  • After September 1, 2022 Queens Park Massage Therapy has decided to make mask wearing recommended instead of required. It will be up to the therapist and patient to decide whether mask wearing should take place during their appointment.

Musculoskeletal pain, migraines, anxiety, sleep disorders, gynecological issues and other physical and mental ailments can take away your strength and joy. By combining Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and energy healing, Gary Chan allows you to strip away the power of illnesses so you can recover, rejuvenate, and restore balance to your body and mind.

Gary is a top-rated holistic health expert with over 16 years of experience. He graduated from the International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine of Vancouver and is licensed by the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of British Columbia (CTCMA).

After gaining his diploma in 2006, Gary interned at a hospital in China and a private clinic in Hong Kong. He is the author behind “Living a Happy Life in an Unhappy World”, a mental wellness book showcasing the benefits of Chinese medicine. Dr Tan’s Balance Method, Pulse Regulating Acupuncture, Original Yin Stretching Method, Auricular Medicines, Reiki Energy Healing, and Transformation with Matrix Energetic are just some of the other therapies he is certified in.

Before entering the healthcare realm, Gary worked as a computer programmer. He had no experience with TCM until he developed severe pain in one of his upper teeth. His dentist said the pain was caused by an inflamed nerve and that a root canal would solve the problem. Gary decided to think about it as this extreme procedure would cause much discomfort and cost a fortune. He left the dentist and went to the pharmacy to pick up some painkillers. During his visit, the pharmacist on duty told Gary to try acupuncture.

Gary thought he had nothing to lose and went to see an acupuncturist right away. The day after his first treatment, he was shocked to experience an 80 per cent decrease in pain. After taking an herbal concoction for another day, Gary was completely relieved of his toothache. This transformative experience sparked Gary’s interest in acupuncture and eventually led him to pursue a career in holistic health.

Besides TCM, Gary is passionate about spirituality and believes building meaningful relationships is key to living a fulfilling life. During his free time, he enjoys playing board games and disc golf with friends and family. He also loves hanging out with this cat.

Gary is fluent in English, Cantonese, and Mandarin.
