Laurina Norris, BGS
Registered Acupuncturist and Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner
I have been practicing Oriental medicine since 2014, after completing four years of training at Pacific Rim College in Victoria. By subsequently passing two sets of provincial licensing exams I am qualified to hold the title of Registered Acupuncturist and Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner (R.TCM.P).
I have also completed a Bachelor of General Studies through Athabasca University where I focused my studies on human health and graduated with distinction. Each year I complete numerous continuing education courses in order to provide my clients with the best in care.
I practice acupuncture and Oriental medicine because it allows me to assist others with their health goals in an efficient and meaningful way. Often, it is through stress reduction or pain management that people can find a way forward in their lives, and acupuncture can be an invaluable resource to this end. Certainly, that was my own case when I found help from acupuncture when I had a very stubborn and painful repetitive strain injury many years ago. So much so, that I did a mid-life career change and went back to school to study Oriental medicine in my forties.
In the past two years I have also had the privilege to train in the discipline of Frequency Specific Microcurrent under several brilliant instructors. Like Oriental medicine, it is an ocean of information and provides potential solutions for a myriad of problems.
Most commonly, I am asked by clients to help with physical medicine issues; that is to say, acute and chronic injuries. The techniques that I practice have also helped people with conditions ranging from gout to insomnia. If you don’t see the topic that applies to you under the ‘Conditions’ tab, don’t hesitate to get in touch and we can discuss it.
