From an early age, I have been fascinated with the human body and the mysteries of the natural world. This influence fueled my life-long passion for martial arts and propelled me to study Biochemistry at McGill University where I completed my Bachelor’s Degree. However, it wasn’t until I began to practice Qi Gong and Tai Chi upon moving to Victoria, that I found my true calling and went on to complete the Doctor of TCM program at Oshio College of Acupuncture and Herbology.
It has been incredibly fulfilling working with clients as a Registered Acupuncturist and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Practitioner since 2017. I understand the deep impact an injury or illness can have on one’s life from personal experience, which is why I feel grateful to be of service in helping others find their way back to a state of health and wellness.
My clinical approach reflects my desire to integrate Western scientific knowledge with Eastern holistic understanding. In order to achieve the best possible results for my clients, I utilize a number of traditional and modern therapeutic techniques, including acupuncture and electro-acupuncture, tui na massage and myofascial release, cupping, gua sha, moxibustion, and TCM herbal remedies. With each individual case, I work to determine the root cause of injury or dysfunction and provide the appropriate therapies, knowledge, and lifestyle suggestions to resolve the issue and prevent any future occurrence.
My intention is to offer a safe and nurturing space where you can receive the respect, compassion, and care you require for healing to occur. I love to empower you through education and provide solutions and practices that will allow you to take health into their own hands. My ultimate mission is to support each individual’s healing process by meeting you where you are at and working together to achieve their healthcare goals while cultivating a thriving foundation of health and well-being.
