Adrien is currently working on opening an Apitherapy clinic in Toronto.

The Traditional Chinese Medicine concept of QI can be translated as “Inter-Relationship”. Health can be defined as our relationship to ourselves, others and our environment. The Bee is Nature’s perfect example of this, as she flies from flower to flower spreading pollen, creating more life... As I collect bee pollen in the evenings, I notice new colors of pollen in the traps, leading me to notice the new flowers blooming in my environment. This is how my connection to nature is strengthened thanks to the bees, helping me to better understand the interrelationships of the QI principle.
