Rebecca is a Registered Doctor of Chinese Medicine (DR.TCM) and Acupuncturist (R.Ac.) with the CTCMA of British Columbia.
She completed her 5-year Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine education at Pacific Rim College (Victoria, B.C), PCU College of Holistic Medicine (Burnaby, B.C.), and also holds an Honours B.Sc. from Dalhousie University (Halifax, N.S.).
In addition to her private practice, Rebecca is also currently an instructor of Acupuncture at Boucher College of Naturopathic Medicine, and is a past instructor of Herbal Medicine at PCU College of Holistic Medicine.
Rebecca has pursued advanced learning in fertility, musculoskeletal pain and injury management, addictions, Bowen Therapy, and Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture. Having a keen interest in Reproductive Medicine, she completed part of her clinical internship in this field under the supervision of a well-known specialist in Vancouver, B.C.
In her practice of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, Rebecca’s areas of focus lie in the treatment of pain and injury, gastrointestinal issues, weight loss/gain, cosmetic acupuncture, stress and depression/anxiety, addictions, endocrine disorders, skin disorders, and women’s health issues. In the scope of women’s health, Rebecca is experienced in addressing fertility concerns, menstrual problems, menopausal symptoms, as well as providing healthy pregnancy support.
With a background in Organic Agriculture, Rebecca’s love for Chinese Medicine developed from a love for farming. She likens the balance of wellness in the body to that of a natural ecosystem; optimum health and productivity can be achieved when the entire system is addressed as a whole, and attention is paid to all the small details that make it work. After being introduced to the holistic theories of Chinese Medicine, which takes into consideration the patient’s constitution and customizes treatment for each unique situation, she found it was a natural fit.
Coupling a passion for the Medicine with a genuine love for helping people, Rebecca strives to help her patients create their best environment in which their ultimate healing potentials can be attained.
Outside of clinic, Rebecca enjoys all things “outdoorsy”, and can be found hiking, fishing, canoeing, camping, gardening, and being an all-round plant nerd.
