Nikki  founded Echidna Acupuncture & Natural Therapies in 2007. She is trained in both Chinese and Japanese Acupuncture Styles.  She is a member of ANTA and Registered with AHPRA.


Nikki specialises in the Kiiko Style of Japanese Acupuncture, which is a dynamic technique characterised by its use of a palpation sequence, that provides instant diagnosis and feedback to both the patient and practitioner. In 2013, Nikki was selected to attend an International Master Class to train with Sensei Kiiko Matsumoto in Japan.  Nikki believes in "gentle practise" and her treatments are a deeply relaxing, nurturing experience that heal and restore the body's natural balance.  Her style and approach are well suited to those with complex health issues and those patients who are considered sensitive.


Nikki incorporates NET (Neuro Emotional Technique) into her treatment protocols.  This is a mind-body technique that clears unresolved stress patterns from the body.  She was  one of two Australians to Certify in NET in the United States in February 2015. With a background in Oriental Medicine and degrees in Psychology, Nikki takes a holistic approach to her treatments, and has the ability to see beyond the "symptoms".  She is known her compassionate nature, her nurturing approach and gentle touch.
