Cristina completed an Honours degree in traditional acupuncture at the renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, where she studied two different styles: Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Five Element acupuncture. Cristina also completed a postgraduate diploma in Tui Na massage and a diploma in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. She now teaches part-time at the same College.
Before becoming an acupuncturist, Cristina worked many years as a pharmacist within the pharmaceutical industry and community pharmacy. During her years as a community pharmacist, Cristina became passionate about learning complementary therapies to further benefit patients. Cristina became particularly interested in acupuncture after having experienced the benefits of acupuncture treatment first hand.
In her clinic, Cristina is amazed at how acupuncture can help promote physical and emotional wellbeing, while being drug and virtually side effect free. Cristina combines her knowledge of Western medicine with Traditional Chinese medicine to provide individually tailored holistic treatments. As part of the treatment, Cristina offers dietary advice and uses techniques such as Tui Na, Cupping, Guasha, Moxibustion and Electroacupuncture.
Cristina is passionate about Chinese Medicine and regularly attends specialised courses to further broaden her knowledge.
