Natalie has been running her successful acupuncture clinic for over 20 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 through her partners yoga studio – Spirit Rising Yoga – where Natalie and Brie lead courses in Sound Healing and Meditation (‘Good Vibes”) to help equip people with deeper understanding and fast acting yet effective tools for self-healing, cohesion and wellness. This is a course that Natalie and Brie developed together, blending their wisdom and experience in Chinese Medicine, Western Science, Kundalini Yoga and Meditation.
