Who I Am and What I Do

Vonalee Gilroy - Registered Acupuncturist

Hey there! I'm Vonalee, a registered acupuncturist with a deep-rooted passion for holistic wellness, especially in the world of skincare, hormone balance, and digestion. Since graduating from the Calgary College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture (CCTCMA) in 2010, I've been on a continuous journey of growth and discovery, constantly expanding my craft.

I offer acupuncture and skincare treatments to all ages and genders. What sets my approach apart is combining the knowledge of acupuncture with holistic skincare. For me, it’s not just about treating symptoms; it’s developing a connection with my patients and empowering them with knowledge. I strive to create an environment where people feel seen and heard. 

In my treatment room, I use botanical and Korean skincare products that have been carefully selected. Using organic products and following safety guidelines is of utmost importance, and having served as a licensing examiner at the College and Association of Acupuncturists of Alberta (CAAA), I am well versed in best practices in technique and equipment.

Join me on a journey to achieve your optimal health, balance and vibrant skin. 

What is Acupuncture

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) represent ancient practices originating in China more than 4000 years ago. They offer a drug-free approach to healing by addressing both current ailments and preventing future imbalances in the body.

According to TCM theory, the body's vital energy, known as "qi," flows along specific pathways called meridians. When these meridians become blocked or disrupted, it can lead to disease or discomfort. Acupuncture aims to restore balance and health by inserting fine needles into specific points along these meridians, thereby clearing blockages and promoting the smooth flow of qi.

The effectiveness of acupuncture has been recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO), which has identified over 50 conditions that acupuncture can treat. These include common issues such as asthma, migraines, tennis elbow, irritable bowel syndrome, and low back pain, among others.

By addressing the root causes of health issues and restoring balance to the body's energy flow, acupuncture and TCM offer a holistic approach to healing that complements conventional medical treatments. Many people find relief and improvement in their overall well-being through these ancient practices.
