Acupuncture

Philosophy

It was the desire to make a difference in people’s lives that put me on the path of acupuncture. I am a firm believer that healing comes from within. Diseases are due to an imbalance and as a health professional, I see my work as a partnership where I assist my clients to restore balance and thus regain their vitality. My goal is to meet them where they are, with the empathy, genuine listening skills and dedication that are defining aspects of my personality, identify the blockage that threw them off the path and help them on their healing journey.

Besides a lively interest in modern science, I am fascinated by the so called ancestral medicines whose common ground is to consider Humans as an integral part of their environment. Acupuncture is a gentle and yet powerful medicine, even though several thousand years old, it is a surprisingly modern healing art that we only begin to understand with the means of cutting-edge science.

Specialized approaches: Communication is the key

Building a solid and trusting relationship with my clients is the basis of my work. I find that if I take the time to listen, we get to the point faster and more efficiently. I also believe in sharing knowledge and try to explain and help my clients to better understand the dynamics of their ailments. Exercises, dietary and lifestyle advice are part of my treatment approach.

I am trained to use the NADA protocol for addiction and trauma, set up community and emergency clinics for PTSD in the aftermath of a traumatic event. I like to integrate Five elements acupuncture in my treatment approach.

Specialties:

Acupuncturists are generalists so I can relief pain and address about any condition that can be treated with acupuncture. But my special interests are the treatment of emotional trauma, mental problems like anxiety and depression, addictions, stress-related ailments, and follow-up treatments during pregnancy and postnatal care.

Training:

DEC from College de Rosemont in 2016

The program included internships at the school clinic and I also chose an internship in the treatment of addiction at the Centre de réadaptation en dépendance de Montréal where I acquired advanced skills it he treatment of addiction.

Advanced training in the treatment of trauma, palliative care, pregnancy and postnatal care

Experience:

As the owner of the acupuncture clinic in Lac-Megantic, I have been treating a wide variety of health problems. I also worked at Physiotherapie Universelle in Pointe-Claire, where I took care of patients referred to me by physicians to help with pain due to traffic or work accidents.

 

Languages spoken:

I’m fluent in English, French and German and happily work with clients in any of these languages.
