Coming from a large family with generations of experience in healing and medicine, Shawne is a strong believer in an integrative medical approach, with the patient being the leader of his/her own healthcare team. Her passion is in educating patients on how to take charge of their own well-being by being their own advocates, utilizing Chinese Medicine, nutrition and movement as tools to help attain their individual health goals.
Shawne encourages her patients to lead a balanced life with a healthy amount of Yin & Yang in every aspect, and strives to incorporate this into her own lifestyle. Her favorite Yin pastimes include qigong, meditation, yoga, and cooking for her son João and husband John. Her Yang activities of choice are cycling, swimming, snowboarding, hiking, and exploring new sites with her boys.
