    Stick out your tongue please! As part of diagnostic training students will need to see your tongue. However, it's not safe to stick your tongue out inside. If possible, please take a photo of your tongue before you arrive so the students can view it on your phone.
  • What is a Student Clinic?

    AIM Academy operates Acupuncture, Shiatsu and Chinese Herb Teaching Clinics.
    Treatments are offered throughout the year to the public (except for school holiday times) by our Diploma Program students and are supervised. These treatments have been used to help maintain good health, to prevent ill-health, and to treat a variety of conditions including headaches, neck and shoulder tension, insomnia, fatigue, digestive problems, constipation, and stress.

    Patients are to bring or wear their own loose fitting clothing for treatments and should arrive a few minutes early.

    Traditional Chinese Acupuncture Student Clinic
    Students treating the Acupuncture student clinic have completed the theoretical portion of their training and have been working on one another in a clinic environment. At this time, students begin treating various clients and build upon their knowledge and experience by treating a variety of issues such as: lower back pain, stress, headaches/migraines, menopause, menstrual pain, digestion issues, constipation, insomnia and abdominal pain (just to name a few). Students work in groups of two or less and are closely supervised by highly trained professional instructors.

    This clinic is ideal for those who would like to learn more about their body's condition from an eastern therapeutic perspective.

    Cost

    $20 per session or buy a book of 5 treatments for $75. 

    Missed Appointments & Cancellations

    Missed Appointments
    When you book an appointment with us, that time is set aside for you - and ONLY you. We never double book and we try to always be ready for you when you arrive. In return, we ask that you keep your promise to us and show up for your appointment on time.

    Missed appointments prevent us from catering to other clients.

    That said, our policy is simple. If you do not show up for your scheduled appointment, and you have not notified us at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the treatment as booked. The fee is $20 or if you have a book of 5 you may use one of your coupons (value of $15).

    Cancellations
    In the event that you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment with us, please contact us by phone at least 24 hours prior to your appointment. If you do not reach us, please leave a message on our voice-mail system. If we do not hear from you within this time frame, and you do not keep your appointment, the above policy will be applied.

    Note: We recognize that no one is perfect and there are circumstances that are out of your control (sudden illness, family emergencies, etc.) and so we may make an exception to the above policies on those rare occasions.
