Kevin has been practicing for over 18 years and has treated more than 10000 clients. He has worked for 9 years with mental health and addiction clients with for Vancouver Coastal Health Authority in community health care centers all across Vancouver. He is constantly developing new protocols for mental health problems and supervises three acupuncture programs in Vancouver at present.

Kevin is trained in Trigger Point Injection Therapy and Biopuncture as practiced by the American Academy of Pain Management and follows closely the methods of the late Dr. Janet Travell. He also uses many styles of painless acupuncture including German Auricular Medicine created by the fMRI findings of European neurologists, Japanese and Korean acupuncture as well as Medical and Chinese Mainland Style Acupuncture. Cupping, electroacupunture as well as various Energy Psychology such as EFT, TFT , mindfulness and Hypnosis are used when appropriate.
Kevin is a forward-thinking medical practitioner. His training and experience allow him to bridge traditional acupuncture with mainstream medicine. Kevin customizes and combines holistic therapies with non-drug pain treatments in order to stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities. This remarkably stimulates healing especially in areas where circulation is poor like joints and tendons or chronically tight muscles. The result is people can get back on their feet quickly returning to normal pain free motion and function.
In specific to community acupuncture Kevin is available for anyone specifically with primary or secondary pain symptoms like knee hip or back pain, muscle pain or joint pain, nerve pain or migraines. Community acupuncture is often truly a quick fix as Kevin has many protocols and insists on having your pain resolved in seconds literally. Expect to feel better now. Not after ten sessions but after ten minutes. And expect the treatment to last longer and longer as you progress. Kevin takes a revolutionary approach that works to treat people quickly and for little cost.
For 18 years he has been working with waiting lists and had the pressure of dozens of clients waiting for acupuncture. As a result he has developed quick treatment plans that allow for clients to feel better with few treatments while being treated simultaneously with a room full of clients as relaxing and healing together. Client retention is not the goal he wants to see people leaving well and happy so more can come and benefit.
Education, motivation and support are all part of Kevin’s treatment style and expertise to manage and prevent problems or pain long after you have left.
As an aside from the Pain and problems Facial rejuvenation and wrinkle removal are also a popular treatment with many people in entertainment or media . Kevin’s years of Spa experience come in handy in this regard. He is very skilled at lifting the years off ones face or helping the tummy look that much nicer.
