Meet our Acupuncturists


Dr. Stefan

When Dr. Stefan was 12, he chipped a bone in his arm and had screws inserted to stabilize the fracture. When it came to removing the screws, his family doctor used acupuncture instead of local anesthetic to numb the sensations of the procedure. He realized then and there that acupuncture was the place where science and magic meet. After graduating from Simon Fraser University and traveling the world for several years, Dr. Stefan finally enrolled in Acupuncture School, and after becoming a registered acupuncturist and Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner in B.C, he successfully challenged the first ever Doctor of TCM exam in Canada in 2005. Since then Dr. Stefan has worked extensively with professional athletes including NHL players, olympians, and ironman triathletes. He is adept at treating a complete spectrum of physical ailments with a wide variety of needling techniques. Dr. Stefan is a big believer of full body health and systemic integration, and as such loves helping people with anything they feel the desire to change. From injury repair to weight loss, if you have a goal chances are Dr. Stefan can help you achieve it.
