About Kim

Kim Gatenby

I’m so glad you’re here!  I’m Kim Gatenby, acupuncturist and doctor of Chinese medicine.

My two clinics are located in St Leonards and Dural in Sydney, Australia.  

If you’re able to come in and meet me in person that would be fantastic!  If not, please have a look around the site and check out the blog for the latest health articles.

As an acupuncturist and traditional Chinese medicine practitioner, it’s my great pleasure to be able to help you overcome whatever health hurdles you’re challenged by at the moment.  

I have a Bachelor Degree in Applied Science (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and 10 years of clinical experience, so you know you’re in good hands. I have also just started studying a Master of Reproductive Medicine in 2018.

After travelling to China to complete my education in 2006, I started working in a clinic under the direction of a midwife.  This is where I was first drawn to helping pregnant women and women who wanted to become pregnant.  

It’s definitely an emotional role to be such an important part of someone’s journey to parenthood, but it’s the reason I jump out of bed every day and love coming to work!

I’m also really thrilled to be able to help with all sorts of general health concerns.  Whether you have a sore knee, migraines, auto immune conditions, or anything else at all, I’m happy to be able to get you back to feeling great again.  I like a challenge, so even if you’ve tried everything else with no luck, I’d love to work with you to help you feel better.

As a practitioner who works for myself, I feel this helps me to better connect with you because you will always be dealing directly with me. My patients know I truly care about them, and it’s an honour to be a part of their health care.

If you have any questions about how I can help you, please get in touch through the contact page.  I’d love to hear from you.  

Warmest wishes,
