Alexandria first sought out acupuncture during her undergraduate years at the University of Victoria when she began experiencing health issues of her own. Searching for a health model that took the whole body into account, she quickly found the answers she was looking for in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and enrolled in classes the very next semester.
Having grown up on Vancouver Island, Alexandria is inspired by the beauty and wisdom of the natural world. She believes that medicine should support the body’s natural rhythms, and utilizes the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine to address the root cause of illness, as well as the symptoms.
Alexandria graduated Summa Cum Laude from Pacific Rim College’s Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine program in 2012. She is a Registered Acupuncturist (R. Ac) and Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine (Dr. TCM) in BC, and is a member in good standing with the BC’s regulatory body, the CTCMA. Alexandria is certified in Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture and is a member of the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA). She has a special interest in women’s health and fertility, and has completed training as a doula prior to having attended several births. She is also a Fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM).
Community outreach is an integral aspect of Alexandria's practice, and she has spent several years offering free acupuncture at Our Place Society, and the Salvation Army’s Skills for Recovery program. She continues to offer sliding scale treatments to those in need.
Alexandria completed the Yoga Teacher Training at the Fernwood Yoga Den in 2014, and in her free time can be found practicing headstands, perusing farmer’s markets with her husband and young son, and perfecting her banana bread.
