Helping you achieve your health goals by creating an individualized nutrition, exercise, and/or lifestyle plan that is tailored to your body and its’ specific needs. A focus on plans that support weight loss & metabolism, enhanced performance, or decreasing inflammation.
Using nature’s herbal toolbox to help heal and strengthen your body and mind. Herbs have medicinal properties that can aid the body in a variety of ways. Custom teas and/or tincture blends can be formulated in office for your individual case.
Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine
Promoting rebalance in your body with the use of Tradition Chinese Medicine, including the support of acupuncture, cupping, electro-stimulation, and herbs. A focus on using a blend of Chinese Medicine acupuncture and MSK-focused acupuncture.
Diagnostic Lab Testing
Your body has a unique physiology, and using targeted laboratory testing we can provide you with an in-depth insight into what biochemical mechanisms may be causing your symptoms. I offer conventional blood testing (similar testing your family doctor can order) as well as specialized lab tests that are more comprehensive (IgG Food Sensitivity Testing, DUTCH test, Salivary Hormone Testing, and more). Normal isn’t optimal, and I want you feeling your best!
Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture
Cosmetic acupuncture, also referred to as facial rejuvenation acupuncture, is a safe and relaxing treatment used to reduce the signs of aging, improve skin elasticity and texture, reduce acne and pore size, and overall provide a brightening to the face. Methods used include facial and scalp massage, acupuncture, and gua sha. The aesthetic and natural benefits of facial acupuncture have been found to have similar effects as botox.
Naturopathic Doula Services
A combination of doula services with naturopathic protocols are provided to assist you before, during, and after labour. My aim is to leave you feeling supported and empowered. Therapies include physical support, including pain management techniques through the use of acupressure, hydrotherapy, and homeopathy, as well as emotional support. Research has shown that the support during labour by a Doula is associated with improved maternal and fetal health, shorter labour time, less complications, and reduced need for medical intervention!
Areas of Special Interest
I work with couples to optimize their pre- conception, support fertility treatments, and to achieve and maintain a healthy pregnancy. Whether you are just beginning your fertility journey or have been trying to conceive for months-years, I provide support to help you achieve your pregnancy goals. Addressing both the health of the egg and sperm, I aim to support both couples in their fertility journey.
Pre & Post- Natal Support
Helping you navigate your way through each of the trimesters of pregnancy, and into the ‘fourth trimester’ of postpartum. Supporting you both physically and mentally through pregnancy, and helping prepare your body and mind for labour. I use modalities such as nutrition, acupuncture, herbs, and lifestyle. And following this support I help new moms regain their confidence into the new stages of motherhood.
Hormones influence how our body functions, no matter the stage in life – whether that be in puberty, reproductive age, perimenopause, or menopause. When these hormones shift out of balance, signs and symptoms, such as cycle irregularities, pain and bloating, anxiety, low libido, weight gain, acne, etc, can result. I support my patients through assessing their hormones with bloodwork and other testing, and treat them using appropriate herbs, foods, and supplementation.
Working with children’s health is very important to me. As a mom, I have spent countless hours looking into the ways to support babies and children with nourishing foods, safe products, and through the additive benefit of supplements and herbs. Whether it be supporting your child’s immune system, creating recipes that support their growth and development, healing their skin, or giving their mind and focus a boost, there are many safe and effective options to be used!
