Magda Leszczynska has over 10 years of clinical experience combining Eastern and Western, and Traditional and Modern philosophies of health and healing.
She believes that there is never just one way of working with clients.
While dealing with her own health issues she found great benefits from an integrative approach to medicine. In particular, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Acupuncture and herbs, Shiatsu, Massage Therapy, Cranio-Sacral Treatments and Clinical Hypnotherapy.
To understand how all of these modalities work and what they do, she has studied them extensively and brings them to her practice with clients.
Her belief is that healing involves conscious living and that taking responsibility for personal growth and health is our privilege.
Education and Clinical experience
Magda Leszczynska is a Registered Acupuncturist (R.Ac) and Registered Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner (R.TCMP). She is also a Registered Massage Therapist.
In addition, she is a student of CranioSacral and SomatoEmotional Therapies, and has a spiritual doctorate in Divinity.
The aspect of energy or Qi (including emotions) as a source of disease and healing was always fascinating to her.
She has studied Inca Shamanism under the patronage of Dr. Alberto Villoldo of The Four Winds Society and knows that the process to understanding ancient wisdom comes with a long journey of self-healing. She continues to pursue this journey.
In order to properly treat their patients, in ancient China, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Doctors diagnosed not only the physical body for physical blockages that create pain and discomfort, but the Spirit and Psyche.
According to TCM, the Spirit, known in the Western World as Mind, lives in blood, and the Psyche, according to TCM is a Spirit that lives and is different in each vital organ. These Spirits can be understood as personality types in modern psychology.
By addressing and diagnosing the body, mind and spirit it is possible to offer deeper healing on the physical level and to prevent the mind from having a negative influence on our DNA.

When not at work Magda loves simple things that give her joy. Kayaking and enjoying nature are her favorites, but also spending time in the kitchen, watching good movies and good company with a good glass of wine are always enjoyable.
