Sparwood Chiropractic welcomes acupuncturist

Laurie Sibbeston, a registered acupuncturist, is joining the team at Sparwood Chiropractic.

Laurie Sibbeston, a registered acupuncturist, is joining the team at Sparwood Chiropractic. She started practicing three days a week in late February and is currently accepting new clients.

Sibbeston’s interst in acupuncture as a form of healing began when she observed how quickly injuries healed with the help of it.

“I saw somebody who had acupuncture after they had separated their shoulder and it was incredible. The recovery time was just so much faster, so then I started using acupuncture, and I was just so pleased with the effectiveness of it,” Sibbeston told The Free Press. “It really resonated with the way I approached life generally. I didn’t really like always getting prescribed supplements, it was such a basic treatment and it was so effective, I started becoming really interested in it.”

Sibbeston recently finished her education at the Pacific Rim College in Victoria, and wanted to bring her family back to the mountains. Her family settled in the Elk Valley, as it suits their lifestyle and interests.

“My husband is from Golden and we have kind of lived around B.C. and now that our kids are in elementary school, we are just trying to find a town that we really like and that suits our needs and we are both really into camping and snowboarding and that kind of thing,” she said. “It was kind of a shot in the dark, we hadn’t really been here before, and so we just decided to move here, and it’s been fantastic.”

Aside from working three days a week at Sparwood Chiropractic, Sibbeston also practices at Thunder Meadows in Fernie.
