Hello I’m Sandy, your practitioner.
You are here because you need help with an ongoing health issue… Yes?
I love assisting people with their health issues & helping them improve their general sense of well-being. I have treated a wide range of ailments in my practice.
I began my career in health care over 20 years ago as a nurse. I have always enjoyed working in healthcare. I worked in aged care, public hospitals, community nursing & day surgery. In my 20’s I discovered Chinese medicine because my GP at the time was also a Chinese medicine practitioner & she suggested the use of acupuncture & herbs. I had suffered chronic throat infections since childhood & she prescribed herbs that stopped the throat infections within the first day. Over time, my immunity built up & I stopped getting frequent infections. This was the first spark of interest for me in Chinese medicine.
I am continuously amazed by the efficacy of Chinese Medicine. If we listen to our bodies & treat it as a whole; and if we put in the time & energy required for true healing, we can expect great results. We live in a busy, modern world where people expect immediate results for very little input but this expectation doesn’t translate to the energy of the human body. The healing of the body & mind is a process, & it requires our love & attention.
Pain & ill-health is our body/mind SCREAMING for attention.
Let’s reclaim our trust in our innate ability to heal!
Having said that, I do value western medicine & ‘Integrative Medicine’. I don’t consider my work to be “Alternative Medicine”. I believe that our healthcare system will benefit greatly if all modalities can work together in an integrative healthcare setting to achieve the best possible outcomes for patients.
I am a qualified, university trained Chinese Medicine Practitioner with a Bachelor of Health Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine from The University of Technology Sydney.
Personal life journey so far….
I have practiced meditation for over 25 years & I enjoy a daily spiritual practice. I appreciate balance in all things. Chinese Medicine encompasses this balance in its approach to treatment and preventative health care.
I look forward to assisting you on your journey to wellness.
