Chris Jeffrey Acupuncturist

About Chris

Chris Jeffrey is of Metis/Saulteaux/European decent and grew up in North Vancouver,  spending time at Lynn Canyon and on the local  Vancouver mountains. So it's no surprise that after traveling and living in different parts of the world, she decided to return to North Vancouver to raise her own children.   

The kids are all grown up now, so Chris found a new hobby in podcasting.  Women on the Brink   is a podcast designed to support and encourage women dealing with different types of stress and adversity, with an emphasis on Traditional Chinese Medicine and Indigenous teachings - it will be released on various podcast platforms in 2024.

Chris's career in health began at the Australian Institute of Holistic Medicine in Perth, Australia, where, as a Naturopathy student, she developed an interest in Iridology and Nutrition. She became a Registered Acupuncturist at the PCU College of Holistic Medicine in 2013 and a then went on to become a Personal Health Coach in 2018. In 2021, Chris completed the Manual Lymphatic Drainage  Course Level 1 and Level 3  at the Vodder School International.  In 2024 she trained with the Indigenous Center of Midwifery to be an Indigenous Doula,  a role that provides emotional and physical support to birthing mothers and their families, with an emphasis on the cultural, spiritual, and traditional practices of Indigenous people.

 

One of Chris's passions is to be involved in community.  She was a volunteer Acupuncturist at the North Shore Women's Center from 2013-2018 and at the Mt. Kilimanjaro Grouse Grind for Alzheimer’s (MKGG) 2014 Fundraiser.  In  2023 she became an I-SPARC (Indigenous Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation Council)  Leader, implementing an 8 week hiking challenge for members of Metis Nation British Columbia.  And in 2024, she became an Indigenous Auntie,  a role that provides strength and support to her Metis community;  this year she is proud to be a part of the  2024 BC Summer Games,  standing beside young  Indigenous and non-Indigenous participants.
