Guest Bio:

Headshots-LIZ

Elizabeth Cullen is a Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner and Acupuncturist. She is the founder of The Dao Health based in Caringbah in Sydney’s Sutherland Shire where her and her team of Chinese Medicine practitioners are dedicated to creating a practice where patients of the West can confidently and safely experience and benefit treatment learnt from the East.

Through the use of the latest evidence based Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture research each patient is treated as an individual at The Dao Health. Liz seeks the root of the cause rather than the branch to restore the healthy balance both physically and emotionally.

Liz has a particular passion and enthusiasm treating Women’s Health and Fertility and last year she graduated from UNSW with a Masters of Women's Health Medicine to continue to pursue her passion of Integrative Medicine. Treatment ranges from beginning with Menarche and Menstrual issues including Endometriosis and Poylcystic Ovary Syndrome through to Pre conception behaviour, Natural Fertility support, Male fertility support, IUI and IVF support, Pregnancy, Labour preparation and Post natal care.

She treats a range of conditions in the clinic and has interest and experience in the treatment of Bells Palsy, Digestive Issues, Skin conditions, Sleep issues, Chronic Fatigue, Musculoskeletal Issues, Mental Health and Cosmetic Acupuncture.

Elizabeth’s ongoing curiosity with Traditional Chinese Medicine inspires her to travel back to China for ongoing study and in her spare time enjoys taking her two rescue dogs Iris and Arthur to the beach.​

Our Guest - Amy Needham

Amy is a Nutrition & Performance Coach. She currently lectures and mentors in Performance Nutrition to a variety of people across the world including doctors. Amy sees clients both online and face to face, with most of these clients looking for body transformations & a mental shift in regards to health.

Amy was a competitive gymnast for 10years, and has several qualifications in yoga, massage, Powerlifting, Women's artistic gymnastics, boxing, Cert iii and 4 in fitness & personal training along with mentorships in exercise sport science & physiology as well as female health. This legend of a fellow nerd is also a student in a bachelor of Health Science in Nutrition & Masters in Dietetics.

Her focus as a coach is upon improving the lives of all that she meets, creating a body & mind transformation. Working specifically with hormonal health and the psychology of eating to create lifestyle based body recomposition to maintain a lean & strong physique year round is her jam.

As Amy puts it - she  bridges the Gap between Health & 'Fitness' to dispel the bullshit & give knowledge to the masses. Her point of difference as a coach is that she doesn’t want to retain clients - she simply wants to create the physical change in a way that educates the person enough to go about it alone after they finish up.

 

Topics Include:

💪The biggest mistakes women make when it comes to exercise
💪Benefits of strength training for females
💪 Will HIIT training alone get you results
