Find Wellness Through Ancient Practices
Optimum Wellness Centres is pleased to provide Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) at most of our locations. We use ancient methods developed over thousands of years. With a combination of treatments and techniques, we can help you restore balance to your body in a more holistic way.
TCM is largely based on the concept of qi (pronounced as chee), which is your life force. Qi flows through your body via different pathways or meridians. According to this belief system, qi must be in perfect balance, flowing from meridian to meridian. Otherwise, you may become sick.
Using a combination of TCM methods, we aim to restore your qi’s flow and balance, restoring your body to health.
On your first visit, you will be met by our friendly support staff who will help you with filling out forms, answer any questions and help with anything else you need. You will then meet with the practitioner to discuss your specific concerns and health history.
Assessment & Recommendation for Care
Your practitioner will discuss your specific needs, present your options, suggest a treatment plan, and discuss the benefits and any risks associated with the recommended treatment. Treatment plans are specific to each patient.

Q. DO I NEED A REFERRAL FOR TCM?
Traditional Chinese medicine is meant to be accessible to all who may need it, so you do not need a doctor’s referral to access treatment.
Q. IS TCM BETTER THAN WESTERN MEDICINE?
There is no yes or no answer to this question. Both TCM and western medicine have demonstrated strengths and weaknesses. TCM takes a slower and less invasive approach to healing than many kinds of western medicine. This gradual methodology means treatment may be less risky than some western medicines.
Q. WHAT CAN TCM TREAT?
TCM is used to treat a wide variety of conditions, including:
- Asthma - Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Infertility - PMS
- Sinusitis - Fibromyalgia
- Constipation - Headaches
- Arthritis - Irritable bowel syndrome
- Chronic fatigue - Menopause
- Sciatica - Indigestion
- Anxiety - Depression
Q. DOES TCM ACTUALLY WORK?
While TCM certainly has its skeptics, many people (and physicians) believe very strongly in the healing properties of TCM. In fact, the World Health Organization recognizes TCM in its compendium.
Like any medical treatment, results will vary from person to person. Be sure to give your practitioner your full medical history before undergoing TCM.

Just have to thank Dr. Nina!!! The chiropractic care I receive is outstanding and with such precision and creativity! I have an autoimmune condition called Scleroderma which causes extreme mis-alignment and muscle/joint pain. After an adjustment I feel amazing and helps me to cope with the symtoms so I don’t have to take pharmaceuticals that often. Also, I notice my low blood pressure is back to normal since I have been seeing Dr. Nina. I am so relieved I can start up my adjustments again. I have referred my nieces, my sister, and my friend and they all are of the same opinion!! Dr. Nina is my Chiropractor for life!!!
I highly recommend Nicole, I had my first massage with her today and it was very relaxing and took a lot of the stress out of my body from the last few months. I felt very comfortable with Nicole, she is easy going, respectful and professional. It was just the perfect combination of touch and light conversation at the right time. I will most definitely be going back to Nicole in the future.
Made the mistake of going to another provider based on them open on Saturday, what a mistake. Minimal relieve and care. I returned to Dr. Jamie Mulholland in Airdrie and what a difference. Hips line up, pain on standing gone, not hunched over due to lower and upper back pain, headaches relieve in the first visit back to Dr. Jamie. Won’t venture away again.
Realiza of Sunridge location is highly recommended for her massage skills. She takes time to understand client’s concern and offers an effective approach to address them.
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Jackie Fairbourn for over 8 years and I highly recommend her as an amazingly gifted healing facilitator. She continues to impress me with her openness to adding gentle healing approaches to her extensive chiropractic skill set. Lately I have particularly enjoyed the tension-relieving benefits resulting from receiving Body Code, Emotional Code and now, Network Care. I appreciate her calm, informed and intuitive healing support.
I was referred by a friend to Jency Henry Physiotherapist at Macleod trail Optimum for my back pain. She is amazing, she knows what she is doing. She was explaining during the assessment and treatment session about what are my issues and what needs to be treated or taken care. I was very satisfied about her approach in treating my pain. I came to understand about my body better like my weakness and tightness. I feel very light as if most of my weight has been off from my back after my session.
