Snuneymuxw Traditional Medicines Clinic

The Snuneymuxw Traditional Medicines Clinic is here to share the power of sacred traditional medicines with you. We look forward to welcoming you into the clinic and chatting about your health needs and wellness goals.

Traditional acupuncture treatments are offered at our Clinic at no cost and needle alternatives are also available.

The benefits we’ve experienced include:

  • Easing of physical pain
  • Regulating sleep, decreasing anxiety, stress and depression.
  • Traditional medicines are also effective for the treatment of maternal and child health issues.

The Snuneymuxw Traditional Medicines Clinic continues a longstanding relationship with the Chinese community. We recognize the beautiful connection between Snuneymuxw Ancestral wellness knowledge and other traditional practices. We hope you will continue this tradition of care, in benefit of yourself and your loved ones.

Traditional Treatments

Acupuncture is more than needles, so if you’re weary of needles, you can let your practitioner know and we would be happy to use other methods. 

Treatments include:

  • acupuncture
  • acupressure
  • pediatric shonishin (non-needle painless and effective method for young children)
  • massage
  • cupping
  • Gua Sha (An ancient healing method that involves a trained professional using a smooth-edged tool to stroke your skin while they press on it.)

The Snuneymuxw Traditional Medicines Clinic is located within the Snuneymuxw Learning Academy.

Please enter through the main doors and follow the signs towards the clinic.
