I was lucky enough to come across Classical Five-Element Acupuncture the day before leaving Sydney for a two-year working holiday in Europe. One treatment changed my travel plans the following day, and I flew directly to London. Treatment was like nothing I had ever experienced – I felt better than I ever remembered, which improved my travel experience.
Eventually my curiosity peaked and I trained under the pre-eminent Professor JR Worsley at the first school of Acupuncture in the West, in Leamington Spa. Professor Worsley was an Englishman who had trained as an osteopath and physiotherapist. He came across the difference acupuncture was making to pain during the war which lit a fire in his belly.
After qualifying, I completed extensive post-graduate training in fertility, nutrition, and musculoskeletal pain. My private practice was in Kensington, London for 8 years. I also practiced at the Compass Centre at British Airways providing Acupuncture to ground staff and crew. Success stories have been featured on television, radio, and in many publications including the Sunday Express, London Metro, Red, Zest and Now Magazines.
In 2005, I returned home to establish my practice in Sydney.
With over 20 years of clinical experience, it’s incredibly fulfilling to make such a tangible difference in people’s lives, like what was made to mine all those years ago. I’ve always enjoyed personal development, and have been a voracious researcher around health and personal development. This has given me a depth and breadth of experience enabling me to shortcut people’s journey to wellness where I can. I like functional medicine as an integrated approach to achieve faster and well rounded results.
