At Dantian Health I provide treatments to help you reclaim your health and vitality with Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture in Brunswick, Melbourne.
I work with you when your state of wellbeing prevents you living how you desire. With the wisdom of Chinese medicine and tools such as acupuncture and Chinese herbs, I assist you to fulfil your journey towards better health and wellbeing. Together we will work to remove the blockages to your body restoring health, and find ways in which you can maintain a better state of well being.
The challenge of having health struggles often goes beyond the immediate symptoms, to the broader effect it has on your life. Physical pain can prevent us from being able to actively play with our (grand)children, digestive upsets can hinder our ability to enjoy eating out with friends, menstrual irregularities may impair fertility and impact our desire to have a family and the consequence of poor sleep plays out in our energy and ability to focus clearly through the day.
The body has an innate ability to heal. It reveals what it needs through subtle visual and textural signs. These manifestations reflect the underlying imbalances which prevent your body from returning to a state of wellness.
I am a qualified and registered acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist, also holding qualifications in Tuina (Chinese remedial massage) and Shiatsu and Oriental Therapies. I have advanced training in two specific lineages of practice, Nagano lineage acupuncture and Tian lineage Chinese Herbal medicine. Both of these styles focus on observing the subtle clues indicating the underlying pattern of imbalance through palpation of the pulse and body. This allows for specific treatment to be given to address the current state of your body, as well as monitor the response to treatment to accurately modify my approach.
