Registered Acupuncturist & TCM Practitioner
Ali Jopp is a Registered Acupuncturist and TCM Practitioner who has temporarily returned to her home city of Victoria, British Columbia to spend time with her family. She graduated from the D.TCM program Pacific Rim College in 2016, and has spent the last 5 years practicing in Halifax, Nova Scotia. In her practice, she focuses on mental health, insomnia, digestive issues, and gynaecology. As a mother, she has a particular interest, and advanced training, in maternal health, including labour preparation and postpartum care, and spent the last two years studying with Debra Betts, Kate Levett, Claudia Citkovitz, Zena Klobuchar and Sarah Budd-Bell. In addition, since 2017 she has been studying with Dan Bensky and Engaging Vitality, refining her understanding of the body from a TCM perspective, and improving her ability to engage with qi. She is excited to be working at U Retreat, as some of her most formative experiences in acupuncture school were in Malcolm’s tai qi and qi gong classes.
