Dr. Rankin's Methods

Combining the best of Western and Eastern Medicine to provide individualized care that is unique to you

I have been providing patient-focused care for over 20 years. Depending on the unique needs of each patient, I use both my Western and Eastern education to provide a balanced and tailored approach. Balance is a key pillar within Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which incorporates the use of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine/formulas, tuina massage and various modalities or tools. TCM has been used to treat people of all ages from newborns to seniors. The longer I have been in practice, the more I have focused on TCM methods.

I am a graduate of the University of Toronto, the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College and completed studies at the Toronto School of Traditional Chinese Medicine. I finished further graduate studies at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, completing a Fellowship in Rehabilitation Sciences which focused on the treatment and rehabilitation of injuries and prevention of health problems through exercise and other active, patient-driven techniques. I am one of only one hundred chiropractors in Canada to have this unique specialization.

A lifelong learner, my holistic approach to care is one of a healer and a teacher, ensuring you understand your unique care plan, and that you have guidance and support on your path to wellness.

I can help with

Stress and Anxiety

This affects everyone at some point. I use acupuncture or acupressure, herbs and traditional exercises, like Tai Chi and Qi Gong, to help teach you to manage and use this energy in a more positive way.


Are you suffering from a "long" fatigue? Many people are these days. I use acupuncture and herbs to help improve and build back your energy levels.


Feeling stuck? Sensitive to foods you once loved? I use acupuncture or acupressure, herbs and traditional exercises, like Tai Chi and Qi Gong, to help improve your digestion and get you moving!

Women's Health


Menopause, infertility, and menstrual health.

I use acupuncture or acupressure, herbs and traditional exercises like Tai Chi and Qi Gong to balance the the body.  



Sleep is so essential to our wellbeing. Let's figure out why you are not getting a restful sleep. Once we know why, we can tailor an approach using acupuncture, herbs or gentle exercise to help.

Chronic Pain and Dysfunction

Chronic pain and dysfunction are too common.  Let's get a good understanding of why your body is unable to move past this problem and develop a plan to get you moving right.  I often begin with physical therapies and teach specific and proper technique for the exercises.

"I started seeing Dr. Rankin following months and months of dead treatments from numerous doctors.  Within a few weeks of seeing Dr. Rankin for acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine I saw huge improvements and after a few months my symptoms have all but cleared and have not returned.

He has been attentive, compassionate and above all very knowledgeable.  I would highly recommend him and his services."
