Natalie Fleury R.TCM.P., R.Ac
From the time I was a child, my grandmother, who grew up in Okinawa, Japan, was a strong proponent of natural medicine, particularly Traditional Chinese Medicine. Growing up with her giving me herbal medicines and moxibustion when I was sick, piqued my interest in pursuing TCM as a profession. My belief in the body's natural ability to heal, and the treatment of physical and mental health together brought me to Nelson, BC. During my schooling, I felt I wanted a deeper understanding of the medicine, and its integration with biomedicine. In the winter of 2017, I travelled to China and completed practicums in Kunming, Yunnan Province and Chengdu, Sichuan Province in hospitals that are fully integrated western medicine and TCM, and gained valuable experience from the vast number of patients we treated. Along with my passion and experience with sport and adventure, I am excited about utilizing my knowledge and skill for the benefit of my patients.
Natalie obtained a doctorate in Traditional Chinese Medicine as valedictorian from Kootenay Columbia College of Integrative Health Sciences in Nelson, BC.
