Health & Wellness
I am grateful to join the Cortes community to offer my acupuncture practice.

Currently I operate my clinic at the OM studio in Mansons Hall every Friday from 10am to 7pm, and on Saturdays from 9am to 6pm. Acupuncture is covered by most of extended medical insurance policies and is also partially covered by MSP premium.

I am also available during the week for in-house treatments. Please email me to book an appointment or for more information.

Treatment Approach

I usually focus on a person’s body Qi and yin - yang balance during the treatment. If the balance is off, you will feel more pain. To treat autonomic nervous system imbalance I combine the Nagano Method and trigger point acupuncture in addition to traditional Chinese meridian acupuncture. This includes moxibustion, cupping, and massage.

My career in the health and wellness industry began at the Whistler body wrap in 1999. I became a certified spa practitioner in 2001 and in the past 20 years have worked for many of the well known hotel spas in Vancouver and Whistler. I went to the International College of Traditional Chinese medicine of Vancouver for the 5 year program. I have been a member of CTCMA as a registered Acupuncturist since 2011.

I enjoy attending seminars and workshops and learning from great teachers from all over the world.
