Then in the early 90’s Katherine decided to turn her focus to computers and studied programming and systems analysis as well as electronics.  After over a decade of working in technology she decided to  follow her true passion.  Katherine enrolled in the Acupuncture program at the highly esteemed Academy of Classical and Oriental Sciences in Nelson British Columbia.  During her stay out west Katherine had the opportunity to work in Nelson’s community acupuncture and addictions  treatment clinic.  Working at the addictions treatment clinic only added to her already extensive knowledge in mental health.

After several years out west Katherine was missing the Ottawa valley and returned home for B.C. too purchasing Lumina Health and Rejuvenation Clinic.  Since 2012 she has been slowing shifting the business to a non-needle practice allow more people to enjoy being treated using acupuncture points on the meridian systems of the body.   She has included an array of other complimentary treatments such as Acupressure, Reflexology, Health Recovery Chips(nano chip technology), Cupping and Gua Sha, Aroma Therapy, EFT (tapping) and so much more.

At Lumina our flagship service have always been facial and body rejuvenation treatments.  Our approach to a non needle practice has brought us to an amazing new system using Micro Light therapy.  This technology was developed according to the principles of Chinese medicine by Darren Starwynn O.M.D out of Arizona. Energy Light Rejuvenation (ELR) works in harmony with the natural energy systems of the body. It combines Micro-current and Therapeutic Light and Colour to re-educate facial muscles and addresses the underlying causes of visible aging. Katherine is happy to say that she can now provide clients with all kinds of non-needle treatment that will enhance inner balance and outer beauty.

Another passion of Katherine’s is women’s health. Katherine wrote her TCM thesis on prevention of menopausal symptoms starting at any age. Her interests in women’s health encompass different spectrum’s from fertility to menopause.

If you’re looking for preventative aging treatments or to enhance your existing Wellness and beauty, Katherine will work with your individual needs to help you achieve your goals.
