Sharae Mendoza is a registered TCM Acupuncturist and a member of the Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture Association of Canada (CMAAC). Sharae is also a Pediatric Acupuncturist with Advanced Shonishin Training. Her desire to heal others started at a young age when she was faced with numerous surgeries. Having overcome adrenal fatigue, anxiety, infertility, and postpartum depression, she is now an advocate to empower others with the skills and resources to take charge of their own health and wellness. Her son has also benefited from her pediatric acupuncture techniques, combating alopecia areata and sensory processing disorder. At the young age of two, she took charge of his health when practitioners told her that he would eventually “grow out of it.”
Sharae received her Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture diploma in Vancouver, BC. She is a certified Fit 4 Two® Pre and Postnatal Fitness Specialist, in addition to group fitness, aquatics, yoga, and infant massage instructor. She has helped hundreds of women and children maintain their well-being utilizing various holistic approaches.
Sharae has the skills to treat general conditions such as pain, viral illnesses, migraines, sciatica, digestion, sports injuries, infertility, and anxiety and has a strong desire to treat children through acupuncture, non-needling techniques, aka Shonishin (rhythmic stroking, tapping, rubbing and pressing), moxibustion, massage and diet, and herbal therapy. Her kind, fun, and welcoming nature puts her patients at ease and leaves them feeling inspired and educated.
