Health and Wellness

At the Vancouver Women’s Health Collective we believe in providing a safe space for women to gain access to information and services for their primary health needs and we also provide access to many complementary health and wellness services. Overall health includes the mind, body, and soul.

Nurse Practitioners Clinic

A nurse practitioner is a registered nurse with a graduate education in primary health care who can assume most of the responsibilities once assumed only by a physician. An NP can diagnose and treat minor illnesses, and perform general check-ups and pap testing, prescriptions, HIV and STI testing, specialist referrals and birth control options.

Wellness Counselling

Counselling is a therapeutic relationship between a qualified counsellor and the client. Counselling offers an objective perspective, thus enabling the client to gain insights and strategies to assist in managing their particular situation. A Wellness Counsellor does not provide diagnosis or prescriptions.

Acupuncture is one of the main forms of treatment in traditional Chinese medicine. It involves the use of sharp, thin needles that are inserted in the body at very specific points to treat a wide variety of illnesses and health conditions.
