Massage, Acupuncture, Cupping & Hot Stone Therapy


Your body...

... wants to heal itself.

Feeling fatigued or having trouble focusing? Do you have chronic pain? Traditional Chinese Medicine, massage, acupuncture, cupping therapy, and hot stone massage may be the solutions you are looking for.

Our body is amazingly resourceful, constantly renewing itself. Sometimes however, signals get crossed. External factors can tax your body, pushing it into defense mode, often without you even realizing. Internal factors, such as stress, have proven to be significant contributors to most health issues. Reducing stress, be it physical or mental, should be one of the first steps in restoring health and helping us to feel more energized. Acupuncture modality taps in to those natural resources of the body, supporting the healing process helping to bring us back into balance.

For over 3,000 years, the Chinese have maintained their health through healing hands guided by Traditional Chinese Medicine. Ancient knowledge of massage, acupuncture, cupping, hot stone therapy, and more have been passed down from generation to generation, keeping people healthy and active well into their twilight years. Thankfully, this knowledge has not been lost to time. Today, British Columbian practitioners are professionally trained and registered, working to the highest standards. Keeping with tradition, these ancient arts have been cited as extremely helpful as a preventative method for staving off natural or environmental ailments ranging from age-related maladies to the toxic effects of years of stress. While Western medicine focuses on targeted areas, the holistic approach of TCM allows for the body to be treated as a whole and as such, your practitioner will likely ask you many questions as to what ails you. The more you describe your complete physical state, the better a practitioner will be able to work toward solving those issues together, rather than treating them as individual, unrelated ailments. TCM is not necessarily a replacement for modern medicine, but serves as a complimentary approach to bolster the body's natural ability to heal itself.


Deep tissue massage has been proven to ease muscle strain, breakup scar tissue, and increase blood flow. Increased blood flow revitalizes our bodies with increased oxygen and aids the body's ability to flush expired cells.

Hot Stone Therapy

Increase circulation and relax stiff muscles with Hot Stone Therapy. We use heated, smooth stones to help release stress and built up tension in the fascia and tissues. The heat feels divine and helps relax the muscle at a very deep level.


Acupuncture is a key aspect of TCM. Our bodies are an interconnected network of systems. Sometimes, due to the stress of our daily lives, these networks get jammed up. Practitioners use acupuncture to target specific trigger points in your body, telling the body to focus on a specific area. By using multiple acupuncture points in conjunction, we can encourage the body to activate its natural healing ability.

Cupping Therapy

Cupping is one of the key aspects of TCM modality. It uses suction derived from glass cups to act as a reverse - pressure release. It is used in TCM to combat blood stasis, unblocking the collaterals and increasing blood flow and circulation to the areas of tension.

Ilana Moon

Ilana Moon has been doing holistic massage and bodywork since 2002, having been certified through the Art of Conscious Touch Bodywork. This was a stepping stone to learning many modalities incorporating it all into her unique signature style of combining massage and acupuncture at the same time.

She incorporates techniques from many styles including Rolfing, Hellerwork, Shiatsu, Acupressure, Tuina, Trigger point therapy, Sports massage, Active Isolated Stretching (AIS), Thai massage, energy work, and hot stone.

Using the foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ilana can address both internal medicine disorders through acupuncture while doing full body massage at the same time. Acupuncture is one way of releasing muscle tension, similar to the style of IMS (intermuscular stimulation), and then following with massage to further work out the stuck muscle. She uses acupuncture as a tool to supplement the body's natural ability to heal itself. She uses orthopedic assessment testing to confirm your body's ailments and misalignments. Ilana is your wellness partner, offering advice on dietary, lifestyle, and stretching techniques.
