Tatiana has treated people of all ages: infants, toddlers, youths, teenagers, adults and seniors. She has experience working in health care centres, physiotherapy clinics, salons and spas. Earlier in her career, she worked as a therapeutic ultrasound technician, diagnostic electrodes acupuncturist, bio laser technician, and Ayurvedic spa technician.

Beyond her commitment to continuously expand her skill set and qualifications, Tatiana enjoys balancing her professional life with the health benefits of meditation, yoga and folk dancing.
