Erin West's bio

This content was provided by Erin West "Dr. West graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Cellular Biology from California State University Fullerton in southern CA where she was raised. She then moved to Canada and completed a 5 year doctorate in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) at Pacific Rim College of Integrative and Complementary Medicine in Victoria, British Columbia. Dr. West is Nationally Board Certified in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine by the NCCAOM and licensed with the state of Arizona. Dr. West has always been passionate about medicine, healing, preventative medicine, and working with her hands. During all of her educational years she worked as an emergency Veterinary Technician which has refined her skills and intuition, whether her patients are humans or animals, to facilitate the best care to those she treats. With an emphasis on internal medicine, infertility, and pain management, Dr. West strives to bring her knowledge, compassion, and experience to an expanding healthcare field where she can help her patients start living the life they always wanted. When Dr. West isn't working, she is spending time with her family, exercising, learning to better care for her patients, volunteering her time as a certified hospice volunteer for Hospice of the West, and helping with animal causes. She met her husband during graduate school in Canada and he has since left the Royal Canadian Air Force to move back to the US with her where he is now studying full time. They have an old boy kitty named Toaster and a high energy young Boston Terrier named Mia Hambone."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Erin West "Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a complete medical system, not only a complementary therapy.  My goal is to help patients obtain optimum wellness. Dr. West uses acupuncture and Chinese medicine to safely treat all types of pain, digestive disorders, allergies, insomnia, obesity, anxiety/stress/depression, addictions, and even cosmetic rejuvenation.My area of specialty is infertility (including IVF/ICSI enhancement) and pregnancy support. Most people are unaware how safe and effective acupuncture is in routine preparation for labor or even during labor. Research has shown it to be successful in treating nausea/vomiting, heartburn, hemorrhoids, vulval varcosities, insomnia, stress or worry, turning breech or malpositioned babies, and even labor induction."

Working with Dr. West has been fantastic. When I first started seeing her I had very low energy and wasn't sleeping at night. Within the first few sessions my sleep and energy both normalized. I'm a regular client of Dr. West and see her regularly to help maintain my overall health.

I started seeing Erin after having issues with my neck and back from work.
