Holly is a Registered Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner. She completed her 4-year diploma at the Kootenay Columbia College of Integrative Health Sciences (KCCIHS) in Nelson, BC and is a registered practitioner with the CTCMA in the province of BC. In her early 20’s she started a career in the administrative world which she enjoyed but felt that she wanted to help people with a more hands on approach. It was personal experience with acupuncture which helped to manage her own ailments that led her to believe that Chinese Medicine was the path for her.
“What I have come to understand about Chinese Medicine is that there isn’t just one way in which to heal an ailment. There are many perspectives and modalities that can aid your patient. As a practitioner, I recognize that each patient is their own being and has their own story and through this unique story is where the answers and the diagnosis lies.”

-Headaches and migraines
-Acute and chronic pain
-Common cold and flu

-And so much more!!

-Tui Na massage
-Gua Sha (Chinese ‘scraping’ technique)
