Kimberley Laurence B Sc. B HSc. M App Sc. Registered Chinese Medicine Practitioner
I am a Chinese medicine practitioner with a particular interest in women’s health, fertility support, pregnancy and digestion.
I am passionate about natural health care and am committed to working with you to help you achieve optimal health and wellness.
Remaining up-to-date is essential to my practice – I continually undertake professional development and research to ensure my treatments are as effective as possible. This involves integrating evidence-based research with my clinical experience and your preferences and values.
I have been practicing Chinese medicine since 2009 after the completion of a Bachelor of Health Science (Acupuncture). In 2014 I graduated with distinction from RMIT University with a Masters degree in Applied Science (Chinese herbal Medicine). Completion of the Masters program included clinical experience at a Traditional Chinese medicine hospital in China.
I am registered with the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia and am a member of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association. I am also a registered provider with most private health funds.
I live in the northern suburbs with my husband and two beautiful sons. When not in clinic I enjoy baking, making and pottering in the garden.
My commitment to giving back
I have chosen to make regular donations to Fistula Foundation, an organisation that funds operations to repair obstetric fistula.
Many women in the developing world give birth without medical support. Difficult and prolonged birth can lead to obstetric fistula, a rupture between the birth canal and the rectum or bladder. Obstetric fistula can cause pain, frequent infections, and severe faecal and urinary incontinence. Women living with fistula are often shunned by their family and community.
Obstetric fistula does not heal on its own and must be surgically repaired. Fistula Foundation works to provide free fistula surgeries, support local health care workers and increase access to treatment to some of the worlds poorest women.
I am committed to supporting charitable organisations with proven positive impacts that make a significant difference. The Life You Can Save is an organisation committed to identifying and supporting highly effective charities. Fistula Foundation is listed as a Top Charity by The Life You Can Save.
