With acupuncture, chinese herbs, massage, functional movement therapy, reflexology, reiki and nutrition, we effectively treat patients with health problems throughout the whole body.
We partner with our patients to help them make choices that will unleash their bodies’ ability to heal itself. The Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) we practice at the Wellness Centre is complimentary to western medicine.
The body is more than a sum of parts. Health involves the body, mind, and soul. Energy flows where intent goes; an ongoing commitment to your wellness can restore balance to your life.
We are so excited to open our door and invite you into our world of Self-care driven Health Care. We are a strongly community oriented centre and love to teach our clients/ patients what they can do to get and stay healthy.
Situated right beside The Light Cellar in downtown Bowness, we are a heart-centered business and our mantra is "Be Kind. Listen. Have Compassion."
Drop-ins for community acupuncture are welcome.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) understands the human body with meridians, connections between organs, muscles, nerves, and other systems. TCM is based on knowledge gained and practices refined over thousands of years in China.
We are intrigued by how patients respond quickly and effectively to treatments of acupuncture, and also Chinese herbs. We have successfully treated patients with health problems throughout the whole body: cancer care and support, anxiety, shingles, stress, bells palsy, phantom pain syndrome, digestive problems (IBS), musculoskeletal pain, migraines, sinus infections and more.
Foundational movement therapy is a way of identifying and correcting faulty movement patterns and dysfunction, which we now know are the main causes of pain and injury.
A high proportion of the injuries we treat have their origins in faulty movement patterns. We are big believers in injury prevention; you have to first learn how to move correctly.
We focus on mobility, stability and motor control.
Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. The naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the healing power of the body and treat the underlying cause of disease. Symptoms of disease are seen as warning signals of improper functioning of the body, and unfavourable lifestyle habits. Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than as an entity.
Reflexology is a natural, holistic, healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the hands, feet and ears that correspond to every gland, organ and part of the body.
Through application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation, and helps your body to restore itself to a healthy balance. Reflexology provides some measure of benefit to all and can be part of a preventative health care regimen.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.
Nutrition is the sum total of the processes involved in the taking in and the utilization of food substances by which growth, repair and maintenance of the body are accomplished. It involves ingestion, digestion, absorption and assimilation. Nutrients are stored by the body in various forms and drawn upon when the food intake is not sufficient.

It is very important to me that our health professional listens and takes the time to evaluate rather than just medicate.
