Who I Am and What I Do
Vonalee Gilroy - Registered Acupuncturist
I am a Licensed Acupuncturist in Guelph, Ontario who trained at the Calgary College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture (CCTCMA), and have been practicing for 13 years. I treat a wide range of syndromes and have a special interest in women's health, hormones, stress management and skin therapies.
My cosmetic training includes Michelle Gellar, Aaron Zizov and the TOMA System
I've also stood as an examiner at the College and Association of Acupuncturists of Alberta (CAAA) provincial licensing exams as well as having been a member of the Conduct and Competency Committee.
Many people feel rushed by their healthcare providers, and listening to my patient's needs is an important part of my treatment approach. I also support integration between Eastern and Western medicine for the best possible health outcome for my patients.
What is Acupuncture
Acupuncture and TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) is a form of medicine that originated in China over 4000 years ago. It is drug-free way to treat diseases and prevent future imbalances in the body. According to ancient theory, energy, known as “qi” runs along specific meridians in the body. When one of these meridians is blocked or diverted, disease can occur. To correct this, fine needles are inserted at specific points, and balance is restored.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has recognized over 50 conditions that acupuncture treats, including (but not limited to) asthma, migraine, tennis elbow, irritable bowel syndrome and low back pain.
