Natalie has been running her successful acupuncture clinic for over 25 years, treating people from all walks of life, with a broad range of conditions. While she is excellent at resolving common issues such as back pain, she has a keen interest in and has had much success working with difficult cases unresponsive to many modalities, autoimmune disease (as a life-long Type 1 Diabetic, Natalie has a personal interest as well as first hand experience with autoimmune disease), fertility and psycho-emotional conditions.
In addition to her private clinic, Natalie has lectured in Acupuncture and Massage courses with Endeavour College and the Australasian College of Natural Therapies for 10 years on a range of subjects, including Differential Diagnosis (Chinese Medicine), Student Acupuncture Clinic Mentoring, Musculoskeletal Conditions, Paediatrics, Gynaecology, Fertility, Food as Medicine, Counselling, Botany and more.
Today she teaches in private settings alongside her yogi-healer partner, Briellen McAlpine, leading courses and workshops together in areas of Meditation, Sound & Mantra, and Natalie’s great passion, Gut Health. All these courses are designed to equip people with deeper understanding and fast acting effective tools for self-healing, cohesion and wellness from within. These courses have been developed by Natalie and Brie together, bringing together the very best of their wisdom and experience in Chinese Medicine, Western Science, Kundalini Yoga and Meditation.
