June’s discovery of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture
As a Dental Hygienist, June began to feel the effects of repetitive strain on her wrist, elbow, and shoulder. While seeking some relief from the ongoing pain with various health care practitioners, June began to take a closer look at and to explore other perspectives on health. She was amazed at the effectiveness of acupuncture treatments with Dr. Hong Zhen Zhu in Victoria, BC, and was inspired to study and practice Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Her studies in Traditional Chinese Medicine began in 1997 at the CCAOM in Victoria. June has studied and achieved certification in Singapore and Shanghai, China. June did a hospital internship performing acupuncture under the direction of Dr. Wang in the Stroke Unit at the Shu Guang Hospital, while studying TCM and acupuncture in Shanghai.
A graduate of the International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine of Vancouver, in 2012, June is a Board-Certified, Registered Acupuncturist with the CTCMA, the licensing board for all acupuncturists and TCM practitioners and doctors in BC.
June continues to be inspired by her mentors and teachers Samantha Jennings, Brad Whisnant, Dr. Richard Teh-Fu Tan, Master Tung, Kiiko Matsumoto. Her love of learning never ceases.
A few testimonials about June's Acupuncture practice
"I came to see June over a year ago for chronic back pain that traditional treatments just didn't seem to work (Shiatsu, Chiropractor, Massage Therapy to name a few). They all seemed temporary. I am amazed how quickly acupuncture fixed me! It's like 'scratching that itch' I couldn't scratch. Now June and I are exploring the other amazing benefits of Acupuncture; treating digestive issues, anxiety, and more! I love the philosophy of 'self healing' and how acupuncture promotes your body to heal itself. THANK YOU JUNE!!" ~JMH, 48
"I have been going to see June Brimacombe for chronic lower back pain and amazed at how much better my back feels after only 4 acupuncture/cupping sessions. The tightness in my lower back has released and I am starting to feel like my old self again. I am now able to mountain bike every morning, pain free! Thank you so much, June, for getting my life back on track." ~JG, 52
"I was referred to June by a kinesiologist who was treated by June. I experienced many noticeable benefits within weeks, most importantly I conceived my first child. I sought out June's services because I had experienced challenges conceiving and I was up against a family history of reproductive health issues. June was thorough in assessing my needs and circumstances, and addressed my fertility issues as well as other immunity and muscular issues I had been suffering from for many years. June realized so many more benefits of acupuncture for me than I thought possible. I would strongly recommend her services to anyone seeking to improve their fertility or general health and wellness with an effective and professional practitioner." ~ CN, 37
