Dr. Heather is a Traditional Chinese Medicine Doctor (TCMD) and Acupuncturist and stands at the forefront of holistic healthcare, blending ancient wisdom with modern science. Born with a passion for healing, Dr. Heather’s mission is to ensure that the powerful benefits of traditional Chinese medicine are within reach for every client, enabling them to personally experience the transformative healing potential it holds.
Dr. Heather was raised on a farm in Ontario. These early years not only taught her the value of hard work but also a holistic and natural approach to living. After over 18 years as a physiotherapy assistant working in neurorehabilitation, Dr. Heather’s thirst for knowledge and a natural affinity for holistic healing later led her to pursue a career in Traditional Chinese Medicine. In 2018, she achieved a significant milestone by graduating from the prestigious Canadian Institute for Traditional Chinese Medicine. This marked the beginning of a transformative career dedicated to improving the lives of countless individuals.
Dr. Heather’s mission has found its focal point in the realm of neuro rehabilitation. Dr. Heather has not only treated individuals with neurological conditions but also actively contributed to local research initiatives focused on the application of acupuncture in stroke rehabilitation. These research contributions have illuminated new paths toward recovery and healing for stroke clients not only in Alberta but across Canada. While placing neuro rehabilitation at the forefront of her practice, Dr. Heather also runs a general practice and relishes at the opportunity to impart the age-old wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine to empower individuals of all backgrounds with the natural healing secrets it offers.
Dr. Jennifer started her career as a Physical Therapist Assistant and worked both clinically and in the hospital as a Physical Therapist Assistant. While doing physical therapy she discovered Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture and decided to go back to school to learn about Chinese Medicine. She graduated from the Alberta College of Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2005 and began a private practice initially treating sports injuries – working with the Canadian Olympic teams as well as professional and amateur athletes. She also mentored under a 27th Generation Chinese Medicine Doctor and worked in his herbal medicine shop for many years where she learned a wealth of knowledge.
During this time Jennifer discovered all the hormone imbalances that athletes have. She focused on women’s health and took a variety of fertility, obstetric and hormone balancing courses to assist her patients more effectively. About 10 years ago Jennifer started treating brain and spinal cord injuries, becoming very interested in Neurological Acupuncture. She continued taking many specific types of Neurology courses in Acupuncture and learning from mentors both in China and Israel. For the last 10 years of her practice, Jennifer has been heavily involved with spinal cord injuries, concussion, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and strokes or any type of neuropathy related diseases.
Outside of work Jennifer is an avid outdoors person and enjoys backpacking trips, hiking, rock-climbing, travelling, running, swimming and powerlifting. She is an advocate for work life balance and enjoys doing speaking events as well as holistic retreat events.
