Jessica Zerr Kilb BKin, RAc, C.SMA
I'm a Registered Acupuncturist, Certified Sports Medicine Acupuncture Specialist® and Kinesiologist in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia. I completed my education at the Canadian Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Calgary, Alberta and graduated with a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine Diploma. I advanced my education with a two-month acupuncture and herbal internship at the Mianyang TCM Hospital in China, where I studied with renowned TCM doctors. Prior to studying acupuncture I obtained my Bachelor of Kinesiology from the University of Calgary and in 2015 I completed my Sports Medicine Acupuncture® certification.
With this background, and strong foundation in Traditional Chinese Medicine, I focus on treating injuries both sport and work related. Conditions such as tennis elbow, achilles tendonitis, sciatica, shin splints, shoulder tension and rotator cuff injuries, all respond very well to acupuncture. Using a modern approach to an ancient medicine, I combine kinesiology and acupuncture to provide a comprehensive treatment plan including exercises and activity modifications to suit each individuals needs. My goal is to help patients achieve their optimal health, giving them the freedom to do the things they enjoy most in life. By educating my patients about their treatment plan, I provides them with the tools to continue their healing outside of the clinic.
In my spare time I like to sail, kiteboard, snowboard, play volleyball, travel and just get outdoors.
ELECTRO STIMULATION ACUPUNCTURE | IMS
The placement and number of needles will be selected specifically for each patient based on their current condition. For the treatment of injuries, acupuncture needles are placed at the site of the injury as well as on the extremities. The points will help improve blood flow and qi (energy) to the area.
Tiny electrodes may be attached to some of the needles to send a micro pulse through the injured tissue. The frequency and intensity is adjusted to the patient’s comfort level. It is an especially effective technique for tissue in the body with a low blood supply. It works by increasing blood flow to the area, which will improve the healing process.
A type of massage used to help stimulate blood flow and relax the muscles based on Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques.
Glass or silicone cups are suctioned onto the skin where there may be scar tissue or “sticky” fascia. It is a gentle technique that helps the fascia to move freely again and release tension in the muscles. I like to refer to it as a reverse massage.
