In the comfortable, peaceful and unique atmosphere of a heritage home near downtown St. John’s, Back To Health incorporates knowledge of conventional approaches to health with traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture, cosmetic acupuncture, homeopathy and iridology.


Holistic Health Care Therapies

At Back To Health, our specialized services reflect the emerging holistic health care consciousness of mind, body and spirit. Assessments incorporate alternative and conventional methods. Treatments cover all levels of illness and can be preventive, restorative, rehabilitative and palliative.


Common applications of our non-harm approach to treatment include pain management, stress management, addiction management, motor recovery and immune regulation. We also help patients with:

  • Chronic pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Back pain
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Infertility
  • Respiratory problems
  • Cancer support
  • Digestive complaints


Back To Health services can augment other health care services beautifully, and we believe this to be the ideal. The number of treatments required and the length of time between them are determined by individual patient response. Our methods of assessment are comprehensive and individualized, including full musculo-skeletal assessment with muscle and joint testing for back conditions.


Assessment time depends on your condition and its severity. Initial assessment typically takes 90 minutes and follow-up treatment one hour. In more serious cases, the assessment might take two visits.
