Mahsa Ahmadi, RAc, C.SMA
Mahsa Ahmadi, registered acupuncturist & sport medicine acupuncture specialist®, is a longterm Vancouverite and founder of "Dip in Nature", the all natural health and skincare products. Since her youth, enchanted by travel and what is learnt from cultures other than her own, Mahsa was fortunate enough to see much of the world with her family and, as a result of those journeys and the adventures that followed, she developed wide-ranging interests that drives her to this day.
Fascinated by the benefits of natural health lead to discovering her true passion: an alternative practice known as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). She completed the five-year TCM doctorate diploma program in Vancouver and became a board certified acupuncturist in 2008. She co-shares her passion with the world of sports therefor the extensive training in the advanced program of Sports Medicine Acupuncture® (SMA) in Boston in 2013 made her Vancouver's first Registered & Certified Sports Acupuncturist. Her orthopedic assessments, along with various Chinese Medicine modalities, are incorporated in all her treatments. The focus of treatments include and not limited to: trigger point acupuncture, musculoskeletal and neurological issues of the face and body, sports and work related injuries, muscle imbalances, cancer, pain and stress management, posture & surgical rehabilitation and more.
While her recent years in practice have been geared toward the treatment of acute or chronic complicated cases, ultimately her practice is dedicated to improve the lives of all patients. She takes great pride in listening to her patients’ concerns and providing them with the support necessary to help them achieve their goals.
She loves all things outdoors. The beach and mountains are her happy place where she rows, hikes, bikes or skis any chance she gets.
