BSc RAc N.D
My name is Breannah and I am the owner and practitioner behind ACUlove NB.
I am a major outdoor lover, with a bit of book habit! I love learning new things, and enjoy a fiction book, or a textbook in equal proportion. I am known to love a glass of white wine, and hanging out with my family and friends.
I have wanted to work in the health field from an early age, and even worked towards a career in neurology at Dalhousie University. Life led me down an exciting road that ultimately brought me to Acupuncture instead!
In my practice, I strive to blend my 6 years of human sciences education (Biology, Psychology, and Neuroscience), with my 3 years of Traditional Chinese medicine and Acupuncture training, to create a truly modern and inclusive approach to health. I enjoy taking advanced and unique specialized training, to continuously bring more to the ACUlove community.
I strongly believe the foundation of a good life, and a good community, is having good health. Healing is something that is accessible to us all, we just have to be willing to.
I offer a variety of services to help you along your journey to optimal health. My commitments to my patients are; to listen, to educate, and to give the most effective and comfortable treatments possible.
Acupuncture as a modern healing model
Acupuncture is deeply rooted in the traditional medicine of various cultures. Most Acupuncturist are originally trained in Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) acupuncture. Some then expand their knowledge to Japanese, and Korean styles of Acupuncture. Regardless of the style, acupuncture has stood the test of time, and been evolved to be studied and research alongside modern medical science.
Acupuncture works on a variety of biological mechanisms. It is associated with various systemic functions and the organs of the body. Much of the early theories of acupuncture discuss the vital energy of the body, referred to as Qi. We can now join these early theories with modern biology and physics theories. Qi can be affiliated with the energy of the cells referred to as ATP (adenosine triphosphate) , molecular bonds, electromagnetic fields, signal theories and more.
Many practitioners now use ancient theory to learn the basics of Acupuncture, but then use modern research and theories to guide effective treatment protocols.
