Angela Xiao Chun Fu is the clinical director for Total Wellness Centre. Angela's husband,
Jonah Arnold, is the administrative and public relations consultant to Total Wellness Centre.
In 2001, after learning that she had a serious illness which required two surgeries and multiple radiation treatments, Angela returned to her family roots by seeking out a traditional Chinese medical doctor for collaborative treatments. In 2006, after receiving acupuncture and herbal treatments, Angela successfully conceived. In 2007, her first son was born. Angela's second son was born in May 2009. Angela is not only the director, but a patient of Total Wellness Centre, receiving weekly acupuncture treatments.
After successfully healing and re-balancing her life, Angela learned that others in her community were not aware that such beneficial collaborative treatments existed. Since 2004, Angela has made it her mission to bring the healing medical techniques of TCM to Toronto and the GTA.
Angela's family developed the Fu style Bagua (Fu Zhensong (mixed style), see General geographical distribution of Baguazhang styles in China and Fu Style Baguazhang), Tai Chi and other internal 'Kung Fu' martial arts. As a sixth generation internal martial artist, she understands Eastern philosophy and medicine. Angela is now teaching the seventh generation, her sons, to live the lifestyle associated with traditional Chinese medicine; a balanced life including a good diet, exercise, good education, support of friends and family, and of course Tai Chi.
In ancient times, those that practiced martial arts in China learned, out of necessity, techniques to heal quickly and heal completely. Going to battle, or defending one's village was not possible if wounds, illness, malnutrition or other problems constantly plagued the protectors. Out of this need, practitioners of Kung Fu, particularly Tai Chi and Bagua, learned to practice traditional Chinese medicine in addition to their martial art.
In more modern times, those that practice martial arts as a way of life have continued to integrate facets of traditional Chinese medicine into their lives. Healing from injury, the common cold or flu for example, and maintaining optimal health will always be relevant to those that practice martial arts, as well as the general public.
Angela believes teaching is a very important part of martial arts and TCM. Taught from a very young age by her family, she knows there is a duty among martial artists to teach the members of the community how to achieve optimal health and live as well as you can. She believes you are only as healthy as your fellow villagers. Angela's experiences and beliefs have harmoniously joined to help shape Total Wellness Centre.
Angela is always available to assist patients with administrative or other concerns. Please feel free to email or call her anytime.

Acupuncture has been part of healthcare for millions of people over thousands of years. More recently modern scientific standards have been applied to assessing the effectiveness of acupuncture. After considerable research, the Nation Institutes of Health (NIH) and The World Health Organization (WHO) agree acupuncture is an effective treatment for many illnesses.
I have the privilege of working with Canada's top Chinese Practitioners.
