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 health & wellness 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 any health challenge.

EXPEDITING RECOVERY with ACUPUNCTURE A concussion is typically a mild brain injury caused by an impact to the head. These are common among athletes but


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).
