Who we are

AcuNZ registered member, ACC treatment provider
BHS - Ac, Dip Tuina-Qigong
 

I have always had an interest in medicine other than the conventional western regime but it wasn't until I was teaching English in South Korea (2001-2002) when I became ill (initially resorting to western medication which didn't work) that a friend took me to a traditional Korean medical doctor who treated me using acupuncture and Korean herbal medicine. Within one 10 day batch of herbs and two acupuncture sessions I was much better and this experience inspired me to enrol at the NZ School of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (NZSATCM) in Wellington.

After graduating with the Diploma of Tuina-Qigong in 2005, I practiced Tuina part time along with work in health stores and Simillimum Homeopathic Pharmacy to help gain understanding of alternative western nutritional methods all the while completing my acupuncture study. The 4 year Diploma in Acupuncture as well as 2 years of the Diploma in Chinese Herbs were completed by the end of 2007 when I became a member of the NZ Register of Acupuncturists (now Acupuncture NZ) and an ACC treatment provider.
Early 2008 I moved to Auckland and built up the practice which is now Ana-Med Acupuncture.

The Acupuncture diploma was transferred to a Bachelor of Health Science - Acupuncture through NZSATCM in Auckland 2012 and I am currently undergoing post graduate study for the Masters in Health Science - Chinese Medicine through the same school.
Over the past 5 years I have also explored Traditional Maori healing through Maorihealers.com and Rongoa with Titoki Education. The Maori medicine has given me a greater understanding and connection with the land in which we live as well as bringing more insight to traditional Chinese medicine and thought.

Having found my passion I find myself redirecting my innate creativity and hands on approach into therapy processes for patients. The medicine, philosophies and qi provide guidance in the clinic, with my intention centred around helping people reach a healthier equilibrium on all levels.
