Ngaio Richards

The originator of House of Fertility & Healing, Ngaio has been a practicing Acupuncturist for over 25yrs and a Chinese herbalist for 16yrs at last count. Her special interest and clinical focus in the TCM treatment of fertility, in pregnancy acupuncture and general women’s health through from puberty to menopause continues to broaden.

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 utilizes both Chinese (acupuncture, cold laser, Chinese herbal medicine) and western medical models alongside dietary & lifestyle coaching (where appropriate) to diagnose and address issues that may be undermining the conception development and birth of a healthy baby, radiant mother. Beyond being symptom-free we can aim for robust energy levels and feeling really good! She is here to support your birth plan/your health goal, not another agenda. Over 25 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.
