"Love and justice are not two. Without inner change, there can be no outer change; without collective change, no change matters." ~ angel Kyodo williams
Emma Lui is passionate about health and sees personal health, the health of communities and the health of the planet as interconnected.
In her process of healing from food sensitivities, burnout and (intergenerational) trauma, Emma has long practiced yoga and meditation as well as returning to her roots exploring Traditional Chinese Medicine and ancestral healing. She finds Craniosacral Therapy and ThetaHealing deeply restorative and has completed training for Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (Level 2) and ThetaHealing® (Advanced). Emma loves using these modalities to support others in their healing process. As an empath, these come naturally to her as she has always been attuned to other people’s emotions and well-being.
Emma provides care with an awareness of the crises we face today including climate and water crises, racism, gender inequity and income inequality and how they can impact our well-being. The consumerist, capitalist economic system is not only wearing on our planet, but also wearing on our health and communities.
Emma is also studying holistic nutrition. Her belief that food is medicine is rooted in her Cantonese culture. Emma is also a writer and water and social justice activist. She is passionate about water because of its beauty, power and ability to nourish, heal and sustain life. She has been supporting grassroots communities to promote water justice, Indigenous rights and other social justice issues for nine years.
In her practice, Emma celebrates the diversity of humans in size, race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation and dis/ability. She practices in Ottawa and near Wakefield, which are on the traditional, unceded territories of the Algonquin nation.
