Our Founder – Julie Shillabeer R.Ac


Founder of AcuCare Acupuncture and Facial Rejuvenation

After years of migraines and back pain due to a car accident, Julie tried acupuncture and her life was changed. She had tried many forms of pain relief before, however the chronic pain throughout her body was unable to be resolved by any other method than acupuncture. This profound and lasting change inspired Julie to dedicate her studies to Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.

Always a high achiever, Julie completed her 7 year training in 4.5 years. Following her clinical practice in China, Julie trained with the prestigious Steiner Academy in London and worked with Royal Carribean Cruise Lines, becoming one of their top five Acupuncturists internationally. Due to the high volume and variety of clients in this environment, Julie’s 12 years of experience rival 18 or more years for other practitioners. Julie also has 7 years assisting teaching with Mary Elizabeth Wakefield – the leading Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture expert in the world.Julie is the only teacher in Canada certified to teach other practitioners this exclusive modality.
