HOLISTIC PRACTICE

PHILOSOPHY

IMG_3488_edited.jpg

I realized a strong desire to study the human mind and body early in life, and earned credentials as a Social Service Worker, Holistic Nutritionist and Shiatsu/Tuina Practitioner. This Education and experience inspired interest and learning in treating complicated health conditions. I made the big decision for a move to Victoria, BC to study and intern at the intensive 4-5-year TCM program and am so grateful for that choice.  I currently am in good standing with The CTCMA as a Registered Acupuncturist.

 

My approach to treatment is focused and gentle. I believe in considering the uniqueness of each individual and helping clients feel empowered toward a healthy and balanced life.

My passion and respect for Acupuncture traditions continues to grow as I evolve in my practice focusing on Japanese style Acupuncture (Kiiko Matsumoto Style).  This style uses shallow insertions and specific palpation areas to gain instant feedback from clients to help diagnose and treat a large array of health issues. 

Currently, my treatment style blends many of the techniques studied under the Traditional Chinese Medicine Umbrella. A typical session with me may include a combination of Palpation and Shallow Needle Insertion, Auricular (Ear) Acupuncture, Okyu Moxa, Cupping (I do love cupping!), Gua sha, Tuina + Shiatsu Acupressure and/or TCM nutrition.

"Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”
