Rest In Peace Giovanni Maciocia

The TCM community is mourning the loss of Giovanni Maciocia, a man who dedicated his life to sharing his knowledge and passion for Traditional Chinese Medicine with today’s practitioners.
His textbook, Foundations Of Chinese Medicine, was one of the first books I bought when I started school and I still use it for reference today.
His passing has left a void in our profession, but his countless textbooks, courses, webinars and newsletters contain a vast amount of information that will continue his legacy.

Welcome Kim Tran, R.Ac!

As most of you know, I will be going on maternity leave at the end of the week. I have arranged for my good friend and colleague Kim Tran to take over treatments while I’m gone. Kim and I met at the Toronto School of Traditional Chinese Medicine and studied under the same teachers. We have similar training and I am confident that she will take good care of my patients while I am away.

Kim has  been coming in to the clinic over the past few weeks to job shadow and see how I do things. Some of you may have met her already. If not, you will meet her in just a few short days as her official start date at the clinic is Friday September 23.

Kim’s hours at the clinic will be:

Monday 10am-1pm

Tuesday 10am-7pm

Friday 10am-7pm

Appointments can be made via our online schedule at www.besthealthacupuncture.com or by calling reception at 905.553.9255

Kim Tran, Registered Acupuncturist

All my life I knew I wanted to be a healer.  I’ve always felt much attuned to people’s energies, and making people feel better was just so natural to me.  I was drawn to Chinese Medicine in high school, when I chose to do a research project on Acupuncture.  It was amazing to me to learn that our bodies could provide its own healing with a little help from tiny needles.  I was truly mesmerized by the list of ailments that could be treated with Chinese Medicine. How is it possible that Acupuncture could help with so many things such as; pain, infertility, headaches, addictions and mental issues? Chinese Medicine called out to me. Through intensive training at Toronto School of Traditional Chinese Medicine, I learned the theories behind the success of this 3000+ year old medicine.

I am happy to extend a helping and healing hand, while our beloved Amanda gets some well-deserved family time during her maternity leave.  I have faith that I can care for you, and help you along your path to wellness and good health.
