Martine set up Acupuncture Collective in 2012. She has 14 years of experience as an acupuncturist and herbalist.
Massage and yoga were the first natural therapies that captured Martine’s interest, and she went on to study them extensively in Australia and India. It was the experience of being cured by acupuncture in five treatments, after years of searching to cure a chronic neuro-muscular problem in her arm, that inspired Martine to discover more about acupuncture as a solution to chronic pain and disease.
Martine says: “In Chinese Medicine, we treat the person and not the disease. Every day I am inspired by the benefits acupuncture can offer to improve our quality of life. I see acupuncture as a valuable tool for numerous conditions, such as relieving pain, anxiety, managing tiredness, resolving stress and overactive minds. But what has impressed me most is the connection to true self it brings.”
