Dr. Mandie Gillette studied Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine in Calgary, and is a registered Doctor of Acupuncture, with a Diploma in Traditional Chinese Medicine. She is an Acupuncturist who is passionate about her work. She was introduced to Acupuncture when she was pregnant with her daughter and then again when she sought relief from carpal tunnel pain and IBS symptoms. It was such a life changing experience for her that she made the decision to become an Acupuncturist so that she could help others experience this amazing medicine.
Her dream is to be able to share Acupuncture with as many people as possible and show them what a beautiful, relaxing, and effective treatment it truly is. Her own fear of needles has helped her develop a very gentle needling technique which most patients find surprising and comforting, and best of all, helpful in their journey to health.
If you can’t find Dr. Mandie in the clinic, or teaching what she loves to budding Acupuncture students at the school, you will find her hanging out with her beautiful daughter Amelia, Lupin the rabbit, and their very lazy, but cuddly, bearded dragon Atlas.
She says that the best part of her job is when patients make comments such as “I wish I could bottle this feeling!”
