StillPoint Healing Centre greets physiques with holistic massage, acupuncture, yoga classes, and workshops for nurturing the body and mind. Skilled yogis shepherd sun-saluters to peace of mind with a slate of sessions, such as classes for beginners, advanced dynamic-flow sessions, and sunrise meetings for early risers and insomniac owls. The centre's registered massage therapists and acupuncturists ease aches with five distinct massage modalities—such as deep-tissue, hot-stone, and Thai massage—and the precise placement of microfilament needles. Benefits range from stimulation of the circulatory and lymphatic systems to relieved tension to improved range of motion, which can help when running backward to stare at and still escape from an attractive ghost.
Wellness Within began as a small office with one massage therapist and one massage room. It rapidly grew into an alternative health clinic that includes yoga classes, an organic spa, a college of massage and wellness, and a boutique. Softly lit private treatment rooms host massages and acupuncture, and an infrared sauna helps relieve aches and stress. A sextet of instructors hosts nine classes, such as Mom and Baby yoga, as well as a kids' yoga camp where youth mix quiet time with games and stretching exercises.
Wellness Within’s boutique is located in the lobby, like the least frequently used hotel bathtubs. Bracelets dangle from dishes atop wooden tables, necklaces hang off branches on a tree, and shiny teapots glisten in navy, bright green, orange, and white.
A chiropractor, a doctor of naturopathic medicine, a doctor of herbal and integrative medicine, and a trio of massage therapists work at LifeSense Chiropractic + Wellness Studio. It is their home away from home, where they spend their days helping patients find relief from new and chronic pain. Also on staff is a doctor of herbal and integrative medicine, a branch of medicine that examines a single drop of blood under a powerful microscope to determine one’s health and favourite jellybean flavor.
A certified acupuncturist and reflexologist, David Turner believes that "good health comes from nurturing the soul, directing the mind, and caring for the body." At Simple Road Acupuncture & Reflexology, David takes a holistic, multi-faceted approach to healing his patients. In doing so, he calls upon treatments such as acupuncture, reflexology, auricular ear therapy, and traditional chinese therapies that often include herbal regimens.
The Water Garden ushers yogis of all ages and levels into circular, sun-saturated yoga studios, where skilled instructors lead 11 diverse classes. A vigorous Vinyasa Yoga class focuses on enhancing practitioners' power and flexibility, synching a series of flowing movements with deep breaths. A Yin Yoga class, meanwhile, champions movements as slow and graceful as a turtle on ice skates, helping practitioners open up stiff joints and connective tissues. Lighthearted family classes encourage peaceful bows between siblings, and Mom & Baby Yoga reduces stress and reconditions the pelvic floor, rewinding new mothers and their babies into pre-pregnancy shape. Though not included in this Groupon, yogis can deepen their practice by exploring The Water Garden's myriad holistic therapies.
Doctors Martin Wang and Dongying Xu help clients cope with the effects of bodily maladies both tangible and intangible with the power of ancient Chinese medicinal techniques. Acupuncture, herbal therapy, and therapeutic massage allay symptoms ranging from chronic pain and problems with smoking to psoriasis and arthritis. Should acupuncture’s hair-thin needles leave clients anxious, the doctors bring the full and similar power of acupressure to bear on the body, realigning and manipulating meridians to maximize the body’s ability to heal itself. In addition to their in-office treatments, the pair also store a library's worth of folk remedies on their website, helping readers combat common complaints ranging from seasonal sneezing to turning to stone.
It’s only natural that Brandy Buchanan’s treatment plans draw from a variety of therapeutic methods—she is a registered acupuncturist, experienced spa therapist, yoga instructor, and has a master’s-level diploma in traditional Chinese medicine. She often uses acupuncture and massage in the same session, including a cupping style of massage that uses suction from glass cups pressed against the skin to draw blood into muscles. Methods such as these support her specialization in pain management, a practice she furthers by recommending home exercises to help correct postural imbalances and give self-worth back to neglected free weights.
The Acupuncture Turning Point’s therapeutic team—which includes registered acupuncturists, a fully licensed massage therapist, certified doulas and maternity coach, an occupational health nurse, and a physiotherapist—works collaboratively to facilitate wellness. Performed in both communal and private sessions, acupuncture serves as their primary wellness tactic. The centre rounds out its services with massage and rehabilitative therapies, which help clients by supporting their body's natural healing systems, in addition to specialized care for patients pursuing long-term goals such as increasing fertility or athletic abilities.
At Medicom Pain Clinic, technicians treat a variety of ailments with the aid of lasers, including hair loss, arthritis, and sports injuries. They use lasers on scalps to stimulate hair growth, take aim at joints with laser treatments designed to reduce inflammation, and employ lasers to increase the growth of healthy skin cells, which results in firmer, younger-looking skin. Other treatments range from Theralase laser acupuncture to smoking-cessation treatments, which work to reduce cravings and symptoms of withdrawal.
Equipped with knowledge of ancient Eastern techniques, the acupuncturists, herbalists, and massage therapists of University Traditional Chinese Medicine Clinic work to ease both physical and psychological symptoms.

Other treatments at the centre include Chinese tui na massage, herbal medicine, and reflexology.
