Jenny Abel

Registered Acupuncturist & Herbalist

Illness is a message, a wake up call.  The body’s ability to heal is amazing, especially when we listen to it.  As a child I learned the value of listening to the body’s wisdom, and now practising Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) feels like coming home. 

Offering acupuncture in a gentle, intuitive way, my priority is your comfort and holding a safe healing space to connect you to your own innate healing power. I also offer Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine, Cupping, Food Cures, and self-healing/meditation resources with the goal of helping you create lasting, empowered shifts. 

Having studied Acupuncture and TCM Herbology at ICTCMV, I have also completed numerous continuing education courses in my field, including advanced training in Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture with Michelle Gellis. In addition to TCM studies, working under Master Healer Mada Dalian has brought a deeper awareness of the pivotal role repressed emotions play in our health, and the importance of addressing the mind, body, and spirit to truly heal.

While I enjoy treating a wide variety of conditions, I have a special interest in:

  • Emotional & Mental Health: sleep issues, insomnia, anxiety, depression, grief, PTSD
  • Chronic Illnesses: fibromyalgia, thyroid imbalances, adrenal fatigue, tinnitus
  • Pain Relief: back, neck, and shoulder pain, headaches, TMJ, sciatica, carpal tunnel
  • Digestion: bloating, constipation, diarrhea, IBS, acid reflux, nausea
  • Gynecology:  menstrual​ ​irregularities, PMS, STDs, cervical​ ​ripening
  • Immune system: Coughs, colds, sore throats, sinus issues, skin issues
  • Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture: fine lines, scars, and bags. It illuminates your skin, working from the inside out and the outside in to smooth away stress and fatigue.

Awards: Voted Best Acupuncturist in Vancouver in the Vancouver is Awesome (formerly Vancouver Courier’s) Stars of Vancouver 2019, 2020 and 2021 Awards.

When not in clinic I enjoy hiking and exploring coastal trails, meditating, and spending time with loved ones, especially Ava, our 10 year old rabbit. 

I am grateful to share the wisdom of TCM and help connect patients to their highest state of health. I would be honoured to be part of your healing journey.

“I just wanted to convey my gratitude for my acupuncturist: JENNY ABEL who was great to deal with for the problem in my knees. She has an excellent aura around her so you really get the sense that she truly wants to help aid your recovery. I attribute this to the western hospitality she exudes while being fully armed with the eastern knowledge of her chosen profession of acupuncture. I would definitely recommend her, especially to guide anyone who is newer to this type of special medical practice” – TH

“I recently had an acupuncture treatment with Jenny. I was in pain due to shingles. Jenny explained what was going on in my body and helped me to understand the interplay of nutrition, alignment, and my overall health. The treatment progressed as she said it would and I have progressively been eased from pain (over the 72 hours she said it would take). I am a happy, repeat client!” – JN

“Jenny Abel has the most calming presence I have ever encountered. At a very stressful time in my life, she mentioned how acupuncture is amazing for rebalancing the body and can help treat many ailments. I have had about 8 treatments and everytime I go to see her, she lights up my whole experience with her empathy and caring nature! She does all the necessary needles for what I personally want to work on and always depending on how I feel! I have such a deep gratitude for her help with my stomach issues, hormones, thyroid, and many other issues from stress. Getting acupuncture is my time to re-center myself and do something good for my wellbeing. The way Jenny has it set up in her space, makes me want to lay there in pure bliss forever!” – VL
