Elements of the Earth is run by Chinese Medicine Practitioner, acupuncturist and herbalist Tina Camilleri.
Tina has over fifteen years’ experience in complimentary medicine, and she is well known for her caring, genuine approach, as well as her ability to educate and inspire others on their path to wellness.
Tina treats a wide range of patients, but her particular areas of interest are mental / emotional wellbeing, anxiety, stress-relief, women's health (teenage to post-menopausal), fertility and pregnancy support, and the emotional origins of pain. She also works closely with patients dealing with chronic inflammation, TMJ syndrome and tooth grinding.
As anyone who works with Tina knows, she is passionate about helping people enjoy the pleasures of healthy eating and the joys of engaging with food on a sensory level. For patients in need in inspiration, she can provide recipe support and medicinal food ingredients, and she will happily talk (for hours) about herbs, edible weeds, veggies, mushrooms, moss, fruits and flowers.
While much of Tina’s work deals directly with healing the physical body, her emphasis is always on the spirit of healing. She draws on Eastern medicine’s holistic approach to wellness that aims to treat the root cause of imbalances, not just the symptoms, and she works with her patients in creating a treatment program that works best for them. Her treatments combine acupuncture, high quality herbal medicines and holistic lifestyle counselling with practical advice on how to eat in harmony with the seasons, and how to live a healthier, more well-aligned life.
Alongside her grounding in the traditions of Chinese Medicine Tina draws on the wisdom of Daoism; seasonal and Earth-based practices; and on the restorative benefits of Nature.
Tina is currently studying the benefits of sensory gardens on people living with dementia, and doing ongoing research into the ways people connect with plants.
Tina's is a thoughtful, compassionate and sensitive practitioner with a unique and powerful healing style.
