Who Are We?

Portrait of Connie Zhao, registered massage therapist and registered acupuncturist
Connie Zhao, RMT, R.Ac

My name is Connie Zhao, I am a registered massage therapist and a registered acupuncturist. I have over 20 years of practical experience in each of these fields and have practiced in clinics across the world in counties like Japan, China and Canada. I learned the fundamentals and basics of Chinese medicine in China at the Northern Liao Ning Chinese Medicine College. I am a current member in good standing of both the CMTO (College of Massage Therapists of Ontario) and CTCMPAO (College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario).
From my time in China to now I have acquired many new skills and techniques through constant self-learning and encounters with new patients. I have a genuine passion for Chinese medicine and am still learning everyday as I try to perfect my understanding of the long and rich history behind the art of Chinese medicine. I believe in providing the best care possible for my clients. Ensuring that they are in a warm and comforting environment during their treatment sessions is definitely a priority of mine.
With regards to my practice techniques I strongly believe in a result oriented time efficient approach to the treatment of my patients. I am very flexible with regards to combining treatments and I will recommend whatever method I believe will be the most beneficial to my clients. More specifically, most of my treatments will involve a combination of several disciplines (massage, acupuncture, gua sha, cupping etc.) to ensure that the patient experiences an improvement in their condition after each session.
