Since graduating with a joint Bachelors of Science Honours degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the Beijing University for Chinese Medicine and Middlesex University (London, UK) in 2004 I have been striving to deliver the best clinical results for my patients. This passion has lead me to seek out the best teachers within the various specialities of Chinese Medicine. I took extensive training at the Beijing Massage Hospital in 2007 with a four month internship in the study of Tuina. I later brought western techniques into the mix with the completion of a Neuromuscular Therapy paper at Wellpark College where I also taught Acupressure. I also plunged my fingers into the wonderful world of Anatomy Trains Myofascial Meridian Techniques with Mark Finch. I have studied Contemporary Chinese Pulse Diagnosis with Karen Bilton, trained in the treatment of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and other gynaecological and Infertility issues with Jane Lyttleton. With over ten years experience as a massage therapist I have recently had the privilege of beginning training with Ann Cecil-Sterman and apply a unique classical Sinew Acupuncture technique for the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. To further my practice in nutritional medicine I have completed training with Dr Clare Pyers (TCM) in the bridging of functional medicine and TCM in interpreting Blood test and functional testing results, and continue mentorship with her.
Recently I have become a certified Fertile Life™ Method practitioner. This method provides both couples and individuals who have been experiencing primary and secondary infertility, whether through IVF or trying to conceive naturally, with a comprehensive program of natural treatment options to conceive and achieve a successful pregnancy. This method is a gorgeous fusion of Chinese Medicine, nutritional therapy and functional medicine and an understanding of the best that Western Medicine has to offer.
For the last 8 years I have been intensely involved with the New Zealand Institute of Chinese Medicine providing Continuing Professional Development education to Chinese Medicine practitioners in NZ in the roles of Treasurer, Secretary and President.
My clinical focus is on empowering people to take their health into their own hands, and I offer solutions in the form of lifestyle and dietary advice, nutritional therapy, Massage & Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Aromatherapy and other techniques from the Chinese Medicine toolbox.
I enjoy working with people to address their musculoskeletal ailments, my field of expertise.
I am registered with New Zealand Acupuncture Standards Authority and am a member of the New Zealand Institute of Chinese Medicine, a friend of the Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine, and am registered with the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC). These professional bodies guarantee the highest standards of training, care and professionalism. All members adhere to a strict Code of Ethics, Practice and Disciplinary Procedures and are professionally insured. I am the mother of three and love living out in West Auckland.
