She completed her study of Traditional Chinese Medicine at the University of Technology, Sydney with high distinctions. She is now undertaking her Masters degree in the field of Oncology, to study how acupuncture can be utilised for the symptom management of cancer patients and improve their quality of life.
Julia is a firm believer that all symptoms of the body are related in some way, and so she likes to comb through and ask about several areas (that may initially seem unrelated) of the patient’s health in order to provide a truly holistic and therapeutically effective treatment. She welcomes patients’ questions regarding their health and takes the time to explain, which is the reason why she also provides 1 hour follow-up treatment sessions for patients who would like the extra time for extensive consultation and treatment.
