May is determined to help her patients move stronger and move longer, always striving to improve her skills. She believes in life-long learning and that one can always acquire more knowledge. Her post graduate training includes advanced manual therapy and manipulation, IMS, Pilates rehabilitation, acupuncture, craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation and neural manipulation. For the past 5 years, she has been heavily involved in the study of osteopathy through the Barral Institute and Upledger Institute and enjoys traveling throughout North America for her courses. This forms an integrated, whole body approach with profound effects on releasing body tensions and restrictions which then resolve symptoms. She is a qualified teaching assistant for both of these institutes.
In addition to providing care at Cedar, May also works at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Royal Columbian Hospital and enjoys the privilege of cradling and providing specialized care for the little souls who are frightened and have to be separated from their parents at birth.
Dancing is a passion for May before her family came along. She was a ballet dancer and a competitive ballroom dancer. She understands the physical, mental and psychological demands of a dancer and strives to combine her professional and personal experience in getting her dancers dancing longer and dancing stronger in their capacity.
In her spare time, May enjoys spending time with her family, skiing and biking in the summer. She is also conscientious about her health and fitness as you will find her exercising on the Pilates and Gyrotonic equipment on a regular basis. She is fluent in Cantonese and conversational Mandarin.
