CHRISTIAN SAINT-PIERRE

🇫🇷 Version Française

Christian a passĂ© toute sa vie adulte Ă  analyser et Ă  intĂ©grer les concepts classiques et avancĂ©s de l’acupuncture. Il a commencĂ© Ă  s’intĂ©resser Ă  la pratique après avoir constatĂ© les effets merveilleux qu’elle avait sur sa grand-mère. Elle souffrait de la maladie de MĂ©nière, vertige qui l’empĂŞchait de marcher en ligne droite. InformĂ©e par son mĂ©decin que rien ne pouvait ĂŞtre fait pour elle, elle dĂ©cida d’essayer l’acupuncture. Ă€ la fin du premier traitement, ses vertiges avaient disparu et elle Ă©tait capable de marcher Ă  nouveau normalement. Elle a continuĂ© Ă  voir l’acupuncteur une fois toutes les deux semaines et n’a plus jamais souffert de ses symptĂ´mes.

La formation en mĂ©decine chinoise de Christian est très diverse. Dans son adolescence, il a commencĂ© Ă  apprendre Ă  traiter les blessures sportives avec le massage chinois et des onguents Ă  base de plantes dans le cadre de sa formation de kung-fu. En 2002, il a dĂ©mĂ©nagĂ© Ă  Nelson en Colombie-Britannique afin d’Ă©tudier l’acupuncture à l’AcadĂ©mie des Sciences Orientales Classiques. Après avoir obtenu son diplĂ´me en 2005, il a ouvert sa première clinique Ă  Mahone Bay, en Nouvelle-Écosse, et a continuĂ© d’affiner ses techniques afin de mieux aider ses clients et la communautĂ©. En 2009, Christian a Ă©tĂ© invitĂ© Ă  enseigner Ă  l’AcadĂ©mie internationale de mĂ©decine traditionnelle chinoise Ă  Ottawa, en Ontario. LĂ -bas, il a Ă©galement crĂ©Ă© un club de Tai Chi, Kung Fu et Escrime. En 2012, prĂ©fĂ©rant la pratique clinique Ă  l’enseignement, il a dĂ©mĂ©nagĂ© Ă  Cornwall et a ouvert une clinique d’acupuncture avec son Ă©pouse, Julie.

Christian est inscrit à l’Ordre des praticiens et acupuncteurs de la mĂ©decine traditionnelle chinoise de l’Ontario (CTCMPAO). Il pratique la mĂ©thode de l’Ă©quilibre, un style d’acupuncture taĂŻwanais unique et très efficace. Christian est Ă©galement un praticien certifiĂ© de Bazi et participe Ă  des consultations et Ă  des ateliers.

Christian has spent his entire adult life analyzing and integrating both the classical and cutting-edge concepts of acupuncture. He first developed an interest in the practice after seeing the wondrous effects it had on his grandmother. She suffered from menière’s disease, a dizzying condition which prevented her from walking in a straight line. Informed by her doctor that nothing could be done for her, she decided to try acupuncture. At the end of the first treatment, her dizziness was gone and she was able to walk normally again. She continued seeing the acupuncturist once every two weeks and never suffered from her symptoms again.

Christian’s Chinese Medical training is very diverse. As a teen, he began learning how to treat sports injuries with Chinese Massage and herbal ointments as part of his Kung Fu training. In 2002, he moved to Nelson BC in order to study acupuncture at the Academy of Classical Oriental Sciences. After receiving his diploma in 2005, he practiced and continued refining his techniques so as to better help his clients and the community. In 2009, Christian was invited to teach at the International Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Ottawa, Ontario. While there, he also established a Tai Chi, Kung Fu and Fencing club. In 2012, preferring clinical practice to teaching, he moved to Cornwall and opened an acupuncture clinic with his wife, Julie. In 2019, After seven years of successful practice, Christian and his family moved to Nova Scotia and opened a clinic in Dartmouth, where he now practices.

JULIE SAINT-PIERRE

🇫🇷 Version Française

Julie s’est tournĂ©e vers l’acupuncture en 2005 après une sĂ©rie de chocs anaphylactiques rĂ©vĂ©lant de nombreuses allergies alimentaires. Son allergologue au QuĂ©bec lui a dit qu’elle Ă©tait une cause perdue. Elle Ă©tait si allergique qu’elle ne pouvait mĂŞme pas recevoir des injections d’allergie. En tant que cuisinière professionnelle, Julie Ă©tait dĂ©terminĂ©e Ă  trouver une solution. Elle avait entendu dire que l’acupuncture pouvait aider. Douze traitements plus tard, Ă  son grand plaisir et Ă  la stupĂ©faction de son allergologue, Julie a de nouveau pu manger 15 des 16 aliments qui lui Ă©taient auparavant interdits.

DĂ©bordant d’un dĂ©sir ardent d’aider les autres qui pourraient se trouver dans des situations aussi dĂ©courageantes et apparemment sans espoir que la sienne, Julie s’est lancĂ©e dans l’Ă©tude de l’acupuncture Ă  l’AcadĂ©mie Internationale de MĂ©decine Traditionnelle Chinoise Ă  Ottawa, en Ontario. Elle a obtenu son diplĂ´me du programme de 2100 heures en 2012 et a fondĂ© Access Acupuncture Ă  Cornwall avec son mari. Après avoir dĂ©couvert que sa fille avait reçu un diagnostic de maladie cĹ“liaque, elle commença Ă  se concentrer sur la pĂ©diatrie et fonda Access Acupuncture Kids – une clinique pour enfants.

Julie turned towards acupuncture in 2005 after a series of anaphylactic shocks revealed numerous food allergies. Her allergist in Quebec told her that she was a lost cause; she was so allergic that she couldn’t even receive allergy injections. As a professional cook, Julie was determined to find a solution. She had heard that acupuncture could help. Twelve treatments later, to her delight and to the amazement of her allergist, Julie was once again able to eat 15 out of the 16 foods previously forbidden to her.

Filled with a burning desire to help others who might find themselves in situations as discouraging and seemingly hopeless as hers, Julie threw herself into the study of acupuncture at the International Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Ottawa, Ontario. She graduated from the 2100 hours program in 2012 and established Access Acupuncture in Cornwall with her husband. After finding that her daughter was diagnosed with Celiac disease, she started to focus on pediatrics and founded Access Acupuncture Kids – a clinic for kids. After seven years of successful practice, Julie and her family moved to Nova Scotia and opened a clinic in Dartmouth, where she now practices.
