Laura has a life-long interest in health and wellness, particularly alternative and complementary therapies. After years of self-learning, she left a career in the publishing industry to pursue acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. She graduated from Toronto’s SSC Acupuncture Institute with a high honours diploma and has additional training in Cosmetic acupuncture and Japanese acupuncture. She has also developed and taught courses in cosmetic acupressure and insomnia relief for the Toronto District School Board’s Continuing Education program.
Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine is an excellent treatment for a wide-range of conditions. Possibly best known for treating pain, both chronic and acute, it is also effective at providing relief from digestive issues, menstrual issues, infertility, and insomnia, as well as stress and anxiety.
