Who We Are
In 2004, Sue Sheedy founded Toronto Bodyworks out of a commitment to excellence in whole body care.
As word of Toronto Bodyworks’ services spread, Sue gradually expanded her one-person studio into a two-location wellness enterprise. That same commitment to excellence can still be experienced today, in every aspect of Toronto Bodyworks including client care, purchasing, and team building. Toronto Bodyworks nurtures whole body health in our patients and in the therapists who work here.
The Toronto Bodyworks facilities offer a variety of treatment modalities including shiatsu, massage therapy, Thai massage, cosmetic and traditional acupuncture, craniosacral therapy, and yoga classes. We use only high-quality oils for our bodywork therapy sessions.
Every member of the Toronto Bodyworks team is individually chosen for their exceptional skillset and their attention to the needs of their patients. Our Registered Massage Therapists are all members in good standing with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario and our Acupuncturists are in good standing with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario.
We’re always on the lookout for great additions to our team. Contact us directly to introduce yourself.
Sue Sheedy R.TCMP, R.Ac, RMT
Director / Founder
Registered Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner (Acupuncturist/Chinese Herbologist), Registered Massage Therapist, Shiatsu Therapist, Thai Massage Therapist, CranioSacral Therapist, Aromatherapist, Reflexologist
Sue Sheedy’s extensive background in bodywork includes certification in eight modalities, including western massage, acupuncture, and shiatsu. Sue is one of the longest practicing cosmetic acupuncturists in Toronto and she is also trained in NISA (deep tissue realignment), dynamic posture, Thai massage, aromatherapy, cosmetic acupuncture, craniosacral therapy, kinesiology taping, fertility acupuncture, and infant and child massage.
Sue coaches RMTs on refining their practice for better posture and alignment. In learning to do so therapists learn to better engage in their work providing a deeper more comfortable pressure. This allows the therapist to decrease the risk of injury to themselves thereby prolonging their career with reduced sick/injury time off work.
Sue has spoken at wellness events and has made appearances on Breakfast Television (2005, 2006) and for Slice TV on the series, Plastic Makes Perfect (2007). Her cosmetic acupuncture work has been featured in Vitality Magazine and Beyond Fitness Magazine.
She is a member in good standing with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture of Ontario (CTCMPAO), the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO), the Registered Massage Therapy Association of Ontario (RMTAO), and the Canadian Society of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture (CSCMA).
Toronto Bodyworks has a convenient location in the heart of Toronto, ON.
The Downtown Clinic is located on Duncan Street, close to the Osgoode and St. Andrew TTC subway stations. It’s a gorgeous 4000 square foot loft with nine private therapy rooms and a large studio that hosts yoga, movement, and community education classes. The Downtown Clinic reception area is bright and spacious, with clean lines and big windows. We put extra care into the design and build of our space to create the most natural and appealing environment from top to bottom with our warm spectrum LED lighting, refinished original wood floors and everything in between. Since many of our clients juggle busy schedules, we also provide access to showers and changing facilities.
The Toronto Bodyworks team is a select group of highly trained practitioners, all of whom are committed to excellence in care and generosity of spirit. Check out their bios here.
