Dawn has a long held interest in complementary medicine and nutrition and their benefits. She is passionate about living a balanced, vital and healthy life and fosters this enthusiasm in her practice.
Her passion for Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine was fostered through personally experiencing the health benefits and results of this ancient, effective, safe and non-invasive system of treatment. This personal experience led her to study with Dr. Vincent Carroll at Lansdowne College.
Dawn graduated from Lansdowne College of Acupuncture and Complementary Medicine, with a Diploma in Traditional Chinese Medicine and a Certificate in Clinical Medicine. She completed postgraduate clinical training in the National Hospital of Traditional Medicine (NHTM) - Vietnam’s leading hospital for traditional medicine and WHO (World Health Organisation) collaborating centre for Traditional Medicine - receiving a Diploma in Acupuncture, Vietnamese Massage & Cupping.
She holds a Diploma in Diet and Nutrition for Complementary Therapists and a Diploma in Holistic Massage, both ITEC accredited.
