Alison Peia Stadnyk
R.TCM.P, R.Ac, Dpl.Doctorate of TCM,
Alison is a true believer that health and wellness is one of the most important values in life. The approach that traditional Chinese medicine takes to health, which involves using elements of nature to balance the body, mind and spirit - is what drew Alison into this practice. Alison is a Registered practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which includes acupuncture, cupping, gua-sha, Chinese herbal medicine, electro-acupuncture, and moxibustion.
During a session with Alison, we will go through a history of your own personal health, where we will discover patterns from a Chinese medicine based diagnosis which will direct our treatment together. From here, Alison will develop a treatment that is tailored to your own unique needs, utilizing acupuncture, acupressure, cupping, herbalism, or any other TCM techniques that are indicated for your healing journey.
Alison also incorporates dietary counseling, lifestyle coaching, and Chinese herbal therapy as a support protocol for her patients when desired or indicated.
You can expect to leave your session feeling relaxed, aligned and empowered with tools to motivate you towards your personal health goals.
