Melody Walford R. Ac

Registered Acupuncturist with CTCMA

I completed my acupuncture diploma with honours at one of the leading institutions in North America for complementary and integrative medicine, Pacific Rim College.

I am a yoga therapist and body worker trained in Swedish massage, Lomi Lomi, Reiki, CranioSacral Therapy, Thai massage, and Acupressure. With every person I assists as an acupuncturist, I draw from my diverse knowledge base to best support people on their unique journeys. My approach in acupuncture, yoga, and bodywork is to guide others using non-intrusive, gentle, and intuitive methods. I believe wholeheartedly in the power of energetic medicine and the innate healing potential within each person.

I was born and raised on Hornby Island and live in Tofino. I enjoy being fully immersed in nature through surfing, hiking in the woods, and running on the beach. Meditation and yoga are cherished practices that help me to live a more integrated and embodied life.

I have a special interest in women’s health, trauma therapy, and sports medicine. I treat a wide variety of illnesses from pain, depression and anxiety to seasonal allergies and sports injuries.
