    KATHRYN MACTAVISH, R.AC

    Guelph, ON

    Hello, I’m Kathryn!


    I graduated from the Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine (AIM) Academy in Toronto in 2018 and I am a registered Acupuncturist in good standing with the CTCMPAO.


    As a former competitive ski racer, I underwent many treatments for injuries sustained throughout the years. One of these treatments was acupuncture and it sparked something in me that would lead to one of my biggest passions. After trying my hand at a few other career paths, I always knew I was meant for a career in health and wellness and so I began my acupuncture studies in 2015.


    Through my clinical experience as a student, I developed a strong love for Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and its approach and versatility. I am passionate about helping others discover the root causes of their complaints and I am deeply committed to providing a safe, calm and comfortable environment to work together with you on your journey of healing. Along with my training in acupuncture, I developed a variety of skills including fire cupping, gua sha, tui na and moxibustion.


    Currently, I am also undergoing schooling to become a registered massage therapist!

    I am so excited to connect and share my knowledge and passion for TCM with you!

    CLARA CHEN, RMT

    Guelph, ON

    Hello, I’m Clara, and I’m excited to connect with you!



    With a background in Psychology from the University of Guelph and experience as a
    certified personal trainer and lifestyle coach, I approach well-being by recognizing the
    intricate connection between the mind and body in the healing process.



    My focus is on understanding the impact of lifestyle habits, dysfunctional movement
    patterns, and stress to create lasting change. Each treatment is tailored to your specific
    needs, whether addressing a condition, healing an injury, or finding relief from
    discomfort.



    Following an assessment, we’ll utilize techniques like soft tissue mobilization, fascial
    release, trigger point therapy, deep tissue work, and hydrotherapy. We’ll discuss specific
    stretches, strengthening exercises, and lifestyle adjustments to improve and maintain
    your progress.



    Believing in the body’s innate capacity to heal, my mission is to empower and support
    you on your healing journey. I vow to create a space where you feel safe and
    comfortable, allowing you to fully relax into your body.



    If this resonates with you, I’d be honored to be a part of your wellness journey. To get
    started, feel free to schedule an appointment at your convenience. I look forward to
    meeting you!
