Elizabeth Heffelfinger, Registered Acupuncturist in Halifax

Feeling healthy is a personal experience. Health is an experience of responsive and stable balance and the ability to meet life's challenges thereby transforming pain and the affects of stress to a sense of well-being.

Elizabeth Heffelfinger brings her life experience to her acupuncture practice, as well as 25 years of acupuncture experience! In 1998, Elizabeth graduated from the Santa Barbara College of Oriental Medicine and passed both the California and the USA Licensing (NCCAOM) Board exams. Elizabeth practiced Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture and Classical Five Element Acupuncture in Califonia until 2007. Then she brought her acupuncture practice and experience to Halifax, Nova Scotia, a place she loves! Elizabeth continues to provide the same high quaility of health care, providing acupuncture treatments to many people in the province.

Together with the patient, she works, not only with acupuncture, but also dietary and lifestyle adjustments, Chinese herbs, counseling, and exercise advice to help the patient arrive at healthy balance and vigor.

Personal Inspiration, Intent & Commitment

"I have experienced the power of various methods of the ancient healing arts, such as acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, yoga and meditation. The experiences of strength, relaxation and synchronization are unmistakable and profound. It is my wish to make this available to those who are interested."
