Desiree successfully completed her Acupuncture Training at Eight Branches Academy of Eastern Medicine in 2019, and having recently written her registration exams, is currently awaiting becoming a fully licensed Registered Acupuncturist (R.Ac).

During this transitional phase the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (CTCMPAO) grants practitioners the opportunity to provide their full scope of services under the title of Acupuncturist- “Student Class”. Desiree is pleased to be completing her Acupuncture “Student Class” term at Toronto Bodyworks under the supervision of Sue Sheedy RMT, R.TCMP, R.Ac. who has been in practice since 1999.

Prior to embarking on her journey in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Desiree has over 8 years of experience working in Human Resources and Training & Development in the nuclear industry and holds a Bachelor of Business Administration.

The journey that led her to pursue acupuncture stemmed from her own personal struggles with stress that are all too prevalent in today’s fast paced and competitive environment. She is a strong advocate of blending eastern and western modalities to achieve a well balanced, holistic approach to self care.

Firmly believing that experience is the path to knowledge, Desiree is passionate about encouraging others to discover how TCM, on its own or in conjunction with massage and bodywork, can help mitigate struggles such as mental/ emotional stressors, fertility issues, musculoskeletal pain/trauma and even keep the aging process at bay.  She is committed to working with her patients to create a plan that is custom fit to their unique needs. In doing so, she aims to assist them to make proactive, educated and confident investments in their present and future well being.
