Achieving improved health and wellbeing through Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine.
Hi I’m Rebecca. I support pregnant and post-natal women, couples seeking fertility and IVF support, babies and children, as well as all aspects of women’s health. I use acupuncture and Chinese medicine to achieve improved health and wellness, which seeks to address the root cause of your issue. Acupuncture for kids is super gentle and very different to adult acupuncture. Read more on the Paediatric Acupuncture page!
I’m the co-director of Red Tent Health Centre and Acubirth, which have expanded to work within the Wholistic Medical Centre. I’m passionate about women’s health, as women are often at the centre of their family and community. When you go down, the whole family starts to sink.
As well as face-to-face treatments for yourself and your family, I regularly do phone consults for post-natal clients and for those who live far away.
I run online courses for midwives which are accredited by the Australian College of Midwives and American College of Nurse Midwives.
I studied at the University of Technology Sydney and finished my degree in Beijing China. I’m constantly updating my skills with the latest in integrative medicine as well as deepening my Chinese medical knowledge.
Paediatric Acupuncture, what happens in a treatment session
The first treatment session is 1hr and I ask lots of questions about every aspect of your child’s health but also about your pregnancy and delivery of them. The treatment part of the session is approximately ten minutes but this depends on what I am doing, acupuncture, moxibustion, massage…
After the first appointment, I will ask you and your child to return up to two times for five minute appointments and these are free. This is where I will simply do the acupuncture or moxibustion and you’ll be on your way very quickly. Children need regular hands on treatment, so this is the way I have found works best for them.
After those two five minute appointments are done, we schedule a follow up appointment of 30 minutes where again we catch up, go through their diet and lifestyle, tweak the massage, tweak the herbs and give acupuncture or moxibustion.
Then after this there is another two free short five minute treatments, then a follow up is booked for 30 minutes and so on.

Rebecca’s health practice integrates the foundations of eastern medicine across a broad scope of western medicine. Her journey in eastern medicine began over 15 years ago in Lohan qigong, with further education in undergraduate and post graduate study in Traditional Chinese and Japanese medicine in Australia, China and Japan.
She has worked primarily in women’s health treating fertility and pregnancy, being a part of many amazing stories and helping to turn many breech babies. However, in her practice she treats people of all ages and conditions… Her youngest patient was a 9 month old baby who had digestive upsets unable to gain weight, and the eldest a 97 year old with shoulder pain unable to go for their everyday swim.
Typically treatment sessions involve gentle Japanese acupuncture to activate the bodies natural healing abilities, along with Chinese acupuncture, moxibustion, shonishin and herbal medicine where appropriate for ones condition and constitution. Her treatments provide relaxing, rejuvenating effects to alleviate daily life stress & anxiety, improve digestion & nutrient absorption, quality of sleep, enhance energy levels, vitality, skin condition, focus, immunity, reduce pain & injury recovery time.
For a complementary lifestyle approach she also provides guidance in Lohan qigong techniques (breathing, movement and meditation), nutrition, supplements, dietary therapy and exercise… so every body can reach their optimal well-being!
