Lisa Weleschuk has been practicing as a licensed acupuncturist in Calgary since 2006. She is a graduate of the Alberta College of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2006, recognized with a Traditional Chinese Medicine diploma from the University of Beijing for her studies and hospital practicums completed in China.
Lisa was greatly impressed with the effective assessment and treatment framework provided German Auricular Medicine and studied under Dr. Beatte Strittmatter, Director of Education at the German Academy of Acupuncture. She completed her CIAM Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 certification at the Canadian Institute of Auricular Medicine, where she is now Clinical Practicum Advisor.
Her deep appreciation of what it means to be whole, through personal observation that the physical and emotional are indeed so entangled, and cannot be separated, she also completed years of study in Transactional Analysis. Through this work, she experienced that when people own their emotional processes and actively work on themselves, the physical responds on a deeper level — and she sees her role as supporting what is needed in the physical body while helping people attend to their emotional needs. Further workshops with Mark (Seva) Terrell support Lisa's integration of deep meditational transformation into her acupuncture sessions.
