Andrea is a Certified Acupuncturist and Herbalist registered and in good standing with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncturists and practitioners (CTCMA), in British Columbia. She holds a BSc in Agriculture from the University of Manitoba. Andrea is also a teacher and practitioner in the art and science of Yoga. Andrea has a background in dance, and is a long time practitioner of meditation.

Andrea is a life long learner. She loves to study the mechanics of motion, and has furthered her Western Science training in the study of Human Anatomy, Kinesiology, Sports Injury Rehabilitation, and Human Physiology at the University of Winnipeg. She combines this western training with the wealth of wisdom she has discovered in her studies of the Eastern Healing arts. Andrea avails the wisdom of eastern healing to her clients by analyzing each client in a wholistic way, considering the whole person, and not only the current injury or imbalance with which they present.

Andrea employs Acupuncture, Chinese Massage (Tui Na), Diet Therapy, Moxibustion therapy, and Herbal Medicine in her practice. She will also often advise her clients on prescriptive exercises and stretches as part of ongoing home treatment and self care. In this way, she educates and empowers her clients to understand how their ailment may have arisen, and how they may restore balance, harmony and mental well being in their body and mind.

When Andrea is not in clinic she enjoys her annual visits to both New Zealand and Canadian destinations to spend time with family. Closer to home, Andrea likes to get out as often as possible to hike and kayak on and around this amazing island.
