Acuity Acupuncture is the personal practice of Owen Parnell, R.Ac. Owen was born raised and educated in Victoria, BC, and has studied Dong Han Korean Acupuncture, Qi Gong, and Martial Arts Since 2011. His interest in healing Qi Gong is what lead him to enroll in Oshio College Acupuncture Program. Though his introduction to the eastern healing arts was his mother’s practice of Jin Shin Do.
Pain relief, emotional stress and it’s physical manifestations are Owen's forte, and he produces affirming results in a broad range of conditions. He uses martial arts and meditation as tools for sharpening his awareness. This improves his ability to provide pleasant treatments with great results.
Owen practices free hand and where applicable, shallow needle technique. He is trained in the NADA (National Acupuncture Detox Association)’s 5 ear points protocol. This simple protocol helps balance the body and manage stress. He often use it in conjunction with body treatments.
Owen doesn’t view acupuncture treatment as a magic bullet for healing the body, but a tool to help the body to heal itself. We all know our bodies have amazing self-healing abilities. Sometimes our bodies are just faced with circumstances that they can’t work out on their own.
In the treatment room, Owen integrates massage and acupressure, cupping, moxibustion, TDP therapy, and range of motion exercises. Having seen how well different modalities can work together, he is excited to ally with your current health professionals, to further benefit your quality of life.
Outside of Owen’s work as a healer, he is blessed to live with his wife and young daughter. He has a background in visual arts, mostly drawing and painting, but also sculpture and graphic design. He maintains a variety of hobbies, including taichi, qi gong, iaido, kendo, juggling, and percussion.
