Anne began her studies at the University of Victoria, with a focus on Human physiology and anatomy. While there she was able to experience acupuncture to help with her own health. Her own fascination with traditional Chinese medicine and experience with acupuncture led her down a new path in health care. She began her study of traditional Chinese medicine here in Victoria and continued with internships in Calgary and in China.
After 4 years of study Anne started a busy practice in the Yukon in 2001. A few years later she returned to Victoria where she initially worked as an instructor and clinical supervisor at Oshio College of Acupuncture and Herbology. Anne joined the Lalli Care Clinic as their Registered Acupuncturist in 2007. Here she enjoys working with a wonderful team of health care professionals.
While Anne works with many type of injuries and health issues she has a special interest in the effects of chronic stress on our bodies. She often finds clients physical pain, digestive problems, insomnia and other illness are impacted by emotional stresses on the body.
In her free time you may see Anne running along Dallas road, organizing the cupcake walk at her daughter’s school or chasing her son around the park.
My approach is client centered. I take time to listen to you and your body. Then I strive to develop a comprehensive picture of your health, an understanding of your priorities for treatment, how your health impacts your life and how your life impacts your health.
Just as our lives change my treatment approach will change based on your needs leading up to and on the day of treatment. Acupuncture has made an incredible difference in my own health and in the lives of so many of my clients. It is my chosen method of treatment, however, I understand needles can create anxiety. Many anxious clients end up incredibly relaxed with the needles, and often fall asleep.
Anne incorporates a variety of techniques into her Traditional Chinese Medicine practice including Acupuncture, Cupping and Tui Na. If you are curious about which services may be of benefit to you please call or email her for more information.
