Amy Forth – Acupuncturist
Women’s health | Fertility | Pregnancy | General health
Amy has a wealth of experience with patients seeking treatment for fertility, pregnancy, pain and other general health issues and has been practicing Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture for over ten years. She focuses on caring, patient centered, evidence based treatment and support.
Amy often treats:
- fertility issues,
- women’s health issues such as irregular and painful periods, endometriosis and PCOS,
- back and neck pain,
- male factor fertility issues and
- pregnancy complaints such as morning sickness, back pain, carpal tunnel, pelvic instability, birth preparation and breech presentation.
A warm and knowledgeable practitioner, Amy has a vision of developing acupuncture as a mainstream and accessible part of modern healthcare. She originally moved to Sydney from Melbourne a few years ago to complete a Master of Global Health. She is very proud (and relieved!) to say that this is now complete. With a strong desire for further research into integrative health care practices, Amy offers an integrative approach and brings her own research into her everyday practice. She prefers working together and communicating with her patients’ GPs, specialists, and other healthcare providers. Amy is an advocate of a real team approach to care – which hugely benefits her patients.
Amy also works as a health educator and regularly presents to healthcare practitioners about acupuncture research and treatment. As a leader in her field she has presented to many leading health care institutions on acupuncture for fertility and pregnancy care, including IVF clinics, hospitals and obstetrics practices.
In her spare time, Amy may be found at the beach reading a book or doing an ocean swim, in unusual positions at a yoga class, or chatting away over a cup of tea.
