Ann graduated from Guangxi university in her home country of China. After working as a Chinese language teacher in Thailand she followed her desire to explore the world and decided to move to Canada. Shortly after arriving in Canada Ann’s love of working with people led her to start training as a Massage Therapist in Toronto. She has been working for several years in a busy Ottawa clinic treating all types of musculoskeletal and chronic pain.
Growing up in China, Ann observed her grandmother perform acupuncture treatments on local villagers, she was always captivated by this Traditional Chinese Medicine approach. These childhood experiences and her training as a Registered Massage Therapist inspired her to further her skills and seek out other ways of helping clients. She enrolled in the Ontario College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Toronto in order to become a Registered Acupuncturist.
Ann believes that her skills as a registered massage therapist and a registered acupuncturist, will enable her to provide an effective and holistic treatment approach to her patients. She will be able to effectively treat musculoskeletal pain as well as internal and external deficiencies.
