Monica Patt, R.Ac, FABORM
Monica is a graduate of the MacEwan acupuncture program and practices in downtown Edmonton.
Monica was diagnosed with endometriosis at a young age and after several surgeries it was recommended she have a hysterectomy before she was even 20 years old. As a last resort she began seeking other options. That is when she discovered acupuncture and it changed her life.
After seeing the changes it made in her own health Monica became fascinated with acupuncture and enrolled in the acupuncture program at MacEwan University.
Her own experience with endometriosis, fertility struggles and ultimately IVF to build her family is what drives her passion for the treatment of women’s reproductive health.
She is dedicated and passionate about treating fertility, pregnancy, and supporting couples undergoing assisted fertility treatments such as IVF and IUI.
Committed to providing excellent care and ongoing learning Monica has taken several courses to further develop and fine-tune her acupuncture skills. These areas include fertility, pregnancy, women’s reproductive health, musculoskeletal and sports injuries.
She is a Registered Acupuncturist with the College & Association of Acupuncturists of Alberta (CAAA) and a Fellow of the Acupuncture and TCM Board of Reproductive Medicine (FABORM). She has also completed The Acupuncture Sports Medicine Apprenticeship Program under Whitfield Reaves author of The Acupuncture Handbook of Sports Injuries &Pain.
Monica was voted for in Vue Magazine as “Best Acupuncturist” in 2016, 2015 and runner up in 2014.
She is known for her friendly, laid back treatment style and is a lifelong student.
