Jodi Baldry

  • BHSc (Acupuncture)
  • Certificate IV in Remedial Therapy (Massage Therapy)
  • Registered with AHPRA as an acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist
  • Member of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA) and the Australian Association of Massage Therapists (AAMT).

I’ve worked in and around West End as a massage therapist and acupuncturist for 17 years. I love being part of this progressive and colourful community, which I find energising and inspiring.

Opening Moxa on vibrant Boundary Street was a dream come true for me. This has been further reinforced by finding the team of Moxa practitioners and collaborating with them as the clinic has evolved and grown.

Clinically, I’m a registered acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist, recognised by private health funds as a provider of these services, as well as remedial massage therapy.

I’m particularly interested in treating women’s health and helping couples overcome fertility issues. I also love treating pregnant women, helping them and their partner towards the birthing process, and offering ongoing support postpartum.  It’s a unique and special honour to be involved in such an important part of people’s lives.

Having said that, I really enjoy the diversity of my practice and enjoy helping people overcome whatever ailment they might have. Before I was an acupuncturist, I was a massage therapist and still love to combine, for example, acupuncture with techniques that I learned during that time to overcome acute and chronic pain.

 

No two days are ever the same in my clinic and I really enjoy the challenge that provides. I also enjoy learning and growing as a therapist, and working towards the development of my profession. I regularly attend seminars, have taught at the Australian College of Natural Medicine (now Endeavour College) and I’m a former member of the Queensland State Committee of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association. I hope to pursue a Masters in the not-too-distant future.

Personally, I spend much of my spare time renovating a very old but much-loved house in nearby Annerley. I grew up in the country, so I love getting out of the city for the quiet and beauty of open spaces and forests. I enjoy camping and hiking, and am an avid rock climber.

It’s not all action though. A rainy day, PJs and a great book can be heavenly too!

Meredith East-Powell

  • BHSc (Nutritionist)

I’m an accredited practising clinical nutritionist with a Bachelor of Health Science Nutrition and Dietetic Medicine. I’m a lover of simple, yet delicious food and strongly believe food should be a source of pleasure, so my ethos is about teaching you how to eat in a way that you enjoy and that suits your body and your lifestyle.

My goal is to provide others with the support, empowerment and knowledge they need to achieve exceptional health through nutrition and lifestyle.

My philosophy is about using evidence-based nutrition practices with a wholefoods approach, combined with lifestyle strategies that are tailored to the individual. My aim is to educate and empower my clients so they can move forward with the knowledge and skills needed to maintain their health long-term.

I’m a qualified yoga teacher and personally enjoy a regular yoga and meditation practice.

I fully support my clients using yoga and meditation as tools to improve their health and am available for group and private classes to assist with this journey.

Meredith

I treat all areas of health, including preventative health, however I have a special interest in women’s health and gut health. Endometriosis, adenomyosis, IBS and SIBO are very special interest areas of mine due to my own personal experiences with these conditions and the volunteer work I do for QENDO.

I look forward to supporting you on your health journey soon. 

Belinda Chapman

  • Diploma Clinical Hypnotherapy
  • Member of Australian Hypnotherapist Association
  • Diploma NeuroLinguistic Programming
  • Neuro Leadership Institute Workplace Coaching Certificate
  • Coaching Certificate in Multiple Brain Integration Technique (mBIT)
  • BSc in Australian Environmental Studies

Belinda Chapman loves to support women who are struggling to have a baby to re-ignite their hopes of creating the family of their dreams. Through their work together her clients reclaim their sense of success and once again trust their inner wisdom, gracefully facing whatever challenges arise each month. They feel calmer, more centred, and able to think straight again! They now also cope with the roller coaster of emotions often experienced with fertility challenges.

Belinda also loves to support women who have previously traversed the infertility path and are still feeling the impact on their health. Infertility trauma from loss, unresolved pain, grief and stress has been recognised as an unfortunate consequence of assisted reproductive technologies – whether the process was successful or not. Belinda has successfully assisted clients to heal from this trauma so they can truly enjoy the next phase of their life. They feel lighter and more energised, and genuinely excited about their future again.

Belinda has the courage to lean into her own vulnerability to feel compassion and empathy for others on their fertility journey and share her story to help others heal; to lean in and try what other therapists haven’t tried yet; and she has the courage to have hope when everyone else has given up.

She holds the space in such an open and nurturing manner that her clients know they are heard, accepted and cared for.

It’s Belinda’s Vision to build the kind of support that she knows she needed both during her struggles to grow her family and afterwards. Shes’s providing the kind of support that means there’s less mental health and emotional health issues amongst the Trying to Conceive (TTC) Community. Both her Therapy practice (Bekinda to Yourself Therapies) and her free Facebook group Compassionate TTC Community form part of that Vision.

Belinda is a Professional Coach and qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist and she’s personally ridden the infertility and IVF roller coaster. She appreciates how tough this journey can be, and how hard it is to feel hope when all seems lost. For nearly a decade she struggled to create her two little miracles and her mental and emotional health suffered horrendously.

She’s passionate about ensuring infertility doesn’t take a major toll on her clients, their relationships and their quality of life, now and into the future.

She believes it’s time to reduce the shame and taboo that is often associated with infertility & Women’s health and replace it with Compassion, Kindness and Love.
