About UsFor thousands of years, traditional Chinese medicinal practices have encouraged women to modify their lifestyles to reduce stress during pregnancy to ensure an efficient birth, a calm emotional state, and most importantly, a healthy baby.
Using acupuncture as a tool, we follow these same principles, in conjunction with Western medicine, to offer women an integrated, whole body approach to health - especially fertility and pregnancy health. We're trained to listen to concerns, take a complete medical history, and pay special attention to how the entire body - as a unit - is functioning.
We're passionate about women's health. It really is that simple.
When we saw that women in Edmonton were not getting all they could out of traditional Chinese medicine - both as an alternative and a complement to Western medicine - we decided to fill the gap.
We offer women a holistic, natural, and alternative way to live a healthier life. By specializing in fertility, and pregnancy health, we ensure women have access to healthcare options and choices they didn't have access to before.
