Sometimes, we find ourselves facing challenges that are bigger than we are able to understand or navigate on our own. At any stage after a cancer diagnosis, you may experience times of distress and feel a range of strong emotions, such as disbelief, fear, anxiety, anger, and sadness. You may also experience loss, such as the loss of good health, temporary or permanent changes to your appearance, not being able to work or do your normal activities, changed finances, a loss of independence or a change in your relationships. The therapeutic process can help you to make sense of, adapt to, and heal from difficult life experiences and I am trained in, and draw upon, a range of evidence-based therapies to better meet your needs.
A referral is not essential for you to receive Di’s services, however if you speak to your GP about your concerns, you may be eligible to attend under a Mental Health Care Plan. This will allow you to receive a Medicare rebate for a portion of your therapy costs.

I’m a classically trained Acupuncturist and have studied both Japanese Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Among my degrees I hold a Bachelor of Health Science in Acupuncture and have many years experience.
Some of my adventures in acupuncture include a semester at Guangxi Traditional Chinese Medical University in 2009, where I completed internships in three of China’s public hospitals across all departments. In 2016 I also spent 6 months living in Mumbai. Part of my weekly routine involved volunteering at the Barefoot Acupuncture Clinic in Dharavi, which is India’s largest slum area. I have been to India many times over the years, always staying with the same family, but that experience really touched my heart.
The style of Acupuncture I practice is gentle and painless. My intention is to assist clients on their path to health and well-being using a holistic approach to support the body’s innate healing abilities physically, mentally, and emotionally.
If you are interested in acupuncture and how it can assist you on your path, then I would love to have a chat with you, and please - call me Jo.
