Valentina Romanov, born and raised in Russia, was originally exposed to alternative medicine through her grandmother and mother who practiced chiropractic, massage, and herbal therapies. After moving to Canada, she spent her teen and young adult years involved in sports, where her passion for health and wellbeing became more evident. She completed a personal fitness trainer diploma, which was a field that she stayed in for over 10 years. During this time, she met an acupuncturist who helped her resolve her own health issues, and open her eyes to the beautiful world of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This experience brought on a desire to expand her knowledge, and she enrolled at the Tzu Chi International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, where she completed both the Acupuncturist and Herbalist programs. Valentina uses an empathetic and caring approach where she utilizes acupuncture, cupping, tuina, gua sha, moxibustion, as well as food and herbal therapy as a part of her well rounded practice. Conditions she treats include but are not limited to acute and chronic musculoskeletal, neurological, gastro-intestinal, mental-emotional, gynecological, and respiratory issues.

My goal as a healer is to help my clients find a state of equilibrium, where they feel comfortable in their bodies, free from pain, be it physical, emotional or spiritual.
I’m particularly interested in treating emotional issues: anxiety, stress, loneliness, depression, grief, anger, lack of boundaries, soap opera, etc.–and how these toxic emotions can manifest as disease. I believe that many chronic diseases have their roots in the emotional body. As a registered Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner, I use the modalities of acupuncture, tui na, cupping, herbalism, and energy healing to address imbalance in all aspects of the body.
I began my training in Qi Gong and Chinese Medicine in 1982 with with Grandmaster Tchoung Ta-tchen and Dr. Danica Beggs in Vancouver, BC. I have studied Medical Qigong with the International Institute of Medical Qigong and Shamanistic Qigong with the Empty Mountain Institute. I am a graduate of the Tzu Chi International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine where I studied acupuncture and the Chinese herbal tradition.
