registered acupuncturist

 

I am a Registered Acupuncturist at Elements Wellness Centre.  I graduated from the University of Calgary with a Bachelor of Kinesiology degree in 2004 and spent several years travelling and working abroad in South East Asia and Europe.  After responding very well to acupuncture for autoimmune and digestive issues, I discovered my true career path and began my studies at the International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine of Vancouver.  In addition to my studies completed in Vancouver, I have studied Constitutional Facial Acupuncture with Mary Elizabeth Wakefield in New York, and Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture for Face, Neck, and Abdomen with Martha Lucas.

Besides an acupuncturist, I am a mama, and a partner/wife/teammate. I have a love of great design: clothing, architecture, art.  I have a weakness for a good quality dark chocolate, and a steadfast craving for travel.

I am a solar-powered perfectionist seeking a minimalist existence.

I am truly blown away by the intricacy of the human body. There are an estimated 37.2 trillion cells in the human body, all working together to keep you functioning day-to-day. With so many processes in place, there is a lot of room for things to go wrong.  What I love about acupuncture is that it is working with the body's own healing power, a gentle reminder when normal processes stray off-track.  I believe that taking control of your own health is one of the most rewarding things you can do for yourself.
