Dr. Katie Li-Broussard
Registered Acupuncturist and Dr. of Traditional Chinese Medicine
Since I can remember, I have always been fascinated by how the body works. Growing up, I have always known about Chinese medicine and how acupuncture is a great way to heal the physical and mental aspects of our bodies.
I completed an undergraduate degree in neuroscience from the University of Lethbridge, and furthered my studies at the Alberta College of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Following the completion of the program, I was fortunate to work closely with Dr. David Chu, a pioneer in the acupuncture known for his work with cancer patients and complex cases, for three years before starting my own private practice. I have had the opportunity to work closely with the Briar Hill Midwives for the last 6 years and enjoyed it thoroughly.
I find that through acupuncture, I help people improve their health and wellbeing. I like to use acupuncture to offer relief for pain and injury and help to improve mobility and encourage a healthy active lifestyle. I love being a part of the journey to help women to become pregnant if they are experiencing fertility issues. I also enjoy offering help throughout pregnancy and preparing women for labour and delivery.
Dr. Katie Li-Broussard graduated from the Centre for Behavioural Neuroscience at the University of Lethbridge with an undergraduate Degree in Neuroscience. With great passion for holistic medicine, she continued her education and graduated from the Alberta College of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine with a diploma in Acupuncture and a diploma in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Dr. Li-Broussard began her internship in the last year of school with a TCM Doctor from China who specialized in woman's health including fertility, gynaecology, and menopause. Shortly after completion of her year long internship, she worked alongside one of Calgary's leading acupuncturists and mentor, Dr. David Chu. Specializing in cancer and complex cases, Dr. Li-Broussard worked in his busy office for nearly 3 years observing, studying, and treating before confidently going into private practice.
Dr. Li-Broussard is currently a member of the Alberta Association of Acupuncture. For the last 5 years she holds a busy full time practice at one of the largest holistic health centres in Calgary, and has just recently joined the very talented team of practitioners in Airdrie’s finest wellness centre, Blessingways Chiropractic Wellness Centre. Her practice embraces wellness of the mind and body with special focus in the following areas:
- pre and post natal care

- stress management
- pain related conditions
Dr Li-Broussard is also the founder, president, and leads the research and development sector of Organic Rituals Handcrafted Skin Care. With over a decade of experience in aesthetics and high end cosmetics, she has spent many years creating a luxury line of skin care that unites precious natural ingredients and pure essential oils with rich, beautifying personal care products that are free from harsh chemicals and toxic ingredients.
Dr. Katie is one of the most compassionate professionals I have ever dealt with. The information and support I have received throughout my pregnancy has been a god sent. Dr. Katie takes the time to listen and get to know her patients on a personal level.
After a car accident Dr. Melanie recommended acupuncture as part of my recovery. At my first session with Dr. Katie I noticed almost instant relief from pain. I’m seeing her every week now and I can hardly wait for my appointment.
I came for acupuncture. I was sooo nervous but had an amazing experience. Couldn't wait for my 2nd appointment! Dr. Katie was so great!!!
Dr. Katie (Acupuncture) is wonderful. She is genuinely concerned about your well-being and health. Like many, I wasn't sure if acupuncture was the answer. I have been seeing Dr Katie for a year now and feel great. Definitely worth the drive out to Airdrie.
I would like to review Dr. Katie, as my acupuncturist and Tanya for massage. Both are just warm and caring practitioners. They go the extra mile for me all the time and I truly appreciate their professionalism.
