Elisha Maye Veldhuijzen is a licensed and board-certified acupuncturist (CTCMA) and a Reiki Master of the Usui Ryoho lineage. Her diverse education includes photojournalism, floristry and applied theatre. Her passion for creating balance, and curiosity about what it means for all of us to be human, can be seen in her approach to health and wellness.
Elisha earned her Acupuncture education from Pacific Rim College in Victoria, BC, and has worked as an acupressure practitioner since 2019.
Elisha has been dedicated to a holistic approach to wellness, as demonstrated in her work of many years as a Reiki Master, a Qigong teacher, and Shi Liao (food therapy) coach.
Passionate about mental and emotional wellness, she brings (combines science and intuition) a holistic (scientific and intuitive) approach to supporting health to mind, body and spirit. She teaches Qigong and Shi Liao (food therapy) to her patients intending to empower her patients to find a balance toward greater happiness and fulfillment from within.
First-generation-born Australian Elisha grew up with a rich introduction to multiculturalism. At age 20, Elisha lived in Europe, later immigrating to Canada over 16 years ago. Now, as a devout Taoist, she offers her deeply-compassionate space-holding skills with her culturally-rich life experience in all treatment spaces.
Elisha practices Chinese Medicine and Reiki from a safe and compassionate world lens; she is trauma-informed, gender-inclusive, and an ally of LGBTQIA.
When not in treatment with patients or teaching Qi Gong, Elisha can be found hiking and foraging in the magical forests of Vancouver Island with her friends and her sweetheart dog.
