Adam's clinical experience began on Salt Spring by providing house-calls for his patients. In May of 2015, Adam co-founded Salt Spring's first Community Acupuncture clinic at the Salt Spring Island Wellness Centre. Inspired by ancient wisdom and the healing potential of Traditional Medicine, Adam founded KokoroCare in 2019 to continue his goal to provide effective, affordable natural healing solutions to his community.
After completing a 4 year Masters of TCM program from Yo San University in Los Angeles, Adam has settled nicely into Salt Spring's embrace. When Adam is not treating patients, you'll likely find him tending his garden, growing food, or speaking passionately about health & wellness. He also finds refuge and solace in simply contemplating the beautiful interconnectedness of all things in this universe.

Sydney has developed a style of relaxation massage that incorporates deep tissue, sports massage, and therapeutic techniques. Being a musician most of his life, Sydney has a rhythmic approach to his massages. He believes the body’s nervous system responds well to rhythm and likes to find a proper, soothing treatment tempo for each patient's healing.
Whether from an acute injury, repetitive movement, or poor posture that one may not be aware of, Sydney's work helps to restructure and align the body. His therapeutic goal is to help you work on exercises and lifestyle changes that will prevent the symptoms from recurring. From Sydney's experience, determining the root of one's complaint and reestablishing one's bodily awareness is vital for achieving and maintaining good health.
Sydney has also served as an instructor at Vancouver College of Massage Therapy from 2013-2017 and has studied Japanese Jikiden Reiki, as well as Craniosacral Therapy techniques.
When Sydney's not practicing, he spends most of his time playing with sound and in nature. He enjoys rehearsing with a local swing band, songwriting his own music and exploring the vibrations around Salt Spring and Vancouver Island. He is also an aspiring writer of philosophy and sci-fi fantasy stories.
