Amy Forth – Acupuncturist

Women’s health | Fertility | Pregnancy | General health

 

Amy has a wealth of experience with patients seeking treatment for fertility, pregnancy, pain and other general health issues and has been practicing Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture for over ten years.  Her focus is on caring, patient centered, evidence based treatment and support. Amy often treats:  fertility issues, women health issues such as irregular and painful periods, endometriosis and PCOS, back and neck pain, male factor fertility issues and pregnancy complaints such as morning sickness, back pain, carpal tunnel, pelvic instability, birth preparation and breech presentation.

A warm and knowledgeable practitioner, Amy has a vision of developing acupuncture as a mainstream and accessible part of modern healthcare. She originally moved to Sydney from Melbourne three years ago to complete a Master of Global Health that she is very proud (and relieved!) to say is now complete. With a strong desire for further research into integrative health care practices, Amy offers integrative approaches and brings her own research into her everyday practice by collaborating and communicating with her patients’ GPs, specialists, and other healthcare providers. Amy is an advocate of a real team  approach to care – which hugely benefits her patients.

Amy also works as a health educator and regularly presents to healthcare practitioners about acupuncture research and treatment. As a leader in her field she has presented to many leading health care institutions on acupuncture for fertility and pregnancy care, including IVF clinics, Hospital’s and Obstetrics practices.

In her spare time, Amy maybe found at the beach reading a book or doing an ocean swim, in unusual positions at a yoga class, or chatting away over a cup of tea.

As a Doctor of Chinese Medicine, Amy is registered by the government body Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). Like GPs, medical specialists, dentists etc they have to conform with the advertising standards set by AHPRA which does not allow the use of testimonials.

Hence, although we get positive feedback all the time, sadly we cannot share it with you here.
