Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine
The treatment environment Ange provides for your acupuncture session will be nurturing, supportive and offer an experience of deep relaxation, healing and transformation to care for your energetic health.
Your treatment process:
Ange will work with her clients and other modalities in a complementary way by uniting a possible medical diagnosis and enhancing any other treatments being sought with the principals of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), including Five Element constitutional diagnosis.
This will facilitate an integrated process of healing using acupuncture (perhaps moxa and cupping) and lifestyle advice (including diet therapy and breathing exercises from Qi Gong and Yoga) that will be inspiring and practical.
This process will help you understand the underlying conditions of your individual body, educate and empower you to implement change in your day to day way to maintain well being and your best energetic health.
Treatments with Ange are for all ages and conditions, but her main area of specialty is women’s health (pre and post natal care, menstrual complaints and awareness, fertility, stress management, fatigue, emotional and digestive disorders). This includes youth, acupuncture and the principals of TCM can be so beneficial for children and teens - if young girls get the right support when starting their mensuration they can be set for life!
Seasonal 'tune in' treatments to prevent 'dis-ease' are encouraged. Such serves the body to maintain well being - like a farmer constantly nurturing the soil to gain the best harvest for the seasons progressing or, servicing your body as you would have a mechanic servicing your car. Some clients choose to come at season change points; the intention of this is to promote ongoing well being.
Prior to choosing to formally study TCM in NZ, Angie lived in Japan 4 years and then Beijing where coincidence found her living with a TCM Dr from Sydney who inspired her greatly to explore TCM and Qi Gong for her own health alongside her love of yoga. She stayed living in Beijing for over a year while teaching children's yoga, vinyasa and restorative at international studio, Yoga Yard during the 2008 Olympics. During her Health Science degree, Ange received 2 years clinical experience in Acupuncture earning over 500 clinical hours before the close of her final year (including a days internship in Hutt hospital in Wellington treating pregnancy with Debra Betts) and was awarded top student at her graduation in 2012. She has two beautiful young girls whose lives have benefited greatly from TCM - from easy conception and birth to daily well health. Angie was the Yoga facilitator on Dr Libby’s Beautiful You retreats in NZ and Australia 2014-2016. She now offers her own ongoing workshops here at Golden Yogi drawing from her background in Yoga and TCM for woman's health, pregnancy and caring for your general energetic health during each season.
"It is hard to put into words the profound impact Ange's acupuncture sessions have had on my wellbeing. She has a beautiful sixth sense and always gets to the core of whatever the underlying issue maybe - the word 'superficial' does not exist in Ange's vocabulary. She has helped me with my sleeping, skin, regulating my periods, anxiety, among a myriad of other things that have popped up along the way. She listens intently and works with grace and poise - one can't help but be relaxed in her presence. Ange is the consummate professional and I recommend her to every woman I come into contact with - such a treat!" - Kate
