So where does the name Element 7 Wellness come from?

We’ve heard some interesting guesses.
The name came organically as a group of us were discussing what our vision is for a healing center. We wrote down all the elements of wellness that we could think of and came up with 7. Element 7 Wellness was born that day, although our collective dream of an integrated wellness center started long before.

Our goal
is to provide a safe, grounded and healing environment for patients to share their story. We acknowledge that every patient will encounter hardship in every element somewhere along their journey.

There are many different types
of practitioners needed from each of the elements to act as our teachers, mentors and guides. Element 7 Wellness promotes wellness and acknowledgement of all the elements, but ultimately is primarily focused on physical and mental elements. In time, our goal is to create a healing center where all the elements can be addressed by a collaborative group of providers in the same location. Currently, we honor and recognize other practitioners and resources available to address each individual element below.


Physical wellness focuses primarily on maintaining and/or optimizing of the systems of the body (functional medicine), as well as prevention of illness, and treatment of current symptoms or conditions.

AcupunctureTraditional Chinese Medicine (TCM):

TCM is the general term for the style of acupuncture
which most acupuncturists are trained in, at least initially, and the style which most people practice. As this is the most foundational grouping there is a broad range of techniques used and treatment protocols. Most recent clinical studies regarding acupuncture usually use treatment techniques and/or protocols based on TCM Theory.

Mental / Emotional

Mental wellness affects how well we process, remember, and integrate information, as well how we interact with the world.

Certain imbalances in our biochemistry and our genetics can play a major role in our mental functioning and capacity.

Emotional wellness affects our openness,
our willingness to try new things, how we interact with our family, friends, and others. Emotional freedom and expression are important for the full expression of who we are. Whether untangling the awkward hard-wired emotions from our past or learned behaviours as an adult, emotional dysfunction is often at least a component of most healing.

Emotional Freedom Technique
EFT is a powerful self-help method based on research showing that emotional trauma contributes greatly to disease. Clinical trials have shown that EFT is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress. Once the distress is reduced or removed, the body can often rebalance itself, and accelerate healing.

Spiritual wellness is finding meaning in life events, demonstrating individual purpose and having the ability to be compassionate towards others.

Spirituality is unique to each individual.
Your “spirit” usually refers to the deepest part of you, the part that lets you make meaning of your world. Your spirit provides you with the revealing sense of who you are, why you are here and what your purpose for living is. It is that innermost part of you that allows you to gain strength and hope.

Spiritual wellness may not be something that you think much of,
yet its impact on your life is unavoidable. The basis of spirituality is discovering a sense of meaningfulness in your life and coming to know that you have a purpose to fulfill.
