"Kelli was a wonderful asset to our Annual Branch speaker day. Her presentation on meridian based yoga was informative, engaging & interactive. Not only was she able to share this as a yoga teacher for 20+years but also as a passionate shiatsu & acupuncture practitioner. Her clinical practice in  Glebe is both professional and nurturing much like herself . We all looked forward to being more aware of the seasonal changes within ourselves after her presentation."

About Zen Medicine Clinic

In the clinic, Kelli uses a combination of Chinese Medicine philosophy, Zen Shiatsu, Yoga Therapy, Food as Medicine, and Mindfulness.

A typical session will draw on these modalities and using diagnostic tools such as pulse, hara & channel palpation, observation of the tongue, facial area & body alignment, Kelli tailors treatment based on these diagnostic findings. 

To support the client back into pain-free and heartfelt living each session at the Zen Medicine Clinic is offered according to the individual needs using deep listening and responding with appropriate treatment. 


Kelli’s aim is to provides an integrative approach to healing working in tandem with western medicine practitioners where needed to support the client and ultimately reintroduce and educate simple lifestyle corrections so they are empowered and can self-direct their own wellness in life.

This is true Zen Medicine healing.
