NAHEED ATCHA RAC, RMT
Registered Massage Therapist
Naheed is the Core Team’s Registered Acupuncturist and Massage Therapist. She has been with us since 2015.
Naheed’s career in healthcare began nearly 20years ago and during that time she has been able to help her clients with the various skills she has attained. Naheed continues to pursue studies to further her knowledge and skill base so she can go on providing care to those who need it.
Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) are true passions in Naheed’s life. She first came to appreciate the many benefits of acupuncture in 1999 when during exams she experienced an anxiety attack. Her classmate at the time was trained in acupuncture and treated her with incredible results. Naheed’s symptoms dissipated within minutes allowing her to complete her examinations. As years went on she sought out the care of various acupuncturists and TCM practitioners to deal with chronic headaches, body pains, digestive complaints, and eventually women’s health issues. It was at this point that she was introduced to Chinese herbal medicine. In just two years of therapy she was able to stop taking 7 prescription medications and to this day remains off of them.
The successes in her own health lead her to pursue studies in TCM and acupuncture. She currently holds her license as a Registered Acupuncturist (R.Ac) while she continues to study herbal medicine to eventually become licensed as a Registered Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner (RTCMP). Her special interest when working as an acupuncturist is in women’s health.
At Core Chiropractic and Rehabilitation Naheed offers Acupuncture, Fire Cupping, GuaSha (dermal scraping), Moxibustion (burning of a medicinal herb on or near acupuncture points) and TuiNa (Chinese acupressure point massage).
As a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) Naheed has been able to offer her clients the benefits of healing touch using Swedish Massage, Myofascial Trigger Point Release, Soft Tissue Release Technique, and has now added Acupuncture and air suction cupping (with silicone or plastic cups).
Naheed considers it a privilege to be entrusted with the care of her clients’ health and wellbeing. She looks forward to assisting you on your wellness journey.
