Cristina Bucci completed her studies at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and attained the professional designation as Registered Holistic Nutritionist (R.H.N.) in 2007 and also completed her Advanced Nutrition Studies in 2012. Cristina hopes to share the knowledge that she has gained to educate others on the importance of proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle in order to reach optimal health. She enjoys working with clients one on one in order to develop a customized plan that gives the client suggestions on diet, supplements and lifestyle changes to help bring the body back into balance. Her background as a dancer, choreographer and teacher has also led her to develop seminars with the specific needs of dancers in mind. Her hopes with these seminars are to educate young dancers of the importance of a healthy diet for a successful dance career. Cristina is currently practicing in Vancouver, BC and works with various training programs and dance/performing arts academies throughout the city.

What is a RHN?

Registered Holistic Nutritionists/Registered Holistic Nutritional Consultants (RHNs) are professionals trained in Natural Nutrition and complementary therapies, whose principal function is to educate individuals and groups about the benefits and health impact of optimal nutrition. Mainstream medicine does not emphasize the significance of poor nutrition as a major cause of a wide range of health disorders. Although most people are aware of the benefits of sound nutrition, the range of conflicting information available to the consumer is often confusing. RHNs guide their clients through the maze of information from books, magazines, supplements and diets on the market. They work with clients to identify and help correct the nutritional causes of diseases, and they are qualified to design personalized diet and lifestyle programs that optimize health.
