  • “Bruce Park is a complete healer. With the Buddhist background he is very compassionate and his attitude toward his profession is very sincere. He tries to heal you not only with acupuncture needles but with recommended exercises and special diet to root out the cause of pain. I have been seeing him for my neck and lower back pain for a year. I feel much better now and I can enjoy  many activities I could not do before.  During the pain treatments he noticed that my feet and hands are cold and he prescribed a herbal medicine to treat the symptom. I had sweat on feet and suffered from chilblains in winter but thanks to Bruce the sweating on feet reduced drastically and  I am very happy with my feet. Without any reservations I would like to recommend Bruce for aches and pain treatments.”

  • “I was referred to Bruce Park by a friend at work.  I’ve been experiencing sciatic nerve pain due to lower back issue when I first met Bruce.  What I appreciate the most with Bruce is he assesses your entire body every time you see him.  He checks your pulse, your stomach, your skin, blood circulation and he even taught me breathing exercises to help me relax.  There is a focus on my ailment but each treatment will depend on what my body is going through and general well-being.  I highly recommend his services not to mention his home-made ginger tea!”
