Megan holds a Masters in Reproductive Medicine from UNSW, a Bachelor of Health Science (Acupuncture) and is a registered Acupuncturist with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (APHRA) and a member of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA).
By fortunate chance, whilst living in Tasmania, Megan detected her love for the Chinese language and culture. Whilst studying, Megan received a scholarship to study at a university in Taiwan for a semester, which led to her graduation with a diploma of Chinese Language in 2013. From there, her interest in Chinese Philosophy and Chinese Medicine peaked. She found her lifelong belief in natural health was reflected beautifully in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Next to her acupuncture studies, Megan travelled to China to practice alongside Chinese Medicine Doctors at the hospital of Nanning.
Right from the start of her acupuncture career, Megan has had a vivid interest in fertility and pregnancy. These additional studies have deepened Megan’s understanding of the complexity of reproduction, being able to consult her patients throughout the natural or assisted fertility process from both Western medicine and Chinese medicine perspective. Being herself a parent to a young man, Megan is passionate about supporting you and your family on your way to a healthy life, body, mind and spirit.
