Andrea Wilson, R. TCM.P, B.A.Sc.
Andrea completed her undergraduate degree in 1999, when she graduated from Queen’s University with a B.A.Sc. in geological engineering. After a few years of engineering work, she felt incomplete and moved west to Golden, BC where she decided to study massage. During her massage practise, she became increasingly curious about the inner workings of the mind, body and spirit. After close to a decade of practising massage, she still felt as though something was missing from her work. Motivated by an innate curiosity as well as her own personal health issues, she felt compelled to learn more about how to live in a more balanced state. She completed the 5-year Doctor of TCM program at the Academy of Classical Oriental Sciences in Nelson, BC. Fueled by her love of learning and a strong desire to help others, Andrea practises with genuine curiosity and a true passion for her work.
Andrea believes deeply in the body’s innate ability to heal itself. She considers the practise of Chinese Medicine to be a beautiful marriage of science with the healing arts, and a way of finding balance physically, emotionally and spiritually. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is an ancient, distinct and comprehensive medical system deeply rooted in Chinese philosophy. It is composed of fundamental theory, unique diagnostic methods, and a variety of treatment modalities including acupuncture & moxibustion, Chinese herbal medicine, tui na massage, fire cupping, Qi Gong, and dietary therapy
