About Us – Meet Ariella Meinhard, R.Ac, R.TCMP


Welcome to Elemental Acupuncture!


My private practice is based on getting to know you & building a relationship of trust. My goal is to help you find natural, safe, and effective solutions for your health concerns.


Before working as an acupuncturist, my background was in Community Health & International Development. After completing five full years of study in acupuncture & Chinese herbal medicine at the Institute of Traditional Medicine in Toronto, I continued to pursue post-graduate training and one-on-one mentorship with expert practitioners and renowned teachers including:

  • Kiiko Matsumoto – Japanese Acupuncture
  • Lorie Eve Dechar – Alchemical Acupuncture
  • Debra Betts – Obstetric Acupuncture
  • Mikio Sankey – Esoteric Acupuncture


With ongoing training and clinical experience, I have developed a special interest and expertise working in the field of Women’s Health, Pregnancy Care, and Mental-Emotional Health. I have also worked as an instructor & clinical supervisor at both the Institute of Traditional Medicine and Eight Branches Academy.


In 2011, I was able to spend 4 months providing volunteer acupuncture services to underserved populations in Nepal at the Vajra Varahi Health Clinic and later supervised a clinical externship for Canadian students of acupuncture & herbal medicine at the same clinic.


I look forward to getting to know you and supporting you on your journey towards better health!
