What are things you enjoy doing in your spare time?
Well now that I am back on the island, I’ve been connecting with lots of friends again which has been so nice! I love going for walks in nature and also cooking and baking :) And of course, love watching Britbox! :)
Non-profits you should be watching?
SUPPLY! My friend Ashley is so amazing and passionate and everyone should check them out! They are a creative reuse centre for art, school and office supplies and have so many amazing programs to check out!
What is your super power?
I think probably intuition! It really has been a pretty powerful tool now that I am finally listening!
I spent a lot of my life not really connecting with my body. I didn’t understand a lot of medical issues I started dealing with and when my doctor couldn’t tell me what was wrong I got even more lost! I think acupuncture and East Asian Medicine have been so profound at helping me really connect and understand how my body and mind work but also how they work together! I am so thankful to have met and worked with such amazing acupuncturists who truly inspired me to become one.
Describe community acupuncture in a nutshell?
Community acupuncture is a way of making acupuncture more accessible and also gives the added benefit of healing as a community. People coming together to collectively heal, there is nothing better!
Heart & hands is…
A space for everyone :)
