She also worked as an Acupuncturist for twelve years in a local Womens’ Health Centre, and is very familiar with a wide range of issues and conditions that are specific to women.

An approach to Health
A wholistic approach encompasses the view that the body, mind, emotions and spirit are inter-connected. One of the strengths of Chinese Medicine is its understanding of these dynamic relationships and  the recognition of patterns of imbalance. Thus all treatments by Suzanne are individualised, whether you have a digestive, muscular/skeletal, respiratory, gynaecological problem or pain, stress-related or any other condition and/or group of symptoms.

Treatments are also very effective in increasing vitality and optimising the wellbeing of people who are generally healthy.

Clinic Information
Clinic times are by arranged appointment only.
Before and after business hours or on weekends can sometimes be available.  Phone  (02) 6687 5636.

What is a Chinese Medicine session?
Chinese Medicine uses a number of techniques to diagnose what imbalances are occurring in the individual, so besides some personal details, information is gathered at the beginning by asking, listening, observing and palpating relevant areas.

Discussion of the findings follows with negotiation on appropriate methods (eg Acupuncture) for treatment of the presenting condition and then given.

If you want, your session with Suzanne can also include information on living practices such as incorporating exercise, breathing and Qigong practices, herbal use, diet modification, postural body usage, exploring your mental/emotional outlook and lifestyle or using Acupoints at home.
If you choose to include any of these suggestions in your daily life, you will find yourself gaining and sustaining a healthy balance quicker. 

Check-ups, Wellness sessions and private Qigong/Tai Chi/ Meditation classes, generally include relevant techniques/ strategies that are offered above.
