Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine

Since 2004

As of 2021, after 25 years in Vancouver, building and practicing in 3 successful multi-practitioner clinics, helping thousands of people reach their reproductive and sexual health goals, my wife Chantal, my 3 boys (Salix Ari and Axel), Ollie (pooch), Soul (kitty) and I moved to Salt Spring Island to start a new chapter of life. I am thankful that I have arrived at a point in my life and career, through hard work, study, and many years of experience as a facilitator of others healing, that I know I have something valuable to offer anyone going through infertility, endometriosis, pregnancy birth & postpartum, menopause, acute / chronic pain, or any other health challenge.

LOW BACK PAIN

Inevitably, having practiced Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture for over 20 years has brought me deep into the world of pain and injury, low back pain being a majority of my cases (i.e. sciatica, SI joint pain, slipped/herniated discs, osteoarthritis, facet joining syndrome, vertebral degeneration, piriformis syndrome, etc). Contrary to common belief, in my experience, in most cases there is much that can be done to relieve and manage these conditions.

Endometriosis

Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can be very effective at addressing symptoms associated with endometriosis. Our primary goal is to reduce pain with secondary goals being to improve fertility, balance hormone levels, reduce inflammation surrounding the ovaries and uterus, regulate heavy menstrual bleeding. The approach with Chinese medicine treats the condition by addressing the specific mechanism causing pain and reducing other sources of inflammation that may be contributing to the full set of symptoms experienced.
