What is CHIP

The Complementary Health Integration Project (CHIP) is a public-funded initiative focused on providing Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) services and expanding research on the effectiveness of such services in improving
pain management, mental health, and addiction-related health issues.

Alberta residents under the age of 24 or above 55 may be qualified to receive CAM treatments free of charge.

Our Patient’s feedbacks

I have problems sleeping at night–don’t know if that’s stress related or pain related, but probably a combination of both. The first time I came, I slept through the night. I’d never done that before in 20-30 years. I always woke up once or twice, but after the first treatment I slept for 6 hours straight. Sleeping has really improved.

CHIP Patient James*

This program definitely helped me. I work at home, so I always have neck, shoulder, and back pain from working at home hunched over the computer all day. I’ve had acupuncture before, but it’s just different here. You feel instant relief, and it works and seems like it goes for a longer term. I can work longer, I don’t feel as stiff, so that definitely helped.

CHIP Patient Carol *

I have a 24/7 feeding tube and zero stomach. I have very complex medical issues. CHIP acupuncture balances me. It really has helped me, 90 to 95 percent. For someone like me with such complex medical issues…it’s the difference between being independent–living on your own, living a happy productive life–and being in long term care. To me that is everything.
