Dr. Kim Graham
Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine
Kim graduated from the International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine of Vancouver (ICTCM) in 2002 at the top of her class, completing 4 of her total 8 years of study in both Eastern and Western medicine.
Upon her graduation from ICTCM in 2002, and successful completion of the Provincial Acupuncture licensing exam, she furthered her studies in Traditional Chinese Medicine to include the treatment of Addiction and Mental Illness, which were of special interest to her. Since then, she has continued to work with a wide variety of clientele from addicted and mentally ill populations to endurance athletes throughout the lower mainland.
Further to her successfully completing the Provincial licensing exams for Traditional Chinese Acupuncture (R.Ac) and Herbology (R.TCM.P), she also achieved the highest level of certification in BC by completing the Provincial Doctorate Licensing Exam for Traditional Chinese Medicine entitling her to the designation of Dr.TCM. She has participated as an expert committee member to improve Dr.TCM competencies for TCM & Acupuncture in BC with the CTCMA. In March 2014, she was appointed as a professional member to the Healthcare Practitioners Special Committee for Audit by BC’s Ministry of Health and sits on the Program Advisory Committee for Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s new TCM program.
This extensive training in both Eastern & Western medicine has given Kim an exceptional understanding of the human body, and a unique holistic perspective of how it works. “Balance in all things”, she believes, is the key to leading a healthy, happy life.
Kim has taken her passion for healthy living beyond her practice of TCM and acupuncture to help motivate and inspire others. In 2007 she became certified as a BCRPA Group Fitness Leader, and later as a Yoga Fitness Leader through Red Door Yoga. She currently teaches bootcamp style group fitness classes in West Vancouver with her own fitness company, and has helped many first-timers cross the finish line of their first race.
Since moving to the North Shore in 2002, Kim has taken advantage of all the athletic opportunities that it offers. It is not unusual for her to ski, bike, swim and run all in the same day. Her greatest passion, however, is for open water/ocean swimming. She can be found most days in the chill of the Pacific off of West Vancouver, well into the winter months.
As part of the Movéo team, Kim looks forward to meeting and working with you to help you achieve or recover your optimum health & balance.
