Vitality Treatment Centre
As a graduate from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy’s Spa Practitioner Program, Sabrina has 9 years experience nurturing people with Swedish Massage, Lomi Lomi, Hot Stone and Aromatherapy.
Always curious about how things work and why, Sabrina earned a Diploma of Acupuncture from Pacific Rim College and a BSc. in Biology from the University of Victoria. She interviews each client, looking at current challenges, from a pattern based Traditional Chinese Medicine point of view and a biomedical cause-and-effect perspective.
Sabrina loves dance and movement therapies from Foxtrot and Pilates to Poi Spinning and Tai Chi lessons. When not dancing Sabrina is often reading, playing board games or trying out new massages. Clients are offered useful advice for reducing pain and stress but not pressured to adopt habits that don’t fit their lives. She welcomes any questions you have about introducing Traditional Chinese Medicine therapies into your life or to someone you love.
Acupuncture is only one aspect of Traditional Chinese Medicine. During a visit, other traditional therapies may include cupping, gently scraping the skin, herbal ointments, heat therapy, food choice modifications and sleep/exercise suggestions. Mild electrical stimulation of the acupuncture points (similar to TENS machines at a physiotherapy office) are sometimes used to reduce muscle tension and more strongly activate points without pain.
