About Rachel

Through gentle and relaxing acupuncture and other Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques, my aim is to help you consistently move upwards towards your health goals. I am extremely passionate about the work I do, and enjoy seeing people fulfill their potential through acupuncture and Chinese medicine.

I work with only one patient per session so you get my full attention and time. Previous to my training I lived and traveled extensively overseas, including Asia where I lived for 3 years. These wonderful years combined with my interest in natural health and Asian philosophy brought me to the art of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture.

I am a member of FACT – Fertility and Acupuncture Childbirth Team.
FACT is a group of Wellington acupuncturists who have a special interest in both public awareness and personal on-going education of TCM and acupuncture’s role in fertility and pregnancy healthcare. www.fact.net.nz .

I have over 10 years experience and have previously worked at Fertility Associates in an acupuncture capacity. I also currently facilitate antenatal classes. As well as Chinese Herbal medicine, I am a registered practitioner for Proherb and Metagenics.
