Having been a practitioner for over 15 years and working with many other modalities including chiropractic, naturopathy, kinesiology and massage, Heidi strongly believes and understands the holistic approach works best.

Since completing her Bachelor of Health Science (BHSc) degree in Acupuncture, Anthea has had additional experience in the field of female health and fertility with practical training in IVF and IUI support. She endeavours to work closely with gynaecologists and obstetricians to receive the best results for the client and understands how acupuncture can also be used for pregnancy and post-pregnancy care.

By fortunate chance, whilst living in Tasmania, Megan detected her love for the Chinese language and culture. Whilst studying, Megan received a scholarship to study at a university in Taiwan for a semester, which led to her graduation with a diploma of Chinese Language in 2013. From there, her interest in Chinese Philosophy and Chinese Medicine peaked. She found her lifelong belief in natural health was reflected beautifully in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Next to her acupuncture studies, Megan travelled to China to practice alongside Chinese Medicine Doctors at the hospital of Nanning.
