Toronto Alternative Therapy Clinic
Get to Know Us

A Little Story about
Pacific Wellness

The Pacific Wellness Institute is one of North America’s leading providers of alternative medicine and treatments located in downtown Toronto, Canada.

We opened our modest acupuncture and Oriental medicine clinic on Yorkville Ave. in 1990. Over the many years, we have been serving our clients from downtown Toronto neighborhoods and from out of town. We have been successfully treating a wide range of health issues ranging from chronic pain, sports injuriesmigraine, and fertility concerns.

The word traveled fast about good results. Our practice has rapidly grown without heavy promotional efforts and quickly became a premier destination for acupuncture, shiatsu, massage therapy and other alternative treatments. Our practice moved to a spacious 3600 SQF office at 80 Bloor Street West in 1994.

Increasingly, many family doctors, physiotherapists, fertility specialists, chiropractors, naturopath, psychologists, and other healthcare professionals have been referring their patients to our clinic.

Our success is credited to our gifted practitioners and remarkable staff who have worked for us for so many years and provided excellent care for our clients.

Of course, our success is thanks to many of our patients who have placed great confidence and trust in us and who have been telling people they care about to come and experience our therapeutic services.

Thank you!
