Acupuncture for Mental Health and Pain Management

I have a clinical focus on mental health, in particular stress and anxiety, depression, and sleep disorders.  I have had a long history working in this area as a social worker, and alongside my Bachelor of Psychology, I understand the effects that long term stress and depression can have on a person. Treating holistically, I work with patients to address the deep-seated aspects of their condition, allowing them to move from dis-ease to living fully and in vibrant health.

Chronic and acute pain management is another area of focus for me. From sports injuries and accidents, through to chronic conditions like lower back pain, nerve pain, or arthritic conditions, I work to reduce your pain and get you back to living life the way you want to.

I’m an experienced and flexible practitioner, using techniques from Chinese medicine including acupuncture, cupping, heat therapy, and herbal medicine. I work from a holistic perspective, taking into account all aspects of your life when developing an individual treatment plan. This allows for healing at a deeper level, rather than just treating symptoms.

I work from Essendon Natural Health, at 187 Buckley St, servicing patients in Essendon and surrounding suburbs: Moonee Ponds, Ascot Vale, Glenroy, Oak Park, Pascoe Vale, Flemington, Brunswick, Brunswick West, Keilor East, Avondale Heights, Airport West, Tullamarine, and others.
