Coming from a family with two doctors of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Taiwan, Stephen Ko grew up in the midst of Chinese herbs, acupuncture needles, Tui-Na therapy and herbal patches. It was this approach his uncle used to treat him with when he fractured his collarbone at the age of 7.
Stephen is a Taiwanese Canadian who moved with his family to Canada when he was in junior high. He then completed a major in biochemistry at the University of Alberta. Stephen went on to pursue a double degree in Doctor of Chiropractic and Master of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Los Angeles, California. He is one of few practitioners in Canada with degrees in both Chiropractic and Traditional Chinese Medicine. He is now a Registered Acupuncturist with CTCMA in the province of BC.
Stephen treats the body from both internal and external causes. With his background and training in Acupuncture, Tui-Na therapy, dry needling(intramuscular stimulation), anatomy, and Chiropractic, he has exceptional knowledge in treating patients with sports injuries, work related injuries, pain syndromes, frozen shoulder, knee pain, and foot problems. He has also had successful results with gynecological, menstrual and menopausal conditions. Insomnia, digestive issues, chronic fatigue, stress and anxiety, headaches and migraines and depression are other conditions he is well experienced in treating.
Stephen believes that if we treat the body as a whole we can see amazing results. His approach in treating the body at both the physical level and the energy/spiritual level gives patients a unique and refreshing experience.
