Rachel is a Registered Acupuncturist returning to her hometown of Fredericton after living in Nova Scotia and across Canada for the last ten years. She attended the Canadian College of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine in Halifax and graduated in 2017 with distinction. She has spent the last 5 years solidifying her knowledge and ability as a practitioner through continued education focusing on a wide range of specialities including mental health and addictions, women's reproductive health, and fertility.
Having a keen interest in the psychosomatic applications of the medicine she travelled to Boulder CO in 2018 to become certified as an Esoteric acupuncturist, learning from the founder of the practice Dr. Mikio Sankey. Rachel spent her last year in Halifax working at a shelter with folks experiencing a wide range of barriers and through this affirmed her deep empathy for individuals from all walks of life and their right to compassionate care. Rachel believes deeply in empowering the individual and offering a client forward, community centered approach. She believes we all have the wisdom within to guide our own healing and acupuncture is just one tool we can use to help decipher what our bodies are communicating.
When not working you can find Rachel out appreciating nature, attending a yoga class, cooking, and spending time with her loved ones
