JON MCDONELL, Acupuncturist (R.AC), Herbalist and Reiki Practitioner
Jon graduated from the Grant MacEwan Acupuncture program in 2016. He believes in helping people take charge of their own health by encouraging people to listen to their bodies. The modalities Chinese Medicine offers are very powerful – but true healing happens when patients begin to incorporate healthy lifestyle changes, and healthy ways of thinking outside of the treatment room.
He strives to create a comfortable and relaxed environment in the treatment room — especially for those people who are feeling nervous about needles. You can expect constant communication throughout the entire process. Your comfort comes first.
Jon's areas of interest include the Andrology & Gynaecology, male factor infertility, mental health, sleep, chronic fatigue, urogenital disorders, and gastrointestinal disorders; He is constantly improving his skills in these areas through self-study and continuing education.
Jon is currently completing the East West Professional Herb course and plans on bringing a full herbal dispensary to The Wellness Clinic in the coming year.
He is also working hard to create a safe space for the LGBT+ community here at the clinic in West Edmonton. Jon longs to create a place where communities that are too often neglected by the healthcare system can seek treatment without fear of judgment or bias. Jon has a particular interest in applying Chinese medical theory to Queer and Transgender health.
