Stephen Ko, R.Ac.
Master’s Degree of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine
Doctor of Chiropractic (California)
Growing up in a family with two doctors of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Taiwan, Stephen grew up in the midst of Chinese herbs, acupuncture needles, Tui-Na therapy and herbal patches. It was this approach his uncle used to treat him with when he fractured his collarbone at the age of 7.
Stephen is a Taiwanese Canadian who moved with his family to Canada when he was in junior high. He then completed a major in biochemistry at the University of Alberta.
Stephen went on to pursue a double degree in Doctor of Chiropractic and Master’s Degree of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Los Angeles, California. He is one of few practitioners in Canada with degrees in both Chiropractic and Traditional Chinese Medicine. He is now a Registered Acupuncturist with CTCMA in the province of BC. He is also an instructor at PCU College of Holistic Medicine in Burnaby, BC.
Stephen treats the body from both internal and external causes. With his background and training in Acupuncture, Tui-Na therapy and Chiropractic, he has a key advantage in treating patients with sports injuries, work related injuries, pain syndromes, frozen shoulder, knee pain, and foot problems. He is also successful with gynecological and menstrual difficulties and menopausal conditions. Allergies, digestive issues, chronic fatigue, stress/anxiety/depression, headaches and migraines, and insomnia are other conditions he is well experienced in treating.
He believes that if we treat the body as a whole we see amazing results. Working with the team at back to wellness will be an excellent combination of disciplines that will enhance treatment results with our patients.
