Carolyn ButlerChinese Medicine Doctor

A fertility journey is not just for those who wish to be a parent. The beauty of fertility is that it is an insight into the health of the body and the mind. Carolyn works to bring these two oft-separated elements of ourselves together using Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture and associated techniques.

She has worked with several leading mentors over the years to hone her craft, most recently working with a physician in Nanjing, China. His gentle nature and simple answers cemented what many of her teachers in Australia had counseled: that the beauty of Chinese medicine lies in its simplicity. Carolyn brings this simplicity into practice with her patients, blending it with a keen interest in evidence-based medicine.

Discussions of endometriosis and other chronic conditions that disproportionately affect women with few answers bring on passionate collegial discussions with other health professionals. This has led to a strong interest in the intricacies of endometriosis particularly, which she continues to investigate.

And yes, ‘women’s health’ refers to more than your menstrual health or fertility! Your general and mental health is on her mind. Carolyn prides herself at being a welcoming practitioner and is respectful of age, faith, nationality and gender diversity.

She is nationally registered with Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA) as an acupuncturist and herbalist and is a member of Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA).
