Your journey to better health starts here.


While Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine have been around for thousands of years, at Kim Gatenby Acupuncture (trading as Sydney Natural Fertility and Wauchope Acupuncture) you will experience a modern and gentle approach to this healthcare system. We’re passionate about making sure your experience is both relaxing and as beneficial as possible.


When you come in to the Dural, St Leonards, or Wauchope/Port Macquarie region acupuncture clinics, we will sit down and have a chat about your health concerns and what your wellness goals are. During this time your practitioner 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. Our 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, feeling lovely and rejuvenated.


While our main area of work is fertility and pregnancy care (predominantly at St Leonards due to the IVF clinics in the area), Kim has been the local acupuncturist in Dural for 18 years and has experience treating a wide range of conditions. Lisa also supports patients through their fertility journey, and is excellent at treating musculoskeletal issues thanks to her vast experience as an occupational therapist. If you would like to discuss your condition before treatment please get in touch through the contact page.


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

Lisa Burnley

Ba TCM, Ba App Sci (OT), Dip RM, Dip Tui Na

Lisa graduated from Sydney Institute of TCM with a Bachelor of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and is thrilled to support you on your fertility or health journey.

Lisa has always been interested in health and helping people and has a caring, practical and open nature. She graduated from the University of Western Sydney with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Occupational Therapy) and has worked for 16 years as an Occupational Therapist in a variety of Sydney and London hospitals, thus bringing with her a strong knowledge of Western medical conditions, critical thinking and proficient communication.

Lisa has a passion for combining her Chinese medicine knowledge with her Western medical knowledge to help provide clients with the best possible treatment outcomes. Lisa has a firm interest in women’s health and helping women to conceive; this combined with her own personal fertility journey has brought her to Sydney Natural Fertility to support women and men on their own health journeys.

Kim is available for Port Macquarie region acupuncture, while Lisa takes the helm at the Dural and St Leonards acupuncture clinics now.


The AACMA (Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association) TV commercial is out now, featuring Kim in her St Leonards clinic. Choosing a practitioner registered with AACMA means you are assured that your provider is fully qualified and registered in Acupuncture and Chinese medicine.
