What She Treats

Emily takes a special interest in pain management, including osteoarthritis (OA), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), fibromyalgia, sports injuries, knee, neck, and back pain, and headaches.

Sleep and digestive disorders are two other focuses of hers including IBS, Crohn's and colitis, heartburn, acid reflux or GERD, and constipation.

Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is another passion of Emily's.  This ancient technique is believed to have first come about after treating paralyzed facial muscles caused by strokes.  After noticing significant cosmetic benefits it was developed into a holistic system for anti-aging beauty.

About the Clinic

The Balance Healing Centre is a home-based clinic.  For the entrepreneur in Emily, it was a natural step that was spurred on by the onset of the pandemic.  

Jenny is the resident therapy dog.  She is often the first point of healing when coming to the Balance Healing Centre.  Most love this little extra touch of healing, but for those who are uncomfortable with dogs, she is easily contained and kept out of sight.  Please add a note to your booking or let Emily know in advance via email, text, or phone call.


Special Training

Emily is trained in Dr. Tan's Balancing Method. This system, known for its immediate effect on relieving pain, works with the sophisticated relationships of the acupuncture meridians and generally offers relief within minutes after needle insertion.  For instance, it can be used alone or in combination with local points often used in dry needling. 


Emily is also trained in facial rejuvenation acupuncture also known as cosmetic acupuncture.  She continues to learn more about this holistic approach to beauty and incorporates gentle cupping into the treatment.

Emily has studied under Kiiko Matsumoto.  The Kiiko Matsumoto Style of acupuncture (KMS) was developed by Master Na.  He was a blind Japanese acupuncturist and hence palpation is the main diagnostic tool.
