My primary modality is Acupuncture, however as an integrative healthcare provider I utilise a wide range of diagnostic and treatment tools including the most up to date scientific research, traditional chinese medicine theory, orthopaedic testing, cupping, moxibustion, tui na massage as well as lifestyle and dietary advice.
How might Acupuncture be able to help you?
I am passionate about empowering people when it comes to their health, promoting wellness throughout the seasons of life. Taking time to understand the root cause of the problem and getting to know your body allows me to tailor your treatments, to get the best results for you.
Menstrual and hormonal disturbances – regulation of hormones, warming and moving blood within the reproductive organs allowing smooth flow during menses, promoting inner ‘zen’ to
Dysmenorrhoea (painful periods)
Irregular menstruation or Amenorrhoea (absence of periods)
Infertility (female) – hormonal imbalance, stress, incorrect diet, as well as underlying reproductive disorders are just some of the reasons why becoming pregnant can be difficult for some couples. Acupuncture promotes the re-balance of key reproductive hormones, improve blood and ‘Qi’ circulation to the reproductive organs and can help to reduce the impact of conditions like endometriosis & PCOS.
Assisted reproductive support – improving the chances of egg implantation by increasing blood supply to the reproductive organs and ensuring the perfect ‘growing’ conditions ahead of embryo implantation and during pregnancy. This can be an emotional time, helping to stay grounded and reduce stress during this period offers the best chance of a positive pregnancy test.
Menopausal symptoms – similar to standard medical intervention, Acupuncture can help to regulate hormones like oestrogen and adrenaline which are significant contributors to the presentation of symptoms relating to menopause. In addition, it can promote relaxation and offer mental clarity during this period of change, alongside
Mood swings, inability to concentrate and fogginess in the head
Loss of libido
Pain and musculoskeletal disorders – with the aim of removing ‘stagnation’ in the body as a result of trauma, ‘wear and tear’ or simple stresses on muscles, tissues and joints. By enhancing energy ‘Qi’ and blood flow throughout the body it can provide an analgesic effect, reduce local inflammation, relieve pressure on neurological and vascular tissues and prevent any further degeneration of joints.
Sciatica & neurological symptoms
Muscular, ligament and tendon stresses
Arthritis and joint pain
Male fertility problems – up to 50% of all infertility cases are thought to be due to male fertility issues, including poor quality and low sperm count. Acupuncture can help to improve both of these things.
Mental and emotional well-being – Anxiety, depression and stress are becoming ever more present and can severely impact day-to-day life. Evidence suggests that changes to levels of neurotransmitters within the brain occur following Acupuncture treatment. More generally, encouraging the re-connection of the mind and body is a fundamental part of managing these symptoms.
Stomach complaints – local analgesic effect on the digestive tract, as well as reducing muscle and intestinal spasm can help to relieve discomfort during bouts of stomach upset. Often triggered by stress and emotional disturbances, counteracting effects of the adrenal response in the body and encouraging smooth flow of energy (Qi) throughout can make Acupuncture a safe and effective option for:
Nausea & vomiting
Headaches & migraines – targeting pain relief to the area of the head by increasing the flow of intracranial and extracranial blood resolving areas of inflammation through the release of chemical transmitters in the brain.
