Clinic Founder & Director
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 and birthing preparation.

 

Over the past 13+ years that Amy has been a practicing Acupuncturist, she has continued to develop her skills and knowledge, especially in the fertility field, becoming a valued contributor in the global field of fertility with mentors such a Randine Lewis, Kirsten Wolfe and Janine Ma-Ree . Her position in the field of fertility has brought Amy to the become both guest speaker and facilitator for International Symposiums on Womens Health & Fertility. With over a decade of understanding accumulating in Chinese Medicine Amy has become the solutions to your situations. 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 began 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
  • Supporting healthier, more conscious parents.
  • Supporting healthier 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 as well as 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 to 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 & Acupuncture 1:1 sessions as well as by phone. 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.

Cerise enjoys living a simple life with a passion for helping other people heal through the touch of massage.

 

Her studies in manual therapy began when she was a fitness instructor. She would see how people would over extend themselves on the sports field and believed that there had to be a better way to treat the injuries than relying on pharmaceutical medicine.

 

Cerise uses her understanding of what actions are used in movement, coupled with the muscles incorporated in the action, to treat injuries and areas of concern.
