In Dec 2003, Pat took her first Tong Ren Therapy training with Tom Tam and has pursued self directed studies in anatomy and physiology of the human body, continued her training with Tom Tam in Boston and Nanaimo, and treated many clients both in her studio and at a distance over the telephone ever since. In the spirit of the Tong Ren community, Pat has been offering free Tong Ren GP Healing sessions in the Nanaimo area since 2004. Recent Tui Na workshops were held in Edmonton/Two Hills, Alberta in April 2010, Nanaimo, BC in May 2010, Bellevue, WA in August 2010 and Nanaimo, BC in September 2010.
