Launceston acupuncture clinic now open!

Launceston clinic tableBig news! My new clinic in beautiful Launceston is officially open.

It’s been a little while in the making (I’ve been writing a subject on Chinese Medicine dietary therapy for an acupuncture degree program) but the clinic is now ready for patients!

This is primarily a women’s health practice in line with my professional experience and further education. I enjoy supporting women with a range of menstrual issues (including period pain), couples through preconception care, natural fertility cycles and IVF/ART, as well as assisting women throughout their pregnancies and towards birth. Additionally, research and my clinical experience indicates that acupuncture is also effective for a range of common pain conditions including osteoarthritis of the knee, chronic lower back pain, headaches and migraines (prophylaxis).

I bring to each consultation a blend of skills and knowledge from my clinical experience and academic pursuits (formerly, Senior Lecturer of Chinese Medicine at Endeavour College of Natural Health, Gold Coast). My qualifications include a Master of Health Science (Traditional Chinese Medicine) with distinction and a Bachelor of Health Science (Acupuncture); I’m regularly staying up to date with training – so you’re in good hands. You can read my bio here.

I’m pretty excited to be bringing my compassionate style of Chinese Medicine to you with a range of  treatment techniques including acupuncture (including electro-acupuncture and laser acupuncture as required), tuina (Chinese massage), cupping, Chinese dietetics and lifestyle advice adapted to assist you as an individual with reaching your health goals.

The clinic is now open on Tuesdays and Fridays!

Well due to popular demand and a tweak in my lecturing work schedule I have been able to open up two afternoons per week for acupuncture and massage bookings.

So that means you can book in for a treatment on:

  • Tuesday 1-5pm (last appointment at 4pm)
  • Friday 1-6pm (last appointment at 5pm)

This will make it really easy for those of you who might need treatment twice per week too – that is if you have acute pain, want a faster result (more frequent dose of acupuncture) or if you want a few different conditions treated over the same time frame (for example, back pain and digestive problems).

What can acupuncture treat according to the latest medical research? What is acupuncture point injection therapy? And what is tuina massage and how can it help you? I offer all of these services and also cupping and guasha.

To make an appointment or to find out if I can help you call 07 5526 8632.

Looking forward to seeing you in the clinic soon.

After four years of studying a Master of Health Science (Traditional Chinese Medicine) degree at the University of Western Sydney (UWS), balancing study with lecturing and clinical practice, I can say that I have finally finished! (It’s been such a long time the uni has even changed its name in that time to Western Sydney University – WSU!)

I am really glad I’ve had the opportunity to do this course. I have learnt so much, made great friends and studied under some of the great Chinese Medicine teachers in the world.

While I’m very grateful to have my Saturday nights back (no more late night researching and assignment writing) here’s a few things I am very happy to have learnt while reading everything I could on the following women’s health topics:

I studied a diverse range of topics in addition to women’s health (eg. osteoarthritis, anorgasmia and irritable bowel syndrome) which I’ll cover in subsequent blogs.
