Dr. Alanna (Lani) Pickering was born and raised in the small town of Vauxhall, Alberta.

She graduated from the Canadian Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Calgary in 2013.

The internship included teachings in pediatrics, gynaecology, dermatology, oncology, cardiology, endocrinology, and cosmetology

Dr. Pickering’s first experience with Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine was during her years as a competitive dancer. First used for pain relief and then for chronic health concerns, it was soon apparent the many health benefits that acupuncture could bring. She is excited to bring Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine to Soft Tissue Rehab Centre with an ‘east meets west’ approach by combining her previous knowledge and experience of western medicine with her new and ever evolving TCM practice.
