Yuki (Yama) Yamasaki

R.Ac, R.H.N

Yama is a registered Acupuncturist under the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (CTCMPAO), as well as has been practicing as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist since 2009.

Yama was introduced to the power of traditional eastern medicine about 15 years ago when she was experiencing chronic health issues that western medical tests couldn’t explain.  However, a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner was able to diagnose and clearly explain what was happening inside of her by simply listening to her, as well as observing and checking her pulse and tongue!

She was so grateful to have answers and hope on her journey to health.  Yama was so inspired by this experience that she wanted to know more about this amazing eastern knowledge system and became a licensed Acupuncturist.

Her vision is to raise awareness about the effectiveness of traditional eastern wisdom in supporting health, while also supporting individuals to take responsibility for their own health and wellness.

Yama has 2 core ideas that guide her practice:

“We are designed to heal ourselves.”

Yama, working with the natural intelligence of the body, focuses on delivering patient- centered healthcare that meets individuals where they are to support them working towards their health goals and improve their quality of life “We are what we digest.”

Everything you eat is important, but also needs to be properly digested to nourish your body, mind and skin. Yama uses techniques and nutritional guidance in her treatments to support digestion, while also encouraging people to eat seasonally, locally and mindfully with joy and appreciation to encourage overall health.
