Amy bio

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 12+ 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 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 of the Noosa Hinterland and surrounds.

 

 

Amy is a Registered Acupuncturist with AHPRA and a full member of AACMA. Health fund rebates are available.

DAVID BALLANTYNE

Doctor of Chinese Medicine
Acupuncturist
Traditional Chinese Massage
Shiatsu & Sports Massage
Trigger Point Therapy
Craniosacral Technique

 

David holds a Bachelor of Health Science in Acupuncture, a Bachelor degree in Biomedical Science and Certification in Traditional Chinese Remedial Massage.

David is an Acupuncture practitioner who incorporates Craniosacral Osteopathic techniques to realign the whole musculoskeletal system and correct spinal vertebrae displacement. He is also trained in Chinese Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Shiatsu and Sports Massage.

 

His belief in the relationship of a body’s well balanced structure to reaching its optimal functional potential is apparent in the treatment. By easing muscular tension, mobilising joints and correcting vertebrae to free blood supply & nerve impulses, the vital organs are best able to respond to the Acupuncture stimulation, bringing the whole system back to health.

BRETT RILEY

Doctor of Osteopathy

 

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. Health fund rebates are available.

ROD CARROLL

Deep Tissue Massage
Pregnancy Massage

Relaxation Massage
Reflexology & Myofacial Cupping

 

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.

 

Health Fund Rebates are available.

SHANI ISAACSON

Doctor of Chinese Medicine
Japanese Acupuncture
Special interest in  Pregnancy, Post Natal, Babies and Children

 

Acupuncturist Shani Isaacson, BHSc (Acu), is a veteran of facilitating and guiding others’ healing journeys.

With 18 years’ experience as a wellness practitioner, her ethos is on treating the whole human, rather than a symptomatic focus. The idea that symptoms have a cause and the body knows how to heal rings true for the way in which Shani tends to her clients.

Thirteen years of Remedial Massage therapy laid a solid foundation for Shani’s career in the healing arts, followed by further studies and application in Reiki, Thai Yoga Massage, Hypnotherapy and Kinesiology. However it was Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture that stopped her search for the complete healing system. In this modality Shani found the answers to her many questions – a medicinethat seemed so magical and contradictory to society’s rational belief, but yet so firmly planted in science, knowledge and thousands of years of results.

Shani followed the call and went on to complete a Bachelor of Health Science in Acupuncture – along with securing a mentorship in one of the Gold Coast’s most reputable acupuncture clinics.

This is where she learnt the ancient art of Japanese Five Element Acupuncture, gifting her a deep understanding and respect for the ancient medicine lineage that is preserved through the alignment of master to student training. Shani became competent and excelled in moxibustion and acupuncture techniques, both of which are highly effective and extremely gentle.

Now settled on the Sunshine Coast, raising her wee family and perfecting her art, Shani remains the perpetual student – consistently refining her skills and furthering her knowledge through in depth self-study, monthly workshops, regular continued professional development seminars and travel to Japan to study under Master Acupuncturist Masakazu Ikeda Sensei.

 

I gently assist my people to restore balance, and maintain health, by resolving imbalances, which may be inhibiting wellness.  ​Happiness and ease really are how you treat your human. I am highly motivated to deliver quality care to my people and provide the highest level of treatment available.I look forward to working with you and sharing my knowledge and skill in such an exciting space and inspirational, purpose driven team.

 

Shani is a member of the Australian Health Practitioners Association (AHPRA), and the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese medicine association (AACMA), and private health fund rebates apply.
