After personally experiencing the positive effects of Chinese herbs and hearing numerous accounts of successful cases from her patients, she decided to further her education with training in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Cindy attended the International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Vancouver all the while continuing her work as a Kinesiologist. In addition, Cindy also completed her studies in Advanced Facial Constitutional Acupuncture Renewal™.
After reconnecting with her root and culture, it was easy for Cindy to embrace the essence of Chinese medicine. She believes in the importance of the inter-connection of mind, body, and spirit to reach a state of true harmony and well-being. She stresses the importance of understanding the unlimited possibilities of the body and mind but also understanding the limitation by paying close attention to the subtle cues from the body. Each treatment is focus on the manifestation of the disease but also the underlying cause. In her practice, Cindy emphasis the combination of acupuncture, diet consultation, and exercise therapy to help her patients to achieve their ultimate health and welness goals.
