Savanna completed her training as a Registered Acupuncturist in 2016 in Victoria, BC at the Oshio College of Acupuncture and Herbology. She was fortunate to have the opportunity to train under Dr. Ganglin Yin, a western medically trained Doctor as well as a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Savanna changed careers after 15 years working for government and the private sector as a biologist. She opened her own clinic – Soul Point Acupuncture – in 2017 and then established Trillium Integrative Health with her partners, Lisa Hendry, RMT and Hannah Barnes, PT in 2018.
Since becoming a Registered Acupuncturist with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncturists of BC, Savanna has been dedicated to continued learning to ensure she provides the best care for her patients. She focuses her style of acupuncture on two masters of Chinese Medicine, Master Tung and Dr. Richard Tan, and has studied with one of Richard Tan’s students. Some of the courses she has completed in recent years include:
Dr. Tan’s Balance Method for Trauma and Sport Injuries
Treating Fertility with Master Tung Points
Master Tung Points with Brad Whisnant
Integrative Fertility Symposium (upcoming)
Savanna believes that treating the body as a whole system is the key to healing. Each patient treatment plan is specific to their concerns and well being. Her treatments can include acupuncture, cupping, nutritional therapy and electro-acupuncture. Savanna is passionate about women’s health, emotional health and chronic pain. Working in an integrative clinic supports her whole system treatment style and enables patients the opportunity to receive the best wrap around care that addresses their individual needs.
