Christina Lamont, LBA, RH, BSc
Christina Lamont, LBA, RH, BScLive Blood Microscopy Analyst
Christina studied Life Science at University of Toronto, then went on to earn a Naturopathic degree in London, England; a Bachelor’s Degree of Complimentary Medicine; and a diploma of Herbal Medicine. She has always had a keen interest in how the body works and the complex nature of disease. This was brought into focus when she suffered her own health struggles with an autoimmune disease and inflammatory bowel disorder. In 2007, Christina completed training to become a Colon Hydrotherapist and this opened a whole new world of Functional Medicine. Since then she has focused on searching for root causes, rather than merely treating symptoms.

In 2018, Christina joined Shannon at Microcell Sciences to focus more on the microbiology of disease and how it circulates through every part of our body via the blood, starting her on a fascinating journey.

Through Christina’s work, she has developed an intimate knowledge and understanding of the body and more specifically the blood, continuing to learn as science provides more and more pieces of the puzzle. Through the complex and often very ill individuals she meets, Christina is constantly reminded of how intelligent the body is and the importance of ‘Preventative Medicine’.

Christina feels blessed to have become part of an amazing group of practitioners, who have allowed her to optimize her own health and continually provide an opportunity to expand knowledge of health as a functional and dynamic entity.

Annie Zhu, Intuitive Healing
Annie Zhu, Intuitive HealingThetaHealer
Annie Zhu is a certified ThetaHealing® and The Top People Technique® practitioner. She has also studied Kabbalah, an ancient spiritual wisdom, for over ten years through the teacher-student lineage. After being connected to a talented ThetaHealer in New York through her spiritual community, she experienced first hand how fast and effective ThetaHealing works in releasing her own emotional traumas, resentments, chronic physical pain, and negative belief systems.

She is also certified in The Top People Technique from energy master Abril Abundes in Mexico. Annie has been fortunate enough to be in Abril’s first wave of classes for English speakers and now practices The Top People Technique at an advanced level.

Annie’s sessions will use a combination of ThetaHealing and Top People. For those experiencing challenges, stress, fears, or pain but don’t know why, intuitive healing uncovers the source of the issue and releases it at the root level so it won’t return.

Imagine your soul as a ball of pure white light. Now imagine all that trauma, stress, anger, etc. as dark veils covering that light. Annie’s job as an intuitive healer is to peel away those layers until your light shines bright again and you are connected to your true self.
