Third Place: Advanced Wellness Centre
If you've never had acupuncture, let Remee Gemo clear up a few things. No, it's not painful. And yes, it works. The Acupuncture Center of Richmond aims to relieve you head to toe, anxiety to arthritis. Recently the center started providing facial rejuvenation, in which tiny needles are used to encourage skin to create more elastin and collagen. "It's not like a complete facelift," explains Gemo, the center's co-owner. "You still look like yourself, just five years ago." Acupuncturists can even come to your house or office. The center also offers Chinese bodywork, reflexology, cupping and a herbal pharmacy. Readers' second-place pick, Back in Action Chiropractic Center, offers a range of health treatments to help athletes — and everyone else — get back in the game. In third, the Advanced Wellness Centre is an all-in-one destination for acupuncture, hypnotherapy and massage.
