After 4 years of study at UTS, time spent in China and 5 years of practice, Katika still thoroughly enjoys and is fascinated by Chinese Medicine and its potential. She enjoys helping clients get better, faster by giving them painless acupuncture and herbal medicine to speed the recovery process along. Working with her clients to produce tangible results is a priority for Katika.
Katika enjoys treating patients who haven’t had Acupuncture or Chinese herbs before and might be apprehensive or anxious about the process. “To see the pleased look on clients faces about how painless acupuncture is, along with the improvement and relief the client experiences, makes it all worth while.”
The benefits of Chinese Medicine
The World Health Organisation and clinical trials agree that Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can assist by:
- Providing drug free pain relief
- Releasing muscle tension to increase your range of free and easy movement
- Reducing injury recovery time so you can return to your normal routine sooner
- Increasing your immunity so you are sick less often and recover faster
- Reducing Coughs, Post Nasal Drip and Sinusitis
- Relieves stress so you feel calmer, happier and more relaxed

Is acupuncture safe?
All needles are sterile, single use and disposable to eliminate the potential of infection. This guarantees patient safety and peace of mind.
Is acupuncture comfortable?
Acupuncture should not hurt the patient. Different acupoints can be sensitive on each individual. If at any time you feel discomfort, Katika will adjust the needles to make your treatment a comfortable and relaxing experience.
