Emma has long been interested in health and wellness. In her own process of healing from food sensitivities, burnout and (intergenerational) trauma, she finds Craniosacral Therapy and ThetaHealing® to be deeply restorative. She has completed Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (Level 2) and ThetaHealing (Advanced) training and loves using these modalities to support others in their healing process. As an empath, these come naturally to her as she has always been attuned to other people’s emotions and well-being.
She also sees personal health, the health of communities and the health of the planet as interconnected. She provides care with an awareness of the crises we face today including climate and water crises, racism, gender inequity and income inequality and how these can impact our well-being. The consumerist, grind culture of the capitalist system is not only wearing on our planet, but also wearing on our health and communities.
Emma is also studying holistic nutrition. Her belief that food is medicine is rooted in her Southern Chinese culture.
She is also a writer and water and social justice activist. She is passionate about water because of its beauty, power and ability to nourish, heal and sustain life.
In her spare time, Emma hikes, swims, gardens, reads and does work in her community on climate and other social justice issues.
Emma practices in Ottawa and near Wakefield, which are on the traditional, unceded territories of the Algonquin nation.
