Why choose Nanaimo Acupuncture?

This clinic works hard to provide the best possible healthcare at a cost that everyone can afford.
Because acupuncture treatment doesn't need to be expensive to be effective.

Acupuncture is one of the most effective
treatments available for musculoskeletal pain. It has proven to be more effective and safer than most pharmacological options, as well as many other therapies.

Whether you want to come in for short term health goals like getting your pain gone, dealing with anxiety and depression, or if you're looking for a long-term, comprehensive treatment plan for optimal health - we're here for you.

The clinic takes the best from classical acupuncture theory & technique from China, Japan and Korea as well as incorporating modern neurological & musculoskeletal understanding and practices. Some conditions respond better to different forms of acupuncture - scalp, auricular, trigger point, IMS, etc, so we'll do what works best for whatever you're dealing with. We're pleased to provide regenerative, restorative medicine to promote health and recovery rather than enabling further dependance on pills and drugs to mask symptoms.
