Elyse has owned and operated successful businesses since she first got the entrepreneurial bug after graduating from University. Her first was an English language retail bookstore that she opened in Montreal when she was 22 - and sold 5 years later for a profit. Her second business, manufacturing bulk incense and scented products for retail markets across Canada, was also a huge success. She became interested in TCM in the mid-90’s.
Elyse then focused her energy on TCM and became a registered Shiatsu therapist, then an acupuncturist, and was able to combine her two loves - helping people get healthy, with creating healthy businesses - and built a quarter-million dollar acupuncture practice! In fact, according to a survey done by the NCCAOM in 2014, Elyse’s clinic, Southwest Integrative Wellness, was in the top 10% grossing acupuncture clinics in the United States.
Elyse has since moved back to Canada, and she is excited to share her holistic practice management approach with other acupuncturists and RTCMPs, to help them reach their financial and practice goals in an ethical and sustainable way.
