Lisa Weleschuk, TCMD, RAc

Patients and students/colleagues benefit from Lisa’s appreciation of what it means to be whole. An approach that supports collaborative understanding. An approach that defined her facility in acupuncture by observing its roots in many cultures, as well as the inseparability of mind and body —that healing must not be confined to a modality.

Instructor & Clinical Practicum Advisor
Lisa Weleschuk has been practicing as a licensed acupuncturist in Calgary since 2006. She graduated from the Alberta College of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2006, and earned a diploma in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the University of Beijing for her studies and hospital practicums completed in China.
Discovering how other cultures have developed acupuncture, Lisa was greatly impressed with the effective assessment and treatment framework provided German Auricular Medicine and studied under Dr. Beatte Strittmatter, Director of Education at the German Academy of Acupuncture. This led her to the Canadian Institute for Auricular Medicine, where she completed Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 CIAM certifications.
Her deep appreciation of what it means to be whole, through personal observation that the physical and emotional are indeed so entangled, and cannot be separated, she also completed years of study in Transactional Analysis. Through this work, she experienced that when people own their emotional processes and actively work on themselves, the physical responds on a deeper level — and she sees her role as supporting what is needed in the physical body while helping people attend to their emotional needs. Further workshops with Mark (Seva) Terrell support Lisa’s integration of deep meditational transformation into her acupuncture sessions.
