"Health and healing comes from within a place of caring. Every person has a voice that needs to be heard, a heart that needs to be nourished and a spirit that needs to be honoured."

About Dr. Lam

Areas of Practice

Cancer Healing Support

Dr. Lam provides supportive treatment for people undergoing cancer therapies. Her approach is knowledgeable and integrated, addressing both the physical aspects of symptom management as well as supporting emotional well-being.

Acupuncture can help to relieve pain, secondary symptoms, and stress by calming the nervous system and bringing the body into a state of deep rest and healing. 


Acupuncture can help prepare the body for conception, maintain good health during pregnancy, and prepare for the birthing process (labour).  It offers treatment when medication cannot be used during pregnancy and assists in a healthy recovery afterwards.

Fertility depends on the good health of both the mother and the father. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are the two most powerful therapies in the TCM scope of practice and have helped many couples conceive.

With TCM, the person and their body is seen as a whole system creating many possibilities for supporting a healthy person and opportunity for conception.

Acupuncture and herbal treatments combined with an understanding of today's modern diseases makes Dr. Karen Lam an exceptional practitioner in addressing all aspects of health.

Offering relief from chronic and acute pain are acupuncture and injective therapies.  They are used to reduce inflammation and free the patient from pain.
