Acupuncture treatment uses needles to stimulate pressure points on the body to relieve pain and other ailments. By unblocking energy meridians, acupuncture therapy can restore balance to the body.
Shiatsu 90 min
Nature's Way Holistic Health
The Zen shiatsu we offer is like a massage version of acupuncture, without the needles. The oils and stroking movements of massage are replaced by gentle stretching and deep pressure covering both broad areas and specific points along defined lines or meridians. These movements promote free flow of Chi or energy. A skilled therapist works with the body’s signals and adjusts a treatment accordingly. The treatment leaves one feeling profoundly relaxed, in “balance” and with less tightness and pain.

Carmelle LeMaistre Acupuncturist
About Acupuncture I practice a lineage of Japanese acupuncture taught by Kiiko Matsumoto, that was passed down to her from Master Kiyoshi Nagano. This style of acupuncture emphasizes abdominal, neck and meridian palpation, to asses the state of the nervous system and internal organs. The gauge of needle and depth of insertion is generally smaller and shallower to provide a gentle and pain free experience. There is also an emphasis on moxibustion, which is the soothing practice of burning of an herb on the surface of the skin, to further illicit a parasympathetic response in the nervous system. The goal of every treatment is to balance the autonomic nervous system and ensure the bodies natural healing processes are functioning optimally. To reduce inflammation, pain and modulate immune responses. I also utilize infra-red heat therapy, which penetrates deep into fascia and tissue, to bring regenerative blood and circulation to areas of discomfort. About Me Coming from a background in social justice work, I have a passion for building accessible care in communities. Prior to becoming a licensed acupuncturist I spent many formative years working in mental health and outreach with local women’s resources and marginalized youth in-care. It has been this community work that informs the lens of healing justice from which I view health. That our personal wellness is linked to systemic oppression, disconnection from the land and from each other. And that all of these factors influence our nervous systems resiliency to stress and dis-ease. I have been practicing acupuncture since 2012 and opened my licensed private practice 2017. In addition to receiving my Diploma of Acupuncture and registering with the CTCMA, I have trained in the teaching hospitals at Liaoning University of TCM in Shenyang, China and completed 5 years of private clinical mentorship. My ongoing education focusses on Japanese KMS lineage acupuncture and somatic trauma integration. My work is informed by emerging neuroscience, trauma theory, cultural somatics, decolonial values, plant spirit medicine and my many beautiful mentors and teachers who have enriched both my personal and professional life.
