by Gord Grant Kinesiotape (K tape) or elastic therapeutic tape, really got popular about 10 years ago with professional athletes. The kinesiotaping course that I took at that time focused on rehabilitating injured muscles. But after using it at my clinic for a few months, I soon realized it could have much broader applications, like improving back posture! The magic of how K tape works so well in combination with…
Our Edmonton clinic uses acupuncture with an integrated approach to treat low back pain that creates a lasting improvement and not just short-term relief. Here’s why: The way we do acupuncture focuses first on resetting and improving the function of the core muscles and sinews. At the first treatment we work to reduce the pain sensitivity, which affords the opportunity to have the back heal in the next step. We…
We use acupuncture to strategically your back pain in 3 steps: 1. first, we use acupuncture to relieve back pain by relaxing the painful/tight muscles (the main reason most come to see us!). 2. Second, we use acupuncture to activate the unresponsive, “sleepy” muscles not being engaged as you sit all day. For many you walk out of our clinic with a more responsive back, “reset” and “balanced” for functional…
The recent discovery and greater understanding of the micro-structure and possible functions of the interstitium has been getting a lot of medical media buzz recently. It has even been called a “new” organ, the largest one in the body, representing the connective tissue such as the fascia around and between muscles, and indeed, everywhere else. For me, this represents a very practical missing link in my education which is now…
Many people who want to start getting more active feel overwhelmed by the idea because they do not feel they have enough time, do not know where to start, or have really high expectations for themselves. Unfortunately, this often results in their good intentions never materializing into any action or changed behaviour. I always encourage people to take it slow at first and to remember that something is better than…
The monthly Global TV interview on complementary healthcare for October was with Kendra Tootill. Gord investigated NeuroKinetic Therapy (NKT) with Kendra Toothill. This modality helps her find and retrain muscles that are not firing properly due to old injuries. Read Kendra’s blog about here story of NKT. Enjoying a St. Paddy’s day celebratory beer with a friend was a pivotal moment that catapulted my career into the diversely complex world…
I have always known this to be true: “You don’t know where you’re going until you’ve seen where you’ve been.” Early humans had to move their bodies in many ways to hunt and gather food and water, find and make shelter, and to defend against or attack others to survive. We had plenty of exercise and physical challenges: running, jumping, climbing, throwing, bending, crouching, etc. as we made our way….
Dr. Gord is such a kind soul and his treatments have been so helpful with my anxiety, chronic pain and overall wellbeing. His honey is also delicious and the clinic has such a calming atmosphere! Thank you
Gord is an incredibly knowledgeable and kind practitioner that I’ve been seeing for acupuncture for 10+ years. I always leave my session feeling better and inspired by our conversation. Acupuncture treatments from the Turning Point has benefitted my overall health and has improved some physical discomfort in my muscles.
Very very pleased with my first time experience with Gord. I went in for acupuncture therapy but it was WAY more than that. He truly is in it to genuinely help people, whether it be one thing or another, he is all in. Really takes the time to get to know you and dig deep into how to REALLY help you. Not just a quick fix and out the door. I felt heard and really connected throughout my entire session. Gord is a very educated, compassionate and knowledgeable man.
Gordon is amazing. He is extremely knowledgeable and thorough. I can tell he loves what he does and is extremely passionate about helping people. He took the time to get to know me and treated me as a whole. I went in with two concerns I wanted help with but he ended up helping me with many others. I left feeling so supported and inspired. I highly recommend seeing him!
As always, Gord hooks it up!! My leg and hip feels amazing already!! I also got some take home stretches and exercises to keep my sciatica in check. GORD... you are truly amazing!! Thank you again!!! 😊
Had to bring my mom in because of her back issues. Gord accommodated and agreed to help early morning. He was so kind throughout, made sure my mom was okay. He even showed us exercises to be completed to get rid of the pain. He’s gone above and beyond for us, highly recommended
I have visited Dr. Grant recently and as usual he went above and beyond addressing my recent shoulder issues!Above regular maintenance with acupuncture session and cupping he spent great deal of time working on my rotator cuff and supraspinatus! He is a mountain of knowledge!I highly recommend Acupuncture Turning Point and Dr.Grant!CheersMarcin

Always have a good experience when i go and see Gord. Very Knowledgeable, he takes you through what he is doing and how this will help. I just came in with a knee injury and left feeling better then i have in weeks. Cant go wrong going and seeing Gord.
I had my first session with Gord recently and he surpassed my expectations. Very kind provider and does all he can to help with whatever problem you come to him with. And what a beautiful set up he has!
Marisha Did a fabulous job ! I was nervous about getting a massage again as the person I saw before put me in alot of pain after. I will definitely be returning she definitely makes you feel comfortable 😺
I could hardly walk with my nearly completely destroyed knees, they were so bad that even my family doctor and physiotherapist after seeing my MRI results were all shocked I wasn’t in a wheelchair, crutches or on pain killers!After 4 sessions with Gord and my massage therapist my knees have improved significantly, to the point I can even do light sprinting and jogging again!
Gordon is a total pro! He is very knowledgeable, and I always leave my appointments pain free. As an athlete, I really appreciate his understanding my unique needs. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for treatment.
I cannot say enough good things about Marisha. I visited her early on in my pregnancy for a prenatal massage as I was suffering from terrible back pain and have visited her every two weeks since. I'm 34 weeks pregnant now, and she gave me my life back over these last 8 months. Thank you so much Marisha!
Gord is amazing he has much knowledge and has excellent advises on how to keep a healthy body. His treatment helped me greatly to get back on the path of recovery. Will be seeing you again, Thank you!Update: After continuing my treatment with Gord and taking his advice towards my physical practices , I am now pain free!! Gord set me to the path of recovery and I can't thank him enough for all his help!
I have severe Degenerative Disk decease at a young age from being a trucker. I was in agony for multiple days. So I decided to give Dr. Grant at Turning Point a try. In our first session he set me on a speedy road to recovery. I felt much better and able to go into work the next day. His insight and advice along with some vacuum cupping, acupuncture, heat lamp, and electrode stimulation relieved me quickly in ways I only dreamed possible.
