Kelli Taylor, R.Ac., RNCP, NAET Certified
Kelli Taylor is a Registered Acupuncturist at Elements Wellness Centre. She is a graduate of the five-year Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine program at the International College of TCM in Vancouver. In May 2006, Kelli had the pleasure of doing her 5th-year internship in China at the Anhui Hospital in the city of Hefei. There she spent two months working in various departments in both the in-patient and out-patient buildings under different TCM doctors. This tremendous experience has allowed Kelli to become a better acupuncturist today.
Kelli started her health career as a nutritionist and is a graduate of the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. While working one on one with nutritional clients she realized the link between digestive disorders and food allergies. She decided to go study with Dr. Devi Nambudripad in Los Angeles to learn the NAET allergy elimination technique protocol. NAET is a non-invasive, drug-free, natural solution to eliminating allergies. She has found it be to very helpful in bringing balance and harmony in the body and has been able to help numerous people live symptom-free lives for nearly twenty years.
A large interest for Kelli is Women’s Health and Well-being. She has done many extra studies over the years in women’s health such as infertility, pregnancy, PMS, menopause, endometriosis, PCOS, dysmenorrhea and other women’s issues. She has had great success in helping women conceive, reduce and/or eliminate period pain, reduce and/or eliminate hormonal migraines, reduce stress and anxiety, relieve menopause symptoms, induce labour (aka ripening the cervix) and much more. Over the years Kelli has studied Yin Yoga and now teaches Yin Yoga for Hormone Balance. She has infused her many years of TCM/Acupuncture experience with her years of yoga experience and created Yin Body Balance. You can find more information about classes, workshops, teacher trainings as well as FREE downloadable Yin Yoga sequences for Hormone Balance, Infertility and Thyroid Balance by visiting www.lifeaskellitaylor.com. Her goal is always to help women create a healthier and more balanced body.
For five years Kelli was the lead acupuncturist at InspireHealth where she treated cancer patients with acupuncture. Patients going through chemotherapy and radiation chose to combine both eastern and western medicine to heal. She finds this type of work extremely rewarding and so decided to create some space at Elements to offer an additional day of group acupuncture. Patients now have the ability to do acupuncture at both locations. In addition, Kelli also sees cancer patients in her private practice. She helps patients with pain relief (neuropathy and post surgeries), fatigue, nausea, stress, anxiety, constipation/diarrhea and improved digestion.
Kelli has also been certified in Constitutional Facial Acupuncture with Mary Elizabeth Wakefield and Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture with Martha Lucas. What Kelli loves so much about the Facial Acupuncture is a successful treatment is not just about treating the face but the body as a whole. She is always saying…if you don’t like what is happening on your face then you must look inside the body to make the changes.
Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Reiki level 1&2, Craniosacral level 1&2, Kelli incorporates aspects of each therapy into her acupuncture treatments to create a unique individualized session for each of her patients.
She has also completed the NADA (National Acupuncture Detox Association) training as well. This training specifically got her well versed in auricular acupuncture.
Kelli completed levels one and two of the NIS (Neurolink) Modules and is now an Academy 1 graduate. This unique modality has had Kelli fascinated for well over ten years and she is very happy to have this part of her practice. This treatment is something only a handful of people are trained and practicing in BC.
