Jodi is passionate about health and wellness. With a Bachelor of Health Science (Chinese Medicine), she follows 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.
She is especially interested in women’s health, reducing stress and anxiety, and cosmetic acupuncture, although she is just as happy treating sore muscles and neck tension or coughs and allergies.
Jodi uses a range of techniques such as palpation, tongue and pulse diagnosis to establish the underlying cause of any disharmony that presents physically or emotionally within the body.
Treatments 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.
