Good-bye 2020!

As you probably know, effective Saturday, December 26, 2020, the Ontario government has imposed a province-wide shutdown for 28 days in Southern Ontario. However, regulated health services such as those provided by TCM Practitioners and Acupuncturists may remain open, with all safety precautions in place, to treat patients.   

In the last six months, the top two reasons people have come to me for treatment are mental health issues (stress, anxiety, and depression) and pain.

 During these COVID times, I am only practicing at Wellness Path, so if you are in need of treatment, call reception at 905-623-9232 to make an appointment.  You can also call/text my cell at 905-431-8217 to talk about your health concerns or to re-order an herbal supplement.

Regular Hours starting January 4th, 2021:

Tuesdays 10:00-6:00

Wednesdays 12:30-6:00

Occasional Thursdays, call if needed

Most Saturdays 9:00- 1:00

Acupuncture:

An effective, safe, drug-free method to improve your well-being. Call or text 905-431-8217 to see if acupuncture and TCM is appropriate for your condition.

Enjoying Naps in the Winter Season
