Katrina Montgomery, R.AcAcupuncture & Craniosacral Therapy

Katrina has always known that she is most passionate about helping people and making them feel safe and at ease, but wasn’t sure how to channel that energy until she discovered the world of holistic health and, in particular, acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

After receiving life changing acupuncture treatments that helped her manage chronic anxiety and depression, Katrina decided that TCM is what she wanted to dedicate herself to. So, in 2014 she entered the Diploma of Acupuncture program at Pacific Rim College in Victoria. She graduated and wrote her board licensing exams in 2017 and has been practising at Haultain Health Centre for nearly a year.

Along with offering acupuncture treatments and other TCM modalities such as cupping, tui na massage, and gua sha, Katrina has been training in craniosacral therapy and offers craniosacral treatments on a sliding scale while she completes her training.

Katrina believes that everyone’s body and inner mind already holds the innate wisdom it requires to heal itself, and is honoured to hold space and facilitate that healing journey.

Special Focuses:

Inclusivity and Accessibility

Katrina feels strongly that holistic healthcare should be as accessible and inclusive as possible, and strives to incorporate this into every treatment. She is dedicated to providing a safe and healing space for people of all sexualities, gender identities, abilities, cultures, races, religions, and physical appearances.

Mental, Emotional, and Spiritual Health

Having first discovered both acupuncture and craniosacral therapy while seeking help managing chronic anxiety and depression, Katrina has experienced first hand the profound healing that these modalities can provide. Since beginning her training, she has always been passionate about supporting those experiencing similar mental health concerns including depression, anxiety, PTSD, stress, and other emotional, spiritual, and mental traumas.

Pain

Any type of pain, from headaches to menstrual cramps to back pain can be alleviated by acupuncture. Katrina will work with you to find the root cause of whatever is causing you pain and help support in getting back to feeling like yourself.

Life Transitions

Transitional periods in life can always be tough to navigate. Whether you are going through a hormonal or menstrual transition like menopause or pregnancy, a gender transition, an ending or new relationship, or even moving to a new location, job, or any new phase of life, Katrina is passionate about helping make that transition go smoothly.

“Katrina is one of those practitioners that you immediately build rapport with. She is so genuine, gentle, and selfless in her willingness to help you, you just trust her! I saw Katrina through her practicum at Pacific Rim College, and she helped me immensely with insomnia and sciatic pain. Today, I visited her new practice at Haultain Health Centre and received a craniosacral treatment- and it was amazing! I felt my anxiety diminishing and I released so much tension that I feel I can breathe into my body better. I highly recommend Katrina to everyone looking to heal in a safe environment!”
