My love for everything Chinese started in 2009 when I accidentally faced information about professional courses on becoming a Feng Shui consultant, and I signed up immediately. At that time Chinese geomancy was just a fascinating hobby; however, one day my prestigious well-paid job in a large corporation just couldn't make me as happy as my Feng Shui practices. I was already involved in the professional studying of Chinese Metaphysics including Feng Shui, Chinese astrology Bazi, Strategy Qi Men Dun Jia, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Dietology. I discovered a brand new magic world where I could get inspiration, inner energy and positive vibes. I was looking for extra online courses delivered by the best schools such as Joey Yap School and Master Le Yao School. 

Also I graduated from the Toronto School of Traditional Chinese Medicine with an Acupuncture program. I had been practicing Acupuncture in the TSTCM clinic and the Dorothy Lea Hospice for one year, during my search for my own approach to health diagnostics and Feng Shui knowledge. I continue to study Chinese Metaphysics every day under coaching sessions with my Masters. I successfully pose my approach in treatments mixing Chinese Arts knowledge – from medicine to FengShui. I love taking care of people and helping them to get better inner and outer wellness because I believe all energies are connected. I can focus on your dreams, and I can help you to create a unique path – from strong health to better life using all my knowledge and experience. My passion is to inspire people and encourage them to be health and successful. Let’s meet and work together!

I was born in Hong Kong and was privileged to be exposed to both Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Modern Western Medicine at an early age. It was embedded in my everyday life when we spoke about which vegetables are cooling and which fruits are warming. As a child, I was often sick and required frequent visits to the hospital. However, it was not until my teenage years through experiencing excruciating back pains that I discovered the “miracles” of TCM. At the time, the back pains were so severe I could not stand or walk for long periods of time without rest. Eventually, my mother found a TCM practitioner in Chinatown through a friend and I visited him every day for two months. Little did I know that those two months were to change my life forever. Years later, I enrolled in the Toronto School of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

I believe that there is always more than one solution to every challenge and creativity can be an incredible source to allow us in finding multiple solutions. When I am not at the clinic, I also engage in community organizing in a variety of ways. I am the founder of the Where Are You From Collective (WAYF), an art-based and activism program that aims to build capacity for marginalized and racialized Queer and Trans people, as well as connecting diasporic racialized Queer and Trans communities. WAYF celebrates racialized Queer and Trans identities, creative expressions, endeavours, and achievements by offering workshops, events, and creating an online platform for self-representation.

It is part of my core belief that healing and transformation happen on multiple levels, including the emotional, mental, social, spiritual as well as physical. All these levels are interconnected and impact one another. As someone who is part of intersecting marginalized communities, I am quite familiar with the challenges in accessing our various systems. I find myself driven to work in communities that offer services that can allow for greater equitable access to services. I have worked with trauma survivors, people with disabilities, 2SLGBTQI+, and newcomers in various community settings. I am currently also completing my Masters's in Social Work.

I feel honoured to be given an opportunity to practice Chinese medicine as it is one of the sacred ways to connect with my ancestors, my roots, and perhaps also to heal intergenerational trauma. When I am not working or studying, I find joy in astrology readings, cooking up a delicious meal, learning about nature, and watching comedies.

 
TCM

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is based on over 5,000 years of ancient Chinese medical practices that include various forms of herb medicine, acupuncture, cupping therapy, gua sha, massage (tui na), exercise (qigong), and dietary therapy.

Traditional Chinese medicine is promoting the idea of special energy called qi which flows via meridian channels of our bodies. In this belief, if the flow of qi along these meridians is blocked or unbalanced, illness can occur. Traditional Chinese medicine doctors always look at the balance of mind, body and spirit to determine how to restore qi, yin-yang balance, and well-being health.

Feng Shui 

Feng shui aims to promote good energy or chi in one's environment. It balances different elements including the male and female, or yin and yang, and the five elements of Taoism: wood, fire, earth metal, and water, which are said to make up everything in the world. Balancing these elements helps promote harmony within the home.
