I am incredibly grateful to have found Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncture.
Finally a medicine that recognizes the person as a 'complete whole', a dynamic creature who's energy is always in motion. A medicine that does not only focus on the symptoms, but seeks to find the root of the issue and then work to pull the person's equilibrium back into balance.
I am honoured to be able to practice and share this amazing medicine with you.
I received my training at the International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine of Vancouver. I graduated with a Diploma in Acupuncture and a second Diploma in Chinese Herbalism. I furthered my practical education by taking an opportunity to attend a clerkship in the Tzu Chi Hospital, in Taipei, Taiwan. I was able to work closely with many renowned Taiwanese Doctors and interns who were absolutely phenomenal in knowledge and technique.
A little more...
I have been drawn to the Healing Arts for as long as I can remember. It started with learning about nutritional healing and vitamin deficiencies. Then it moved to learning more about the many systems of the body through Anatomy, Kinesiology, Yoga, and Thai Massage. After receiving certification to practice Thai Massage and to teach Akhanda Yoga, I became interested in energetic healing also. I studied Shambhala and Usui Reiki, and have completed my Reiki-master certification.
Drawing from all these modalities has truly enriched my life and practice of TCM.
