NEW patients - TCM Initial Consult and Acupuncture session (75 min) +ECT
75 minutes
$145.00

75 min First visit TCM consultation and assessment, with acupuncture, (+extra clean time) for NEW patients New patients to the clinic are encouraged to arrive 5-10 minutes before scheduled appointment to complete the intake form. Note: Requires a 90 minute time block opening.


Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theorizes that there are approximately 365 acupuncture points on the human body that connects with 12 main and 8 secondary pathways, called meridians. These meridians create an energy flow and conduct energy or Qi (pronounced “chee”) between the surface of the body and internal organs, and is responsible for overall health. Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese practice that involves puncturing the skin with hair-thin needles (filiform) at particular locations, called acupuncture points, to enhance the flow of Qi. Acupuncture is used to balance and keep the normal flow of energy unblocked, and restore health to the body and mind. When you are healthy, Qi flows smoothly and the body is balanced.

Does It Hurt?
The acupuncture needles are so thin that 10 to 15 acupuncture needles can be placed in one hypodermic (injection) needle. The sensation that is expected from acupuncture is not painful (i.e. not what you would expect from a needle). The sensation is called “De Qi” and it can include numbness, aching, tingling, warmth, distension, heaviness, or lightness. The sensation can be local or it may radiate. Many people find acupuncture is actually very relaxing and often fall asleep.

How Safe Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is very safe. In Vancouver and British Columbia, all acupuncturists must be licensed and are required to complete an acupuncture safety course, which includes clean needle technique (including disposable sterile needles) and acupoint safety. As with any medical treatment, there may be risks involved for the individual and it is important to discuss these with your practitioner.

Is Acupuncture Covered By Medical Insurance?
Many extended health insurance plans in Vancouver and British Columbia do cover up to $500 of acupuncture each year. Check with your health insurance provider for details. In BC, MSP will cover a portion of your visit for qualifying individuals. Inquire with your practitioner for more details on the requirements.

Facial Acupuncture Rejuvenation +ECT
90 minutes
$175.00

90 min Facial Acupuncture Rejuvenation treatment for new and current/returning patients (+extra clean time) New patients to the clinic are encouraged to arrive 5-10 minutes before scheduled appointment to complete the intake form. Note: Requires a 90 minute time block opening.

Facial Acupuncture Rejuvenation is a constitutional approach to treating the tone and skin health of the face. Not only are local points and manual techniques used, but also points are used to treat your whole body in order to achieve balance and renewal of your health. Very fine needles are placed at a variety of acupuncture points on the face, neck and around the eyes to stimulate the body’s natural energies (Qi). Since muscle groups are addressed as well as the acupuncture points, the face lifts itself, via the acupuncture points, is through the muscles’ toning and tightening action. The needles also stimulate blood and circulation, which improves facial color and brings more radiance to the skin. ,i>Is Facial Acupuncture for Everyone? For the vast majority of prospective clients, it is a safe and beneficial treatment, not only for prevention of wrinkles, but also the reversal of the customary signs of aging. However, there are a few contraindications for facial acupuncture. Contraindications: Severe high blood pressure (it is OK when the blood pressure is under control and seeing a medical doctor) Severe migraines (if having a migraine only once every 3 months or so, can receive facial acupuncture treatments) Micordermabrasion: Be aware that it takes a patient 3 weeks to recover from laser resurfacing on the face. Wait a week after microdermabrasion. See our website for the complete list of contraindications. How Long is the Treatment? Facial Acupuncture involves the patient in an organic process, in which a series of treatments is necessary to achieve maximal effect. After an initial session, practitioner evaluates the patient’s response, and then can determine the number of follow-up visits that will be required. During this evaluation, the practitioner takes into consideration other variables such as stress, diet, lifestyle, genetic inheritance, proper digestion and elimination, sleep, emotional balance, and age. The average course of treatment is usually 10-15 treatments. It should be noted that age is not as crucial as might be estimated. An older patient with a healthy lifestyle may in fact have a better prognosis than a younger person who is prone to dissipate themselves. Facial Acupuncture Rejuvenation is non-invasive, non-toxic, less costly than surgical procedures, and draws upon ancient Chinese wisdom for longevity, beauty and balance. – excerpts by permission from Mary Elizabeth Wakefield, the Chi-Akra Center and Virginia Doran, LAc.

NEW patients - First Visit Tuina Massage Session (with or without Acupuncture) for new patients to Red Tree Wellness +ECT
60 minutes
$120.00

First visit is 60 minutes in duration - includes an assessment and a 30-40 minute Tuina massage session. (+extra clean time) First time patients are encouraged to arrive 5-10 minutes before scheduled appointment to complete the intake form. Tuina massage may also involve some Acupuncture if deemed appropriate, however no acupuncture is necessary for therapeutic effects. Tuina massage is performed by Registered Acupuncturists.

Tuina (Tui-na), which dates back to 1,700 BC, is the parent of most modern Asian bodywork forms. Tuina in Chinese translates to “Push-Pull”, and is in reference to the techniques used on the body. Tuina is best described as a cross between Shiatsu and acupressure. It's taught as a separate but equal field of study in schools of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Tuina uses rhythmic compressions along the meridians of the body, as well as a variety of techniques to promote circulation and lubricate the joints. Tuina's bodywork - holding, pressing and manually working on the body at acupressure points and meridians - directly affects the flow of Qi (Life-force energy and vitality). Many of the techniques are similar to conventional Swedish-style massage – gliding (known as effleurage or Tui), kneading (petrissage or Na), percussion (tapotement or Da), friction, pulling, rotation, rocking, vibration, and shaking. Tuina has an ability to focus on specific problems, especially chronic pain associated with the muscles, joints, and skeletal system. It's especially effective for joint pain (such as arthritis), sciatica, muscle spasms, and pain in the back, neck, and shoulders. It also helps chronic conditions such as insomnia, constipation, headaches (including migraines), and tension associated with stress. Tui Na does not simply work on the muscles, bones, and joints. It works with the energy of the body at a deeper level. As the practitioner senses the body with their hands, they are able to assess the distribution of energy and affect its flow. Tuina is a great therapeutic extension of Chinese Medicine, with an emphasis on restoring and balancing energy.
