Jennifer has been practicing in the alternative healthcare field for over fifteen years. Her core beliefs are based on taking a holistic approach with all patients and to recognize each patient as a unique individual. Jennifer believes the only way to achieve optimum health, is when the body and mind are in balance. These are powerful components of each patient’s healing journey that are integral to acupuncture and traditional chinese medicine.
Jennifer is a Registered Acupuncturist trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine. She graduated from MacEwan College in Edmonton in 2005 and interned at The Heze Medical College in Shandong province, China in the spring of the same year. Jennifer holds certification in: addiction treatment and acu-detox protocols; sport injury and physical pain treatment and management; meridian therapy for chronic pain; acupuncture in pregnancy; and auricular therapy (ear acupuncture). Jennifer also specializes in the treatment of hormone regulation, stress, and mental-emotional issues. As a registered massage therapist in Alberta for twelve years, Jennifer focused on sports-related injuries, muscular-skeletal pain and chronic repetitive strain injuries. Jennifer has worked for many years with various heli-ski companies and has experience treating ski and snowboard injuries. She uses both massage and acupuncture during her treatments as well as moxabustion, guasha, and cupping techniques to resolve underlying issues—relieving not only the symptoms, but getting to the root of the problem.
