Raeghan Siemens B.Sc. DTCM, Rac. After receiving her B.Sc from the University of Alberta, Raeghan studied Chinese Medicine at the Canadian College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Victoria, BC. Compelled by Chinese medicine’s 2000-year-old history of treating woman’s reproductive disorders, Raeghan pursued postgraduate studies in obstetrics and gynecology under Dr. Randine Lewis, infertility expert and author of the Infertility Cure, and notable acupuncturist and midwife Raven Lang.

Raeghan practices at Acubalance Wellness Centre, treating all stages of women’s reproductive wellness, from enhancing fertility, through pregnancy, birth and postpartum. By working collaboratively with other health caregivers such as physicians, midwives and doulas Raeghan is able to provide the most comprehensive and effective care for her clients.

Patients come to me feeling fearful and stressed. They feel like they don’t have control over their own bodies. But soon after we begin treatment they start to feel confident about their choices and their bodies. I love my job because I get to see that kind of transformation again and again.

Not only is she a qualified acupuncturist, Reaghan is a certified aroma therapist, and has studied Reiki, Therapeutic Touch and Jin Shin Do. She is currently aspiring to add Yoga Master to her impressive repertoire.

Raeghan has been thrilled to share her knowledge about the fertility benefits of Chinese medicine with the public, appearing as a guest on Breakfast TV and In Your Shoes on Shaw Cable TV. Raeghan lives in White Rock with her husband Dave, daughter Ardyn, and dogs Lyle and Libby.

*Raeghan is currently on Maternity leave and will return October 2010*
