Philippa Acupuncture CalgaryPhilippa graduated as a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine in July 2010 from the Canadian Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine and is now practicing at BodyMind Synergy Health Centre alongside her highly respected teachers and mentors. She arrived here via a circuitous route, first earning her Aerospace Engineering Degree from University of Toronto in 1992, and then working in the telecommunications industry for several years before coming to the realization that her heart lay in a different direction. Her interest and passion for the disciplines of the East began with her training in kung fu around this time. This eventually evolved into a desire to learn and practice the healing art of the Chinese culture as well: their system of medicine.

Philippa blends her analytical and problem solving skills together with the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine to sincerely help others achieve a healthier, happier and more joyful life. She has found both acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine very effective in treating a wide scope of conditions and concerns. Various types of musculoskeletal pain and injury, gynaecological issues and infertility, digestive problems, and stress induced states such as insomnia, depression and anxiety have all responded successfully to treatment. She is very grateful to of all her teachers and patients (also her teachers) who have been part of her journey in learning and practicing this extraordinary and time-honoured system of medicine. Philippa invites all past and new patients to her practice who would like to work with her to achieve their goals of health and well being.
