" A tree can only be as strong as the forest that surrounds it"
- Peter Wohlleben
Forests have evolved to live in cooperatively and in interdependent relationships. Each tree's wellbeing depends on their community, the degree of connection & sharing of resources.
Not unlike trees, our wellbeing is impacted by the community we are surrounded by. Healing & growth occur when we can lean on others, engage in mutual support, share resources and challenges, repair old wounds, and move towards expansion.

Benefits of Group
Each of our groups provide a unique opportunity to expand. Here at the Collective Healing Centre, we offer a unique multidisciplinary approach to groups, where you explore the intersection of physical and mental health with our practitioners' expertise.
During each group session, your supports at the Collective Healing Centre create a positive peer environment, where each individual's growth is amplifying by the energy of others looking to expand their roots.
Some examples of our collaborative groups include: acupuncture and psychotherapy for stress management, yoga and massage for anxiety, and yoga and psychotherapy for mental health!
