"Acupuncture and TCM has completely changed my life.

I started seeing her in March of 2010, and our son Maddox was born February 3rd 2011. " - V.S.

Geha Gonthier B.A., LMT, ERYT, R.Ac., Chinese Medicine & Womens Health
Surviving her first cardiac arrest at 7 years of age, the doctors did not hold much hope for Geha. Through Europe’s integrated medical care, Geha met a doctor that advised her to come off western drugs and use diet and herbs to manage her chronic condition. Over time her condition improved dramatically and inspired Geha to make holistic medicine her life’s journey.
She has explored various healing methods for over 35 years, beginning with a degree for movement therapy from the College of Performing Arts in Vienna. In 1980 she was fortunate to study Shiatsu and Oriental Diagnosis with Wataru Ohashi in New York. This marked the beginning of a deep love affair with eastern philosophy, mysticism and medicine. In the following years she studied medical massage at the Swedish Institute of New York, cranio sacral therapy with David Little, nutrition, aromatherapy and different bodywork modalities.
Over the last twenty years she has apprenticed with various teachers both in Europe as well as Maui on the subject of Chinese Medicine and herbs. In 2007 she received her Acupuncture Diploma after completing the program at Grant MacEwan College in Edmonton.
Geha has been practicing and teaching Yoga and Meditation for many years. The results of that are reflected in the gentleness and care she extends to her patients. The focus in her work is the integration of body, mind and spirit, encouraging profound healing in the most subtle levels of awareness.
