Hello! My name is Chen-yu. I came to the Valley from Taiwan with my wife in 2015. As a registered Chinese medicine practitioner I am passionate about helping people relieve pains, regain balance of movement and achieve physical alignment. Other than acupuncture, which is more familiar to people in the west coast, I also use traditional methods such as cupping and scraping to help patients alleviate tensions, aches and imbalances. I also use a certain set of manual adjustment techniques to release tension between skin, tissues, muscle and bones.
I use various diagnostic methods to understand an individual’s unique constitution, and will be able to formulate the most suitable treatment plan to address the patient’s specific needs and guide them towards healing and wellness.
Originally I was a carpenter, specializing in custom furniture making. After coming to Canada, I continued in woodworking, but was beginning to feel the wear and tear it had on my body. I tried acupuncture for the first time and experienced its therapeutic effects. This experience led me to embark on a journey of exploration about healing. I subsequently pursued and completed the Traditional Chinese Medicine Program at Oshio College in Victoria, and became a licensed practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2023.
It is my pleasure and honor to serve the people in Comox Valley. Please come try a session with me!
