Acupuncture involves using very thin needles to alleviate pain and treat various physical, mental, and emotional conditions. Originating in ancient China, acupuncture is now widely practiced in the West.
Dr. Katie Zuk
I graduated from the Acupuncture program at MacEwan University and am currently in my first year of clinical practice. I have always had a fascination/curiosity with the functions and abilities of the human body which led me to a career in the medical field. I have a deep passion for alternative and natural healing and the foundations of traditional Chinese medicine. Treating the root cause of pathologies and helping the body return to natural harmony while making people feel like themselves again is what makes me so grateful that I get to practice this form of medicine. There are many courses I am excited to take to further my knowledge and skill set. Outside of the treatment room, I can be found spending time with my family and friends, enjoying the outdoors, working on the farm, and spending time with my animals.
