Jennifer had worked in health care for the past 25 years as both a long-term care personal support worker and an activities programmer. Both roles have taught her compassion and sensitivity in helping those with chronic and acute pain, as well as mental and cognitive health issues.
Seeing how medication has been used to treat different ailments, and the side affects caused by them, Jennifer began researching more natural ways to heal the body, leading her to her current profession as a Registered Acupuncturist, Certified Aromatherapist and Reiki Practitioner.
Jennifer graduated with honours from the International Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2012 and the West Coat Institute of Aromatherapy in 2013. She is a true believer of the healing power of acupuncture, and aromatherapy, and knows that clients will benefit from the holistic, personal, gentle and caring approach that the treatments provide.
Some of the common conditions that Jennifer excels at treating include pain management, women's and men's health, digestive issues and of course, pro-active health approaches.

I firmly believe that nutrition plays a key role in your everyday wellness and health. What we eat affects almost every aspect of our general health. As a nurse and RHN, I will discuss, evaluate, and assess your nutritional status in consideration of any other health issues that you are currently managing. A properly managed diet can often help alleviate many health issues that ail us in our daily lives, such as high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes and weight management problems. I believe there is not a “fits all” approach, any plan is tailored to accommodate you.
Good nutrition is not just about the food that you eat but how it fits into your lifestyle, so that you can enjoy it, without guilt or feeling that you are on a diet. Its about enjoying the foods you can eat and understanding how this affects your, health, weight and well-being in the long term.
Insurance coverage is constantly changing – more and more companies are starting to cover holistic nutritionists. Speak with your insurance provider for further details.

Polyvagal Theory looks at the nervous system to help explain and understand emotions, feelings, and responses to what is going on in your life.
Person-Centered Therapy is a type of talk therapy where the therapist follows the client’s lead to understand what they are going through and what they want to work on in therapy. Key factors in a person-centered approach include approaching the client with non-judgment, empathy, and seeing the client as the expert on their own life.

Reiki is an awareness of the unseen energy that flows through all living things and directly affect the quality of a person's health and has been part of the wisdom of many cultures since ancient times. Reiki, sometimes referred to as the “laying on of hands” is a Japanese technique for stress reduction, relaxation and self-healing. Universal life force energy, (the “ki” in Reiki which is also known as “chi” or “prana”), passes through the hands of the practitioner to the person laying comfortably and fully clothed on a massage table.
When your life energy is low, it is more difficult to deal with stress, you may not sleep as well, making you more susceptible to illness. A strong life energy allows us to deal with stress more easily and we are less likely to become ill. Reiki is a technique that increases a person's supply of life energy.
During a session Angel will place her hands on or above the head, shoulders, arms, abdomen, legs and feet, depending on the need of the client. This is a non-invasive technique where no pressure is applied to the body and tissue is not manipulated, making it safe for all ages and conditions. Many people report sensing a wonderful warmth and radiance that surrounds and fills them with feelings of relaxation, peace and well-being.
Reiki is simple, natural, safe and can be used by everyone. It is holistic in that it treats the whole person. And since Reiki stimulates and supports the body’s own healing processes, it works very well as a compliment or support to other medical or therapeutic techniques. (Reiki should never be used instead of medical treatment but rather as a compliment to it).
