FEES – Workshops, talks, group sessions

I provide workshops on natural cancer prevention and care, mindfulness meditation, stress, anxiety and mood management, self-care, Traditional Chinese Medicine, burnout, nutrition, acupuncture, and many other topics. I have also been brought in to offer acupuncture to groups (e.g. workplace groups, special events, etc.). I offer my skills as an experienced group facilitator, a broad background in community/ social/ environmental issues and anti-oppression, a passion for organizing and community development, and health/ wellness information from a Chinese medicine viewpoint. Please contact me to discuss details.

Financial Accessibility

We live in the reality of an increasing gap between ‘rich’ and ‘poor’. I work with everyone from executives, doctors and lawyers to people on Ontario Works, ODSP, or Old Age Security.  As a lifelong goal, I aim to work with others toward ensuring that traditional medicine becomes financially accessible to all. In both mainland China and Taiwan, I have witnessed the incredible healing that can happen when Traditional East Asian Medicine is financially subsidized in the same way as Western medicine. That means traditional doctors can make a living wage, while patients pay little out of pocket for herbs, acupuncture and tuina.

I offer a limited number of reduced fee / sliding scale spots to those in need. Please speak to me for details if you would like to discuss the details. From time to time, I also offer acupuncture for free or by-donation, at special events and fundraisers. Contact me for details, or join my monthly mailing list to keep informed.
