OWNER & ACUPUNCTURIST

Paige Waters

Hi, I’m Paige Waters. I was born on the Gold Coast and love the supportive community of women and health practitioners here. I opened my first acupuncture clinic eight years ago after graduating from my acupuncture degree in Melbourne. I didn’t know I was going to focus on fertility and pregnancy, until I realised that’s mainly what I was doing and loving it. The importance of the right support became more obvious when I went through my own fertility challenges.

I now have two beautiful daughters and so much to teach women and families going through their fertility and pregnancy experiences.

I use a combination of ancient Chinese medicine practices with modern researched protocols to treat your unique cause of concern. I use the highest quality Japanese needles and a gentle needle technique for pain-free acupuncture treatments. In all of your sessions, you will be given individual lifestyle and dietary advice to support your treatment.

I can’t guarantee you a baby, I can’t guarantee you just one IVF cycle. I can’t guarantee you an easy symptom free pregnancy. What I can promise you, is that you will be heard, respected, supported, treated as an individual and together we will learn about your body and ensure your fertility and pregnancy story is a positive one.

Carlie Rubenstein

Carlie Rubenstein from Paige Waters Acupuncture

Hello, my name is Carlie, and I am honoured to be a part of Paige Water’s Acupuncture team.

My passion for Chinese Medicine began in my early adolescence through my own health journey following chronic illness (glandular fever and chronic fatigue). The marked improvement in my energy and quality of life, led me to be truly fascinated by this form of medicine and I ultimately turned it into my career.

I’m truly passionate in supporting women’s health. I have focused on developing my knowledge and understanding of hormones, fertility, pregnancy, and postnatal care, through my own clinical experience, mentorship’s with well-versed health practitioners in the industry and through undergoing professional training in infertility & IVF.

My sessions incorporate a blend of Japanese acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion, Chinese herbs, and dietetics. Every treatment is uniquely honed for the needs of every individual.

As a team member at PW Acupuncture, I look forward to creating a space to learn and rediscover your body’s innate healing ability and to support you on your fertility and pregnancy journey.

OSTEOPATH

Jacqui Quinn

Jacqui Quinn

Hey, I’m Jacqui a warm and caring kiwi osteopath passionate about empowering women to optimal health through all stages of life.

With over a decade of experience including remedial, pregnancy and lymphatic treatments, I focus on treating lumbar-pelvic pain, headaches, pregnancy & various female conditions, including breastfeeding mums with mastitis, blocked ducts & engorgement.

My osteo journey started over 10 years ago massaging for an amazing Cairns Osteopath. Watching my boss confidently diagnose, treat & educate an acute patient on disc flare management, inspired me move to the GC to study osteopathic medicine.
My joy of supporting breastfeeding mums arose from suffering with breast pain feeding my son and hearing my friends’ struggles with mastitis which led to ending breastfeeding prematurely.

I love osteopathy as it empowers me to share my deep understanding of the human body with you through gentle hands-on therapy. Treatments are uniquely tailored to you and include massage & osteo techniques, emotional support, education & laughter (the best medicine).

My goal is to restore your body’s functional balance allowing you to heal naturally. We will work together to help you reach your health goals & return to doing the things you love without pain or restriction.

I look forward to meeting you and sharing the magic of osteopathy with you.

DIETITIAN

Kristy Wiseman

Kristy Wiseman

Hi, I’m Kristy, an Accredited Practising Dietitian, Accredited Nutritionist, and Diabetes Educator with over 10 years of experience. I’m originally a small town girl, but I’ve called the Gold Coast home for the past 10+ years. My passion lies in helping women and couples understand nutrition to optimise their health, particularly their fertility health.

Over my career, I’ve worked in community health, aged care, and the disability sector, but my personal fertility challenges led me to focus on reproductive health. Having faced losses and unsuccessful IVF rounds before welcoming my own little girl, I deeply understand the emotional journey of conception and assisted reproductive technology.

My specialties include fertility and pre-conception nutrition for both men and women, insulin resistance, pre-diabetes, gestational diabetes, pregnancy nutrition, PCOS, and endometriosis. I know the amount of information out there can be overwhelming and often inaccurate, so I am here to provide you with simple and practical evidence based nutritional advice and compassionate support to ensure you feel heard, understood and supported on your journey to conception and into parenthood.

In my spare time, I enjoy getting outdoors with my family, cooking up some delicious dishes in the kitchen, shopping at the local farmers markets, or if it’s a Saturday, at our local Parkrun.

I look forward to meeting you in the clinic soon!

RECEPTIONIST and ACUPUNCTURE STUDENT

Sarah Fewtrell

Hi, I’m Sarah Fewtrell. I am originally from Brisbane but have been on the Gold Coast now for over 10 years. I am currently in my final year of acupuncture study at Endeavour College in Southport.

COVID for me was the catalyst, in finally making the decision to switch from many years spent in the marketing and retail industry to the world of acupuncture and women’s health.

Having myself since been diagnosed with endometriosis and undergone two laparoscopic surgeries, I have a special interest in supporting women with their own gynaecological challenges and hope to continue my work in this area along with mental and emotional wellbeing when I finish my studies at the end of 2024.

In my spare time, I enjoy pilates, yoga and meditation, as well as exploring the beautiful beaches of the Gold Coast. I am also a proud dog mom and love spending time with my furry companions.

You will find me at the front desk on Tuesdays and Saturdays. I look forward to supporting you on your journey.
