My Story

Meet Tanya Michelle, LAc RN CST HTP

Tanya is a nurse and mother of two grown children. She found nursing and integrative medicine as a means to care for herself and her family. While traditional nursing provides for a solid background in medicine. Tanya is passionate about all aspects of health and healing which led to the discovery and learning of integrative medical techniques. Including acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine, CranioSacral Therapy, Energy Healing and more! Tanya is particularly passionate about sharing self care and healing techniques so every client has the ability to care deeply for themselves. 

I was rather new to the world of Acupuncture when I was first seen by Tanya. Her ability to ask me questions and lead me through the process with ease and comfort was amazing. When she then incorporated the CranioSacral Therapy into the treatment it has made her the Acupuncturist that I now choose to see every time. I left with a feeling of being truly cared for on a mind, body and spirit level. Thank you Tanya for the amazing art you bring to Acupuncture!
