Upon graduation from the University of Calgary’s Haskayne School of Business, and earning her Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation, Chelsea re-located to the west coast to pursue her keen interest in holistic health at Victoria’s Pacific Rim College. Chelsea is a graduate of the Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Practitioner Program and is a Registered Acupuncturist with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of British Columbia. She is currently in the final stages of completing her Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine Diploma at Pacific Rim College.
Chelsea is inspired by the profound affects that Chinese Medicine has on the human body, mind and spirit. Acupuncture effectively treats a vast array of aches and ailments, from physical pain and injuries, to insomnia and anxiety. Chelsea’s interests include women’s health, pregnancy, pre/post-natal care, pediatrics, digestive health and mental health.
Chelsea uses a holistic treatment approach rooted in the foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Applying the ancient techniques of Acupuncture, Chelsea helps patients connect to their bodies’ “energy highways” (a.k.a. meridians), further facilitating the ability to nourish, rebuild and remove blockages. Treatment plans are customized to support each patient’s unique needs, target the root of the syndrome pattern, and create the most effective and efficient results. Supportive therapies such as moxibustion, gua sha, cupping, tui na, diet therapy and lifestyle advice can also be incorporated into treatments.
