Al and Malka Green Artists’ Health Centre: « a health haven for all types of artists » (Toronto)
On a recent visit to the Al and Malka Green Artists’ Health Centre, Shiatsu Therapist Leisa Bellmore, gave me a tour of the calming and inviting space, complete with original artwork. My tour included the Acoustic Studio, Movement Assessment Studio, and a massage therapy room. Located in Toronto Western Hospital, the centre is a health haven for all types of artists from dancers to painters. Their aim to help artists to keep creating their art, is fulfilled by forging connections for artists with teams of healthcare providers.
