Ngaio Richards

The originator of House of Fertility & Healing, Ngaio has been a practicing Acupuncturist for over 27yrs and a qualified Chinese herbalist for 17yrs at last count. She has keen clinical interests in working with women toward healthy and pain-free pregnancy, assisting relief of period pain and in acupuncture treatment of peri-menopausal / menopausal insomnia & hot flushes.

A pragmatic intuitive, she encourages a collaborative healing process through which the health issues on hand become tools and opportunities for her patient to learn more about body/mind and how to proactively take better care & responsibility for oneself. She utilises acupuncture, cold laser, Chinese herbal medicine alongside dietary & lifestyle coaching (where appropriate) to diagnose and address issues that may be undermining flourishing health. Beyond being symptom-free we can aim for robust energy levels and feeling fabulous! She is here to support your birth plan/your health goal, not another agenda. Over 27 years later, her rudder remains her awe of Chinese medicines capacity to turn people’s lives around.

She regularly updates her skills & knowledge via industry seminars, study trips to China, India & Europe under older & wiser practitioners, mentoring newer practitioners & a regular meditation practice.
