Monique Menzel

Monique approaches her practice as an acupuncturist with gentleness, openness and in a warm hearted manner that is respectful, inclusive and meets each person wherever they are on life’s journey. She understands that healing and treatment is best when a relationship of safety, support and genuine compassionate collaboration is fostered between client and practitioner.

 

Monique is passionate about Eastern medicine and in particular the role it plays in musculoskeletal health and pain management, reproductive health, mental health and well-being. Her ethos as a practitioner is aligned within fundamental Oriental medicine principles which understands that we are treating the entire whole of the person, and by understanding the root of the disharmony and the branching symptoms that arise as a result, we are able to support the body so it can function harmoniously.

 

Not only has Monique obtained a Bachelor of Health Science in Acupuncture from Endeavour College of Natural Health, she also has a Bachelor Degree in Fine Arts from Queensland University of Technology.

 

Learning and growth has been an important component of Monique’s life and she continues to explore the relationship between mind and body. She incorporates a daily practice of meditation, somatic movement and embodied yoga of which she has trained extensively in and feels that these aspects are an integral part of who she is a practitioner. In her spare time, Monique loves to connect with family and friends, spend time in nature and be immersed in the experience of film.

 

Monique has completed additional training in Balance Method Acupuncture with Sonia Tan which focuses on regulating the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Over time it has become particularly apparent to Monique how important it is to maximise healing, whether that is from any of the various stressors in life, be it physical such as spinal and nerve pain or emotional stress and pains. Monique is also based in Acupuncture clinics focusing on fertility and reproductive health within which she continues to practice.

 

Monique is registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Registration Agency (AHPRA) and Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA)
