Biography of Isabelle de Roquette-Buisson - Acupuncturist

Who am I?

After building a career in the tourism industry and then in the administrative sector, I worked for several years in human resources management. My first contact with acupuncture was as a patient, at a time when I was looking for more autonomy in maintaining my health and well-being. Passionate about the human body and how it works, I completed studies in acupuncture. This allowed me to discover the notion of holistic health, which is closely intertwined with our lifestyle and our emotions.

Our health and well-being depend upon a delicate balance of factors. Sometimes, a transition to a new equilibrium can happen in a disordered way, and may cause discomfort or even pain. This is where acupuncture reveals its full potential: it helps the body find a new balance in harmony with our constitution, our temperament and our lifestyle.

 

My training

A graduate of the Acupuncture Studies Program at Collège Rosemont (Montréal, Québec), I am registered with the Ordre des Acupuncteurs du Québec and I am a member of the Association des Acupuncteurs du Québec.

After completing my acupuncture training, I did 480 hours of internships, which allowed me to successfully treat many cases of musculoskeletal injuries caused by daily activities or sports. I also took part in a social acupuncture pilot project, with the goal of making acupuncture more accessible to as many people as possible. In addition, I was able to integrate another therapeutic method by applying the meridian approach using Dr. Tan's technique.

 

How can I help you?

My professional practice is driven by my values of listening, rigour and collaboration. I apply my extensive training based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, while considering elements of Western medicine. My years of experience in human resources have given me a keen ability to listen and work collaboratively, which I now place at the service of patients and when collaborating with other therapists, in order to optimize the health and well-being of patients.

I am trained to help all types of problems. Whatever area of your health you are looking to improve, I will be happy to support you in your process.
