Tennille Carter, Registered Acupuncturist
Name: Tennille Carter
Tennille received her Doctor of Traditional (DTCM) Chinese Medicine diploma from a Canadian College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Victoria, B.C., Canada. Originally exposed to the power of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) while on midwifery internship in Senegal, West Africa, she was taught to use classic acupoints to turn babies in breech presentation, lower blood pressure and ease pain in labour and delivery.
Between finishing her acupuncture training and completing the five year DTCM program, Tennille took a year long internship in a training hospital in southern India, where the primary focus was on detoxification for patients with diabetes and different forms of arthralgia. Most recently, Tennille has been working with the Chinese medical team in the main government hospital in Zanzibar, Eastern Africa.
With a deep respect for the practice of medicine Tennille draws much inspiration from witnessing those with pain and chronic conditions come out of their suffering with methods that are not only safe and effective but also side effect free.
Tennille is currently practicing in Sidney, B.C.
