Celebrating 15 Years of Improving People's Lives

Finding the right treatment for your pain or illness can be challenging. Most modern medicine is made with the treatment of a group in mind, not the individual. Traditional Chinese medicine is different. When you come in for your first appointment, your Acupuncturist creates a treatment plan based solely on your needs.

Visit our New Patient Intake page to become a Bouchard Wellness client. Whether you need help managing your emotional difficulties, your chronic pain or something else entirely, Bouchard Wellness will be there for you.


Dear client,
Thank you for all your support as we navigate through this pandemic. Due to the fact that my clinic treats some patients that are older and/or immune-compromised, the facial (nose and mouth) mask and safety protocol requirements remain in place to make sure they continue to be protected. I hope you understand the need to maintain a higher level of caution.
The mask is required upon entering the Bouchard Wellness clinic until further notice.

  • If you show the following symptoms, contact your Personal Physician or go to your nearest Emergency Facility. I want to treat every patient to boost their immune system, but an infected patient does not belong in my office right now. Temperature, or symptoms (body aches, fever, cough, shortness of breath) or feeling ill.
  • Maintaining safe distancing will be practiced. See WHO guide here.
  • Per Oriental Medicine’s viewpoint, the best way to keep an immune system strong is to:

    1. Do your best not to live in fear or anxiety about the situation.  Yes, it is a serious matter that requires our attention.  However, it is important to note that when we get trapped in a fear response our immune systems shut down in favor of survival mechanisms, which actually further heighten our anxiety! Be wise and discerning about your lifestyle practices and choices, and trust you are doing what you can to keep yourself and your family safe.
    2. Fresh air is vital to healthy immunity - make a point of getting outside, daily.  Even as little as 10 to 15 minutes three times throughout the day will benefit you.
    3. Rest!  Get plenty of sleep and rest.
    4. Take some time off, perhaps use this time for a personal at-home retreat where you just enjoy some time spent away from work, extra-curricular activities and the hustle and bustle of life.  Walks in nature, healthy dinners together with your family, board games, curling up with a good book and limiting your social contact are all enriching ways to protect yourself from community transmission.
    5. Increase your consumption of anti-oxidant and nutrient-dense infection-fighting foods like: organic blueberries, raspberries, spinach, sprouts, garlic, onions, ginger, parsley, cilantro, spirulina, celery juice, bone broth and fermented foods and beverages.
    6. Drink lots of water. Drinking good quality water and herbal teas, staying hydrated, is one of the best things you can do to flush out toxins from your body and help support the immune system.
    7. Keep your immune system strong by reducing your sugar intake and eating a balanced diet.  Avoid eating processed sugars. Sugar weakens the immune system and makes it less able to deal with viruses and bacteria.  Be sure to read food labels carefully and to limit the amount of sugar you eat.
