Ciara McNiff, R.Ac Doctor of Acupuncture
Ciara’s passion for Chinese Medicine and traditional forms of healing began after university while volunteering in South America. Living there, she learned acupuncture, herbal medicine and massage from local healers. After eight months, Ciara returned to Canada to begin four years of study in Traditional Chinese Medicine at the Canadian College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Victoria BC. During this time, Ciara worked as a massage therapist at a local spa.
In 2006, Ciara moved to Calgary and began working as a Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner, incorporating both acupuncture and herbal medicine. Ciara has a special focus on women’s health, fertility (both male and female), pregnancy, birth, post- partum care and stress reduction.
As time passes, Ciara’s passion and respect for Chinese Medicine continues to grow. Each patient is unique and Ciara enjoys learning from her patients and creating specialized treatment plans for each individual. Challenges are met with enthusiasm as Ciara is excited to learn new techniques and delve deeper into traditional knowledge.
When Ciara is not working, you can find her with her three kids outside exploring, biking, skating or heading out to the mountains eating a snack that has vegetables snuck into it 🙂
