Daily stresses, poor diet, inconsistent exercise, trauma, accidents and age can weaken the immune system leaving you prone to aches and pains. Acupuncture improves circulation and removes blockages to the areas experiencing
discomfort or insufficient functioning.
Very basically, acupuncture is a holistic medicine that considers the body imbalances that lead to dysfunction. We bring balance to the flow of circulation (consisting of energy, blood and body fluids).
Once balance is restored – healing can take place.
Approximately 2,000 different acupuncture points lie along the body’s meridians. Acupuncture stimulates these points with needles, pressure or micro-current (Needleless) to relieve the blockage in the flow of energy, enabling the body to heal.
In the Western view, acupuncture likely works by stimulating the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord)
to release chemicals called neurotransmitters and hormones.
These chemicals dull pain, boost the immune system and regulate various body functions.

Tracy lives by the mantra that a wellness and abundance mindset are the keys to leading a healthy, full and ultimately “best” life.
Tracy’s journey into Natural Medicine began in 2005. Over the course of the next 12 years, she worked with thousands of clients through her Pre and Postnatal fitness classes, Personal Training and Lifestyle Coaching services. More and more drawn to non-invasive health therapies, and ultimately to the ancient and proven practices of Chinese Medicine, specifically Acupuncture and dietary therapy, Tracy pursued the intensive 3 year training and Rigorous Board exams to become a Registered Acupuncturist in the Province of BC in 2018 (CTCMA)
