After receiving her B.Sc from the University of Alberta, Raeghan studied Chinese Medicine at the Canadian College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Victoria, BC. Compelled by Chinese medicine’s 2000-year-old history of treating woman’s reproductive disorders, Raeghan pursued postgraduate studies in obstetrics, gynecology, sports medicine and facial rejuvenation with many world renowned specialists.

Raeghan has also treated a variety of acute and chronic musculoskeletal and neurological conditions. She uses traditional acupuncture and in some cases western-influenced acupuncture, specifically motor-point needling, to affect pain and create a better standard of living for her patients. She has studied under Matt Callison, the developer of Sports Medicine Acupuncture.

Raeghan also has a keen interest in the rejuvenating effects associated with acupuncture. She has studied under Virginia Doran, a leading expert in Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture. Because of Raeghan’s dedication to obstetrical care, she has developed and is currently teaching the “Acupuncture for Pain Management in Labour” program for midwives. Raeghan is the co-founder and board member of the Canadian Association of Obstetrical Oriental Medicine (CAOOM)

I would highly recommend Raeghan as she is simply…. AMAZING!!! Not only is she compassionate in regards to your feelings, and what your experiencing but she takes the time to really connect to you, which is very rare these days and was very much appreciated. I would highly recommend Raeghan. She happens to have a reputation as being the “baby maker” so its worth seeing her for many reasons.

I began seeing Raeghan for acupuncture treatments after a frustrating struggle with unexplained infertility. From our first meeting, Raeghan was instantly invested in my journey to conceive. Her warmth, positivity and wealth of knowledge gave me the immediate confidence that I was on the right path. Raeghan's incredible support guided me through the difficult process of letting go and instead listening to my body and it's needs, focusing on wellness, balance and relaxation. As a result, we recently welcomed a beautiful baby girl in to this world!

My friend recommended that I see Raeghan to help us conceive. I had been trying for 2 years, with no success. All the blood work was normal and my cycles were regular, but the fertility clinic diagnosed me with “unexplained infertility”. I was so frustrated and the thought of attending another baby shower was breaking my heart. Raeghan was so easy to talk to, that I immediately felt like I was in the right place. She recommended some dietary changes, added some supplements to my regime, and taught me how to relax. After each acupuncture treatment, I felt healthier and stronger. I couldn’t believe it, within 2 months of starting the acupuncture treatments I became pregnant. Raeghan was the magic that we needed. Thank you so much!
