Dr. Alexina Mehta encountered yoga and the spiritual traditions of her Indian heritage at a young age and is fascinated with the possibilities of human potential. Her great grandfather- R.B. Lal Singh Mehta discovered the oldest written book ever found of earth so far, called the Diamond Sutras. The book teaches about the nature of reality, enlightenment and compassion. These teachings are an important part of Alexina's life, and she seeks to empower people to step into what is possible for them.
Her undergraduate education in Kinesiology and Fitness at the University of British Columbia gave her the initial tools to discover her own body by learning how it works on a mechanical and physiological level, while her formal training in Yoga and Pilates awoke in her the knowledge of the other levels at which the body works. She later continued her studies to become a Naturopathic Physician as well as a doula. Alexina has also trained in other healing modalities such as Craniosacral and Bowen Therapy, Autonomic Response Muscle Testing, Intuition Development, Family Constellation work, Nia dance, and Dying Consciously work. She also is a graduate of the Four Winds Energy Medicine Institute. As part of her training, she journeyed to Peru to be with the Qu’ero elders, the indigenous peoples of Peru . Currently she enjoys being a teaching assisitant with the Four Winds Energy Medicine Institute.
Alexina’s curiosity started at an early age, where she was faced with the struggle of finding her own identity. This desire to know who she was, what she was, and why she is here started her on a healer’s journey, one in which she would open to learning about the body, the mind and beyond.
She loves working with people in this domain, being at the forefront of what is possible, and allowing for such possibilities to become realities. Her life experiences have led her to a place where she knows, in every single cell of her body, that we are truly magnificent creators.
Currently, Alexina practices Naturopathic Medicine in Vancouver, BC, utilizing the modalities of herbal medicine, energy medicine, counselling, homeopathy, physical medicine, nutrition, acupuncture and much more. She is essentially a detective, teacher and doctor all in one and uses various diagnostic techniques to discover patterns, and then utilizes the most relevant modalities to address the needs of her patients while teaching them how to become more aware of these needs. She commonly treats women's health concerns such as menopause, ovarian and uterine concerns, aswell as weight loss, stress, anxiety, neurological disorders, diabetes, digestive issues like IBS, Chron's, Constipation and Celiac's disease, allergies, cancer, arthritis, learning disorders, sports injuries, skin conditions, MS, emotional and spiritual crisis, amongst many other conditions. Two other special interests include women's health and pediatrics. In her leisure time, she loves to run, dance, hike, surf and travel.
