My name is Olena Shtepura, I am an Acupuncturist and I infinitely love what I do. I am working in the Traditional Chinese Medicine field for more than 5 years and had practice Acupuncture last 2 years in the TSTCM clinic and Dorothy Lea Hospice.
My unique combination of skills and knowledge in different Eastern practices, such as Acupuncture, TCM Diet, Qi Gong, Feng Shui and Chinese Astrology Bazi makes my approach wholistic and complement your treatment to help you recover from the inner and outer side quickly and effectively.
I am a Registered Classical Homeopath, helping individuals and families find the right combination of holistic modalities like Homeopathy, Schussler Salts, Bach and Australian Bush Flower Essences, that offer them true-to-you healing.
I graduated from the Canadian College of Homeopathic Medicine program and also obtained my Homeopathic Post Graduate Certificate with CCHM.
My passion to help others has led me to join different volunteering groups such as Migrant Workers in the Niagara region supporting them with translation services and homeopathy as well as helping at the free Homeopathic Clinic for Klicks Africa Foundation in Ghana supporting children with intellectual disability and ASD.
My goal is to educate family, friends, and other healthcare practitioners in the Hispanic community about the benefits of Homeopathy. With this in mind, I developed educational resources for First Aid and Acute care that are available online.
I also coordinate with other practitioners such as Homeopaths, Naturopaths, Osteopaths, Acupuncturists, Physiotherapists and Medical Doctors to enhance the best optimal care and well-being of all the patients.
When I am not practicing homeopathy or learning from Dr. John Miller, Rajan Sankaran, Dr. Shahram Ayoubzadeh, George Vithoulkas and Karen Allen, you can find me exploring my other interests like Qigong, meditation, and acupuncture.

Whether you are looking for insight and healing around a specific issue or have come to
a moment where it feels right or necessary to examine your relationship to the life you
are leading; therapy is an excellent tool. Relational therapy works with the old patterns
and dynamics that have created the scaffolding we carry with us into our current lives
and relationships. Together, client and therapist work to explore the ‘hows’ and ‘whys’
and in doing so create space for new ways of being in relationship, both with ourselves
and with others.
I am a therapist-in-training under supervision at Toronto Institute of Relational
Psychotherapy (TIRP) and a student member of the Ontario Society of Registered

I believe that every individual has a right to live in a place of vivacious agency, where your desires and needs are allowed to be actualized. You have a right to feel the safety and internal nourishment offered in your own body and to feel supported by your relationships as you navigate through life.
I support individuals through embodied approaches to psychotherapy centered in somatics and dance/movement therapy. In talk therapy, words are used as the primary material to "unpack" the emotional aspects of a person's experience. I use both words as well as connection to sensory, emotional, and creative explorations to support the goals you are working towards.
I am trained as Dance Movement Therapist (DMT) through the National Centre for Dance Therapy, Montreal. I am practicing as a pre-licenced psychotherapist (under supervision) and have completed advanced training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. I bridge expressive arts, somatics and neurobiology treatment of trauma within my practice.
I look forward to working with you today. Book a consult at somatichealing.ca
