Book Now for Registered Acupuncture with Andrea Jones R.Ac.

Acupuncture rebalances the body’s energy flow, known as Qi (Chi) through the insertion of ultra-fine needles into specific points on the body along energetic pathways, referred to as meridians. There are 365 points along 12 main meridians. As a Registered Acupuncturist, Andrea will often use additional Traditional Chinese Medicine Techniques such as Acupressure, Cupping, Gua Sha, and Tui Na massage during a treatment.

By doing an in-depth intake through the lens of Chinese Medicine a working diagnosis is determined which then evolves into an individual treatment plan. This form of medicine focuses on treating the root of the issue while incorporating mind, body and spirit. There are a myriad of diseases and conditions for which acupuncture is an appropriate treatment option. The body of research in support of acupuncture is extensive and expanding. Acupuncture can work beautifully in conjunction with western medicine.

Andrea is passionate about blending allopathic medicine, eastern medicine and energy healing to bring all aspects of each patient into balance; formulating unique individual treatment plans to support you in living your most empowered life. Andrea’s unique blend of training allows her to see your health from various lenses making connections that may be otherwise overlooked.

Areas of specialty include mental health (anxiety/depression), emotional trauma, stress, chronic pain, queer health and complex illness. Andrea is excited to bring her practice to the community of Castlegar and bring her passion of integrative wellness to you.

Reiki is a form of healing that works with universal energy. So what is universal energy? We are energy, what we eat provides energy, the planet is energy and our environments are energy. Life and its unpredictability can sometimes cause this energy to be unbalanced. Using reiki symbols we can influence this energy to flow back into alignment in our and around our body. When we are in harmony energetically the body functions at its best. Reiki can alleviate stress, calm the mind, support digestion, aid in sleep & bring clarity to daily life. Reiki sessions can be held in person or virtually via zoom.

Cupping Therapy is a noninvasive body work technique that creates suction on the skin with the intent to increase blood/qi flow and remove pathogenic factors. Cupping can be done on various areas of the body to treat musculoskeletal pain, digestive symptoms, asthma/allergies, women's health and so much more. By manipulating the exterior of the body and assessing the resulting cupping marks the acupuncturist can influence meridians and focus on specific internal organs relating to your Chinese Medicine diagnosis.

I graduated from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College with Honours as a Doctor of Chiropractic. I am trained in Diversified Chiropractic Technique, Myofascial Release Therapy, Graston Technique, Kinesiotaping, and I have a special interest in nerve pathology and pre & post-surgical rehabilitation.

I believe in comprehensive Chiropractic care. It restores proper function to the joints, optimizes the nervous system, and helps the body function at its best, from Head 2 Toe!

I am so happy to call Castlegar my home. I fell in love with the beautiful community of Castlegar in 2013 when I moved here to start practicing. I am excited to be offering Chiropractic services in the heart of downtown Castlegar. I look forward to sharing with the whole family, everything that compassion and Chiropractic care can do!
