Aysha began her acupuncture journey when her own health was threatened. On the recommendation of her yoga instructor she made her first visit to a DTCM. After 3 months of acupuncture treatments, herbs and a wealth of new found knowledge her life was changed. She no longer needed her medication and was in control of her health. Within months she changed her life’s path and began her schooling as a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
She began her studies at the Alberta College of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine in Calgary where she received her Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Interest in sports medicine motivated her to attend the Southwest Acupuncture College in Boulder, Colorado where she was trained in Acupuncture Sports medicine.
Aysha worked at Southcentre Health and Wellness, a large multidisciplinary clinic in Calgary, for 3 years. She worked at Alberta’s only in-tox center for a year treating people in recovery. Here she used her other specialty as an Acupuncture Detox specialist using the NADA protocol to treat addictions and PTSD. She was also an instructor at the Alberta College of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine for a brief period before her life went in a new direction and brought her to Comox.
Aysha moved with her family to the Comox Valley in 2014 to slow down and spend more time with her kids. She thoroughly enjoyed the amazing community that has welcomed her in and dove right into the west coast lifestyle. In the summer of 2015 Aysha was ready to get back to the career she loved and joined the team at Fit Chiropractic. After 2 wonderful years there she decided to go out on her own and start her own business. That’s when Inner Strength Acupuncture and Health was born.
When she’s not working you can catch her hiking, in a yoga class, walking on the beach with her Basset Hound, or simply hanging with her husband and kids.
