    Passion:

    A mum with a passion to educate and guide people to discover and live their own unique happy and healthy life. Kim initially became a Naturopath because she wanted to be able to care for her family and is now passionate about caring for you and your family.

    Kim has always had a strong desire to care for people and has seen firsthand how powerful natural medicine can be.  Physical, mental and emotional pain and discomfort is the body trying to tell you that something in your body is imbalanced and there is a need to care for you. Balance is obtained when nutritional, physical, mental, emotional and energetic needs are being met.

    Kim will help to identify the underlying cause of your conditions and guide you on a health journey you didn’t even know existed!

    Kim regularly attends conferences and seminars on natural medicine topics and enjoys continually expanding her knowledge through courses she completes.

    Kim loves to read, meditate, spending time in nature, yoga, outdoor recreations, learning and chooses to surround herself with positive, inspiring and uplifting people. So if you are ready to make a change book an appointment with Kim and let the journey begin!

    “When you surrender to what is meant to happen and not force it… amazing things transpire and happen.” – Lisa Williams.

    I am passionate about health and wellbeing and to maintain this throughout life. I am particularly passionate about women’s health and to provide individual acupuncture treatments that are tailored to the client. The basis of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is on the prevention of disease and to assist the body to maintain equilibrium and balance. I use a combination of Acupuncture, herbs and lifestyle (yang sheng) changes to assist the body in maintaining optimum health and helping people to achieve the best health outcomes possible.
