Meet your Acupuncturist - Erin Horne BHSc (Acupuncture)
My name is Erin Horne and I am a Registered Acupuncturist with a Bachelor of Health Science (Acupuncture) from Endeavour College of Natural Health. I first discovered the brilliance of acupuncture and Chinese medicine after seeking help for chronic back pain due to a minor spinal injury. Acupuncture and cupping helped ease the symptoms and I immediately knew that I needed to learn more about this ancient healing technique.
Coming from a background in yoga, I knew that acupuncture and Chinese medicine would be the perfect accompaniments to add to my wellness offerings.
I am very gentle in my approach, and I have a special interest in stress management, helping to calm the nervous system, and inducing relaxation to assist the body’s healing capabilities. I have a background in teaching yoga and meditation and I bring elements of these practices into my treatments.
I look forward to meeting you and assisting you on your wellness journey.
