Dr. Lai received his doctor degree from The University of Western States in Portland, Oregon. He worked in many prominent clinics in the Portland area, and gained an extensive amount of experience. Kevin then moved back to his hometown in Vancouver, B.C. and has been providing care to his patients since. After settling in Vancouver, he obtained his degree in Acupuncture. When he was younger, he obtained a Bachelor’s degree (B.Sc Nutritional Sciences and Food Processing Sciences Double Major) from University of British Columbia. Dr. Lai believes what we eat/drink daily is tremendously important to our health.
When it comes to integrative medicine, Dr. Lai believes in the traditional belief of an all-around true holistic practitioner, where the summation of different treatments in one setting is more effective than jumping between specific practitioners for different needs. This drives him to be excellent in many areas. With Acupuncture and Nutrition he is able to treat more internal organ/diet problems. Kevin uses Chiropractic and physiotherapy modalities to heal external physical problems. Personal training and Strength and Conditioning are often incorporated after Chiropractic for better injury rehabilitation, and achievement of physical goals.
Kevin is experienced at treating various problems of the general population, senior citizens, and athletes with sports injuries. With a passion for helping others, Dr. Lai wishes to improve the longevity, health, and mood of people in the Vancouver area through his knowledge of integrative medicine.
