Cindy Hautanen R.TCMP, R.Ac

Registered Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner and Registered Acupuncturist

A note on Covid -19:

To ensure all patients, myself and my family are safe, I have been taking extra precautions with sanitizing and cleaning.

I ask that all clients who are sick, experiencing symptoms of COUGH, FEVER, OR TROUBLE BREATHING, or have travelled out of Northwestern Ontario within the last 14 days to reschedule their appointment.

During this time I will be more lenient with late cancellations and rescheduling although I do ask for as much notice as possible.

Thank you for your cooperation and continued support.

Acupuncture is extremely safe. It is an all-natural, drug-free therapy, yielding no side effects just feelings of relaxation and well-being. There is little danger of infection from acupuncture needles because they are sterile, used once, and then discarded.
