After studying Psychology, travelling the globe, working in the corporate world as a senior business analyst, acquiring her Reiki Masters, studying massage, discovering yoga, then moving into the not-for-profit world of Outward Bound Australia she not only ‘found herself’ but found Traditional Chinese Medicine. She read an article on Acupuncture and Chinese medical theory and had one of those ‘light bulb’ moments and after her first acupuncture session she was hooked!

Melinda uses a very gentle and integrative approach to support her clients in all facets of general health. She likes to collaborate and combine the best of traditional natural therapies and modern conventional medicine to achieve the best outcome for her clients. Her areas of special interest and experience include women’s health, male and female fertility, pre-conception and IVF support, pregnancy and postpartum care, and paediatrics.
