Sylvia Maksymik , Reg. Acupuncturist
I have always had a passion for helping people discover the innate ability for the body to heal and recover through a holistic and balanced philosophy of Western and Eastern medicine.
I provide perspective to meld the worlds of Eastern and Western medicine together.
This desire to help people is what started my journey in the field of paramedicine over ten years ago. During this time, I discovered an evolving passion to move from a Paramedic providing acute care, to a practitioner of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) by treating the complexity of injury and illness through acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.
I moved to Victoria, BC from Jasper, AB, to follow my dream of studying TCM. This education opened and expanded my mind to the beautiful world of Eastern Medicine and how it can complement many aspects of Western Medicine.
Outside of work, you’ll find me in nature experiencing my love for the outdoors on our local mountain biking trails.
If you’re new to discovering the amazing healing benefits of acupuncture, book an appointment with me to learn and explore how acupuncture can treat both acute and chronic pain, as well as provide a complementary approach to total mind and body wellness.
For those who have already
discovered treatment through acupuncture, I’m excited to provide the best care you’ve come to expect from one of the oldest healing practices in the world.
