Experience the natural healing power of Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine!
-A professional, compassionate practitioner of Acupuncture and injection therapies-
-Graduate of a four year Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner's program-
After spending a couple of years back packing through south-east Asia and India, I was inspired to leave behind a career in design and dedicate myself to learning more about Oriental medicine.
I returned from India the summer of the year 2000 and signed up to begin school that September. In 2005, I graduated with diplomas in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine from the Canadian College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Victoria, BC.
I settled in Kelowna December 2010 after spending the past five years working in Calgary at an integrative medicine centre within Mount Royal University (Optimal Therapies), and working as an examiner for Alberta's Acupuncture licensing board (CAAA). I gradually eased back into practice after having a baby in March 2011, and joined the team at Okanagan Health & Performance full-time in March of 2012!
I thoroughly enjoy treating a wide range of conditions including sports injuries, pain, chronic illnesses, reproductive issues and love to see people reach their fullest potential. I enjoy blending traditional acupuncture with research based treatment protocols and modern acupuncture styles (IMS, trigger point needling, motor point acupuncture, injection therapies, acupuncture physical medicine, etc.).
- Since graduating, I have gained valuable experience treating couples struggling with infertility and other reproductive problems, and then following them as needed for pregnancy, labor support and postpartum care.
- Post graduate training I have done include training in pain and injury management (including motor point acupuncture, trigger point injections ), training in treating PCOS and endometriosis, facial rejuvination and acupoint injection therapies.
Acupuncture can provide a great, low risk option for many patients who may be struggling with many different types of health issues. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about any specific condition and/or treatment.
