Tatiana Tarasenco


I am a Registered Acupuncturist with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. I received my diploma from nursing college in 1995, and I got my bachelor's degree, in Biology in 2001. With previous experience working as a nurse in a children's hospital, I had always wondered about Acupuncture for well-being and health. When I came to Canada I had a chance to study Acupuncture and have since seen the reward of helping people. Acupuncture has traditionally been used as a method of balancing the body's energy by inserting needles under the skin at specific points along energy pathways (meridians), to prevent or cure diseases and disorders. The modern Western medical or "Neuroanatomical" Acupuncture approach, however, recognizes that needles inserted at acupuncture points induce biochemical changes in the body, such as the release of pain-relieving endorphins. What I like about Acupuncture, that this treatment promotes to reactivate the body's own natural healing forces. Besides the well-known healing techniques of Acupuncture, Acupressure therapy, I also offer Cupping, Moxibastion as well as Tui-Na treatments.
