining a range of groups, orders and organisations. One of the many focuses I enjoyed was completing the three levels of Esoteric Acupuncture and becoming a Reiki Master in the Usui, Tibetan and Seichim Reiki Traditions.
“I believe that through blending the ancient metaphysical wisdom of the West with the foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine in the East, we can treat each person individually at a fundamental level through incorporating the mind, body, spirit and emotions to achieve optimum health, vitality and wellbeing.”
