I have special interests in working within the field of Women’s Health. I firmly believe that as we heal and uplift ourselves as women, and the women around us, we uplift and heal all life and the very planet we live on. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been used successfully for thousands of years to address issues of health and well-being that pertain to all areas of our life cycles as women; from menarche to menopause.
Traditional Chinese Medicine allows for individualized treatment for all health issues, and all stages of our lives as women. Through the use of acupuncture, herbal medicines, fire cupping, Chinese tui na massage, moxibustion, dietary and lifestyle counselling and womb steaming practices, TCM aids in nourishing and healing women’s bodies, minds, spirits and emotions. When we heal the women, we work to heal the world.
