Certified Iridology Instructors


Gillian Marsollier (M.TCM, R.Ac., CCII) successfully completed the 4-year Masters Program in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, and the provincial registration exam with the BC regulatory board, CTCMA, in 2001. Her education began at the University of Calgary in the Nursing Program. She was drawn to Emergency Medicine and was looking at completing her Nursing as an undergrad to Medicine. After completing part of the program, she discovered the field of TCM/Acupuncture and felt immediately connected to the foundation and theories. Thus began her studies in the alternative medicine field at the young age of 20. Immediately upon graduation, she moved to St. Johns, NL and mentored under a well-established and highly regarded TCM practitioner. This helped shape her practice and guide her further training immensely, especially in terms of her specialties, which to date include Iridology, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, and Holistic Nutrition. When the first college of Acupuncture was to open on the East Coast, Gillian was called upon to instruct and accepted the position with great anticipation. Her teaching career started in NL where she wrote the bulk of the curriculum for a 3-year program in addition to being the Acupuncture Program Director. She had the pleasure of seeing 3 years of students graduate from the program she had designed and implemented. Gillian was then transferred to Halifax, NS to focus her efforts on having the Acupuncture program approved with the Board of Education in NS. Her persistence and dedication paid off in early 2008 when the Acupuncture program received formal approval. In addition to teaching, she simultaneously practiced at a very successful multi-faceted alternative treatment centre while residing on the East Coast. Gillian had the honour of learning her Iridology I and II levels from Ellen Tart-Jensen. Although she was using some iridology before in practice, due to the teachings of her mentor, the formal course took her learning to a new level. She uses iridology with almost all first patient intakes, or does strictly an iridology reading + diet/lifestyle modifications should the patient choose. It has helped her confirm her diagnoses, create detailed treatment plans, give lifestyle and dietary advice according to the patients constitution, and understand the patient at a much deeper level. She feels that iridology should be a must for health care practitioners, be it natural or allopathic. She is well-known for being thorough, detailed, knowledgable and an extremely entertaining instructor! She is also excellent at finding fun and common sense ways to memorize much of the material. Gillian has been intensively teaching since 2005 and loves every minute of it. You will leave her workshops knowing and being excited about an vast amount of material. She is currently pursuing the media side of acupuncture and natural healing (currently working for The Balance Channel) to help the masses understand when and why to use natural therapies.
