Tamara Kuss is a licensed Acupuncturist, Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine and NAET practitioner. Her passion and interest in alternative medicine arose from wanting to help patients in a holistic and natural way. Acupuncture allows her to treat by diagnosing and addressing the root cause of issues instead of just symptoms. Healing is achieved by balancing the body and mind. She creates individual treatment plans for each patient and is honored to be a part of their healing journey. Tamara prescribes Chinese herbs blended for your particular health goals to accelerate the healing process. NAET uses Acupuncture meridian theory as well as kinesiology and is a powerful technique used to eliminate allergies and/or sensitivities and often involves working with/ releasing blocked emotions.
Tamara practices primarily in Calgary, but she is excited to provide her expertise to patients in Canmore, Banff, and the Bow Valley as well.
People everywhere are struggling with anxiety, and from a personal perspective, I can definitely relate.
It may manifest for you in a wide range of symptoms: a tight feeling in the chest, heart palpitations, feeling like you have a lump in your throat, struggling with nausea and diarrhea, dizziness, feeling faint, feeling overwhelmed and out of control. Sound familiar?
I have treated a great deal of anxiety and I love offering acupuncture for anxiety as the results are usually immediate! Acupuncture helps to regulate and balance the nervous system, reducing the amount of time spent in “fright/flight” mode and restoring calm.
If you are struggling with anxiety and stress, I'd love to help.
Acupuncture is amazing at optimizing fertility. If you and your partner are struggling with conception, I'd be honoured to help.
Acupuncture assists with "nourishing the uterus,” balancing hormones, and regulating your cycle. But more than that, I always include the emotional aspect - the mind/body connection has a profound impact on your health.
For the best results, I prefer to treat both partners, optimizing key factors to increase the likelihood of conception.
For women, acupuncture treatments are timed at critical points of your cycle to improve the likelihood of ovulation and increase your chance of maintaining a healthy pregnancy.
For men, balancing testosterone, improving the stress response, and addressing the emotional aspects of procreation can have a dramatic effect on sperm motility and sexual function.
My greatest reward is always the chance to meet the babies and celebrate with the parents I was able to help!
All holistic healthcare providers dream of having a “wellness practice,” where the majority of patients come in to maintain wellness. Instead, many of us are caught up in the Western idea of healthcare, which is actually an “illness care” model.
In ancient China, patients paid the doctor for their wellness visits, but they did not pay when they were ill. It was their doctor’s job to keep them well!
I am excited to work with those who take their health seriously and want to maintain their wellness at any age.

NAET is a non-invasive allergy elimination technique that uses a specialized machine designed in Europe to desensitize the body to allergens. Tamara uses acupuncture meridians and points to assess you for reactivity, and administers treatment right away! The result is reduced susceptibility to the allergens that are problematic for you, reducing your body’s hypersensitivity response. This reduces or even eliminates your body’s inflammatory response to allergens.
NAET draws from several established treatment modalities to deliver a unique allergy elimination treatment. Chiropractic care, with its extensive knowledge of the nervous system and neurological function, provides insight to possible neurological impingement that contributes to body and organ dysfunction. Kinesiology informs us on neuromuscular function in the body, and allows the practitioner to test the effect of a substance on the body. Acupuncture, an ancient medical system with thousands of years of recorded cause-and-effect treatments, provides a great deal of insight into how body systems are working. Acupuncture meridians and points are used to deliver the therapeutic treatment. Energy flow and organ function is optimized, improving well-being and body mechanics, and reducing hyper-reactivity that is the hallmark of environmental allergies and food sensitivities.
