Involves inserting thin needles into specific points in the body to manipulate the flow of Energy or Qi

Acupuncture involves inserting thin needles into specific points in the body located along meridian channels to manipulate the flow of Energy or Qi.  Most points are completely pain-free. The points that do incorporate sensation, are called DeQi (pronounced deh chee), which refers to a general feeling of ‘sensation’ around the needle. This traditional ancient Chinese healing technique is practiced all over the world and recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) as having effective results for numerous illnesses.


As acupuncture gained momentum as a Regulated Health Profession in Ontario, I was excited to add it to my multi-modality healing practice. It incorporated my love for igniting self-healing, energetic connection, profound pain reduction, re-balancing the body and re-setting the parasympathetic nervous system. Initially, a person who was squeamish around needles, I simultaneously came to learn and love acupuncture. It was a natural addition to my practice and has helped many of my clients with a multitude of issues including pain, chronic illness, infertility and anxiety.

Bowen Therapy

Effective for physical pain, chronic health conditions and emotional angst

Effective for physical pain, chronic health conditions and emotional angst, Bowen Therapy is often a last result for those who haven’t found relief in traditional treatments and therapies.

This hands-on gentle physical therapy has a subtle underlying energetic component that facilitates shifts in the body as well as  feelings and perceptions. Its series of sequential ‘moves’ over profound points and meridians in the body, allows the parasympathetic nervous system to relax and re-set. Treatments lead to pain reduction, often accompanied by feelings of lightness, clarity and positive mindset.


As my first foray into bodywork and healing, I became a certified Bowen Therapist in 2009 after I was treated with Bowen Therapy for a disc-blowing back injury. My experience with physiotherapy and drugs treatment were both painful and ineffective. When I discovered Bowen, everything changed. I became pain-free, regained full mobility with a spring in my step and a reignited motivation to continue on the path to renewed healthy living. It was then that I became determined to bring this therapy to more people in the world.

If you’re looking for a gentle, non-invasive treatment that promotes pain-reduction and both physical and mental healing and balance, Book online today at to schedule a Bowen Therapy session.

What is Bowen Therapy?
The Bowen Technique is a gentle, deeply relaxing, non-invasive physical therapy that frees the body to attain its natural balance and healing. Effective as a structural treatment for specific pain, Bowen therapy addresses the body as a whole. Its embrace often extends beyond the presenting symptom to the healing of underlying physical, chemical, emotional and mental causes of chronic illnesses.

How does it work?
Bowen moves are light, gentle and very precise. There is no forceful manipulation. The practitioners are able to discern stress build-up in muscles and other soft tissue enabling them to perform specific Bowen moves to assist recovery and aid pain relief.

There are frequent but essential pauses throughout the session that allow the body time to respond and begin the healing process. The practitioner can target a specific problem or address the body as a whole.

A Bowen session initiates a cascade of beneficial changes that continue for several days. Applying other manipulative therapies during this time can interrupt this process and undermine the overall effectiveness of the Bowen work. It is therefore recommended that the client waits a week before commencing any other manual therapy.

What Conditions Respond to the Bowen Technique?
The Bowen Technique is safe to use on anyone, from the newborn to the elderly, as there are no vigorous manipulations employed in the treatment. The soothing and restorative effects of Bowen Therapy have been found to reduce physical, emotional and mental stress; improve joint mobility, increase circulation of lymphatic and venous fluids and the assimilation of nutrients; and eliminate toxins. Bowen practitioners have found it achieves profound, substantial, rapid and lasting relief from a wide spectrum of conditions: Musculo-skeletal pain, Respiratory problems, Arthritic Pain, Allergies, Back Pain(Chronic and Acute), Asthma, Bunions, Bronchitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Hay Fever, Fibromyalgia, Sinusitis, Foot and Ankle Problems, Frozen Shoulder and Pain, Digestive Disorders, Gait Disorders, Bowel Problems, Hammer Toes, Colic, Hamstrings, Constipation, Headaches, Crohn’s Disease, Heel Pain, Indigestion, Hernia, Inflexibility, Gynecological problems, Knee and Hip Restrictions, Breast Lumps, Leg Length Discrepancies, Infertility , Migraine, Mastitis, Plantar Fascitis, Premenstrual Syndrome, Pelvic Problems, Polymyalgia, Postural Problems, Balance Problems, RSI/ OSS, Bed Wetting in Children, Sciatica, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Scoliosis, Earache and Ear Infections, Shin Splints, Hemorrhoids, Sporting Injuries, Tinnitus, Tennis Elbow and TMJ Syndrome.
In place of the illness and discomfort experienced with the conditions listed above, Bowen introduces a state of ease and wellbeing.

Instead of applying pressure to muscles, the suction of cupping uses pressure to pull skin, tissue and muscles upward

Cupping feels like an amazing massage, in reverse! Instead of applying pressure to muscles, the suction of cupping uses pressure to pull skin, tissue and muscles upward.

Developed thousands of years ago, in traditional Chinese medicine, it involves placing glass, bamboo or plastic jars on skin, creating a vacuum by suctioning out the air. The tissue underneath gets gently sucked into the cup, gently lifting away knots or tension and warming the area, leaving skin glowing and smooth.

Cupping is effective in treating stress, pain, allergies, fatigue, flu, colds, back pain, anxiety, muscle aches, red itchy skin conditions and fever.

This can be used as a stand alone treatment or along with Acupuncture

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture

The use of Acupuncture to slow the visible effects of aging began in China in the Song Dynasty

Described by THE TIMES as a “viable alternative to cosmetic surgery”, the “acupuncture facelift” is the most recent non-invasive procedure designed to treat fine lines and wrinkles, as well as improving the overall appearance of the skin.

Based on the principles of Chinese Medicine, it helps the whole body to look and feel younger by addressing the physical, mental and emotional patterns that cause disease and contribute to the aging process.

The use of Acupuncture to slow the visible effects of aging began in China in the Song Dynasty (960-1279 AD). In traditional Chinese medicine, it is known as ‘Chinese Medical Cosmetology’.

Studies published in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture showed that of 300 test cases who received facial rejuvenation, 90% showed results after one course of treatments.


Nicole was trained in Calgary under Mary Elizabeth Wakefield in the trademarked Constitutional Facial Acupuncture course. Constitutional Facial Acupuncture is a safe, painless and effective treatment for renewing the face as well as the whole body. Fine lines may be entirely erased, deeper lines reduced and bags around neck and eyes firmed.

Fine needles are placed at a variety of acupuncture points on the face, neck and around the eyes to stimulate the body’s natural energies, or Qi.

Since muscle groups are addressed as well the acupuncture points, the face lifts itself, via the acupuncture points, through the muscles’ toning and tightening action. The needles also stimulate blood and circulation, which improves facial colour.

Nicole treats the body as a whole…

“I will always deal with the person as a whole when giving this Facial treatment. It is about bringing the body into balance. If a person’s digestion or immune system for instance is ailing, then that will show up on the face and within the complexion.
When the body comes back into balance that will also reveal itself on the face… leaving a brightness, firmness and healthful glow.”


Why does Nicole’s Facial Rejuvenation treatment bring such great results?

Nicole combines the special Facial Acupuncture training with the extraordinary Facial Cupping Therapy.
This is what brings in such noticeable results faster that also last longer.
Combining the top two Natural Facial modalities is what sets her treatments apart.
