Laura is registered with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (CTCMPAO). She is trained in acupuncture, tuina, moxibustion, guasha (myofascial release), cupping and electro-stimulation, and uses these modalities to relieve pain, promote healing and regulate the body.
In 2016, Laura interned at the Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine in China completing in-depth studies of neurological and pain conditions, including Bell’s Palsy, neck and back pain, and stroke sequelae. Another area of focus during the internship was treating children for respiratory, digestive and developmental problems. She also works with Toronto AcuBirthing to provide acupuncture and Chinese medicine to support pregnancy and ease the transition from pregnancy to motherhood.
With previous education and work experience in nutrition, Laura is passionate about having a positive relationship with food and leading a balanced lifestyle.
As an avid paddler and member of dragonboat and outrigger teams, she has a keen interest in optimal body conditioning and athletic performance using Chinese medicine as a way to balance, tonify and repair.
