I am a Wellness coach, TCM Food Therapist, Macrobiotic counsellor, Emotional Anatomy consultant, Energy Medicine practitioner, and author based in Australia & Asia. I also teach the Energetics of nutrition and Food Therapy workshops in Yoga training and other events.
I spent over 16 years in Shanghai, 6 of which where I co-owned China’s first health food store & plant-based nutrition cooking studio, and previously owned a small health food café. My journey into understanding Qi began by studying and practicing TCM Food Therapy with my mentor Dr Zhang Yi Fei, and we co-authored a book about Healthy Smoothies and functional foods in 2014, and I have been hosting Dr Zhang’s TCM fundamentals, food therapy & meridian theory courses in China since 2017.
I have an intuitive sense for cooking with seasonal varieties of vegetables, sea vegetables, natural foods, and applying 5 Element theory. I am passionate about teaching the Energetics of nutrition in relation to how food & cooking methods affect Qi, transform physical health, mood and emotional well-being.
In 2019 I published a second book “Chinese Superfoods,” in Chinese, which has sold over 7000 copies. Through the book I encourage new generations of food therapy enthusiasts to explore Asian traditional foods, cook with everyday ingredients & get into the kitchen.
Outside of the kitchen I love to practice Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga, Qigong & Meditation as part of holistic well-being, cultivating Qi and balancing emotional health. I also LOVE water and swimming in the ocean.
