At Altitude we are focused on maximizing quality time with our patients. We book on a half hour schedule to ensure that we have the time to properly assess and treat their injuries. After living and working in Banff for many years both Rebecca and Fabienne have a deep understanding of our community’s therapeutic needs, from educating housekeeping staff on proper lifting mechanics, treating repetitive strain injuries of retail staff to dealing with acute orthopaedic trauma in our mountain enthusiasts.
Altitude can communicate in French, German and Spanish and we are able to provide Chinese and Korean translators. We are excited to be working in this new environment and look forward to seeing you in our new clinic.

Acupuncture involves the use of extremely thin sterile needles to reduce or relieve pain. The needles are inserted into specific points on the body that have been shown to correspond with specific points in your body’s nervous system. The stimulation of these nervous system points can result in pain relief, general relaxation and restoration of the nervous system’s normal state.
