Who I am
Dr Ivanka Narai
Hi, my name is Ivanka Narai. I am a holistic practitioner of Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture.
My life’s journey has taken me on an extreme adventure, filled with the greatest of joys, which includes my best friend/husband and three beautiful children, to the greatest of sorrows, which encompasses the loss of my mother when I was ten, and the scars of a traumatic incident of abuse when I was three.
So, with a passion for self transformation and personal growth, as well as astrology, art, singing and yoga, I have worked hard to release myself from adversities. Because the little girl who came into this world with wonder and curiosity deserves to experience all the amazing things that life has to offer!
Consequently, I believe that anyone who wants to help themselves, on their own healing journey, deserves to be supported and surrounded by caring and like-minded people. Having found that holistic Chinese Medicine has helped me with the physical symptoms, that were related to the emotional affects of the trauma, I use herbal medicine and acupuncture to help my clients alleviate physical symptoms, such as muscle aches and pains, low energy, sleep disruption, skin problems, altered eating habits, as well as mood and behavioural changes.
For me, the uncanny plays a huge role in my life, where weird little coincidences or signals guide me to the right people and places. Hence, I always call upon the Universe to work through me, for my highest good and the highest good of all.
If you feel that I’m the right person for you, at this point in your life, please contact me.
Dr Ivanka Narai holds a Bachelor of Traditional Chinese Medicine from the Sydney Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Dr Ivanka Narai is a member of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association.
Dr Ivanka Narai is registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.
