Born in Hong Kong and having grown up with various alternative healing modalities, Benevolent Bodywork owner, Jackson “Sunshine” Tse (he/she/they), has always been fascinated with holistic forms of healing.
Since 2005, he has self-funded travel to 35 countries around the world, learning holistic healing techniques, including Reiki and massage, from masters in China, India, Bali, Thailand, Burma, Cambodia, Vietnam, California, and most recently, right here in Vancouver.
In addition to his international training, Jackson has attended accredited educational institutions to offer massage and energy healing services, including the International School of Temple Arts and the Vancouver School of Healing Arts (formerly Vancouver School of Bodywork and Massage).
Jackson identifies as a queer, non-binary, 1.5 generation immigrant-settler of colour, and has a heart for people on the margins of society.
As a sexual assault survivor, he understands the importance of creating a safe space for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning folks. Empathizing with how rare it is for this demographic to feel safe in a bodywork space, he offers a 10% discount to all clients identifying as LGBTQ+.
In addition to this work, Jackson is also an award-winning multidisciplinary artist, a MEC Outdoor Nation Ambassador, and enjoys facilitating and consulting for social justice and environmental causes.
