Meet your acupuncturists
My name is Lin, I am a Registered Acupuncturist and originally come from China.
Acupuncture is a great modality of Chinese Medicine and can help reduce pain and help you get back to your best health.
I am lucky to have come from a Chinese Medicine family since my grandmother and mother both practiced acupuncture and other medical arts such as midwifery.
As a child I also learned Daoyin (Chinese Yoga) and calligraphy from my grandfather who was a well known local scholar and graduated in the first cohort of Henan University in my home town of Kaifeng Henan.
After becoming registered to perform acupuncture with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture Professionals of Ontario (CTCMPAO), I am happy to carry on these traditions in my new home of Toronto.
My approach to acupuncture treatment is not only to use needles, but also to get to know you as the complete person you are.
This guides me to selecting the treatment best for your unique situation.
This may include using acupuncture needles, cupping and scraping therapies, Tui Na Massage and Acupressure, dietary consultation, and life coaching.
I am also experienced in Chinese teas and their uses in promoting wellness, so I’m looking forward to sharing this great information with you.
Putting patients first is the strength of Chinese Medicine and I work very hard to understand your unique health situation in order to provide a treatment specific to you.
I am very happy to have the chance to help so many people find their best health and look forward to seeing you soon at our clinic!
Registered Acupuncturist, Qigong and Meditation Teacher:
Author of: Internal Elixir Cultivation the Nature of Daoist Meditation.
Robert Coons is a registered acupuncturist, educator, and well known expert on Daoist Meditation who while not working in clinic can be found teaching classes and seminars at Chinese Medicine Colleges in Canada and Europe.
Because of his experience in the study of “energy arts” such as Qigong and Meditation he has rare knowledge of the science of Qi, its physiology, and the treatment of the pathologies underlying chronic illness.
Robert believes that we are not just healthy or sick, but that there is an entire range of sub-health issues that lead to illness.
As a result his clinical practice focuses on the concept “it is better to drill a well before becoming thirsty.” and focuses not only on pain relief but also prevention.
Treatments with Robert may include:
- Tui Na Massage and Gua Sha (scraping),
- Qigong energy healing (similar to Reiki and Healing Hands),
- Wu’s Head Massage,
- Spiritual life coaching,
In all of this, special attention is given to assist patients in going through the stages of learning to live with illness, beginning to see improvements, making clear progress, and returning to vitality.
Having used Chinese Medicine and Meditation to heal his own health problems, Robert knows the power of these methods of healing and seeks to share what he knows with others with kindness and compassion.
Robert has won multiple awards including being two time winner of the Aged and Baked Oolong category at the North American Tea Championships and the First Place Winner of the 2022 Chinese Medicine Poetry Championships held by Yunnan University of Chinese Medicine in Yunnan China.
He is also an industry leader contributing his translation skills to the development of advanced level courses in Chinese Medicine for the Doctor of TCM program at the Ontario College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Markham.
He has also lectured and taught at the Qing Bai institute, Holland’s largest Chinese Medicine College, the Institute of Traditional Medicine in Toronto, and various private Qigong clubs around the world.
