Kristen is a graduate of the 4-year Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner program at the International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Vancouver. Following graduation, she completed an internship at Tzu Chi General Hospital in Taipei, further enhancing her clinical experience and understanding of Chinese medicine. This internship brought things full-circle, as her first experience with acupuncture was in Taiwan many years ago, while teaching English there after completing her undergraduate degree.
Kristen has a particular interest in treating pain, digestive dysfunction, women’s health, allergic conditions, stress and fatigue. She uses acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, trigger point release, cupping, moxibustion and gua sha, along with lifestyle and dietary consultation, to help her patients achieve and maintain optimal health.
Kristen worked for many years in the film industry in Vancouver before deciding to go back to school to pursue her passion for acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. After struggling with travel-related digestive issues for many years, and trying a host of western and alternative medicine treatments, she found acupuncture and TCM dietary recommendations to be the only things that offered relief. While the holistic nature of this ancient medicine had always made a lot of sense, she was truly amazed at the results.
Kristen is also part of the multidisciplinary group of practitioners who treat the UBC Track and Field Team, addressing acute and chronic injuries, as well as offering ongoing preventative care.
