About Nanaimo Acupuncture

This clinic previously existed as Island Community Acupuncture, one of the first Community Acupuncture clinics in Canada. The name changed in 2013, but the ideals of providing the highest possible care at the most affordable price have stayed exactly the same.

Nanaimo Acupuncture exists to provide affordable healthcare to everyone who wants it. Our goal is simple, to help people get back to health, and in doing so be an example for ethical and sustainable practice. We provide affordable acupuncture in a group setting as well as cutting edge treatments one on one including acupoint injection therapy and prolotherapy.

We are located at the corner of Campbell & Wallace underneath the Caledonian Medical Clinic across the ball from Lifelabs. There’s free parking in the building parking lot as well as street parking on both Campbell and Wallace streets.

This clinic is part of a pilot project for Age-Friendly Service providers in Nanaimo, and it should be noted the the washroom facilities in the building are not fully accessible friendly. In the group treatment space we have one lift assist chair for people with mobility issues and if you need it, please request it. We also have several reclining chairs which can be folded up in case people prefer to remain in their wheelchairs.

We are pleased to welcome clients from all around Nanaimo from the south; Duncan, Chemainus and Ladysmith as well as North of Nanaimo including Parksvile, Qualicum and Errington. We also see clients from Gabriola, Protection and other island communities.
