Dr. Suzi Craig

Dr. Suzi spent most of her early childhood moving from state to state due to her parents work schedule and was able to spend 8 years on a farm in the northern part of Tasmania. It was actually with the regular local GP that she was first exposed to acupuncture as a form of treatment for pain relief, having suffered from headaches from an early age. As this was delivered by a GP, who coincidently also wasn’t Asian, she grew up not realising that this type of treatment wasn’t seen as ‘part of the norm’!

Suzi graduated in Melbourne from RMIT with a double degree in Human Biology and Chinese Medicine. Even though she has now had almost 9 years of clinical experience in treating women from a Chinese Medicine focus, it is the science of women’s health she enjoys too, so she is currently at the tail end of completing a masters in Reproductive Medicine through UNSW. What she loves most about this degree is the access to the most up-to-date evidence-based information on a range of courses, not just limited to assisted reproductive medicine but modules covering menopause and contraception too.

What Suzi has learnt as the years progressed is, while the focus of her treatments was initially on hormone support, what the cycle was doing and how well medications were working (with regards to assisted reproductive assistance), the crux of her treatment has shifted to also focus on three main areas:

  1. Digestion – how well the digestive system was functioning
  2. Stress management – with a large focus on overall emotional wellbeing
  3. Other lifestyle factors – including diet, sleep and movement.

Suzi found that shifting the focus to how well these three systems are functioning has led to an overall understanding for her patients to also understand how their hormones are functioning. Suzi doesn’t apply this focus to just women trying to conceive, but now uses this as the foundation for any persons overall optimal health and function.

As a strong advocate for using an integrative approach to health care, this aids in providing an individually tailored treatment approach with each of her patients.

Suzi’s 5 year undergraduate degrees of Chinese Medicine and Human Biology bought together her love of science and filled the gaps with eastern medicine to create a integrative health approach. With her warm and caring nature, she aims to provide a safe and comfortable environment to assist her clients with their health goals.

Dr Suzi works Fridays at Hawksburn Health in South Yarra from 10am-4pm. Book in online or email info@thewhichdoctor.com.au
