What do you do? 

I’m a Registered Chinese Medicine Practitioner/Acupuncturist ~ supporting women throughout all stages in their lives ~ hormone balancing, preconception care, pregnancy ailments & postpartum care


Women need to support women ~ I felt lost when I was pregnant & and had a newborn,  ` feeling too much pressure from everybody around me. With no idea who to ask or turn for real help or support. That’s why it’s so close to my heart that we have great support networks in place to make sure we can feel empowered and make the right decisions for ourselves and our babies. 

What does a typical appointment look like?

The Initial Session is for one hour – we have a chat about your concerns and why you came in to see me. Then I will explain treatment options which mostly includes Needling or Cupping. Often I’ll give some “homework” – this can be stretches, Akupressur Points for you to massage or general lifestyle tips & tricks…..

What are the 3 most common problems/complaints you encounter with pregnant and new mums?

What are your 3 best tips for pregnant and new mums?
