Donna

Donna has OVER 25 YEARS OF experience working as a health practitioner and specialises in women’s health.

Donna has over 25 years of experience working as a health practitioner and specialises in the health of mind, body and emotions.

Donna uses integrative therapies, traditional Chinese acupuncture, acupressure and somatic experience to assist with pre-conception for women and couples, hormonal balance, pregnancy, parenting, stress and anxiety, recovery, health and wellbeing.

Donna learnt the power of touch in assisting recovery and alleviating pain and anxiety while working as a registered nurse. She took this further by becoming qualified in Holistic massage, energy balancing, healing touch and Jin Shin Jyutsu.

Later, Donna pursued a career in midwifery and has assisted many women and families with their journey through birth and parenting. While practising midwifery, she found acupuncture to be highly successful in reducing and alleviating the discomforts of pregnancy, including the emotional changes a woman goes through. This led Donna to gain a qualification in midwifery acupuncture.

Excited about the possibilities of acupuncture, Donna obtained post-graduate qualifications in traditional Chinese acupuncture. She also gained clinical experience in Chinese hospitals, where acupuncture is integrated with Western medicine. There, she also studied with professors who work in women’s health with acupuncture.

Donna’s further training has also led her to work with mindfulness and somatic experience.

Donna combines this wealth of experience in helping women, men and couples on their journey through pre-conception, fertility, prevention of miscarriage, pregnancy, preparation for labour, postnatal recovery, menstrual imbalances, menopause and stress, anxiety, recovery, health and well-being.

Donna enjoys coaching couples and individuals and uses techniques of mindfulness and somatic experience to give people the tools to maintain balance and achieve their desired outcomes. She can help you find harmony for mind, body and emotions, assisting you to navigate successfully through all these life experiences.
