Lauren Sanderson-Young came to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncture firstly as a patient. She found through treatment that she was passionate about the practice of Acupuncture and went on to study a Bachelor of Health Science in TCM and Acupuncture.
Lauren has a strong passion for Women’s Health in all areas and has developed this side of her practice including studying under Kirsten Wolfe in THE FERTILE LIFE MEHTOD. Treating women and teenagers with a range of conditions, physical and emotional, including PCOS, Endometriosis, Adenomyosis and Menstruation irregularities to name a few and believes that often physical and emotional issues go hand in hand. Lauren therefore often treats multiple issues within a treatment session.
She strongly believes in the education of young girls surrounding their bodies and menstrual health and what ‘health’ and ‘health maintenance’ mean within the bounds of Western Society. Treating hormone imbalances, painful periods and PMS. Lauren combines her passion and knowledge to holistically treat patients using TCM, including offering dietary and lifestyle advice as an adjunct to treatment. Lauren’s approach to Acupuncture is nurturing and gentle and she is always happy to talk about treatment and empower each her patients individually.
