Rachel has a passion for the human mind and body, with all treatments encompassing the understanding that the mind and body are inextricably connected, and the effects that this can have on health and wellbeing. Through identifying these connections within her patients, Rachel aims to deliver acupuncture treatments that help facilitate the natural tendency towards balance and harmony through self-regulation and increased self-efficacy.
Prior to pursuing a career as a Chinese Medicine Acupuncturist, Rachel was a Personal Trainer assisting clients with an array of health goals including injury prevention, weight loss, emotional wellbeing and mental performance. It was during Rachel’s fitness career and years spent as a competing athlete when she experienced first hand the powerful benefits of Acupuncture for sporting injuries and pain relief. It was also during Rachel's fitness career that she recognised the power behind thoughts, emotions and the driving ability they have on health issues like weight loss/gain, hormonal imbalances, menstrual cycle imbalances, stress, addictions, pain, injuries and mental wellbeing.
Spending time alone can have profound positive effects on your life and wellbeing. It allows us to see what's missing from our life and helps identify changes that need to be made. Alone time away from responsibilities, phones and the external world allows us to keep connected to our own internal world, our true sense of self. This allows for reflection on our inner most thoughts and helps enhance self-awareness, similar to how Buddhists have practiced mindfulness for centuries. Solitude provides peace and quiet to think deep, analyse abilities, unlock curiosity and gain better self understanding and wellbeing during this lifetime.
