What is Acupuncture?
About

As a Doctor of Chinese Medicine I draw upon my in-depth knowledge over the last 10 years to carefully select the particular aspect or technique of TCM that each patient requires. During this process I hope to educate them in the TCM disease process to actively engage them in their own healing process. This of course is dependent on many factors, not simply the current disease but also the physical, emotional and environmental demands on my patients. In this way we can see that a person is the sum total of all of their parts, therefore we will work together, as a team, to help you care for your body and live at your optimal potential.

My skills as a TCM practitioner have been steadied by my last 11 years of yoga teaching where I have been working with people and dis-ease through empowering people to better understand their body and begin their own healing journey.

Wellbeing and Energy Balancing

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), including acupuncture, is indeed an intricate and almost poetic system with a unique perspective on the human body, distinct from Western science. It operates on the concept of rebalancing energy, or “qi,” which flows through meridians and plays a crucial role in health. Drawing parallels and comparisons between TCM and Western medicine can help bridge the gap in understanding, both for practitioners like myself and for clients who have embraced this beautiful healing modality.

Acupuncture, a key component of TCM, seeks to harmonize the body’s energy by delicately inserting needles into specific points. This practice is believed to unblock meridians, restore the balance of yin and yang energies, stimulate the body’s innate healing mechanisms, and regulate organ function by targeting precise acupuncture points.

Fertility

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) offers holistic approaches to improve fertility. It focuses on regulating menstrual cycles, enhancing egg and sperm quality, reducing stress, balancing hormones, promoting blood circulation, addressing underlying health issues, and supporting overall well-being. TCM can complement Western medical treatments for fertility but should be used in consultation with healthcare professionals. Its effectiveness varies among individuals, and ongoing research explores its benefits.

Body pain

As an acupuncturist, my approach to alleviating pain and rehabilitating injuries is comprehensive, incorporating acupuncture/dry needling alongside advanced techniques such as trigger point release, motor point muscle activation, and the application of high-intensity laser therapy. This integrative approach seeks to harmonize the body’s energy flow, release muscle tension, optimize joint function, diminish pain signals, and fortify weakened muscles, offering a well-rounded solution for relief.

These conditions are commonly addressed by Truth, among others:

  • Low Back Pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Headaches
  • TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) Pain
  • Hip Pain
  • Knee Pain

What is a Nutritionist?

Elly is a qualified nutritionist with over 16 years’ experience working in the industry, both in compounding laboratories formulating individualised medicines as well as in private practice. She loves working with children (from infants to young adults) and supporting women with diet and nutrition before, during and after pregnancy. Elly has a special interest in cancer prevention and has worked closely with cancer patients, offering them dietary support during their treatment journey and beyond. 

Elly has also been educated in the treatment of other conditions, which mainstream medicine can struggle to resolve, such as anxiety and depression, brain fog, fertility issues, mould illness, systemic and gut inflammation, digestive disorders and gut dysbiosis.

“Over the years I have encountered various little battles with my own health, which has helped to educate and shape me into the practitioner I am today.

I have a passion for gut health and diet and optimal nutrition before, during and after pregnancy, baby weaning and in children’s health, and understand these can be quite challenging stages of life. I have been blessed with two beautiful children of my own, and so I have experienced first-hand the difficulties encountered and the time management skills required to maintain wellness during these times.

Working with one of Australia’s largest compounding laboratories has given me a thorough understanding of how to formulate individualised medicines. It has also allowed me to receive specialised training in the treatment of children with autism spectrum disorders, including ADD/ADHD. I have also been educated in the treatment of other conditions, which mainstream medicine can struggle to resolve.

Life is the most incredible gift, especially whilst in good health. I would welcome the opportunity to help guide you through the sometimes confusing, yet thoroughly rewarding journey to optimal health and wellness.”
