TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE (TCM) & ACUPUNCTURE & YOGA INSTRUCTOR
Queenly studied Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) at the Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine Academy. During her training as a TCM Practitioner, she also attained certification as an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner with the Ontario Osteopathic & Alternative Medicine Association, to better understand different treatment methods for injury and pain management. Prior to getting her TCMP license, Queenly has been a Registered Yoga Instructor, (RYT) since 2010, and she has been teaching yoga ever since. She later added training in Pilates and TRX to diversify her approach to health & fitness.
In clinic, Queenly thoroughly observes the client’s needs and presented symptoms. She’ll then apply TCM theories to assess the state of the body’s vital energy, “qi”, in order to make an informed diagnosis. Impaired circulation or obstruction in meridians and organs can be the root cause of various symptoms such as physical tightness, pain, impaired breathing, headache, anxiety/stress, weakened immune function, mental and emotional distress, and fatigue. Therefore, she uses acupuncture, herbal medicine, cupping, massage, gua sha (fascial gliding), moxa, and dietary therapy to expel pathogens, stop pain and manage ailments in order to restore smooth qi flow and internal balance. Queenly strives to live an active and sustainable lifestyle to empower clients to become more proactive with their own healthcare.
Things I love
Outside of the clinic and teaching, Queenly likes to cook with local and organic ingredients and support local businesses. She also takes beginner contemporary dance or ballet to challenge herself. Her favourite ways to unwind include hiking, having good food and laughs with friends, reading, and taking trips to beautiful destinations.
