Janine’s interest in mental health began when she observed the beneficial effects of acupuncture when supporting people presenting with anxiety and depression. Observing close family members suffer with suicidal depression, teens with anxiety, and friends coping with lifetime mental health problems, has lead her to her strong drive to better understand these conditions and promote acupuncture as a potential treatment option.
Janine maintains a strong belief in an integrative health care model, and she looks forward to collaborating with other mental health professionals. She currently works with teens and adults in a multidisciplinary health practice in Wellington’s CBD.
Janine graduated from the NZ school of Acupuncture and TCM in 2005. She has a BHSc (Acup).
