Emma had a difficult upbringing, riddled with anxiety and health issues, and as a young adult she started to understand the impact years of stress had taken on her body, eventually diagnosed with several chronic pain conditions.
Searching for answers and while working as a massage therapist in Kalgoorlie, WA, Emma discovered Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture and nutritional values, which lead to a five year love affair of studying in Melbourne
at The Southern School of Natural Therapies, Fitzroy.
During her last years of study Emma also become one of only 60 practitioners in Australia to complete a Post-Graduate Diplomacy with Dr Arnaud Versluys, a world renowned Classical Chinese Medicine teacher.
As her passion expanded, Emma finally opened her own clinic, Healesville Chinese Medicine in early 2014.
With her background and love of helping others as her motivation, Emma knows how hard the process can be to pull yourself back from chronic physical and emotional pain. She also knows that it can be done to positive effect, and as you will see after your first appointment, Emma is very passionate about offering to others what she herself had to search for:
a doctor that will do as much as possible to give you the information and guidance needed for consistent good health.
Drawing from her training in Classical and Traditional Chinese Medicine, as well as her many years of working alongside other practitioners such as chiropractors, osteopaths, counselors and psychologists, Emma mostly focuses on mental health conditions; specifically anxiety, depression, trauma recovery, and PTSD, as well as chronic stress.
She also has a particular interest in treating women's health, children's health and chronic pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia, MS, arthritis, endometriosis, headaches and migraines, injury and trauma scarring and frozen shoulder, but Emma will endevour to assist any patient who comes through the door needing help.
