Paul Gaucher R.TCM.P


Hello!  I'm Paul Gaucher, and I've been a TCM practitioner and acupuncturist for 17 years now. I originally earned a diploma in the Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine program, graduating in 2006. This 5 year full time program involved intensive studying of acupuncture, herbalism, diet, nutrition, and emotional health.  I'm grateful that me and my family (I'm a father of 3) moved from Nelson to be a part of the Creston community in 2016. 


 In addition to my regular practice, I'm an instructor of acupuncture techniques and Chinese Medicine, and clinical observation at the Kootenay Columbia College in Nelson, B.C. 

At a young age, I had a deep fascination and connection with nature, and I loved to climb trees and find bugs!  This innate curiosity of life inspired me to study, and ultimately, to practice alternative medicine.  This is a calling rooted in a deep respect for the healing power of nature and a commitment to guiding others toward their highest potential for health. I see each patient as a unique individual with their own story, and it's my privilege to be a supportive companion on their journey to wellness. It's my vision to bridge ancient healing techniques with the modern health challenges of today.

"I believe in myself, the wisdom of my body, and my ability to return to my natural state of health"
