“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”
– Audre Lorde, poet, activist, feminist

Individual Sessions

Let go of pain and stress. Nourish your body and spirit. Naturally manage your stress, anxiety, moods and sleep. Find natural supports for your journey with cancer, chronic pain, or other illnesses. My treatments are personally tailored to your health condition and goals, and combine:

  • acupuncture
  • massage / bodywork*
  • Chinese medicine nutrition
  • moxibustion and cupping (traditional adjuncts to acupuncture)
  • mindfulness coaching
  • wellness and self-care coaching

You deserve holistic care that fits in with all the other healing work and approaches you feel are helpful. I work with, and can refer you as needed to, excellent naturopaths, counsellors, herbalists, chiropractors, biomedical doctors, registered massage therapists, Shiatsu therapists, physiotherapists and other practitioners in the Toronto area (sorry, not as familiar with Nanjing yet).

*I practice a form of Traditional Meridian Massage, a circuit of the head, neck, shoulders, hands, and feet to balance the major energy channels of the body — excellent for clarity, emotional balance, relaxation, sleep promotion, and energy renewal. The massage may be practiced through clothing, and I often integrate pieces of the circuit into personalized acupuncture treatments, depending on the specific health balance and goals you bring to our session.
