About Us

Hi, and welcome! 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.  Otherwise, I also have lots of accessible information on this site through my blog posts, and also offer Skype fertility consultations online.

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 13 years of clinical experience, so you know you’re in good hands. I am also currently studying a Master of Reproductive Medicine and have just completed my first year with outstanding results (keep an eye out for my essays in the blog area!).

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. If you would like to discuss your own situation before coming in, feel free to get in touch via the contact page.

Warmest wishes,

Kim

Associate: Dr Isobel Marr

Dr Isobel Marr became interested in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) due to its recognition of the interconnected nature of the body, mind and environment, and its ability to promote healing in a gentle and non-invasive way. She is passionate about the possibilities emerging from the integration of the ancient paradigm of TCM with a modern biomedical understanding of health.

She has a background in both Eastern and Western modalities, holding a Bachelor of Health Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) and a Doctor of Medicine (MD) from the University of Sydney. She is a member of the Australian Traditional Medicine Society (ATMS).

In her acupuncture practice Isobel is interested in a range of conditions, with a particular interest in digestive health, menstrual/hormonal imbalances, vision/eye strain and stress reduction.
