COVID update from the Department of Heath and Human Services as of October 19th 2020
I am now able to provide face-to-face routine and preventative care at the clinic.
I shall continue to follow the safety guidelines intended to ensure a COVID Safe
environment in the clinic.
- Added hygiene measures continue to be maintained at the clinic, with door handles, pens, and surfaces sanitised throughout the day.
- Patient appointment times are spaced apart so physical distancing is maintained.
- Properly fitted face masks must be worn by everyone entering the clinic.
Digestive Disorders – is where my interest lie
While I treat a broad range of conditions ranging from gynaecological, respiratory, immune, to muscular, my particular area of interest and experience is in the treatment of digestive conditions with common symptoms such as abdominal bloating, distention, flatulence, abdominal cramps, and irregular bowels. Ultimately, these symptoms are linked to poor absorption, affecting nutritional balance, energy, weight and glucose- insulin levels, and far more. For women these symptoms are often exacerbated around the menstrual cycle.
No matter what symptoms you are seeking treatment for, the key to any benefit from acupuncture and herbal medicine is in the diagnosis, and in understanding the link between the symptoms and the underlying cause. Clear communication including a discussion of how you can improve your day-to-day health decisions is an essential part of the overall treatment.
