Filomena Porter, RMT

I began developing and expanding my general interest in wellness based practices approximately nine years ago when I became an RMT. I have expanded my scope of practice over that period of time and have acquired skills in such diverse areas such as Sports Injury, Fascial techniques, Contemporary/Medical Acupuncture for musculoskeletal issues and pre & post natal massage. 

As a core practice, with a greater appreciation of the mind-body-spirit connection, I have begun to include what I have learned through my education at OCTCM. This includes incorporating a variety of TCM modalities to treat systemic and local maladies. The TCM modalities include cupping, acupuncture, Moxibustion or heat therapy, Guasha and Tuina. I also include allied practices such as yin yoga and Pilates as part of a holistic approach to wellness that encompasses the intertwining of all of the specific techniques and practices referenced above with the goal of enhancing a philosophy and practice of client-centred wellness.
