Hi there! My name is Teressa Canosa and I’m a citizen of the world; I've lived in many countries and am passionate about natural and traditional healing techniques.
My journey into Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) started when I was 18. I had been dealing with chronic urinary tract infections (oh, the joy!) and round after round of antibiotics. Though I was initially hesitant to try out acupuncture - in other words, terrified of needles - a close friend eventually convinced me to book a treatment. It wasn't as bad as I had imagined. It wasn't bad at all, actually. I felt really relaxed and the experience was unlike anything I had ever tried before.
Low and behold, after just a couple of months of treatment, the issues I had been battling with for years were resolved. Needless to say, I was intrigued. I thought, "wow, by just stimulating a few points on our bodies we can heal and transform our health, without prescription drugs or surgery – how wild is that?"
As time went on, and the more proof I saw that TCM worked – for example, with my stepmom, who was able to avoid shoulder surgery after 3 months of acupuncture – the more interested I became in Chinese medicine. Ten years after that first treatment, while living in Madrid, Spain I took the leap and enrolled in acupuncture school. The rest, as they say, is history. I went on to open an acupuncture clinic in Lecce, Italy, where I still regularly treat clients, while also operating in The Hague, in the Netherlands.
I’m now on a mission to share Chinese Medicine with the world and empower people to take their health into their own hands. Our bodies are so much more powerful than we realize! Sometimes, a little "help" - adjusting our lifestyle with things like acupuncture, dietary changes and exercise - is all that's needed for our bodies to heal.
I'm here to help you live with a Joyful Heart and experience maximum wellness - physically, mentally and emotionally - by deciphering your body's messages to engage in a deeper relationship with your body and restore health and harmony.
I'm here for you every step of the journey, and look forward to you becoming your happiest, healthiest self.
