Colin Harris, MSN, RN, DTCM, R.Ac. AOBTA-CP

Meridian Balancing is the region's leading provider of cutting edge technology (AcuGraph TM) applied to the principles of Acupuncture . Colin Harris is trained in the use of this technology, one of only a handful of practitioners in British Columbia. Colin completed a 4 year program in Traditional Chinese Medicine and is both a registered acupuncturist and a registered nurse. He has also studied numerous osteopathic modalities, such as craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation, positional joint release and fascial release techniques that can be integrated into the treatment to improve outcomes as your condition requires. 

The use of the AcuGraph system allows Colin to measure and analyze the energy balance of each of your acupuncture meridians (channels). This provides a more accurate assessment of the imbalances in the Qi (energy) between your upper and lower body, the left side to the right side of your body, what areas are in excess or what areas are deficient. These imbalances can lead to a stagnation in the flow of energy, and the circulation of blood leading to stagnation and pain, organ dysfunction and hormonal and emotional disturbances. This technology allows for a much better-informed decision regarding your condition and the optimum and specific treatment unique to you and your presenting condition. Merdian balancing is a whole body and whole person approach to health and wellness

In addition to Acupuncture, Colin has also had extensive training in the use of Neurostim (micropoint stimulation), and laser acupuncture modalities that allow him to treat and stimulate acupuncture points without the use of needles. Experience has shown that this can be even more effective than the use of needles at times depending on the treatment needed. This can be a benefit to clients that may have a fear of needles or have had painful experiences with previous acupuncture treatments. 

Meridan balancing focuses on balancing the merdians (channels) which can improve organ function, improve digestion, reduce pain, reduce stress, increase circulation, resolve musculoskeletal conditions, resolve emotional disturbances, and increase energy and well-being.
