Katie Saruwatari was born and raised in Lethbridge, Alberta. Growing up in this community taught her the value of contributing to the community and giving to others; these values combined with a naturally generous personality inspired her to pursue a career where she could help others.

Katie was initially interested in obtaining a nursing degree. This interest had led her to a job at the hospital to see if this interest could manifest into a career. Kismet struck as a back injury led Katie to seek any therapy that could offer her relief from the pain and discomfort. At best all traditional methods could offer was temporary relief, Katie then turned to Acupuncture. Initially not knowing much about it Katie went with an open mind and discovered the restorative and healing ability of Acupuncture. So moved by the success and positive experience of the treatment Katie decided to enroll in an intensive three program and follow a career in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).  Katie now strives to educate the public on how Acupuncture and TCM can work for everyone in many situations and not just in an acute injury or rehabilitative manner. Diligently learning about wellness herself has turned Katie’s life around and she now hopes to help others in the same way.

Katie graduated from the Alberta College of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine with a Doctorate in Acupuncture. She holds, in good status, an Alberta Acupuncture License with the College and Association of Acupuncturists of Alberta.

Katie has successfully treated a wide range of ailments including acute and chronic pain, headaches and migraines, women’s health issues, infertility, stress, anxiety and sleep disorders, just to name a few.
