Emma's true passion in life is healing animals. She is a veterinarian and board certified surgeon, who has transitioned from western medicine into eastern medicine. Emma now practices Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) and is certified in Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Tui-na and Food Therapy for animals. Through her 18 years of experience in diagnosing and treating disharmonies in animals at the physical, energetic and spiritual level she has a deep understanding of disease and healing. Her focus is on the connection between the soul and the body and healing at a deeper level.
Throughout her career in Western Veterinary Medicine she worked as an equine surgeon, senior lecturer and academic consultant for both Australian and International Veterinary Schools. In June 2007 Emma had an accident resulting in a fractured spine. Eastern medicine was a very important part of the recovery. Following the rehabilitation, Emma was inspired by the importance of eastern medicine in her own life. This motivated a change in career path and she studied Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine with the Chi Institute (USA and Australia). In 2013 she received Dr Xie’s Inaugural Award for Outstanding Academic Achievement in TCVM. Emma has always had a deep connection with nature which, in addition to her love of ancient wisdom and Indigenous culture, has inspired the recent study of Shamanism and traditional healing practices.
Emma uses a combination of western and eastern medical knowledge, expert palpation, TCVM diagnostic techniques, intuitive guidance and communication with the animal in her assessments. A range of treatments are used to treat any disease or disharmony that may be present. These include Low Level Laser Therapy, Moxibustion, Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Food Therapy, Tui-na, and Shamanic Healing Practices. The chosen treatment will depend upon the disharmony and the indivividual needs of the patient, and will be chosen for the highest good.
