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.
Versed in traditional Chinese medicine and massage therapy, the practitioners of Dao Health Centre create personalized care plans to enhance patients' mental and physical health. During initial consultations, physicians learn about clients through diagnostics such as sensory observations, tongue inspection, and pulse readings. They then tailor integrative treatment plans that may incorporate therapies such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, and acupressure massage.
