Erryn has been practicing Traditional Chinese Medicine for 5 years. She is a registered acupuncturist and a current member with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of British Columbia.
Erryn is dedicated to continually furthering her education and honing her expertise. Most recently, she has studied Clinical Application of IV Nutrient Therapy, Pulmonary Diseases, Advanced Anatomy, and Food Sensitivity and Allergy testing.
Historically, Traditional Chinese Medicine was used as a preventative measure, rather than a curative response. Acupuncture has numerous benefits at any point in our lives, not solely in the presence of injury or disease.
Erryn believes in the Holistic Whole Body Approach to keeping you healthy. This is called the Root & Branch Theory. Instead of chasing the symptoms of an illness - The Branch - she looks at the body as a whole, analyzing it to determine The Root cause of your condition. This allows her to customize a treatment plan while you are at the clinic that also follows through at home so you can achieve a healthier, more vibrant life.
Erryn offers acupuncture, acupressure, cupping, auricular (ear acupuncture), gua sha, and laser acupuncture.
Some of the conditions she treats include sleep disorders, stress, anxiety, depression, gastrointestinal issues, gynaecological problems, and pain.
Andrea received her designation of Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN) from Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, a national, provincially-regulated school of holistic nutrition. Her passion for improving health through nutrition and lifestyle change stems from her own personal experience with food intolerances and the systemic symptoms she has had since childhood. Andrea’s holistic practice includes not only nutritional guidance, but also lifestyle factors such as stress management, quality of sleep and physical activity. Holistic nutrition is not a one size fits all methodology. Each program is individually tailored to each client considering not just one aspect of that person’s life but a multitude of aspects including past health history, emotional and physical health, current eating and lifestyle habits and family situations. So many health conditions and concerns can benefit from nutritional and lifestyle changes including but not limited to allergies, skin conditions, hormone imbalances, depression and anxiety, PMS and menopause symptoms, autoimmune conditions, blood sugar and gastrointestinal problems. When Andrea is not working with clients, she loves spending time with her family, traveling, continuing her education through reading and coursework, and being on the water either paddling with her competitive dragon boat team or kayaking with her partner. Andrea looks forward to guiding her clients to make positive choices on the path to better health.
