Dr. Ciara Buchan is absolutely unbelievable with how good shes able to detect whats going on with your body, she can literally just look at your tongue and tell you problems you've been having with your body without even telling her, shes very thorough in the initial appointment and listens to every single thing thats bothering you. shes very easy going and has good energy. she was able to treat my chronic back pain i have had for 10 years almost completely to a fix, my back is stronger, feels more balanced and its not as tender/weak and sore. My posture is better my energy levels are better and i feel super euphoric after finishing up one of her sessions, she also helped me with my digestive issues and allowing more blood flow to areas i have previously injured such as my shoulder to heal.Ciara is awesome and shes very knowledgable and professional. For anyone who has any problems she can help. I wouldn't hesitate to give her a try!! Thank you ciara!!!!!

I have been going to Red Leaf now for about a month and i couldn't be happier with the service. Very professional, and i feel "personalized". I have been receiving treatment for allergies and snoring and it is working. Proof? The wife has not been sleeping in the other room for over a month. Thank you so much Red Leaf Wellness. Tom

It's challenging to quantify what exact benefits I've received from acupuncture and cupping, provided by Yoko Masuda. But, I'm going to try! The effects have been quiet, yet transformative. Yoko is an intuitive, thoughtful person who notices small variations and intricacies of the body and mind, and finds a way of helping you overcome them both physically and mentally with her practice. I am always excited to go meet with her, knowing that my body will thank me for it all week and that she also usually has suggestions for me that improve the quality of my mental/spiritual life. Having never done any kind of acupuncture or cupping before, I have nothing else to compare her service to, but I have to say that the effects have impacted my self-esteem and the way that I care for and carry my body. I have so many good things to say about Yoko Masuda. If you've ever considered acupuncture or cupping, she's certainly a worthy consideration and will likely shock you with her quiet observations in extremely pleasant ways. If you're reading this, best of luck to you in healing whatever ails you. :)

My husband and I discovered Red Leaf Wellness about one month ago. My husband had acupuncture in the past with positive results. So he wanted to try it again. I was more than a little skeptical but I gave it a try. I'm no longer a skeptic! Tammy has done wonders for my neck and upper back pain! We see Julie for massage therapy. Julie is amazing as well! Tammy and Julie are very personable. It's important to click with your practitioner and I feel like I do. I felt comfortable almost immediately! Between these two practitioners we are both moving in the right direction!The whole clinic atmosphere is warm and inviting. The staff are friendly and welcoming. I'm also learning a bit about essential oils and trying new supplements to help my digestive issues. If they add a naturopath to the clinic, it will be my one stop shop for many years to come!Give them a try!!

I stumbled across the Red Leaf Wellness website as I was searching for alternatives to a prescription for my menopause symptoms. I can't express how thankful I am I did. After my first appointment with Ciara of accupuncture and Reiki my life has dramatically shifted for the better. And gets better with every appointment. I can sleep, eat, the brain fog has lifted, and the hot flashes no longer rule my life. I feel like my old self again. I am so excited for my next appointment like a kid at a candy store. Every experience from the warm welcome coming in the beautiful clean office, to online booking and reminders have been 110% positive. Thank you Ciara for being such an amazing practitioner!!

I was here and saw Galina ! Wow, I wish I would of found her before using up most of my benefits for the year. She really focused on getting you to a relaxed state and enjoying every minute of your experience. I walked out relaxed and the tension I had been carrying in my shoulders had all but melted away after my massage. I even slept last night (rare for me) I can't even begin to express what an amazing hour I had..... definitely book for a 90 minute session, you will not be disappointed.

Tammy is truly amazing. She warmly welcomed me at first and has continued to with the same energy throughout my time attending Red Leaf Wellness. She was helpful with giving treatments, recommending exercises and supplements to help me overcome my concussion symptoms. Tammy’s compassion should also be noted. I highly recommend Tammy and Red Leaf Wellness. Thank you Tammy!

Very pleasant atmosphere as soon as you walk through the door. Greeted by the lovely, Aly. Very pleasant to chat with. And then there is Tammy, the light of the clinic. She is sweet, gentle, and beautiful inside and out. Such a caring lady - it really shows. I feel very comfortable and relaxed when having my acupuncture. Love the massage machine and the cupping. When I am done my session, I feel so good and relaxed as if I was in a spa. No kidding! I am booked for more treatments and massage. Can't wait. I would recommend Red Leaf Clinic to anyone. You will not regret it.

I cannot say enough good things about the entire staff at Red Leaf Wellness, from the administrative team to all of the health care professionals - even fellow clients are so kind to one another. I suggest this place to everyone and whenever I twist or turn the wrong way, they are my first call. Sarah is always so incredibly helpful, uplifting and detail orientated. Tammy and Ciara have changed my life completely. I know the reviews here sound too good to be true, I remember first looking at them before going a couple years ago and thinking there’s no way, but I swear to you each one of us is being completely honest. Red Leaf Wellness is so impactful, has a great energy and is unlike any other office of its kind. If you get the opportunity to have members of their staff be apart of your care team, you are very very lucky. A million out of ten would recommend.

After dealing with multiple miscarriages and no answers from doctors about a cause, I wanted to try other options. I came to Tammy after a referral from a friend who used acupuncture for pain control--something that measurably worked for her--and said she knew other couples with similar infertility trouble who'd gotten help from Tammy.I was so nervous. Acupuncture was something I thought I'd never do because of my anxiety around needles. But after having a meeting with Tammy, talking about my health and how she'd treat me, I felt so much relief. Tammy walked me through everything, that she was there to help regulate hormones and give my body the best chance it could. Not guaranteeing miracles obviously, but getting the hormones moving correctly again. She was very understanding and compassionate. The needles were ok! After I got used to the feeling they were totally fine, and Tammy always made sure I felt comfortable, relieving any anxiety.Now we're expecting a healthy baby! If you're here looking at acupuncture because of infertility, Tammy helped my body regulate itself to give it the best chance it could. I highly recommend her!

Red Leaf Wellness has provided me much needed relief! I have always had issues with my shoulders being tight. I have enjoyed massage and regular chiropractic regularly throughout the years, but always with temporary relief. I had a very painful episode near the beginning of this pandemic and was very thankful that Tammy was able to accept me as a patient.I believe it has definately enriched my overall quality of life. I have received acupuncture, massage and nutritional supplements from Red Leaf and am extremely happy with all results and pricing.Appointments are easy to make, and you have 2 locations to choose from.Thank you for your service and look forward to watching your success flourish!

I have never had acupuncture and i chose this location because it was very close to work. I have had multiple mva's and sports injuries that are interfering with my current fitness goals. I am also diabetic and am beginning to have poorer circulation as i get older. Even after the first visit i could tell that this was a perfect choice. Tammy and her team are absolutely fantastic! She informed me what she was going to be doing so by step and step and why. She continues to go above and beyond my expectations. Now that i have had multiple treatments, my circulation is better, i'm not as cold and and getting results now in the gym. All of her recommendations (diet, fitness and supplementation) are helping immensely and i am very excited for my future treatments. What a difference in a such a short period of time. My hat is off to Tammy and her team, well done and keep up the great work!

I came to Red Leaf Wellness about 2 years ago in search of alternative ways to heal & feel better. I cannot say enough about this amazing clinic. The second I walk in the door, I begin to feel better as I hear the beautiful music & smell the lovely essential oils. It is a very healing & calming refuge to step into when you are not feeling well. Everyone is so kind. Tammy puts me at ease right away & listens and responds to my concerns in a way that no other health provider has ever done. She listens so deeply & you feel very "heard"--that alone is therapeutic. And it feels a bit like magic the minute she starts placing the acupuncture needles in. I can feel the pain & stress start to melt away within minutes. I consider Tammy to be a permanent part of my healthcare team & I would highly recommend her & her clinic to anyone who wants to heal & experience complementary approaches to their existing treatment plan.

I have nothing but great things to say about Tammy and her entire staff. I contacted Red Leaf Wellness to seek relief from continuous allergies and Tammy immediately put me at ease by listening carefully to my concerns and by explaining and answering my many questions. It was my first acupuncture experience so I was a bit uncertain of what to expect. I noticed a difference after the first visit and after only a few more sessions I can hardly believe I no longer need to take daily allergy medication. The treatment plan was clearly laid out from the initial visit and was followed with no deviation. Tammy was very personable as was Melanie who covered off one session in Tammy's absence. I am thrilled with the result and would recommend anyone who suffers from allergies to contact Red Leaf Wellness.

We look forward to our continued treatment.

I don't normally trust "alternative" types of medicine, but after pharmaceuticals failed, I went to Melanie Morrill for assistance with pain/numbness from a compressed nerve. She succeeded in healing the problem when nothing else was working. She also helped with other issues, such as my migraines and chronic stomach pain. She is a true expert in her field, and her bedside manner is extraordinary.

I have had an excellent experience with Melanie Morrill! I experienced a totally unexpected bout of peroneal tendonitis and was having a difficult time walking due to sharp pain in my left foot. Melanie treated me with various techniques, including electro-acupuncture, and adapted a holistic approach to my healing. Tendonitis is tricky and it really helps to have someone with the knowledge and genuine interest in your health assisting with your treatment. If I asked a question and she didn't know the answer, she would have an answer for me the next time that we met. Efforts much appreciated during such a frustrating time! Thanks!

Acupuncture with Tammy is so much more than needs and acupuncture - not only has she been able to get me leveled out with my menopause challenges, but has been helping with my psoas pain and I have seen great gains. I especially appreciated my initial phone call and first appointment with Tammy - she took a lot of time to answer my questions, explaining exactly the process.

I had my first acupuncture treatment with Melanie. I was was guided step by step in what to expect. Melanie went through my whole medical history and asked specific questions. She was personable, knowledgeable and kind. The 30 minute assessment made me feel comfortable and I felt valued as a customer. The acupuncture was very relaxing, I felt tingling in a few spots and it was a great experience. I definitely will be coming back.

Caring for people is my passion and one of the greatest callings life has to offer.  I am a seasoned Paramedic and Acupuncturist with extensive experience assisting patients as they cope with obvious and invisible injuries. I have been there for those in desperate medical, psychological or traumatic situations, delivered beautiful babies in vehicles parked along the side of the road, and administered care in such odd locations as on a domestic airliner at 30,000 feet or when flying emergency medevacs over Arabian desertscapes. I know full well how to care for those in true crisis but have also witnessed so many more whose illnesses and injuries could be traced back to their treatment of the body as a whole, whether through their diet, fitness levels, or neglect. As my career has evolved, so has my focus, which has shifted to helping a greater number of people early on to prevent minor issues from evolving into larger and costlier illnesses.  In my practice I have found a niche offering by pairing these strengths in emergency care and women’s health with the respected skills and techniques from top practitioners in oriental medicine. All care is focused on returning the body, mind, and spirit to a whole.

My academic preparation closely incorporates oriental medicine with Western healthcare. My passions build on natural strengths in highly stressful complex interactions, care management, and treatment of anxiety, depression and PTSD – particularly amongst Armed Forces and Emergency Services personnel. Within North America and the Middle East I have enjoyed a long standing career as a respected clinician, clinical educator, fire and emergency medical dispatcher.  I hold active licensure with the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), the College of Acupuncturists of Alberta (CAA) and the California Acupuncture Board.  I am a past Board Director with the Alberta Pain Society and a present member of the CAA Competence Committee.

  • Doctorate of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine (DACM), American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine
