    Yana is a nationally registered acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist, with a double degree Bachelor of Health Science/Bachelor of Applied Science (Chinese Medicine), which she received with Distinction. Yana is committed to providing results-focused healthcare for women, and has experience working with gynaecological conditions, female fertility, and pregnancy/perinatal care.

    Yana is a warm and caring practitioner, and takes a holistic approach to women’s health. Yana recognises the impact factors such as stress, dietary and lifestyle habits can have on hormonal & reproductive health, and combines her knowledge of traditional Chinese medicine with a biomedical understanding of the body, to provide her clients with holistic healthcare.

    Yana’s treatments and treatment plans are always individualised to suit each woman’s unique health needs. Treatment plans may involve acupuncture and/or individually compounded Chinese herbal prescriptions, and sometimes other traditional Chinese medical modalities such as moxibustion and cupping. Treatments are non-invasive – meaning you will usually remain fully clothed, with most points located on the arms, legs, hands and feet (even for gynaecological issues).

    • Menstrual pain and menstrual issues
    • Female fertility (including IVF/IUI support)
