Danielle’s exposure to acupuncture started early in life; her Dad consistently sought treatment for chronic back pain and Danielle was dragged along. She spent her time in the waiting room reading the posters on the walls, fascinated by the magnitude of points in random places that managed to make her Dad’s back better.
After school, although interested in studying acupuncture, she felt the pressure to pursue what she considered a more “professional” career. After 15 years of corporate life, her interest in acupuncture remained so she took the leap, immersed herself in Chinese medicine and has never looked back.
Danielle has personal experience receiving acupuncture for fertility, which led her to being a mum of one cute, Lego loving 7 year old girl. This also shaped her clinical focus in supporting reproductive health, preconception care, and pregnancy with a particular focus on optimising IVF outcomes along with reducing the stress that often comes with this challenging process. Danielle is constantly undergoing extensive fertility training allowing her to use the latest evidence based treatment protocols for natural fertility, pregnancy and IVF.
Danielle is passionate about making acupuncture accessible to everyone, with dreams of Medicare support and widespread community clinics. For the last 2 years, she has volunteered her time in a community based medical practice servicing Brisbane’s more vulnerable population. Patients here would not otherwise have the opportunity to access acupuncture and the focus is predominantly chronic pain management and mental health. Danielle is also a Director on the Board of Acupuncture Now Australia and is engaged in educating people on the benefits of acupuncture.
When she’s not reading up on the latest fertility studies and learnings in Chinese medicine, Danielle loves spending time at the beach and going for walks along the Brisbane River, believing in the calming effects of being around water. This affinity for water has been part of the inspiration for calling the clinic Yin. Yin is not only associated with relaxation and feminine energy but also the water element.
All of our Yin acupuncturists have been trained in the same style of acupuncture and work collaboratively as a team. So, if you ever need or want to change practitioner, we can assure you that you’ll receive a very similar style of treatment.
