Feel good and find your calm in the heart of downtown Vancouver. 

In our busy world of work deadlines and school drop-offs, productivity hacks, dinner plans and side-hustles, it’s easy to ignore - or completely miss - your body’s subtle signals to slow down. We often don’t realize how long it takes for the painful, frustrating, or debilitating conditions we’re experiencing now, to fully set in. 

The good news?  

Regardless of age, illness, injury, or circumstance, we know - with conviction - that given the right conditions, resources, and support, your body is dynamic and programmed to heal.

Whether you’re recovering from an injury or dealing with chronic illness, struggling to conceive or burdened by digestive trouble, debilitated by migraines or looking for respite from daily stressors, you’re in the right place. 

Since we first opened our doors in 2009 in downtown Vancouver, our mission has remained constant: to provide accessible, holistic healthcare and education that supports your wellbeing - body, mind, and spirit - so you can live without pain, have the energy and vitality to do what you love, and feel fulfilled in every aspect of your life. 

about us

In the spirit of wellbeing from all angles, we offer private and community (group) acupuncture treatments, vitamin injections and biopuncture, food sensitivity testing, live blood analysis, and sound bath healing, as well as wellness-related events and workshops in our new community healing space.

explore our treatments

Collaboration and community are at the root of our practice, and we believe in drawing on the expertise and insight of all our practitioners to deliver the best possible care. Whoever you choose, you can relax knowing that our entire team is supporting your healing. 

Better Together

At Acupoint, you’re never just a number or a problem to be solved. Here, you’re part of our family.

Suka Lang

Owner of Acupoint Wellness Clinic, Suka is on a mission to provide effective, accessible healthcare and healing, with heart. 

“In 10 years of practice, I’ve seen an increase in stress-related illness, anxiety, and feelings of being lost and alone. With our new communal healing space, I’m able to offer more accessible treatments and wellness education, facilitate more connection and community building, and help far more people feel better.” 

To an approach that’s far from transactional, Suka also brings a lifetime of self-healing, compassion, and wisdom to her practice. From an autoimmune disorder to the fifteen years as a professional dancer that left her injured and debilitated as a young adult, Suka’s empathy for physical, emotional, and spiritual suffering is deeply rooted.

Especially passionate about treating pain conditions and sports injuries, Suka’s treatments tend toward a modern style that connects tangibly to the physical body. While she draws on traditional approaches where appropriate, Suka educates her clients with relatable, clearly communicated insights about their bodies. 

Offering encouragement and individualized care every step of the way, Suka loves nothing more than providing a warm, supportive community in which people can heal and step into the most vibrant versions of themselves.

My days of living in California!

Comfort food

Most people would never guess

I grew up in a small logging and fishing community up north - bushwacking and tailgate parties were life back then! 

Can’t live without

Hot sauce, my water bottle, and heating pad.

My bucket list includes

Travelling to Africa and volunteering at an animal sanctuary.

marshall irons

Whether dealing with injury, looking for relaxation or improved mobility, or desiring relief from chronic pain, Marshall will work with you to develop a treatment plan tailored to your needs and goals. 

Fuelled by a strong desire to help others live active and fulfilling lives, Marshall - a former competitive athlete - has firsthand understanding of what it’s like to be debilitated by injury and pain. It’s his own experience of immense relief after a single massage therapy session (following over a year of limited mobility) that inspired Marshall’s eventual career change to RMT.

“I want to be known for providing compassionate and effective treatment. For helping others live a life not dominated by annoying pains and aches.”

With a passion to learn more about the human body and a self-commitment to be better today than yesterday, he aims to not only help his clients achieve symptomatic relief, but to maintain or improve their quality of life - whatever that looks like for each individual. 

Encouraging active participation and open communication throughout, Marshall believes in a client-centered approach to treatment.
