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. Her focus of training has led her to membership with the Obstetrical Acupuncture Association helping women with a variety of conditions throughout their pregnancy and fertility, women’s health, electro-acupuncture for the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders, chronic pain and post-surgical recovery.
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. Working in an integrative clinic supports her whole system treatment style and enables patients the opportunity to receive the best multidisciplinary care that addresses their individual needs.
