Spiritual Guide, Tarot Reader
At a very early age, Amparo realized that she had been blessed with a special gift. After going through various spiritually transformative experiences, she realized she had the innate ability to perceive and experience energy in a highly intuitive way. With time, practice and experience, she learned to not only embrace, but also to share her gift with those in search of spiritual guidance.
Directed by her intuition, Amparo uses the tarot and Spanish cards as a tool to interpret the message presented by her client's energy and conveying this message to them.
With a lifetime of experience, Amparo is a seasoned cartomancer who began offering private consultations in her native Colombia.
She has been offering her Tarot readings services in Montreal for almost thirty years and has earned the trust of loyal clients, many of whom have been seeking her spiritual guidance for just as long.
Her clients are always pleasantly surprised by the accuracy of her readings as well as grateful for her wisdom and appreciate her candidness and authenticity.

Osteopath, Acupressure Therapist
Since her early childhood, Adeline knew that she would dedicate herself to manual therapy, but it was only after high school that she decided on osteopathy. Having an all-encompassing view of the human body seemed coherent and promising to her.
After graduating, she dedicated herself to osteopathy for 5 years before feeling the need to broaden her knowledge. She then began a program in Acupressure and Traditional Chinese Medicine in order to expand her understanding of the human being in its physical, emotional and energetic oneness. This curriculum allowed her to get closer to her vocation and provided her with a substantial background. She received her second diploma at the end of 2019.
Adeline takes the time to help her clients understand and listen to their bodies, as well as improve their life habits. Her clients say that the precision of her touch, her intuition and her capacity to listen are the reasons for the benefits that they receive.

A session with Kelsey in Acupuncture will include a deep dive into your medical history and a discussion of lifestyle and other factors as they pertain to the condition for which you are seeking treatment. The treatment itself will normally include the insertion of 5 to 15 fine needles into specific ‘acupoints’, which will remain in the body for about 30 minutes in a peaceful, restorative space (during which time, you are invited to nap or meditate).
A naturopathic session will also include an in-depth discussion about your health status, and your goals for your well-being. We will then focus on nutrition according to your unique needs and tendencies. When beneficial, Kelsey will also suggest a custom herbal preparation such as a tincture, herbal tea, pills or powdered formula). A reflexology treatment is included in each naturopathic session.
A reflexology session aims to relax the body through an acupressure massage on the feet, which represent a "microsystem" of the whole body.
Fascinated by traditional philosophies of medicine and their regard for the body as a dynamic and intelligent ecosystem, Kelsey continues her professional development through ongoing training and self-directed study. She spends her free time volunteering as a doula with the Montreal Doula Collective, and watching birds while walking on Mount Royal. She is fluent in French, English, Spanish and Portuguese.
After a career in the Beauty industry, I ended up in the corporate world, living a very busy and fast-paced life.
In 2019 a series of traumatic events during which I lost my home to a fire, left my body, mind and life shattered.
I left Canada to go find peace, reset my mind and realign my life. I was looking for the meaning in all these events and natural ways to heal myself.
What was the Universe trying to tell me?
Through the fire and tragedy, I found I was liberated; I was reborn free and rising again a new human, finding my true path in life. During my trips I discovered Full-Consciousness, Meditation and Sound Healing.
I started practicing Yoga, rekindled with Nature and Spirituality, learned to live with balance, patience and practice Deep Listening ❤

Juan is very interested in the relationship between sustainability and health as a result of witnessing homeopathy as a trustworthy ecological medicine with the profound capacity to heal human suffering.
