I was educated in Traditional Chinese Medicine in both Canada and China, graduating as a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine from the International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Vancouver. I also received my certification as an Internationally Registered Hypnotherapist and counsellor with the IMDHA in 2010.
I am a founding member of the Acupuncture Sports Medicine Group of British Columbia, as well as a previous board member of both the Qualified Acupuncturist and Traditional Chinese Medicine Association of BC and the Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine Association of BC. I was formerly a liaison to ICBC for the profession and a clinical instructor for Acupuncture in the Langara College Traditional Chinese Medicine program.
As such, I am trained in Acupuncture, Cupping, Hypnosis, Ear Candling, Herbal Medicine, Homeopathy, Lymphatic Drainage Massage, (Qi Gong) Chinese Energy Therapy, (Tui Na) Chinese Massage, and both Western and Chinese medical diagnosis and assessment, and am also a master Aromatherapist.
I have extensively trained in the use of injectables and have used them in my practice since 2004. I am skilled in Prolotherapy and Segmental Therapy, which are tools to repair and heal chronic pain and joint issues, and am a member of ARIABC, an acupuncture injection group. I also studied myofascial injection with Dr. Hal Blatman, an orthopedic surgeon from Ohio. I have studied Shen Qi, so I have vast training in energetic healing modalities, and have also achieved a masters level in Heart Resonance Healing. I trained with a Shen Master from California in 2006 in the new technique of Esoteric Acupuncture, which uses higher consciousness to heal old life patterns and behaviors and moves the patient toward a holistic healthy and connected self view, as opposed to an illness view, as well as a Shen Master from Arizona in 1998 to initiate and develop intuitive healing and diagnosis capabilities.
