Dr. Vikki McGuire is a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine (DTCM). Graduating as a Registered Acupuncturist from the Calgary College of TCM in 2008, she continued her studies to receive her DTCM.
Using Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques in her treatment sessions such as cupping, acupuncture, vibrational tuning forks, meditation, intra muscular stimulation (IMS), herbal prescriptions or nutritional/ lifestyle plans – she has many different avenues to help you achieve optimal health results. The newest technique that Vikki has become versed in is Sports Medicine Acupuncture. It consists of muscle testing to identify weaknesses in the body and spinal mobilization to assess and treat changes in the spine, address issues with postural imbalances, musculoskeletal injuries, pain and other internal conditions.
Vikki has a strong interest in functional movement and how it applies to pain relief. Having suffered chronic back issues most of her adult life and the emotional toll it can take, she went on a mission to figure out movement patterns that decrease pain. She discovered the benefits of Stott’s Pilates and how it can assist a patient who is dealing with muscular/skeletal pain. Vikki went on to complete the teacher training program and now has another tool to help her patients remain pain free.
With health problems, it can often be a combination of mental, physical and spiritual imbalances within a person. That is why every treatment is individualized and no two people or diagnoses are the same.
In her free time she is an outdoor enthusiast. Whether it’s hiking (year-round) biking, canoeing, kayaking, long walks in the forest or adventure traveling she loves to experience life to the fullest.
