Dr. Jeannie Achuff, ND, is a passionate healthcare provider and educator. Her medical training and clinical practice has been focused in women’s reproductive health, including a certificate of midwifery and natural childbirth from the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, OR. She has been in private practice as an ND for 10 years, but her passion for herbal medicine, midwifery, and birthing emerged at age 16 when she felt moving in her the deep stirrings of the lineage of women-as-healers. Dr. Achuff has taught anatomy and physiology, as well as western clinical medicine, to massage and acupuncture students in California and Oregon, and takes great pleasure in creating a juicy learning environment for students to expand their sense of knowledge, their sense of self, and their own capacity as healthcare providers.
Dr. Achuff currently practices at the U-Retreat Spa and Wellness Centre in Victoria, with a primary focus in women’s pelvic health and reproductive medicine, and manual pelvic bowl healing techniques including Holistic Pelvic Care (trained by Tami Lynn Kent) and Arvigo Techniques of Mayan Abdominal Therapy (ATMAT). She also maintains an active patient base in one of her previous locales, Berkeley, California. The undercurrent of Dr. Achuff’s service in medicine and healthcare is a passion for working with the vital energies of yin and yang, the healing of the feminine energy here on earth, and bringing healing and balance back into ourselves as humans so that we may live more tenderly and more respectfully with one another and in the web of this planet.
