About Me and My Practice
I am a Physiotherapist with a specialisation in Acupuncture. I am currently teaching for the University of Otago postgraduate acupuncture course and the Physiotherapy Acupuncture Association of New Zealand (PAANZ).
I practice both traditional forms of acupuncture, including Manaka and Toyohari, and Western acupuncture, including trigger point release.
I have completed a postgraduate diploma and a Master's endorsed in acupuncture. I work in the area of Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy and also have an interest in the area of Women's Health.
