Dr. Adrienne Chan
Dr. TCM, Acupuncturist, Herbalist
Adrienne Chan is a Registered Doctor of TCM and a Registered Acupuncturist with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture of British Columbia (CTCMA of BC). She began her training at the University of Guelph where she received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Nutraceutical Sciences. She then pursued post-graduate studies at Vancouver’s International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and completed the five year Doctorate Program.
While in school, Adrienne completed additional training under notable experts including Mary Elizabeth Wakefield and Les Moncrieff to refine her expertise in Facial Rejuvenation and Auricular Detoxification Therapy. Her extra training and clinical practicum has designated her as a NADA-certified Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist. Adrienne is also certified by the Society of Acupoint Injection Therapy for Biopuncture and Vitamin Injection Therapy. This allows her to perform customized nutritional, vitamin and herbal injections to boost the health of her clients.
Adrienne’s particular interest in alternative therapy grew naturally out of her own healing journey. During her adolescence she had her first encounter with a Chinese Medicine Doctor who corrected her health problems while providing her with first hand exposure to the benefits of Herbal Medicine. Since then she had been fascinated with the Ancient Healing Arts, and has immersed herself in numerous health related work and volunteer opportunities. Today she enjoys helping with and has had clinical success in a variety of conditions including pain management, fatigue, insomnia, acne, fertility and pregnancy, stress and anxiety, depression, bloating and indigestion, hayfever and weight loss.
Adrienne believes that Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine represent a growing component of the overall healthcare system and is dedicated to offering the highest standards of integrated care, safety, comfort and compassion.
