Peaceful Water Health & Fitness is operated by Kevin Juliano and Zoe Huang. We provide health care based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, fitness training based on the traditional martial arts, and cultural enrichment that promotes calmness and relaxation.
At 1914 Colvin, we want to create a multi-purpose space that is comfortable, peaceful and versatile. We are planning a "relaxation suite" consisting of a sauna and a cold water dousing station in the future!

In January of 2004, Kevin enrolled at the Toronto School of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and has been practising and studying ever since. The same year, Kevin started studying Taijiquan with Paul McCaughey and Jan Ohm at the Rising Sun School of T'ai Chi Ch'uan in Toronto ON, where he met Zoe Huang.

Zoe Huang was born in Taipei, Taiwan and immigrated to Toronto, Canada with her family in 1994. She has always been interested in the visual arts and performing arts. She earned a B.A. and a M.A. in Drama from the University of Toronto, while maintaining her focus on visual design by designing promotional materials for theatre companies and productions, as well as drawing and writing graphic novels. Even though she grew up in Chinese culture and always felt an affinity towards Daoist philosophy, she actually came to the study of taijiquan through the recommendation of a theatre director. She studied under Pual McCaughey and Jan Ohm at the Rising Sun School of T'ai Chi Ch'uan, where she met Kevin Juliano.
