Please read the following instructions and ensure you have completed all the steps BEFORE BOOKING your appointment.  If you do not receive an email confirming your appointment, this means your booking has not been completed.

All appointments may be booked online or by calling the clinic. 


If you do not see an available time that works for you or you would like to book a weekend appointment, please do not hesitate to call or text the clinic at (705) 722-6367 to discuss availability. 


The focus of all treatments is always on the patient, not the disease/cause/symptom that has brought you to our clinic. Our goal here at Essence of Health is to work together with you to develop a treatment strategy that is highly personalized to you and your desired results.  

Your treatment plan may then be altered to account for the changes or it may stay the same depending on your results. 

Follow-up Sessions can be booked for 30, 45 or 60 minute sessions, depending on your needs and which treatment you would like to have done (i.e., cupping, acupuncture, physiotherapy). 

We recommend doing sessions in series, for example, weekly for 4 to 8 sessions.


  • Write down and bring any questions you have, as we are here to help you

  • For a proper tongue diagnosis:

    • Avoid brushing your tongue before treatment

    • Try not to consume beverages that may stain your tongue, such as coffee and candies

  • Do not eat large meals just before or after your visit, however, a small snack is recommended

  • Be honest when answering questions, as all answers are confidential and aide in your treatment

  • Our treatment sessions are minimally 30 minutes in length so please use the bathroom prior

  • Do not consume alcoholic beverages before or after treatment


  • Slowly get up from the table as you could feel slightly light-headed and/or dizzy

  • DRINK PLENTY of WARM to HOT WATER to help eliminate toxins out of the body

  • Avoid Ice and Cold Packs as they will slow the progress made during the acupuncture treatment

  • We recommend that you plan some time to relax after your visit so you can feel the whole benefit of the treatment

  • Pay attention to your Emotions – some people can feel a bit more emotional or more sensitive after so be kind to yourself and allow any emotions to come up so it can then be released

  • Between visits, take note of any changes that may have occurred, so you can report back to your acupuncturist at your next appointment

If you would like reschedule an appointment, you can do this by calling the clinic or login in to Jane App and making the change there, as long as it is 24 hours before your appointment. 


Your appointment time is reserved just for you. A late cancellation or missed visit leaves a hole in the therapists' day that could have been filled by another patient. As such, we require 24 hours notice for any cancellations or changes to your appointment. Patients who provide less than 24 hours notice, or miss their appointment, will be charged a cancellation fee (50% of the treatment fee).



If you would like to be put on a cancellation list for a particular day and time, please call the clinic. We will be sure to call you if an appointment time becomes available and if a therapist knows you are trying to get in, they might be able to find a spot in the schedule where they can accommodate you.
