Alexandra Herold, Reg. Ac. and Owner

"Hi, I am Alexandra! I began my studies in Holistic Health already as a teenager. After working in a corporate job for many years, I put my real passion into practice and studied and graduated as a Naturopath (Heilpraktiker) in Germany. I love learning and was totally drawn to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). TCM is around for thousands of years and has helped millions of people. Furthermore it is a complete medical system that offers not only therapeutic treatments, but also a way of life and has a strong focus on prevention and health cultivation. So in 2006 my journey took me to Vancouver to study Acupuncture and Tuina in depth at PCU College of Holistic Medicine.

After many years working as an Acupuncturist and helping people with many different ailments, I understood more and more how important a healthy lifestyle, happiness at work, meaningful relationships and healthy nutrition is for the healing and well being of us all. That motivated me further to become an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach at IIN in 2013.

I do feel fully equipped to treat, coach, guide, empower and inspire my patients to take on the necessary lifestyle changes so that they finally can transform into the best version of themselves!

I like to fuse different modalities for the best outcome.  I believe it is very important to assess a patient holistically and to customize each patient's care to their individual needs.

As my patient I encourage you to actively participate in this process and to enjoy the journey you are on! I am grateful for getting the chance to walk with you on this journey - and remember you don't have to walk alone!"

John Pacukiewiz, Business Director

"I have always loved technology, organization and the business aspect of things. Besides living a healthy lifestyle, enjoying home cooking, loving the outdoors, and taking care of my family, that includes my wife Alexandra, our son Henrik and our pets, I am extremely excited to extend my services to help the AcuComfort family thrive!

I share the passion of my wife Alexandra in keeping people healthy and reaching optimal mental and physical well-being.

It only comes naturally to support the operational side of the business and help to make sure people and clinic are both running their best."
