Clinic update re: COVID-19

We are very excited to announce that we will be reopening some of our Health and Wellness Clinics on August 10. To start, we will be reopening our massage, acupuncture, spa and restorative clinics. We hope to reopen the remainder of our clinics mid-September.

Clients soon whose treatments were disrupted due to COVID-19 will be contacted. We thank you for your patience during this difficult time and look forward to seeing you soon!

About the clinic


Acupuncture is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) modality that uses points on the body that lie on meridians or pathways along which the body’s life-giving energy called Qi circulates.

Under the supervision of professional clinic mentors, Georgian College Acupuncture students provide treatments including electroacupuncture, acupressure, cupping, herbal remedies and moxa.

If you are a new client, please take a look at the Acupuncture acknowledgement agreement before your first appointment.

All instructors/mentors involved in training students and supervising the Georgian College Acupuncture Clinic are duly regulated members in good standing with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (CTCMPAO). CTCMPAO is the governing body established by the Government of Ontario under the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 and the Traditional Chinese Medicine Act, 2006.
