Silvia is a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine and a Registered Jin Shin Do® acupressurist. She graduated from PCU College of Holistic Medicine, Burnaby, BC in 2009 as an Acupuncturist & Herbalist. She continued her studies and became a Dr. TCM in 2011. Silvia is registered by the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of British Columbia (CTCMA).
Silvia’s interest in the healing sciences began at an early age as her father was a Chiropractor & Acupuncturist. Prior to becoming a Dr. TCM, Silvia obtained a Bachelor of Science & a Master of Clinical Science from the University of Western Ontario and worked as an Audiologist, in clinical & hospital settings, for over 15 years. Her goal is to help individuals evolve and heal physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Silvia’s sessions include acupuncture (needles) or, for those who prefer a non-invasive approach, she offers acupressure (finger pressure) or Acutonic tuning forks. Ear acupuncture, Mei Zen cosmetic acupuncture, cupping, and herbal formula may also be part of the treatment plan. Traditional Chinese Medicine is at the core of her therapies. Additional healing techniques that may be included are Matrix Energetics, Belief Changing techniques such as Psych-K, and Intentional Healing strategies.
Silvia’s aim is to assist the body-mind to heal in a relaxed and supportive setting and to educate the individual so that they can continue the healing process in their daily lives. Sessions are gentle in nature and presented in a calm and supportive environment. Individuals usually leave a session feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
Outside of the clinic, Silvia enjoys being with her family & friends, walking in the forest, climbing the Grouse Grind, yoga, biking, and ongoing learning of new approaches to health & healing.
