Clayton has been in practice since 2004 and beginning in 2008 has provided free acupuncture treatment in mental health & addiction programs at Island Health facilities in Nanaimo with a particular focus treating anxiety, depression, PTSD, chronic pain and withdrawal from opiates & alcohol.
The number of people living with chronic pain is increasing but a lot of treatments and services are unavailable to many of them due to rising costs. This is why Clayton takes a lot of training to provide more advanced & effective treatment options and also tries to provide these services at affordable costs. He has studied many different ways of practicing acupuncture and injection therapies to not just treat pain but to correct and repair the body.
Clayton currently works on the board of the BC Association of TCM & Acupuncture Practitioners and is a member of the Nanaimo Senior Services Network. In the past, he has donated services in support of the Haven Society, Nanaimo Women’s Resource Centre, Loaves & Fishes as well as for the Stz'uminus and Snuneymuxw First Nations. He has always seen health care as a service; not for large financial gains, but rather the social dividends of seeing the people in his community live healthier lives.
Clayton frequently treats a lot of pain including:
