Chrissie trained at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in the UK, gaining her Licentiate in Acupuncture in 1997 and her Diploma of Chinese Medicine in 2000. She practised in London for 20 years before returning to New Zealand at the end of 2016. She is trained in both TCM and Five Element styles and has extensive experience in fertility, pregnancy and induction treatments, as well as general health and wellbeing, and any musculoskeletal issues too.

Chrissie is passionate advocate of the healing power of yoga. Her interest in the energetic (subtle) bodies, led to embark on her first training in 2014 and her Level 2 training in 2018. She likes to teach small classes so that she can give students individual attention.

Chrissie has travelled the world and is fascinated by Earth’s mysterious ancient past. Her favourite places are India, Egypt and Jordan. When not doing yoga, she likes to read and write – and has an appreciation for all the arts.
