The practice of Acupuncture has been around for over 2,000 years and is considered one of the most popular forms of traditional Chinese medicine. In North America, we use this restorative service to aid other therapies like massage, but it is incredibly effective in treating many conditions on its own.
Steven first studied Traditional Chinese Medicine at the Canadian College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Victoria, then moved to Pacific Rim College. He has various certifications in a wide array of massage techniques from Relaxation to Deep Tissue, as well as Thai and traditional Chinese Cupping and Tuina Massage.
His passion is healing people from many walks of life with varying illnesses and concerns. In addition to Massage and Acupuncture, Steven also integrates meditation, breathing and yogic techniques to help his patients. By connecting with his clients and sharing his knowledge, Steven builds relationships through healing.
