Our Team

Rheanna Robertson (B.Sc.Psych, Dr.Ac.) 

Registered Acupuncturist

Rheanna has always been fascinated by the human body, especially the brain and psyche. She graduated from the University of Alberta with a B.Sc. Specialization in Psychology and interned as a psychometrist and research assistant. This experience motivated Rheanna to pursue further education in order to treat the mind and body from a more wholistic, energetic approach. Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture was the perfect fit, and Rheanna is now a graduate of the Grant MacEwan Acupuncture program.

Rheanna’s goal for every treatment is to nurture an open and honest relationship, meet you where you are at, set realistic health goals, and provide motivation, guidance, and education for you to find balance in your body and mind.

CranioSacral Therapist

Osteopathic Manual Therapist

Karen has completed her diploma in Osteopathic Manual Therapy (D.O.M.P)  and is also a registered acupuncturist. With nine years of post-secondary education and over 20 years of clinical experience, Karen’s intention is to work with the body to maximize results while minimizing stress on the body systems.

Karen’s passion for learning has taken her to Beijing China to observe Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in a hospital setting.

Tammie Lubemsky (B.Sc.Kin, Dr.Ac.) 

Registered Acupuncturist

NAET Practitioner

The completion of her BSc in Kinesiology sparked Tammie’s interest in the notion that one's physical health is significantly influenced by one's emotional and psychological well-being. She was drawn to Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine as a complementary and powerfully effective counterpart to Kinesiology in a physiological recovery and healing plan. 

Tammie is a graduate of MacEwan University’s Acupuncture program. She completed a one month internship in a Traditional Chinese Medicine hospital in Beijing, China where she gained a greater understanding and knowledge of the power of traditional Chinese modalities in combination with western treatments in optimizing patient healing.
