anxiety and depression
Wellbeing is dependent on many factors, only some of which are under our control. Fundamentally, life balance can be seen in simple mathematics: some factors act as a credit and others as a debit; we need to nurture activities and attitudes which nourish life and temper those which don’t. We aim to work collaboratively with patients to set in place strategies to achieve this.
After graduating from Curtin University, Jessica worked in Fremantle, Melbourne and had her own clinic in Tasmania. She now resides in the beautiful town of Brunswick Heads.
Jessica has undertaken extensive study since graduating, particularly Integrative Acupuncture for Physiotherapists to offer patients greater benefits to their health and well-being. She completed the Certificate of Orthopeadic Manual Therapy in Portugal, spinal trainings and numerous Clinical Pilates teacher trainings.
Passionate about promoting health through the mind-body connection Jessica uses skills from her Mindfulness meditation teaching background which she blends into her treatments when required. She also teaches these practices on retreats. Jessica has completed the Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Training Certification Program led by Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield and is an experienced meditation teacher in Byron Bay.
Jessica is a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association and also the Australian Society of Acupuncture for Physiotherapists.
