Ting-Hsia—or Tina, as her clients know her—may have been destined to practice traditional Chinese medicine. Both her mother and her father were practitioners, and they used TCM to treat Tina’s frequent illnesses when she was growing up. A weak immune system typically kept her down, but over the years, traditional Chinese medicine such as acupuncture, tui na massage, and herbal therapy gradually restored her health. This increased overall wellness may be due to traditional Chinese medicine’s ability to stimulate the body’s own self-healing properties, something she feels Western medicine currently can’t achieve.
Now a certified practitioner herself, Tina aims to escort bodies down their own paths of healing through a cadre of the same non-invasive, holistic techniques to which she was privy as a child. In order to tailor each treatment session to individual clients, each visitation starts with a consultation. After discussing the issue and answering questions such as “Will this hurt?” and “Can you make it hurt?”, she devises a treatment plan that integrates acupuncture, massage, and Chinese herbs she mixes on the premises.

At Dancing Hands Massage and Healing, therapist Melissa Brown has found a way to combine two of her great passions: bodywork and world cultures. These passions have a way of informing and enriching one another, as was the case when Melissa's expertise in bodywork allowed her to travel to Africa to practice therapeutic massage.
Today, Melissa can most often be found at her own relaxing studio in Victoria. Regardless of where she is physically, she can always be counted on to think outside the box. Aside from traditional modalities such as deep-tissue and Swedish massage, Melissa practices a technique of structural integration known as Hellerwork. Invented by Joseph Heller, this dynamic technique incorporates penetrating bodywork with movement education and dialogue designed to help clients better connect with their bodies.
LalliCare Day Spa brings an expert staff of massage, acupuncture, neurofeedback training, craniosacral therapy, Feldenkrais, nutritional counseling, and pharmacy services together under one roof. Opened by Sukhi Lalli more than 15 years ago, the practice has grown from a pharmacy to a full clinic. As it grew, LalliCare's crew hasn't let go of what originally set Sukhi apart as a pharmacist: a service-oriented approach that takes time to educate clients, encourages them to ask questions, and uses a team-based approach that ensures the staff stays ready should it be challenged to a game of kickball by a rival business. The clinic also offers many laser-assisted treatments such as spider vein and body hair removal and skin rejuvenation.
