What is TCM?

TCM stands for Traditional Chinese Medicine.

It is one form of Asian Medicine. The term Asian Medicine encompasses the traditional health practices several countries, including China, Japan and Korea.

Common treatments in Asian Medicine/TCM include special diets, botanical supplements, acupressure and acupuncture.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of British Columbia.  I have several years of work experience in nursing covering such specialty areas as gastroenterology, plastic surgery, gerontology, ophthalmology, sexual health and family planning.

I am a member in good standing with the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors, and the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors, and I am licensed by the College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO).

As a naturopathic doctor, I work with many treatment modalities, some of which you will find described on this site, but have a special interest in clinical nutrition and orthomolecular medicine.
