Maria’s interest in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) began over 15 years ago, as a patient at the Rozelle Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Centre (RACM). It started as a very personal journey, because after many years of trying to fall pregnant, she was unable to have a baby and there were no medical explanations; it just came down to unexplained infertility.
This life experience helps Maria understand the pressures and stresses men and women often face when trying to have a baby. The experience also led Maria to totally change the direction of her career, several years after giving birth to her healthy baby boy, when she completed her Bachelor of Health Science in Chinese Medicine Degree, at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS).
Maria remains very passionate about the rich history and theory of TCM and this passion continues to grow. The director and founder of RACM, Jann Mehmet, recognised Maria’s passion and commitment and mentored Maria while she was completing her degree. The experience and guidance have been invaluable to Maria’s knowledge and skill as an acupuncturist.
Today, Maria has a special interest and focus in women’s health, fertility, pregnancy and menopause as well as a special interest in the health of babies and children, musculoskeletal conditions, digestive, weight control, stress management, various forms of sleep disorders, and overall general well-being. With increasing clinical experience Maria has found a great joy in providing acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine to her clients.
As an accomplished practitioner Maria has real life experiences enriched with her knowledge, and in partnership with the RACM team, Maria looks forward to meeting you.
