JEN’S STRENGTH AS YOUR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER
Her strength as a health practitioner reflects a deeply caring nature, an inquisitive mind that seeks to find and balance the root of your health issues and a profoundly deep respect and understanding of the human body.
What Happens In a Session With Jen
Jen’s sessions begin with compassionate listening to your health concerns and desires. She then skillfully forms a treatment plan to address your concerns. Jen artfully blends the modalities of Chinese Medicine to provide effective sessions that invite your body to rest, re-balance and heal.
While you are having your acupuncture treatment, Jen creates guidelines for lifestyle, diet and exercise for you to do on your own to enhance the work that is done in the clinic.
After your online session with Jen, she develops a treatment plan and sends it by email. Any recommended supplements can be sent by mail or courier.
It Started with My Own Health Issues
Having overcome many personal health issues including fractured vertebrae with severe back pain, insomnia and post-partum anxiety, Jen deeply believes in the power of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, excellent nutrition, balanced exercise and lifestyle. These are necessary to first balance, then improve and finally transform your health and well-being.
Working as a Naturalist introduced me to the healing power of Plants
Jen began studying herbal medicine by correspondence while working as a Naturalist for Parks Canada in Banff and Yoho National Parks. She was intrigued but wanted to know more so she applied to and enrolled and completed 1st year studies at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto, Ontario. Smitten by the power of acupuncture and chinese herbs Jen transferred schools and then completed another 4 years of study at the prestigious Academy of Oriental Sciences (ACOS) in Nelson, BC. Jen graduated with honours and was awarded the Citizenship Award for outstanding community volunteer work. Jen has a deep passion for alternative medicine and continues to study with the most skilled and knowledgeable practitioners of Chinese Medicine. Now, she dedicates her practice to treating issues specifically related to fertility, body pain, women’s health, sleep, pediatrics, body pain and mental-emotional health.
WHAT SPARKS JEN’S SPIRIT
Jen is an avid outdoors women spending as much time outside as she can hiking, biking, swimming, cross country or downhill skiing with her wonderful son Finn alongside. She has a passion for local, organic foods and tries to find what she can’t grow in her garden at the farmers market. She loves knitting baby hats for friends’ new children and socks for her and her son. She makes her own granola and strawberry jam. She loves to lie in her hammock and read while eating Coconut Ice Cream in the summer. Her heart is lifted by gliding over snowy white cross country trails on skiis in winter. She mostly homeschools her amazing, curly haired 7 year old son when he is not at Forest School climbing trees. She has been with her life partner Eddy for 16 years.
