Registered Acupuncturist and Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine
Dr. Nicole Bend is a licensed Acupuncturist, registered with Alberta Health and Wellness, and is a member of the College and Association of Acupuncturists of Alberta. Dr. Bend graduated from the Alberta College of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in 2003 where she received her degrees in both Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Nicole had the pleasure and distinction of working with and apprenticing under Dr. Bing Zhou, L.Ac., a renowned Acupuncturist and Doctor from China.
In addition to her general practice, Nicole specializes in Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture – Constitutional Facial Renewal, also called cosmetic acupuncture. This program was created by Mary Elizabeth Wakefield, one of the leading proponents of facial renewal techniques in the world today. This alternative procedure is offered for those interested in a holistic way of caring for their skin. Nicole’s private practice, Healing Hands Health and Wellness in Calgary, Alberta, offers this popular anti-aging therapy in a relaxing spa like atmosphere.
Nicole’s particular style of acupuncture is notable for those who are unfamiliar with this timeless method of self healing and rejuvenation. She is a gentle practitioner that knows each patient is an individual and tailors each treatment to your specific needs and of that patient during each treatment.
