I’m Abbey, a Registered Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner. I am located at Arbutus Therapeutic Collective, a multidisciplinary clinic in downtown Courtenay. I am so lucky to be working with an amazing team of healthcare professionals.
I decided acupuncture was the right career path for me after seeing amazing results myself. I love the holistic, wellness-based approach to healing.
The focus of my practice is on women’s health and wellness. I love to empower women to take their health into their own hands and to provide education to help my clients meet their health goals.
I thought I was going to study Chinese medicine to help people get relief from their symptoms, but I got so much more. Chinese medicine is a lifestyle. I love sharing the philosophy Chinese medicine to create a holistic lifestyle and encourage longevity. I will provide you with support, encouragement and guidance on your healing path.
Working together, we can create a plan to treat your symptoms and get you on track for living a healthful, beautiful life.
If you are looking for support with current symptoms, wanting to improve your overall health, or are just curious about acupuncture and Chinese medicine, I would love to connect with you. Please email me with any questions, for help with booking an appointment or to schedule a complementary consultation.
Acupuncture is a technique in which tiny needles are placed in different points on the body. The points are chosen based on individual presentation; no two treatments are alike.
Chinese herbal medicine has been around for centuries. The formulas used today were developed thousands of years ago based on the taste, temperature, and properties of herbs. Recent research has provided evidence that these formulas are effective.
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to help promote labour and prepare the body for delivery. For optimal results, labour preparation should be started 3-4 weeks prior to delivery and continue once weekly until labour begins.
