Acupuncture And Cupping

Acupuncture is a common therapeutic intervention derived from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). All of our naturopathic doctors have completed hundreds of hours of training in acupuncture as part of their naturopathic medicine degrees in the form of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Acupuncture involves the use of small, sterile, non-reusable needles as part of a more comprehensive program or for acute conditions. At NatCan, acupuncture is performed by ALL OF OUR NATUROPATHIC DOCTORS as well as members of our physiotherapy and massage team (*only RMT performing Contemporary Acupuncture is Sheri Robinson). Unlike NDs, chiropractors, physiotherapists and massage therapists perform medical/contemporary acupuncture, a system that approaches treatment from a more physical paradigm and not constitutional.


Cupping is an ancient component of TCM treatments. It is particularly effective for addressing muscle or chest congestion. Cupping involves the use of glass or plastic cups that are placed on the body to help increase circulation. This treatment is offered by both Drs. Leanna Campoli and Stefania Iovine, ND and our registered massage therapists.

      • I have been seeing Dr Santos at this Wellness Centre for several months and she’s been absolutely amazing. Her ability to always gain a holistic understanding of patients, encourage detailed testing before diagnosing have made her outstanding. She always takes plenty of time to ask questions, to actively listen and engage me in the decision process. I’d recommend Dr Santos to everyone.

My energy levels have remained good and with the diet and recommended supplements suggested by Anita my journey is positive! Thank you for your care, kindness and compassion that you have always shown me and my loved ones that have come with me as support.
