Melissa Chivers- Acupuncture, Cupping, Moxibustion, Chinese Herbal Medicine
Educated and accredited in both Traditional Chinese Medicine and Pilates, I have a unique integrative approach to making sure you are your best self. I first fell in love with TCM back in 2011 when I was having regular treatments and feeling the subtle yet powerful effects of Acupuncture.
I have experience working with womens health conditions and pregnancy along with musculoskeletal pain, stress and anxiety through working in a busy community clinic.
I have worked closely with midwifes to provide support to women in pregnancy for breech presentation, pain, stress, anxiety, fatigue, reflux, nausea and labour preparation.
I have worked closely with women through many stages of their fertility journey, from those who are working to re-balance their hormones and cycles, women who want to prepare their bodies for conception and women who are undergoing IVF.
I believe everyone deserves optimum care within an integrated healthcare network. I approach my clients with warmth, compassion and a medically integrative perspective. I enjoy working with my clients to increase feelings of wellbeing, restoring the body back to a place where it is able to perform at it’s optimum level.
What Acupuncture Is:
If our body is not functioning as well as it should be, or if we are in pain or feeling Ill, Traditional Chinese Medicine considers the body’s system to be out of balance.
Acupuncture treats and relieves illnesses and pain, by restoring the body’s normal function, and bringing the body back into balance.
Acupuncture treats a vast array of conditions: Pain and inflammation, sports injuries, sleep and mood disorders, neurological disorders, women’s health, men’s health, energy levels, digestive issues, immune support and many more.
