Meet Jessie Li, R.Ac.
We experience illness on a physical level, but in order to be healed, we must understand where true healing begins: within our hearts and minds.
-Lama Zopa Rinpoche-
It seemed Jessie was always struggling with illness since she was very young. She experienced digestive problems, headaches, insomnia, hypothyroidism, depression, pains. These problems stopped her from attending school many times. She was called a "medicine container". However, Jessie's health started improving once her sister became a Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner (TCMP) and set up an Acupuncture & Tui na massage school in her hometown, she started receiving TCMP therapies and her health improved greatly.
After moving to Canada, Jessie attended Oshio College of Acupuncture & Herbology in Victoria, and became a Registered Acupuncturist (R.Ac.).
Through her self-healing and education of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Jessie believes that our emotions and conscious mind deeply affect the body, which is a mini universe, with all beings connected to each other. Her approach is that any kind of health issue is a blockage--a blockage within the interior of the body or a connection to others; find the knots, untie them, physical, mind, this is healing...
Jessie now feels grateful for the challenge and illness she endured: in ways, she thinks of it as a kind of karma which has led her to understand illness more deeply and personally, and to help her know her purpose and be in a better position to help others.
Jessie practices acupuncture, acupressure, gua-sha, fire cupping, chinese herbal food therapy consultation, and guidance and support diet & wellness suggestions.
