Wanda’s interest in health and sciences began at a very young age as she was introduced to different modalities of Chinese medicine whenever illness came on in her family. With a particular interest in biology and physiology, Wanda completed her bachelor’s degree in biological sciences through the University of Calgary and continued on to complete a diploma in natural nutrition before embarking into the field of traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture at the Alberta College of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
As a competitive dragon boat paddler, Wanda has developed a special interest in sports medicine acupuncture focusing on the importance of prevention, recovery, and injury rehabilitation. Although trained to address many conditions, she has experienced great success in addressing muscle and joint pain through the use of sports medicine acupuncture. Incorporating principles and techniques from traditional Chinese medicine in addition to Western sports medicine, Wanda is able to assess and treat sports injuries, work-related injuries, and overall muscle-skeletal imbalances. She also enjoys working with individuals pre/post-natal, including induction and reproductive issues, she can help manage anxiety, stress and associated stress symptoms, and many other areas including immune support, sleep issues, and digestion.
Wanda values her patients, their health, and their health journey and brings into her practice different modalities to provide the best care she can. This might include Chinese medicine acupuncture, sports medicine acupuncture, cupping, gua-sha, moxibustion, auricular therapy, diet therapy, and Chinese herbal formulas to promote and encourage healing and overall health. Wanda’s goal is to see her clients enjoy all aspects of their everyday life through a holistic approach to healing and health.
Wanda enjoys travelling near and far, the sun and sand, and spending time with family, friends, and her chihuahuas.
