About us

 In the past 30 years there has been a growing disillusionment in North America with Western Medicine’s treatment of chronic disease, stress and pain. The prescription of pharmaceuticals or surgery to treat symptoms has been largely unsuccessful and even possibly harmful with associated side effects.Like most of you these trends have been very clear to me. I started my professional journey with an honours science degree in sports medicine followed by a master’s degree in clinical psychology. Science was king in my mind because it was the doctrine I was taught. If a double blind study didn't say it was so then it wasn't so! From that moment I began a journey studying massage, acupressure, acupuncture and eastern medicine. I am now a clinical psychotherapist, acupressurist, and acupuncturist who has been practicing and teaching pain and stress management for over 20 years. I’m  also director and president of the National Wellness Institute of Eductaion, an organization providing courses to doctors, therapists and other healthcare workers teaching them eastern medicine and acupressure. I also do  extensive speaking and lecturing providing healthcare education to organizations across North America which have included; CGI, Symantec, Canadian Military, and the Canadian Addiction Intervention Association.Through my journey I realized that there is a desperate need for effective, non-invasive methods of reducing pain and stress that people can easily use at home before they have to resort to a visit to a therapist or doctor. Thus, the Wellness International Corporation was born.

Through my schooling I also suffered from severe lower back pain from an old sports injury. At 30 years of age, with the appearance of a well-conditioned athlete, I could barely walk because of my pain. For months I took anti-inflammatory medication (that has since been taken off the market because of potentially deadly side effects) with little or no benefit. I also went for months of chiropractic and physiotherapy treatments that also helped only marginally. As a last resort, desperate for some kind of relief I went to see and Eastern Medicine practitioner who applied acupressure and acupuncture. After only a few sessions the relief was dramatic where I could function normally for the first time in years.
