Hello, my name is Jennifer Griffiths, and I am a Registered Acupuncturist in Alberta. I graduated from Calgary College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture in 2018.
What inspired me to become an Acupuncturist? When I was young, I suffered from chronic sensitivities and pain. This was a constant struggle; I didn’t know what it was like to feel good. I started my healing journey in 2005, which led me in many directions. Since then, I have overcome many health obstacles through various natural modalities such as Acupuncture, NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique), Chiropractic, Osteopathy, Physio, and more. Although I chose a path to help people with Acupuncture and NAET, I love to work with various types of practitioners so that my patients can get the type of care they need when they need it, as every modality has its own benefits and is needed at different points of the “healing” process. Through the help of an amazing group of practitioners, I realized I could own my health and that I didn’t have to live in pain and discomfort. Once I started NAET and Acupuncture treatments, a lot of my pain and sensitivities disappeared, and I made my biggest improvements. I was so amazed that I could achieve these results naturally and I was shocked to find out that my body knew how to heal itself.
After gaining my health back, I decided that I wanted to help other people do the same. I took an Acupuncture course which I completed in 2009 in New Brunswick and then went to Los Angeles to train with Dr. Nambudripad on how to treat sensitivities with NAET in August 2010. I was fortunate to be able to mentor with practitioners who had over 20 years combined experience. Through all of this experience, I was able to treat hundreds of people with success using NAET and Acupuncture. I developed a deep love and passion for helping others. I have since moved back to my home city of Calgary, where I have further completed studies in Acupuncture and Herbs, Tuina Massage, and Cupping.
Acupuncture is an effective tool that is proven to take away chronic pain, as well as provides a sense of well being and relaxation.
Today I feel better than I ever have before and I owe it all to natural medicine of all types, as well as the people who aren’t afraid to be different in their approach to health. I truly wouldn’t be pain free and so healthy without all of it. I look forward to helping others on their journey to health and well being.
NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique) is a non-invasive therapy to help eliminate sensitivities. NAET can be used on infants as well as the elderly. NAET is based on theories such as Acupuncture, Kinesiology, Nutrition, and Chiropractic principles. The idea behind it is that when we are exposed to allergens that our bodies sense as a threat, we develop discomfort (blockages) that can present as allergic symptoms such as sneezing, stuffy and runny noses, itchy throats, etc. We can also experience other symptoms that don’t seem like they are caused by sensitivities but actually are, such as recurring colds, unexplained pain, headaches, tiredness, emotional upsets and more. According to theories in Chinese Medicine, the discomforts we develop are blockages in our body’s energy pathways - they become blocked by these allergens due to an underlying imbalance which create the unpleasant symptoms. NAET works at removing the blockages, which allows the body’s natural ability to heal itself, eliminate symptoms and restore health.
