Registered TCM Practitioner
Although I have been practicing oriental medicine for 7 short years, my life experiences, professional training, and personal trials have taken me all over the world and through different systems of medicine in the search for truth. Now, I offer this synthesis to those who are on a journey of recovery, wellness, and self-actualization. Healing isn’t just about feeling better, it’s also about living from your greatest potential. It’s learning the lessons of our imbalances so that we can become more conscious.
No matter where you are at in this journey – the beginning of
discovery, an established routine of self-care, or an actualized
consciousness practice – I am here for you to help you along the way. I am trained in methods that not only help the body to recover but also elevate the spiritual consciousness. This modality is called esoteric acupuncture. Through this, I hope to give you a glimpse of what is possible in the way you see your life and to make the path forward more clear.

What does Acupuncture treat?
Acupuncture is a powerful way to treat a whole host of neuromuscular pains. Traumatic injury or repetitive strain are the most common cause of pain.
Healing occurs when the needles tap into the nociceptors and proprioceptors of the fascia. The brain receives strong signals to both release endorphins and restore blood circulation to the site of injury. Often you will feel an immediate shift in the area of pain.
Sciatica, frozen shoulder, back pain, knee pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, upper cross syndrome aka "tech neck", thoracic outlet syndrome and more respond very well to acupuncture.
We have several different techniques to address your pain. You will get a customized treatment tailored to your specific needs.
ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, STRESS
Stress is endemic in our society today. Our nervous system is constantly revved up while our tolerance and bandwidth are shrinking. Not only are our moods affected, but our sleep, our digestion, and our energy all suffer.
Acupuncture taps into the nervous system. You can feel an immediate down regulation of your internalized tension. I’ve created this space to allow your body the time it needs to just ~rest~ and sort itself out. Some folks need 2 hour naps, some need only 20 minute naps. We honor your body by letting it decide how long your nap is.
By regulating the nervous system, you get cognitive and emotional bandwidth back, you release stored up tension, you have more room for joy, and more energy to sleep deeply. You also have better circulation to improve digestion and move freely throughout your day without pain.
ACUPUNCTURE AND OPIOD CRISIS
Physicians are being asked by Health Canada to take a collaborative approach to address this problem. A National Pain Strategy is being created to provide doctors with tools and options for pain control in lieu of opiate prescriptions.
Acupuncture is fast becoming the new pain medicine of choice by doctors.
Many studies having been done showing the efficacy of Acupuncture’s ability to reduce and often eliminate pain.

"Lynn is the consummate professional and a genuinely talented healer. I first visited Lynn when I was suffering from extreme seasonal allergies. Each year, since my move to Canada, my eczema had been getting worse and worse. In March/April of each year I would spend weeks struggling with red raw eyes and extreme itchiness. In 2014 my symptoms reached such an aggravated state that I spent three months with red raw eyes, in so much distress I was beside myself. One day a woman came into my work, took one look at me and gave me Lynn’s number, telling me I had to go see her. I have not looked back since. My first visit to Lynn gave me instant relief from the burning itchiness. Three subsequent visits, a week apart, brought about complete relief from symptoms. That was four years ago, since then I haven’t experienced even the slightest issue from seasonal allergies. I go back to Lynn whenever I have any kind of health issue and have always experienced immediate and effective relief from symptoms. I am happy to unreservedly recommend Lynn as the best alternative healer I have been to."
"I started to see Lynn for acupuncture well over 5 years ago looking for an alternative, holistic approach to deal with depression and anxiety. Lynn offered me a welcoming, safe nonjudgmental space where I soon began to feel the benefits of regular treatments. Lynn is a compassionate, experienced and very knowledgeable practitioner who is very passionate about the healing benefits acupuncture can provide. I have learned through personal experience, and Lynn's guidance that acupuncture is a powerful and effective way to treat the often debilitating and emotionally painful symptoms of unresolved trauma. I highly recommend Lynn and wish her all the best in setting up her new practice."

“I have suffered sciatica over the years. The last time being nearly three months. It was all I could do to get to the bathroom! I went to see Lynn , she said she had a new method of treating sciatica. I had two sessions, the first one, relieved the pain right away, I felt sore and bruised, but could walk! After the following session the next day, I felt tall and completely pain free, I felt like dancing! It was hard for me to believe that it could be treated so quickly after suffering so long. Thank you Lynn , you are very good at what you do!”
