(BHSc- TCM- Acup, BHSc, Cert CHM)
Rebecca completed a Bachelor of Health Sciences (Hons) in traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture in 2000. She is an experienced practitioner having worked in a wide variety of clients but finds her passion working in the field of fertility and women’s health. Rebecca has supported many families through preconception, pregnancies and the births of their children. Many women have gone into early labour in our practice after acupuncture induction!
Being well accustomed to the treatment and management of a variety of musculoskeletal injuries and complaints after having worked within chiropractic and multidisciplinary clinics, Rebecca sees various conditions of emotional health, digestive disorders, sleep disorders and chronic pain (including migraines and headaches). Rebecca is passionate about the use of acupuncture for maintaining health and preventing illness, about ensuring the body is working at its best and performing well to create a sense of wellbeing and happiness.
She has travelled widely and has experienced and applied the traditional medicines of ayuvedic and Tibetan medicine and lived in Taiwan for two and a half years to experience the use of Traditional Chinese Medicine within the culture from which it originated. She prides herself on the ability to create a safe and comfortable environment to discuss any issues, and welcome those new to the ability of acupuncture with sensitivity and gentleness. She respects the perception that it is an invasive and perhaps painful medicine and approaches her treatments with the gratitude of the client’s trust and understanding, treating the client gently and carefully to make the session incredibly comfortable. She prides herself on this fact, and welcomes even the most needle shy.
Rebecca is a member of Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA) and is registered with Australian Health Practitioners Association (AHPRA).
