Angela Leavey Registered Acupuncturist
Angela's journey to Acupuncture led her along many paths. Resigning from a corporate position in 2001 to began training in massage and botanical medicine. Angela studied Organic Chemistry with an interest in the medical use of essential oils, at the Institute of Aromatherapy. After completing the program as a Certified Health Practitioner, Angela immersed herself in further education focusing on mental health and woman’s care.
In 2005, Angela was invited to participate in a project that changed the trajectory of her career. After a devastating tsunami struck Indonesia, she worked with a team of 20 volunteers in Sri Lanka to help support and re-build an area that had been damaged. The memories of witnessing humans who had virtually lost families, livelihoods and the very few material possessions in their lives, made her look at life from a different lens. What was most evident was the lack of counselling or community programs that offered emotional support for PTSD, anxiety and depression.
In 2010 Angela began training at the Canadian College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Victoria. Angela has extended and enhanced her education with workshops on addiction and mental health and am a certified NADA practitioner.
Angela's focus is to provide Acupuncture that addresses health requirements for every individual body, with support through education and treatment, and encouragement to embrace your individual health challenges. Together we can create a lifestyle and treatment plan that integrates gentle modifications and facilitates healing.
Angela looks forward to helping you embrace your health. https://www.angelaleavey.com/
