REGISTERED ACUPUNCTURISTS

Sarah McEwan, R.Ac Vancouver Island Acupuncture

Sarah completed a 3 year intensive Acupuncture Diploma program at Pacific Rim College in Victoria B.C in 2010 and is BC CTCMA board certified. Sarah found acupuncture on her own healing journey and was impressed by how effective it was, all the while being extremely gentle and non-invasive. Having her first treatments for back pain she very quickly became aware that acupuncture was so effective because it treats the whole person by looking at the body, mind and spirit. This was the beginning of Sarah’s interest in the healing arts and her amazement of the human body and what it’s capable of. During treatments Sarah uses traditional techniques and theories while applying modern knowledge and understanding. Sarah enjoys interacting with people and uses humor and compassion during treatments.

Sarah’s goal is to facilitate the process by which our bodies reside in optimal health, as well as to provide her client’s with helpful tools that will allow them to continue to heal on their own. Sarah has had the pleasure of working with people of all ages and ailments on their healing journey and looks forward to working with many more!To learn more about Acupuncture and Sarah visit her website at www.vancouverislandacupuncture.com/
