Registered Acupuncturist
About Audrey
Audrey Long, BSc, R.Ac., is a graduate of The Michener Institute of Applied Health Sciences and a registered Acupuncturist with CTCMPAO. After obtaining her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology at The University of Western Ontario, Audrey was in pursuit of a career goal that bridged her personal philosophy of health and wellness that is grounded in ancient Chinese medicine with her understanding of the practical needs of the modern world.

Audrey discovered an outlet for her passion that was grounded in her own origins. As she explains it, “The principles of Chinese medicine are consistent with my own values and how I believe people should live their lives. Delivering healthcare solutions that are holistic and focused on the entire body and mind give me a great sense of accomplishment as I treat my patients.”

Audrey’s training in traditional Chinese medicine included acupuncture, herbal medicine, TuiNa (Chinese Massage) Qi Gong and Tai Qi. In addition to her formal program at the Michener Institute, she has also completed other short programs which include Acupuncture for Pregnancy and Labour and Cosmetic Acupuncture. The latter was provided by Mary Elizabeth Wakefield, one of the leading proponents of facial renewal techniques in the world today.
