Vital Point describes a state of health
when the body’s vital energies are able
to flow freely without the disturbance
of pain or illness.
My intention is to provide whole body health care in a relaxed and nurturing environment. The aim as a healthcare practice, is to aid clients towards a greater awareness of what optimal health means to them. Acupuncture and Traditional Medicines have the ability to heal on many levels and the journey towards health is unique for every individual. It is my hope that through education, a supportive environment and an open mind, that every client will find new growth in his or her life.

As a Member of Acupuncturists Without Borders, I’ve had the honour of participating in a World Healing Exchange in Oaxaca, Mexico. During this trip, members provided Community Acupuncture clinics to underserved communities in remote locations.
In addition to my formalized education, I have also traveled extensively around the world. Through these travels, I’ve been introduced to a variety of healing modalities as well as various practices of mindfulness and meditation. I have a deep passion for the healing arts and mind-body awareness. I believe in the individual’s innate power and potential to heal. With each treatment, I provide a nurturing, supportive space allowing my clients to explore their healing potential to transform their lives and health. I believe and understand the power of the human spirit, the mind-body connection and the bodies amazing ability to heal. Balancing all aspects of the body, enabling them to work harmoniously together, great healing and balance can be achieved.
