Carole Potter

Carole is an experienced acupuncturist who has been in practice at Harmony Health Centre for almost a decade after working briefly in Halifax prior to moving home to the South Shore, Nova Scotia in 2012.

Her belief is that every individual has the ability to listen to their body and permit their body to learn to heal from within.

Carole has a sincere passion for the well-being of all and in practicing an evidence-based approach has been successfully helping people accomplish this within the scope of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine for many years. Acupuncture has the ability to awaken the body/mind, seek the imbalance and create a balanced and harmonious ebb and flow.

After receiving life changing acupuncture treatments herself in Vancouver in the 1990’s and then having the enriching experience of living in Liaoning Province of China for 4 years, she has acquired the unique experiences learning within the Chinese culture in the very birth place of this medicine – China! Carole became an avid member of the Taiji (Tai Chi) community studying multiple disciplines such as Medical Qi Gong, Taiji quan and Taiji dao and jian (sword and knife), and competed nationally in Qingdao province, winning a gold medal in Tai Ji Quan 42 form and a silver medal in sword form. One area of focus was spent learning the art of inner strength and healing through medical qi gong.

Carole has embraced the traditional and philosophical components to create a method of breaking the patterns of illness ingrained in the body by using compassion and wisdom to empower patients along their healing journey. She is motivated by the positive changes she witnesses in people as they continue on their path to wellness and very much looks forward to working on the path of healing with you.

The importance of the most natural state of all aspects of physical, mental and emotional health have led her to complete a 2 year intensive (3 yr equivalent) Diploma Program in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) at the Canadian College of Acupuncture and TCM. Carole is looking to pursue her Doctorate of Traditional Chinese Medicine and continuing to serve her community in a supportive, educational, and holistic approach.
