Emily is a recent graduate of the Canadian College of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine where she received a Diploma in acupuncture.
Previous to this training she earned a Bachelor of Science and a Diploma in Animal Health Technology from the Nova Scotia Agricultural College in 2005. Since then she has been living in Eastern Passage and working as a Registered Veterinary Technician, which she continues to practice still.
Emily has been interested in complimentary medicine modalities since a young age when she began using chiropractic, massage, acupuncture and physiotherapy to recover from injuries and reduce chronic pain. She had also seen the benefits of these treatments for animals when as a student she worked alongside veterinarians who practice alternative veterinary medicine. Despite her love of veterinary medicine, after ten years in the field, she was considering a career shift and knew that acupuncture would be a perfect fit.
During her student clinical practice, Emily has developed a special interest in treating sports injuries, chronic pain, and neurological disorders. She believes that the best medicine is combining complimentary techniques with modern health care to help patients thrive. She is excited to be practicing acupuncture and hopes to be part of your health care team.
