Cameron Wallace

Registered Acupuncturist

Cameron Wallace is a registered Acupuncturist with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners & Acupuncturists of British Columbia. He graduated from Reeves college in Edmonton AB, then transferred his registration back home to BC. 

Cameron believes that the healing process can begin with one simple step. There are three main areas in ones life to think about when you think about health. Diet, exercise, and body work. It is good to incorporate a balance in all these aspects of life. You need to eat, you need to move, and along the way an injury or aliment can arise. Its not just about getting acupuncture when you are stricken with an ailment. Acupuncture and recommendations on diet and exercise are great ways to prevent the ailment from happening in the first place.

Cameron’s favourite condition to work on is pain! He likes leaving clients at the end of a treatment feeling relaxed, healed and ready to enjoy their day. 

Acupuncture is an amazing tool for healing. Acupuncture is more then just needles. We have several tools in our tool box so to speak!
As an acupuncturist I enjoy incorporating these tools into treatments. Some modalities you may have herd of, and some you might not have.
Using my knowledge behind Traditional Chinese Medicine I can treat a wide variety of conditions.
My main area of focus is on sports related injuries, lower back pain, upper back pain, neck, shoulders, hip, knee, and sciatica.
There are many conditions that i enjoy helping clients with, so feel free to call and see how acupuncture can help you.

Shannon VanMarrum

Registered Acupuncturist  

Shannon is new to Nanaimo and recently worked in a multidisciplinary clinic as a Doctor of Acupuncture in Alberta and is now registered in BC, as a Registered Acupuncturist (R.Ac). Shannon is looking forward to meeting our lovely locals, and helping them to obtain the best possible health so that they too can enjoy working and living in the beautiful city they call home.   

In practicing with an amazing group of Osteopaths, Acupuncturist and Kinesiologist, she has learned how to best combine her needling techniques and knowledge of her Chinese manual training in a complimentary fashion. For example, pressing current issues can be resolved, along with the correction of root patterns that have led to a compromised state of health.  

 “We are organic beings that function as a whole, and we are unique. Two people can come in to see me with seemingly the same issue, yet have completely different patterns or paths that their bodies have taken to get to that point. This translates to two totally diverse treatment plans. There is no such thing as one treatment fits all in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Each plan is customized to suit a person's constitution, healing ability and emotional state. For this reason, I absolutely love what I do and all the tools that I can use to bring about change and improved health. It also means that even those clients that are uncomfortable with needles have very effective options that they can be at ease with. Acupuncture really is such a wonderful way to practice!”

Currently, Shannon has been doing extra training that  looks at how to successfully help those with traumatic brain injuries, using alternative needling methods and their documented findings. Due to the many complications that tend to be ongoing (and often missed), she feels it’s an important learning endeavor and most definitely needed in today's healthcare field.  

Whether you have something that needs immediate attention, or just a little something that is starting to get under your skin, we encourage you to book an appointment with Shannon. She is more than happy to see what she can do for you. Join us in welcoming Shannon to our clinic!
