Gary Chan
Registered Acupuncturist


Musculoskeletal pain, migraines, anxiety, sleep disorders, gynecological issues and other physical and mental ailments can take away your strength and joy. By combining Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and energy healing, Gary Chan allows you to strip away the power of illnesses so you can recover, rejuvenate, and restore balance to your body and mind.

Gary is a top-rated holistic health practitioner in New Westminster with over 12 years of experience. He graduated from the International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine of Vancouver and is licensed by the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of British Columbia (CTCMA).

After gaining his diploma in 2006, Gary interned at a hospital in China and a private clinic in Hong Kong. He is the author behind “Living a Happy Life in an Unhappy World”, a mental wellness book showcasing the benefits of Chinese medicine. Dr Tan’s Balance Method, Pulse Regulating Acupuncture, Original Yin Stretching Method, Auricular Medicines, Reiki Energy Healing, and Transformation with Matrix Energetic are just some of the other therapies he is certified in.

Before entering the healthcare realm, Gary worked as a computer programmer. He had no experience with TCM until he developed severe pain in one of his upper teeth. His dentist said the pain was caused by an inflamed nerve and that a root canal would solve the problem. Gary decided to think about it as this extreme procedure would cause much discomfort and cost a fortune. He left the dentist and went to the pharmacy to pick up some painkillers. During his visit, the pharmacist on duty told Gary to try acupuncture.

Gary thought he had nothing to lose and went to see an acupuncturist right away. The day after his first treatment, he was shocked to experience an 80 per cent decrease in pain. After taking a herbal concoction for another day, Gary was completely relieved of his toothache. This transformative experience sparked Gary’s interest in acupuncture and eventually led him to pursue a career in holistic health.

Besides TCM, Gary is passionate about spirituality and believes building meaningful relationships is key to living a fulfilling life. During his free time, he enjoys playing board games and disc golf with friends and family. He also loves hanging out with this cat.

Gary is fluent in English, Cantonese, and Mandarin.

We are Open

Our focus is to keep you, and our RTT family of healthcare professionals and support staff, safe and healthy. In order to do this, we have made a number of very important changes to our usual way of doing business. Until the pandemic is over the following will be our “new normal”:

Certain practitioners will be back to work during this time and others will not be working in order to limit the amount of staff in the clinic. Please be patient if your therapist is not available right away. Please check our online booking platform to see when your favourite practitioner will be returning.

  • Verbal and written COVID-19 pre-screening questions will be done as a part of your appointment booking and at the time of your treatment.
  • Patients are asked to bring their own personal disposable mask or cloth face covering. Please wear them into the clinic and face-masks will be mandatory to get your treatments. All of our staff will be wearing them as well.
  • Patients are asked to come alone as our waiting rooms will have limited seating.
  • All patients will be required to wash their hands before and after treatment.
  • Please arrive a couple of minutes before your treatment time.
  • We have enhanced our sanitization/ disinfection protocols with COVID-19 rated cleaning products. All contact surfaces will be cleaned after use.
  • We will provide as much touch-less payment processing as possible. This will include direct billing to your insurers, tap card payments, or you can have your credit card automatically charged by setting it up on your secure account profile. This can be done on your on-line account profile or our administrative support team can assist you. NO CASH is being accepted.

Please know we are doing everything possible to provide you with a safe, relaxing, and problem-free experience. We look forward to seeing you soon.  If you have any questions, please email us at or by phone at 604-437-7777. You can also text us on your mobile by clicking the button below:
