About

Jessica McDonald
Registered Acupuncturist

I can’t remember one specific moment that sticks out to me that defines when I first became interested in health, self-care, concepts of wellness, and helping others. These have been passed on through countless memories and moments shared with my family since I was a very small child. We spent time outside, ate what we had grown, prepared and shared meals together, and laughed a lot! Even though I had a lot of support and great role models, like most people, my childhood and adolescence had plenty of ups and downs. I now know that this is what set the foundation for resiliency and developing my curiosity and consciousness.

 

Later in life, after working in a completely different field, I became very interested in Chinese culture and Medicine. It appeared so logical and straightforward even though the language used to explain and describe it is often poetic and seemingly obscure. It follows cycles and nature and doesn’t just talk about the fluff and surface issues but gets to the hard, messy core. I fell in love.

 

Now, I have been registered and practicing Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine for over 6 years and continue to learn new things every day – mostly from clients and observing people, animals, nature, and the collective consciousness. My practice could be described as generalistic but a passion and area of focus for me is helping people to see through areas of pain and discomfort to past root causes, experiences, and traumas and assisting them in establishing new healthy patterns.

When I am not busy in the clinic, I provide acupuncture treatments at addiction centres and speak to groups about acupuncture and wellness, and I am especially loving holding group Acupuncture-Meditation Sessions (this is amazing, contact me for more details). I strengthen and restore my spirit with dog cuddles and walks (check out all my Willa puppy posts on Instagram), reading, yoga, cruising on my bike, watching movies with the hubby, and gardening.

Testimonials

Christine

I was recovering from surgery and had issues with my neck and back and overall aching and lethargy. After several sessions with Jessica having both acupuncture and some cupping my body generally felt looser and I had fewer aches. This also helped with my mental state, as I had been feeling quite down after the surgery due to the tiredness and aching I was feeling. One very notable area where I have felt tremendous improvement is in my hands. Jessica focused on them at one of our sessions and after a couple of days I felt so much improvement and continue to do so.

My experience with Jessica has been a journey back to health. I had a variety of symptoms causing me to be feeling not well. Jessica’s diagnosis seems to be accurate and her treatments on point; I no longer feel low energy, tired, hot, sick. My symptoms also included emotional distresses that were seemingly challenging. The treatments Jessica administered over the months of working with her helped me to become calmer. I’ve been more able to deal with my emotions from a clear perspective. I would say Jessica has established a treatment to de-stress and to help regain health of those physical burdensome related to stress. Thanks Jessy!

Dr. Jessica McDonald has been friendly, compassionate, and professional making a difficult process easier. I started seeing her while experiencing on-going pain; it is my belief that without her assistance I would not be pain-free today. I have continued to see her for various other complaints. Dr. McDonald is always available to answer questions or concerns and is a true professional. I would strongly recommend Dr. McDonald to friends or family. She is an excellent acupuncturist that truly cares and goes above and beyond.

TRY IT! You will not be disappointed.

Wow it was so good to meet you yesterday!! I have been doing research about the spleen function & what happens when it is under distress. All of it makes so much sense in terms of what I have been eating, doing, how I have been living! I have all of the obvious signs. Thank you so much for seeing it. I can now work at addressing it. Much gratitude & light.

I am often asked how I got into acupuncture, but recently, I was asked why I got into the field of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.
