Q: What got you into doing what you do?

For as long as I can remember I’ve been interested in complementary medicines, and seeking extra treatment options for common conditions. After having acupuncture for headaches and neck pain and getting almost instantaneous results, I was very intrigued and this ignited my interest in Chinese Medicine. Shortly after starting my studies I was hooked, I’d found something that fit my ethos! The holistic philosophy of Chinese Medicine allows a treatment approach which captures and considers a broad range of factors including physical presentation, mental-emotional wellbeing, dietary intake, and environmental influences. This unique concept of Chinese Medicine can offer a clear picture to what often seems blurred, allowing a dynamic treatment approach while supporting all concerns, and any extras along the way.. This is why I love what I do!

 

Q: What do you like doing when you are not at work?

Connecting with friends and family; being from New Zealand I try to make a few visits a year. I have two nieces and two nephews and am “Aunty Sim” to many friend’s children, which I adore. Getting in touch with nature, going on bush walks or heading to the beach to put my feet in the sand is where I feel most relaxed. Otherwise I’m kept pretty happy with a good real-life documentary, face mask and a sleep in 🙂
