About Tendingshen

The precursor to TendingShen was born in Lampeter, Dyfed, Wales in 1982 as the Sunrise Natural Healing Clinic. When Niki H. Bilton returned home to Canada in 1999, she set up Le Brel Enterprises Inc., named after a beloved home in France. Le Brel was incorporated as an Ontario Education & Health Care Provider, offering both clinical services and continuing professional development events. Initially based in Windsor, and with the addition of Julie Lawson, it re-located to Ridgeway, Ontario in June 2006. The company changed its name to TendingShen Inc. in September 2007.

TendingShen Corporation is the US subsidiary of TendingShen Inc, based in Maryland since 2002 and now also operating in Buffalo, New York since 2007.

TendingShen regularly runs continuing education workshops and clinical events for acupuncturists and other complementary or allopathic health care practitioners in Canada (Ontario), in the US (primarily California, Maryland and New York) and in Europe (including various UK locations). 

TendingShen offers consultations and treatments in Five Element acupuncture in its teaching clinics in Fort Erie, St. Catharines and Toronto Ontario, in Westminster, MD and in Buffalo, NY. Niki sees patients for regular treatments and also offers consultations at CTA, Warwickshire, UK.

TendingShen offers treatments and practitioner trainings in Rejuvanessence at various North American locations.

TendingShen is a Founder Sponsor of Ongiara College of Acupuncture and Moxibustion, which opened its doors to Canadian, American and International students in September 2009, offering a four academic year Professional Diploma program in Acupuncture and Moxibustion.
