Welcome to Spruce Grove Acupuncture!

 

 

We are your Traditional Chinese Medicine experts located in the Hillside Centre on the corner of Grove Drive and King Street.

 

At Spruce Grove Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine, we take pride in providing excellent care to our patients. Our empathetic practitioners take the time to hear your concerns and to provide you the care you need.

 

When you book an acupuncture appointment with us, you are not limited to a 1-hour treatment. During your visit, you will have plenty of time to allow your mind and body to relax, and this in turn allows your nervous system to move from a stress state into a rest, digest, and heal mode. We treat both front and back sides of the body to promote balance. Using TCM diagnostic tools like pulse and tongue diagnosis, our practitioners are interested in getting a complete picture of your health in order to design the optimal treatment plan and help you on your journey to wellness. We do not charge extra fees for additional modalities like cupping, moxibustion, Gua Sha, or other techniques that we feel would be helpful in your treatment. Please allow 1.5-2 hours for your initial consultation appointment, and 1-2 hours for your follow up visits.

 

We are lifelong students and continuously pursue advanced education to offer the best care to our clients!
