Katherine (Katie) Camani-Connell

R.AC.

Katie is a Registered Acupuncturist.  Katie's treatments are based on the foundation that the human body exists to be healthy.  When things fall out of balance, it can be challenging for both the mind and body to maintain their natural state of health.  Katie uses acupuncture and Chinese medicine theory to help restore the body's natural state of balance, allowing it to heal itself and return to a desired state of health.  Katie practises with the understanding that there is no separation between mind and body - if one suffers both suffer, it one heals both heal, and if one thrives, both thrive.

Katie has experience treating pain, stress, anxiety, depression, addiction, digestive issues, trauma recovery, and most recently has been working with fertility and women's health.

Kelsey Cunningham

R.AC., C.T.H., M.A.

As an acupuncturist and western herbalist, I approach health from multiple perspectives in order to holistically address physical and emotional wellbeing. I am skilled in the use of direct moxibustion and use it as a means of gently strengthening and energizing clients living with chronic conditions. I also am a certified Holistic Nutritionist and currently apprenticing as a Thai masseuse. My outside-the-box and integrative means of problem-solving enable me to design treatment plans that address patients' unique needs and goals. I also seek to empower patients by helping them develop their own resources toward wellness through nutritional and lifestyle coaching. I am interested in pediatric and post-natal care, and have taken courses with Robin Green in acupuncture and diet- therapy for children experiencing learning disabilities.

I hold a diploma from Eight Branches Academy in Acupuncture, and a Diploma of Therapeutic Clinical Herbalism from the Institute of Traditional Medicine in Toronto. I have studied Thai Massage with TMT Toronto and the Still Light Centre in Hamilton, and Holistic Nutrition from the International Institute for Naturopathy. In addition to my training in traditional and integrative healthcare, I also hold a Master's degree in Medieval and Renaissance Italian literature from the University of Toronto. I am able to offer my services in Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and French.


Kevin Chan

R.AC., R.TCMP.

As a Registered Acupuncturist and Registered Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner, I believe in open and honest communication with patients to identify the root causes of a disorder. I approach healing by working with patients as individuals by helping them modify their lifestyle in a way that can help enhance treatment effects and lead to sustainable, longterm improvements in wellbeing. As the course of treatment progresses, I help my patients to become more aware of the signs and signals their body is trying to send. I hope not only to relieve you from your current discomfort but also to help prevent any reoccurrence and maintain a balance of mind and body for optimal health.

I hold a diploma from the Toronto School of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In addition to my academic formation, I have gained skills by working with renowned TCM Practitioners in Hong Kong, Shanxi and Canada to whom I am indebted. During my apprenticeships with them, I gained extensive clinical experiences in treating patients suffering from acute and/or chronic pain due to sport injuries, musculoskeletal disorders, gastro-intestinal disorders, gynecological disorders (infertility, menstrual issues, fibroids, menopausal syndrome) and male issues (erectile dysfunction, acute or chronic prostatitis).

I often combine ‘Tui Na’ with acupuncture and other treatment modalities (herbal prescription, cupping, and/or moxibustion) to achieve satisfactory clinical results quickly.

What is ‘Tui Na’?
Tui Na is a therapeutic form of massage with a history spanning more than 5000 years. Techniques include kneading, pressing, rolling, shaking, and stretching of the body in order to apply pressure to meridians, acupoints and groups of muscles and nerves. By manipulating the joints, viscera, fascia and soft tissue, Tui Na helps remove blockages and to restore and maintain the balance of the body. This further helps to accelerate metabolism and to gradually alleviate pain.

What is the benefit of Tuina for women with fertility issues? The combination of Acupuncture and Tuina can work quickly to transform and replenish the loss of body nourishment which can be caused by menstruation, stress and/or exertion. As a result, hormonal balance can be restored and increase the chance of a healthy pregnancy.
