Nancy Mongrain, Ac.
Member of the Ordre des Acupuncteurs du Québec (Quebec Acupuncturist Corporation) and of the Association des Acupuncteurs du Québec (Quebec Acupuncturist Association) since 2008. I cumulated 14 years of full time clinic experience.
The path that led me to choose acupuncture as a career started when I was working abroad, where I met different people of many cultures and always wished to create meaningful relationships. At the same time, my vivid interest for alternative health care, helping relation and personal growth drove me to experience myself the major health benefits of acupuncture. A trip to China in 2003 strongly contributed to the reorientation of my career in my mid-thirties. Since, I practice acupuncture with passion and to share those health benefits with my patients rekindles that pleasure every day.
Acupuncture being a medicine that focuses on balance, my clinical approach reflects that in my constant efforts to harmonize the many ancestral concepts with the preoccupations and troubles of the modern life. My work is both thorough and intuitive, at the service of your well-being.
As an acupuncturist and as a front-line health worker, my role is to offer you complete and personalized health services, to sit down with you and listen and to help you find the causes of your health problems and attain your objectives in terms of quality of life.
My goal is, with my devotion, and after obtaining concrete clinical results, to give back quality of life to those who are suffering and to prove on a daily basis that acupuncture is an efficient alternative.

Values & Interests
Chinese medicine is my passion. These values and interests are the basis of my work :
- Empathy, respect and confidentiality, which are key in helping relation.
- Professionalism, continuing education and a drive for research, which allow me to have quite a full “toolbox”.
- Competence to use the most appropriate therapy in a safe and aseptic way.
- Openness to collaborate with other health professionals and to recognize the limits to acupuncture.
- Because each person is unique, the treatment must be personalized.
- Putting a band-aid on a wound is not a logical solution and it will not give your body back its strength and vitality to fight stress and illnesses.
- Keeping some time for a few appointments is a commitment to yourself, for lasting physical and psychological well-being.
- Prevention is your best investment: consulting at the first symptoms will spare you the inconveniences and can reduce the number of treatments that you will need.
- Thinking about it will not always allow you to let yourself go! When your body’s blocks are stronger, addressing it directly might help free your mind!
Our body has great adaptation capacity and self-balancing functions (homéostasis), but we seldom use it and do not believe in it much, because it is not much part of our education, if at all.
