About Me


I am a Licensed Western Medical Doctor in Mexico and a Registered Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner, Chinese Herbalist & Acupuncturist in Canada.  For the past decade, I have also studied a variety of spiritual and healing modalities like Shamanism, Dzogchen, Tantra, Yoga, Taoism, Conscious Dance, Yoga & Chi Kung, that I draw from and use in my treatments.  I am also a Certified Body-Mind Therapist, trained through the Ontogony School by Dr. Carlos De Leon.  I have found that the complement of Body-Mind Therapy into my sessions has been crucial in the healing process of my patients.  I am also a Birth Doula.  I love this part of my practice because there is nothing more sacred then being a witness of a birth.  I love to support couples in their journey of becoming parents and feel honoured to be part of their birthing team.   Lastly I love to teach!  I have been teaching Chi Kung and Women's Empowerment Workshops for the past 5 yrs. I believe education to be a crucial part in a healing journey.  I love to share the tools, techniques and knowledge I have acquired for the past decade, to empower people so that they can tap into their inner wisdom, healing power and true self!  

“When you have a consultation with Irene, you are lucky enough to rely both on Western Science and Eastern Wisdom. Irene is a medical doctor in Mexico, and a TCM doctor here in Canada, where she has gathered extensive knowledge in the field of acupuncture. She offers a space of deep listening, kindness and care that are rare to find.  It has happened to me several times to see her in phases of my life where I was feeling extremely burnt out, exhausted and ill. After treatment with her, I always felt a deep, significant healing effect; so much so that we joked about having a pre-post video to witness the shift.  She is a compassionate, knowledgeable healing practitioner and I could not recommend her enough.”

I believe the integration of Western and Eastern Medicine is the future of Medicine. As a trained Medical Doctor in Mexico and a TCM Practitioner in Canada, I bridge both medicines into my practice.  I see each person as a unique individual with specific needs. This is why I use different tools to help you find true healing. During our sessions I create a contained sacred space so that you can dive deeply into yourself and find your inner powers of healing and transformation. I see myself as a facilitator of healing.  This means that I do not heal you;  the process that you and I will embark together will create a real possibility of personal transformation.   It is my biggest desire and hope that through a holistic wellness approach you will receive what you need to heal & to create powerful shifts that will bring more joy, peace, pleasure, health, and love into your life! AHO!
