Mark Bodnar, BA(Hons), R.Ac., CAT(C)

I am the founder and director of Vancouver Island Integrative Medicine. I work extensively with Migraine sufferers and have been helping people out of pain for over 15 years. With my unique background in Chinese Medicine, Athletic Therapy, Nutrition, and Functional Medicine I have a wealth of knowledge and experience with chronic conditions of all kinds but I commonly see patients with autoimmune disorders, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia in addition to migraines.

My journey began with always being sick as child and sustaining many sports injuries during my youth. This eventually developed into many other health problems which frequently led me to the doctor’s office. These experiences motivated me to study Kinesiology which gave me a better understanding of the body, and from there I became an Athletic Therapist because I wanted to help others get out of pain. Meanwhile my health problems, mainly migraines at that time, were continually increasing with no answers from medical doctors, so I started to search for different types of therapies and went on I went on to study Chinese Medicine, Nutrition and Functional Medicine because it these therapies really focus on the person, not the disease and looks to identify the root causes that are affecting your health.

Are you tired of being told that your issues are “normal” or that “nothing else can help”? I would love the opportunity to discuss how I might be able to help you. Please contact me for a free consultation so we can discuss your health.
