The Consultation

Robin is a registered as a practitioner of herbal medicine and acupuncture with the Chinese Medicine Registration Board of Victoria. She does not rush consultations because she believes it is essential to listen to the patient to understand his or her needs and priorities. Only in this way can the best care and treatment be given. For this reason, up to an hour and a half is set aside for the initial consultation, and between 45-60 minutes for follow-ups. Apart from common ailments and general health issues for children and the whole family, Robin specialises in the area of women’s health; in addition to menstrual and menopausal problems, she treats infertility, supports pregnancy, treats morning sickness, and assists in breech presentation, and childbirth.

Modalities used may include acupuncture, acupressure, herbal medicine, moxibustion, cupping, guasha, or Chinese remedial massage known as tuina-anmo.
