Registered Doctor of Chinese Medicine
Shannon completed a 5 year program in Chinese Medicine and holds a diploma of Doctor of Chinese Medicine from the International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine of Vancouver. Her studies include clinical practice at the China Medical University and Hospital in Taiwan. Shannon also completed a 2 year Master’s Mentorship Program with Sharon Weizenbaun at the White Pine Institute and continues to study with the White Pine Institute.
While Shannon’s interest in Chinese Medicine is wide ranging, her passion for women’s health has led her to pursue training in workshops by some of the leaders in Chinese Medicine for fertility and obstetrics including Sharon Weizenbaum, Bob Flaws, Debra Betts and Jane Lyttleton. Shannon was a partner in Acumamas for 6 years and has extensive hours of experience attending labours both as an acupuncturist as well as a birth doula. Shannon currently sits on the board of the Obstetrical Acupuncture Association.
I love the alternative approach to treating health that chinese medicine offers. It treats the body as a whole. It sees the relationship between the health of the mind and the rest of the body rather than treating them as disconnected from one another. When we come to understand how diet, lifestyle and emotional wellbeing are the pillars of health, it is then that we are able to transform. The goal of Chinese Medicine is not to create a dependency on acupuncture or herbal therapy but rather help the body come back into balance. I am continually amazed at the body’s own power to heal.
