nanaimo acupuncture

John Sun is a Nanaimo Registered Acupuncturist of British Columbia, with over ten years clinical experience in China, United States and Canada. He provides an integrated and naturally therapeutic approach to patients that is complementary to traditional medical care.

Nanaimo Acupuncture is a complementary medical practice that entails stimulating certain points on the body, most often with a needle penetrating the skin, to alleviate pain or to help treat various health conditions. 

His specializations include:

  • Nanaimo Acupuncture
  • Herbal Medicine
  • Moxibustion
  • Tuina Massage
  • Nanaimo Cupping


Cupping is a unique treatment that uses suction to lift the tissues as a cup is moved by the therapist to decompress the underlying tissue. It combines various massage and stretching techniques with the application of a slightly pressurized cup. This helps to lift and separate the soft tissue, allowing for greater fluid movement and nutrient supply throughout the soft tissues. This nourishes, detoxifies, and stimulates the area being treated, and the cups come in various sizes depending on the treatment area.

This treatment helps to increase fluid movement which assists in recovery. Increases nutrient-rich blood supply to injured area to speed up the healing process.  It passively stretches the tissues to improve range of motion.
