Since opening Acupuncture Holistic Medicine clinic in 2015, I have seen more than 1000 patients and feel privileged to be able to offer a unique approach; one which combines the wisdom and skills of traditional Chinese medicine and clinical experience informed by recent findings coming from research being carried out in clinics all over the world.

I offer treatments that are based on the existing evidence, my training and experience and the experience of doctors working in TCM clinics and hospitals in China over many hundreds of years.

My background and training

In 2014 I graduated from Endeavour College of Natural Health with a Bachelor of Health Science (Acupuncture) degree and Dux medal. In 2017, I completed a Masters of Applied Science (Chinese herbal medicine) degree with Distinction at RMIT. During my studies I traveled to Nanjing, China to go deeper into the study of classical herbal medicine with Professor Huang Huang at his clinic.

From student to teacher the circle continues, and so I began teaching at Endeavour College of Natural Health as a sessional academic lecturer teaching Foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine, TCM Research, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Paediatrics and Advanced Acupuncture Techniques (in 2018), and in semester one 2019 TCM Research and Gynecology.

I’m continuing my passion for learning by continuing my study of Chinese herbal medicine, including classical formulas, diagnosis and pathophysiology according to Shang Han Lun and Jing Gui Yao Lue - both ancient texts that are totally relevant today, with Sharon Weizenbaum as part of the White Pine Healing Institute, two year Graduate Mentorship Program. It’s an incredible professional development opportunity learning from Sharon who has over 30 years experience and a particular interest in gynecology and obstetrics.
