Sabeeha began her training in Traditional Chinese Medicine in Los Angeles, California at Samra University of Oriental Medicine. She graduated with honours with her Masters of Science in 1999.

Sabeeha then went on to deepen her knowledge of Chinese Medicine with post- graduate certification in Classical Five Element Acupuncture. She has also been a Hatha Yoga instructor since the age of 18 and is a certified Master of Yoga through the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center. Additionally, Sabeeha is qualified to practice advanced neural therapy protocols, such as prolotherapy, vitamin therapy, and procaine therapy for pain reduction.
As Sabeeha is continually fuelling her thirst for knowledge, she wishes to share this knowledge with others. She has spoken in numerous public settings about a variety of health issues, including guidelines about diet, supplementation, exercise, and complementary therapies for achieving optimal health.
Sabeeha chooses to address the causes of illness and pain, rather than simply palliate symptoms. In addition to being alleviated of physical pain and illness, her patients are offered an opportunity to heal at a mental and emotional level. Sabeeha asserts that one can only attain true health and wellbeing by attending to all aspects of the body/mind/spirit. She uniquely combines all of her skills which she has acquired through her extensive training and life experience with her intuition to treat her patients compassionately and effectively.
Sabeeha is a certified Classical Five Element Practitioner and is licensed to practice acupuncture and herbal medicine in BC as an RTCMP (Registered Traditional Chinese Medical Practitioner). She also holds licenses in California and New York State, where she practiced Chinese Medicine for many years. She is a board certified practitioner of acupuncture and herbology, holding diplomats from the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
Prior to her education in Chinese Medicine, Sabeeha attended the University of British Columbia where she attained a BA in Classics in 1995. When not at Glow, Sabeeha is often to be found doing yoga, walking on the sea wall, or cooking up new and interesting healthy dishes.
