Your journey to better health starts here.


While Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine have been around for thousands of years, at Kim Gatenby Acupuncture you will experience a modern and gentle approach to this healthcare system. I’m passionate about making sure your experience is both relaxing and as beneficial as possible.


When you come in to the St Leonards or Dural clinic, we will sit down and have a chat about your health concerns and what your wellness goals are. During this time I will be coming up with acupuncture points that will give you the best results. Once you are on the comfortable acupuncture table, the super fine acupuncture needles will be inserted. My style of acupuncture is very gentle, so the whole experience should be relaxing and enjoyable. After 20 minutes of rest time with the needles, they will be removed and you can carry on your day, hopefully feeling lovely and rejuvenated.


While my main area of work is fertility care (predominantly at St Leonards due to the IVF clinics in the area), I have been the local acupuncturist in Dural for 11 years and have experience treating a wide range of conditions. If you would like to discuss your condition before treatment please get in touch through the contact page.


I look forward to helping you and your extended family feel fantastic and in amazing health.
