About Us

AMY RHODES (STEINBECK)

*Amy is currently only taking fertility and and specialised women’s health patients. She has personally hand picked well known acupuncturist  Trent Banyan to join the healing team and share his knowledge and experience.

Doctor of Chinese Medicine (BHSc-Acu)
Registered Acupuncturist
Special interest in Hormone Balancing & Natural Fertility Solutions

Amy is an experienced and compassionate Doctor of Chinese Medicine with a special interest in balancing hormones, enhancing natural fertility both for couples and singles, IVF support and supporting pregnancy.
Over the past ten years that Amy has been a practicing Acupuncturist, she has continued to develop her skills and knowledge in the fertility field. Having recognised that a lot of fertility specialists focus on the woman’s health and get good results, she felt like the parameters could be improved and so she started to expand her treatments to include the partner and saw her success rates increase dramatically. By expanding this knowledge to support the couple (or single with donor) who are trying to conceive and combining practises to enhance the relationship with self and each other, she gets results that:
  • improve the health of the individual, woman or man
  • improve the relationship between two people increasing the likelihood of staying together to raise the children that they desire
  • making better parents
  • making better children / human beings
Amy has a reputation with local Medical Practitioners as “The Baby maker”. She does this by helping her patients to reconnect with their own body, helping them to learn and understand it. She encourages her patients to become active participants in their own healing and in returning themselves to an optimal level of health through education and body and spirit awareness.
Amy helps women gain balance in their menstrual cycles, hormones, emotions and lifestyle to bring about profound healing and to enable her patients achieve their health goals. She works alongside couples on their journey towards becoming parents by helping women achieve pregnancy, carry to full-term and birth healthy babies. Amy also offers ART and IVF support. As a mother of two and having had her own difficult journey towards motherhood, she brings compassion and understanding to her consultations.
Amy is available for private Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture and sessions in her beautiful clinic in the Noosa Hinterland town of Cooroy on the Sunshine Coast as well as by phone or Skype. She is also currently creating some online Fertility Foundation Programs to broaden the scope of her practise, offering her knowledge and expertise to a wider community.
As the founder of Maple Street Acupuncture and Natural Medicine, Amy strives to bring an optimal level of healthcare to the community or the Noosa Hinterland and surrounds.
Amy is a Registered Acupuncturist with AHPRA and a full member of AACMA.
VANESSA DOYLE

Naturopathic Doctor
Doctor of Chinese Medicine
Acupuncturist

Combining her love of Natural Medicine and the knowledge of the bodies innate ability to heal itself, it was only logical to combine her Naturopathic training with a Masters of Science Degree in Acupuncture.

She has extensive experience in hormonal dys-regulation, fatigue, digestive disturbances, sleep Disharmony, musculoskeletal pain relief and overall general well being, to name a few.

Dr. Vanessa Doyle was trained in Naturopathic Medicine in the USA at the University of Bridgeport (one of only five accredited schools in the USA). The training was attained through 4 years of Naturopathic Medical Doctoral level training, and once becoming NPLEX Board Certified entitled Dr. Doyle to practice as a Naturopathic Physician in the state of Connecticut.

Although here in Australia, there is no equivalent to the Naturopathic Physician standing as in the USA, Vanessa looks forward to using her cumulative knowledge and skills in providing her patients with the best possible Naturopathic treatment plan.

Having had the privilege of studying and working clinically with Dr. Peter D’Adamo (Naturopathic Physician and author of Eat Right For Your Type and Change your Genetic Destiny) her practice is geared to understanding and delivering personalised medicine.

Holding a certificate in massage therapy (Medical Arts Massage School, Raleigh, NC, USA) and previous experience in Exercise and Sport Science (Bachelors degree from University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC, USA) her understanding of anatomy and physiology assists in utilising a variety of techniques to help clients reach their goals.

Vanessa Doyle is a member of ANTA (Australian Natural Therapies Association) as well as registered with AHPRA (Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency) which is the governing board of Acupuncturists in Australia.

 

As a Doctor of Osteopathic medicine, Brett has a holistic approach, which means he considers all aspects of a patients life and history. This approach formulates an accurate individual picture to best treat each person and their body’s needs. He is passionate about helping patients be truly healthy in body and mind, not just free of symptoms.

Brett believes that healthcare is often too complicated and works hard to ensure patients understand ‘how’ and ‘why’ their body works the way it does. This ensures patients can better manage themselves and not rely solely on outside interventions. General ongoing Osteopathic care aims to support the whole body not just the treatment of symptoms.

simple and empowering

Osteopathy is a five-year university course, which includes a bachelors degree and masters qualification. Senior Osteopathy students complete clinical training under the supervision of registered Osteopaths at university teaching clinics. In addition to this training, Brett has worked overseas in private orthopaedic hospitals where he has been the supervising Osteopath in Osteopathic rehabilitation departments as well as supervising Australian students under going overseas placements.

In 2014, Brett moved to Cooroy from Melbourne in search of a tree change. He is a relaxed, easy going, and friendly guy. Brett utilises many different techniques, such as a biodynamic approach to cranial osteopathy, muscle energy technique, counterstrain and soft tissue manipulation among others.

Brett is an Osteopath who treats anyone from adults, young children, pregnant women and babies, the elderly and everyone in between. Brett’s logical, thorough and non-invasive approach, can treat many issues without the use of medicine. Pain from old or new injuries, headaches, neck or back pain, post surgical rehabilitation, even low energy levels or broken or ineffective sleep can all benefit from osteopathic care. Keeping patients healthy is key, not just treating symptoms.

Brett is a fully registered Osteopath with AHPRA.

ROD CARROLL

Massge: remedial, sports, deep tissue,
relaxation, pregnancy, reflexology

Rod believes he is just a normal man with average schooling who was living day to day defending himself in the fight of life, until he decided to make a change and take a step into the unknown.

Based on his belief that we are absolutely called to honour our heart and soul to do what we love and to use our gifts, he took a risk and listened to the voice within urging him to follow his heart. He spent the next period of his life back at school, studying towards a Diploma in Remedial and Massage Therapies.

His Journey has turned into a career in helping others. Finding his purpose has been one of the most rewarding discoveries in his life. Rod feels it’s great to find something he’s both gifted at and that feeds his spirit while at the same time helping other heal.

Sonseea also believes she has a gift in really listening to what her client needs.

Robyn is a born and breed local Cooroy girl who has a passion for helping women transform. She is a qualified Life and Wellness Coach, Yoga Teacher and IRONMAN Certified Coach who believes women are amazingly strong but that sometimes need a little help and support in their journeys.

 

Robyn spent her 20s in the military and suffering from addictions. Her 30s were spent travelling, transforming and becoming the woman she wanted to be. She was supported along the way by so many amazing women that she now helps other women.

 

The Life and Wellness coaching can be combined or coached separately depending on the client’s needs. Robyn’s approach to coaching is a holistic 360 client lead approach.  Everyone’s circumstances are different but the coaching process is easily adaptable to all situations. Coaching is dynamic and transformational. Determining your values, vision, purpose and goals you create steps to achieving the extraordinary.

 

Working with a Coach is not a ‘Soft Option’. The coaching process allows you the space you require to stop, evaluate your life and create the life you want.  Robyn holds the space for you to be vulnerable, challenged and inspired!

Miriam is a ZenThai Shiatsu therapist, who practices from a place of deep listening, to create a safe and nourishing environment where the dynamic needs of the body are met, moment to moment.

ZenThai Shiatsu weaves together elements of Zen Shiatsu, Thai massage and Osteopathic techniques, in a therapeutic flow that is unique to each body.  A ZenThai Shiatsu experience includes joint mobilization, fascia unwinding and releasing muscular tension and energetic blockages.

ZenThai Shiatsu addresses both structural and energetic issues including lower back pain, digestive complaints and immune imbalances.

With a profound respect for the body’s innate healing abilities, Miriam focuses on making space, rather than ‘fixing a problem’.  In this way, the body gently guides itself toward wholeness, encouraging healing on a fundamental level.

Through conscious touch, Miriam aims to remind the body of its healing potential and power.  In trusting that the body knows what to do, a sense of total acceptance, freedom and flow forms the basis of her practice.
