After living in southeast Asia for four years, Alecia and David Chin returned home to Vancouver to open a studio that encompasses the healing properties of yoga and Thai yoga massage that were learned abroad. Chakra Wellness Studio is a sanctuary where yoga teachers focus on centering body and mind through 75-minute classes such as hatha flow, kundalini yoga, and beginner’s yoga.
Having studied Thai yoga massage in the mountains of Thailand, Alecia promotes tranquility and wellbeing by manipulating clients’ bodies into yoga positions while kneading muscles and joints. Certified in chair massage, she can also bring relaxing bodywork and deep breathing techniques to a client's workplace or home inside the Allegory of the Cave. Alongside other yoga instructors, Alecia leads ten-week, 200-hour teacher training courses that cover everything from anatomy and physiology to the history of yoga and many of its variations.
Cutting-edge technology and New Age philosophies collide at Canadian MediPain Clinic, where treatments are based on groundbreaking medical research, but remain entirely noninvasive. GaitScan technology puts the focus on the feet, capturing 2-D and 3-D representations of pressure distribution to help identify improper alignments impacting other joints throughout the body. Canadian MediPain Clinic also has a location based in Calgary.
