She practices both Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture as well as using Cupping, Moxabustion and massage.

With a strong background in medical science, Julia is able to incorporate her understanding of pathology testing within the context of the holistic framework of Chinese medicine.

Julia’s approach to treatment, first and foremost, starts with a compassionate ear and a passion to bring you back to your ultimate health status.

She believes in attentive and compassionate listening, so that what you have to say is heard and you feel cared for and understood as an individual. Julia also includes diet advice and therapy in her consultations.

Areas of Special Interest

Julia has a special interest in women’s health, digestive disorders, anxiety, stress, depression and pain management as well as preventative medicine.


Prior to Chinese Medicine, Julia completed a Bachelor of Science in Medical Science at Curtin University of Technology. Julia worked as a multidisciplinary scientist in pathology before specializing in Cytopathology. She has been working in the health industry since 1999, first in pathology and later expanding her career into Chinese medicine.

Julia’s work in pathology, as well as a traumatic car accident which almost cost her her life, lead to Julia seeking a more personal and positive approach to medicine.

Like all regulated health practitioners, Julia is registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPHRA).
