Amanda Cox-Edwards has practised acupuncture since 2003 and has a wealth of experience working with a variety of health conditions. She aims to not only improve the physical health of her patients, but to support them emotionally and walk beside them as they take their journey to improved health.
Amanda creates 360-degree treatment plans that combine acupuncture, tuina massage, Chinese herbal medicine, cupping, moxabustion, and dietary and lifestyle advice ensuring that every treatment plan is tailored to the individual.
She established Upwey Acupuncture in early 2019, after gaining 16 years of clinical practice at top clinics in Melbourne and London, including the Fertile Ground Health Group (Melbourne), and the Kailash Centre and Nelsons Homeopathic Clinic (London). She joined Victoria Avenue Wellbeing in Albert Park in 2017.
Amanda works with women’s issues of all types (from menarche to menopause), and other general health issues. She has great familiarity in treating gynaecological issues, assisting couples in improving natural fertility, accompanying IUI and IVF cycles, and treating throughout pregnancy and post natally. Her postgraduate studies have focussed in these areas, and she has also trained in paediatric acupuncture.
Amanda trained in London, where she ran a busy practice for over 13 years. She returned to her hometown of Melbourne in early 2017. During her time in the UK she was a member and secretary of the London Acupuncture Childbirth Team, and a founding member of the Bristol Acupuncture Childbirth & Conception Team. She also ran the London College of Traditional Acupuncture teaching clinics, and was a member of the LCTA teaching staff for several years.
As a member of AHPRA and AACMA she is government regulated, and is able to provide health insurance rebates. HICAPs reclaims are available at both of her clinics. Amanda has set up the Outer Eastern Acupuncture Group and works with many other practitioners locally in Melbourne to create comprehensive treatment plans for her patients. She retains links to the UK as an Overseas Member of the British Acupuncture Council.
