About Our Acupuncture Doctor, Salin Perayotyucol – Webb
Salin Perayotyucol – Webb is a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist. She completed a five year program as a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine Diploma from The International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ICTCM) in 2009, in Vancouver, B.C., Canada to open her acupuncture clinic.
She successfully passed the Provincial Acupuncture licensing exam (R.Ac ) in 2008 and passed the Provincial Herbal licensing exam in 2009 (R.TCMP), allowing her to practice and serve as your acupuncture doctor.
Salin began her path by learning the origins of Acupuncture and Chinese medicine. In 2008, she travelled to China to study to become an acupuncture doctor, including practice of 320 clinical hours at The Second Affiliated Hospital of Anhui University of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
While studying, she learned hands on Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine & Chinese Massage. To become a more knowledgable acupuncture doctor, she spent a lot of time in orthotics/gynecology/endocrinology (including obesity, diabetes)/ Chinese Medicine and Pharmacology. She also spent time with the inpatient department where she observed the work required with heart and stroke patients.
“At the hospital in China where I practiced my clinical hours, there are two departments that work together as one. One is for modern health care, another is for Traditional Chinese Medicine. Both departments are working together to help patients to get the most benefits. I wish that one day this will happen to health care in Canada.”
In 2009, Salin opened her first private acupuncture clinic in the heart of Kitsilano, steps to Granville Island. In 2019, Salin Acupuncture moved to Nanoose Bay, BC, opening the new clinic to serve residents of the area, including Nanaimo, Parksville and Qualicum.
In her private acupuncture clinic, Salin successfully treats a variety of health concerns including pain management, sport injury, stress/depression, gynecology disorder, cold/flu, digestive disorder, children disorder just to name a few areas where she has assisted others in her acupuncture clinic.
“I have been helping a lot of patients with their pain which I have been proud of. I help them go back to work sooner or even in some cases not to have surgery.”
Her Facial Rejuvenation is also popular among women who do not want chemicals like Botox in their body but want natural healing and long lasting results ” Healthy skin starts from within”.
Salin never stops learning, even though she practices as a full time acupuncture doctor. For the last 2 years. she has volunteered at an Integrative Cancer Centre with mentor, Gerard Tan, who has over 25 years experience in cancer care. In her spare time, she takes classes in continuing education to update her skills, so she can remain up to date with current trends in health care. See more of her services here.
