Introduce yourself in 50 words or less…
Hi, I’m Gina Yallamas, an acupuncturist, Chinese medicine herbalist and energy healer. I’m a local Inner Westie living in Lilyfield and practicing in Birchgrove. I’m a huge advocate for alternative therapies and anything natural as I believe in our bodies ability to heal if given the right love and care. I have 3 wild daughters aged 16, 13 and 8 that are my inspiration and joy! Nature and animals (we have a dog and rabbit) are close to my heart and combining those with family and friends makes me a happy soul!
How can you support women BEFORE birth?
I assist women pre-pregnancy with fertility and preparation of the body and mind for conception. Both acupuncture and energy healing are beneficial for this depending on your concerns/situation. Our modern lives can create stress that can affect conception so allowing you to be as calm and relaxed as possible is essential for the enjoyment and success of conception.
How can you support women DURING birth?
I educate you and your partner about various acupressure points that can be accessed during labour to assist you with pain, relaxation and ease of birth. Pre-birth acupuncture is also very useful for supporting and preparing the body for the birthing process.
How can you support woman AFTER birth?
Post-birth the body is in a depleted state and requires added nurturing and nourishment, particularly with the demands of breast feeding. Chinese herbs, acupuncture and other nutritional education help to rebuild your energy and restore your body as it contracts back to its original state of wellness.
What are the main benefits a pregnant (or recently given birth) women could gain from your services?
The main benefits are a supportive, calm, nurturing and wholistic experience that helps to empower you before and after the birth.
What do you love most about your job?
Helping people become their best in all situations and providing a wholistic experience that balances the body, mind and spirit.
If you could give pregnant women 1 piece of advice, what would it be?
Your body knows what it is doing, it was designed to give birth so focus on being calm and feeling supported.
