What’s Good in Our Neighbourhood Community Clinic
Donate-What-You-Want acupuncture treatment
By Appointment only – fourth Sunday of every month at 10:00am – 2:30pm
100% of the proceeds will be donated to local not-for-profit organizations.
What’s Good in Our Neighbourhood is a community health initiative with the following goals in mind:
- Make acupuncture, a life changing treatment, accessible to as many people in our community as possible by reducing financial barriers and providing an opportunity for essential self care.
- Acknowledge our power and privilege; use it to increase health equity and do what we can to help counter the massive weight of systemic oppression.
- Acknowledge that we live and practice on land stolen from Indigenous nations and begin our reparations
- Support local organizations doing the work to empower Black, Indigenous & People of Colour (BIPOC), dismantle systemic racism, oppression, and marginalization (100% of the proceeds to What’s Good in Our Neighbourhood will be donated to these organizations).
This month proceeds from What’s Good in Our Neighbourhood will go to benefit Halton Black Voices.
“Halton Black Voices is a new grassroots collective, intended to bring youth, families and individuals together. Our purpose is to create a safe space in the Halton region for all Black people including the 2SLGBTQQIA community, where we can establish new connections. We aim to build stronger communities by raising awareness, educating, and empowering Black community members of all ages. We also intend to connect with allies for reciprocal educational opportunities, with the intention of creating spaces of mutual understanding and respect.
Our struggle for equity is bound together with the struggles of Indigenous communities of the land where many of our ancestors were transported and enslaved. Indigenous liberation is a prerequisite for Black liberation, so the work of Halton Black Voices will be closely tied to our Indigenous community members in Halton.”

“Katrina was a fantastic resource during my pregnancy and was so skilled at providing acupressure treatment for me. She even taught my husband pressure points to ease discomfort during labour. Everyone at the clinic is so friendly and it’s a very warm and welcoming environment. And the food is delicious! Charleston is a phenomenal chef and so personable. What’s Good is just what Oakville needs!“
