Our Story: Holistic wellness and METAbodyWORKS

Meta : "beyond, or a sense of beyond";
Bodywork : "therapeutic touch or manipulation of the body using specialized techniques" -Merriam-Webster

Meta-Bodyworks goes beyond body. Holistic Wellness penetrates the mind-body connection using Eastern medicine and body works. We go beyond the physical and integrate the emotions to empower your Spirit.

METAbodyWORKS was founded in 2013 by Frank Carone, with the intention to bridge the gap between Western and Eastern Medicine, and by providing accessibility to Asian healing Arts to everyone, regardless of belief, race, gender or finances.

His vision of the Canadian Healthcare System is more alternative centered and accessible by integrating knowledge of our mind-body, therapeutic bodywork, meditation and mindful movement.

Imagine the impact this would have on all of us...

This would reduce wait times, reduce cancer, obesity, hospital visits, you name it; our society would work and live with more meaning- full of purpose.

In today's modern world,  we have forgotten our authentic self and the importance of our Mind-Body Connection. We've separated our mind from our heart because we differentiate our brains between left and right hemispheres. In Asian Healing Traditions, the mind, body and heart are interconnected through energy.

Alternative and Complementary therapies are still inaccessible for many people, or their access to some of these therapies do not address the underlying issues and many of these therapies offer band aid solutions. Asian healing goes beyond and acknowledges the connection between emotions and pain.



Healing is 'changing the whole'.
