Dr. Janice’s Special Training

Prior to receiving an education in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Janice worked in various capacities in conventional health care. She was initially trained as a Kinesiologist and worked extensively in spinal rehabilitation. She later received her masters degree in Health Sciences (MHSc) and worked for Alberta Health Services as an educator in schools, hospitals and local communities.

During this time, Dr. Janice met health practitioners of different backgrounds and philosophies and it was through these connections that she discovered her passion for Traditional Chinese Medicine. She found that this type of medicine treated the body as a whole and offered effective treatment methods for patients, which were specific to the individual. Through the use of acupuncture, cupping, herbal medicine, nutrition, and lifestyle modification she is able to help patients achieve optimal health.

Outside the Office

When not practicing chinese medicine, Dr. Janice is involved in competitive cross country and track running, as well as mountain biking, hiking and skiing with her husband and 3 children.
