I am a Registered Acupuncturist and Registered Massage Therapist. I have been in practice for 10 years and I am continuing my education to improve the outcome of my treatments. In your treatment I may use a variety of techniques and often incorporate all of them for better results. Deep Tissue Massage, Trigger Point Work, Myofascial Release, Chinese Cupping and Acupuncture are my main modalities.
Sciatic Pain, Back, Neck and Shoulder Pain, Headaches, Carpal Tunnel, Whiplash, TMJ Pain, Tennis elbow and Plantar Fascitis are some of the conditions I treat.
My treatments are covered by most private health care plans. Nurses, Teachers, RCMP and union members, health care workers and their family members are some of the groups who have coverage. I offer direct billing for Blue Cross and provide receipts for all other insurance claims. Check with your insurance plans for coverage for Massage Therapy and Acupuncture. Some plans require a doctor’s referral.
I am registered with the Maritime Association of Acupuncturists and the Massage Therapists’ Association of Nova Scotia. My clinic is located in Cheticamp and I also offer house visits in Inverness County.
