BHSc (Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine)
Jodi is a graduate of Southern School of Natural Therapies, achieving a Bachelor of Health Science (Chinese Medicine). She is registered with the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia and is a Member of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA).
Jodi has always been passionate about health and wellness with the aim of preventing disease using a holistic, natural approach wherever possible. Her passion for Chinese medicine grew from her own first-hand experiences over a ten-year period, living and working in Asia. Of particular interest to Jodi is the Chinese medicine philosophy of treating the root of a disease or ailment, as opposed to the symptoms, and its ability to support the body’s intrinsic healing capability to restore it to a natural state of balance.
A session with Jodi will include establishing the underlying root cause of any disharmony that may be presenting physically or emotionally within the body. This is done through traditional methods of discussion, palpation, tongue and pulse diagnosis. Subsequent treatment will depend on the patient’s individual needs but may include a combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine, cupping, moxibustion, tui na (Chinese massage), Chinese medicine food therapy and lifestyle advice. Jodi also offers facial (cosmetic) acupuncture supported by underlying constitutional treatments.
