About Red Leaf Wellness: Leading Integrative Healthcare in Edmonton


Welcome to Red Leaf Wellness, nestled at the crossroads of Edmonton’s Glenora and Old Westmount districts. As a beacon of integrative healthcare, we seamlessly blend ancient Eastern wisdom with modern Western medical practices. Our journey began at the esteemed Hoag Hospital in Southern California, specifically within their renowned Womanology department. Recognized as one of the leading healthcare providers in the United States, Hoag set a foundational standard of excellence for us. From these humble beginnings, we have evolved into a progressive wellness clinic, renowned for its unique approach to holistic healing. At Red Leaf Wellness, we don’t just treat symptoms; we delve deep to understand the root causes, ensuring our patients receive comprehensive care tailored to their individual needs.

Our Vision

In a world where healthcare often feels fragmented and impersonal, we envision a future where patients are empowered, informed, and at the center of an integrative care orchestra. Through our unique blend of social value, innovation, integrative care, and environmental responsibility, we aim to redefine healthcare not just in Alberta but across Canada and beyond. We will expand our footprint, offering a diverse array of clinical and digital health services both within and beyond our clinic’s walls. We aspire to be recognized as a beacon of excellence, inclusivity, and social profitability in the healthcare landscape, always prioritizing partnerships and collaboration.

Our Mission

At Red Leaf Wellness, we are more than just a clinic. We are a hub of innovative, integrative health service delivery. With our roots in Edmonton, our mission is to place patients at the heart of everything we do, offering a diverse array of complementary care options and empowering them to make informed decisions. We are deeply committed to serving senior citizens, LGBTQ+, First Nations, and other marginalized and underserved groups, ensuring that every individual, regardless of their background, has access to the highest quality of care.

Our dedication extends beyond just our patients. We treat our social and environmental impact as a primary measure of success for our business, prioritizing it even in cases where it may not drive profitability. Operating with paperless systems and championing digital health, we are fervently committed to reducing our carbon footprint and making a positive environmental impact.

We pride ourselves on being nimble, tech-savvy, and forward-thinking, always seeking ways to provide social value. Our commitment to continuous learning ensures we remain at the forefront of healthcare innovation.

Beyond our clinical services in Alberta, we extend our reach nationally and internationally through our online apothecary and digital media services. We believe in the strength of partnerships and collaboration, viewing others in our space as collaborators rather than competitors. Our long-term goals encompass expanding our presence in multiple Canadian jurisdictions, introducing unique service lines, and supporting our peers and partners through advisory and business support services.

In everything we do, our trifecta focus ensures we stand apart, offering a value proposition that goes beyond mere clinical care.

How does Red Leaf Wellness differ from other clinics?2023-09-20T00:01:39+00:00

Red Leaf Wellness stands out in the healthcare landscape for several reasons:

  • True Integrative Healthcare: While many clinics may claim to offer integrative healthcare, we genuinely embody it in our practice. It’s not just a title for us; it’s our ethos.
  • Authentic Acupuncture Expertise: Many clinics might offer acupuncture, but only those governed by the College of Acupuncturists can rightfully call themselves acupuncturists. This distinction is crucial because while other health disciplines might be certified in skills like dry needling, only registered acupuncturists with the College of Acupuncturists of Alberta have undergone rigorous training, ensuring depth and expertise in their practice. Even rarer is to find practitioners holding a graduate level Doctorate of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, trained extensively not just in acupuncture but also in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
  • Innovation at the Forefront: In a profession deeply rooted in ancient traditions, we stand out with our unique focus on innovation. We believe in harnessing cutting-edge advancements to drive better patient outcomes, setting us apart from many traditional clinics.
What is integrative healthcare?2023-08-29T00:02:44+00:00

Integrative healthcare is a holistic approach to wellness that combines traditional and modern medical practices. At its core, it’s about treating the whole person — mind, body, and spirit — rather than just addressing isolated symptoms. It recognizes that each individual’s health and well-being are influenced by various factors, including physical, emotional, and environmental elements.

At Red Leaf Wellness, our embodiment of integrative healthcare is evident in the diverse range of services we offer. From acupuncture, which has its roots in ancient Eastern traditions, to functional medicine, which delves deep into modern diagnostic techniques to uncover root causes of health issues, we seamlessly blend the old with the new.

Our specialized integrative care programs further highlight our commitment to this holistic approach. Whether it’s our Pain Management Program, which employs a trifecta of treatments from acupuncture to clinical hypnotherapy, or our Fertility Program that combines fertility acupuncture with holistic nutrition and clinical hypnotherapy, we ensure that every aspect of an individual’s health is considered.

Moreover, our emphasis on both Eastern and Western modalities, such as Traditional Chinese Medicine and naturopathic medicine, showcases our belief in harnessing the best of both worlds. This comprehensive approach ensures that our patients receive the most effective care tailored to their unique needs.

In essence, integrative healthcare at Red Leaf Wellness is about weaving together the best practices from various medical traditions, backed by evidence and expertise, to provide a personalized and holistic path to wellness.
