I graduated from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy in 2009. Afterwards I started working as a massage therapist at the S-T Natural Medicine Centre with Dr. Li and Dr. Chen. I had been working there for a few months when the process of opening the college got underway. By this time I had seen many patients get great results from their acupuncture treatments, most notably with Dr. Li’s infertility treatments. I was amazed to see these women who had been struggling to conceive, get pregnant and have babies! I have always had an interest in acupuncture but seeing firsthand the incredible results really made me want to find out more about it. I had the option of taking a 400 hour, weekend continuing education certificate program in acupuncture offered to massage therapists. But, I felt acupuncture and TCM is about intention as well as the theory and principles behind it, which I do not believe are taught in these weekend programs.
