Familiar with alternative medicine? We’ve heard good things about it too, and have rounded up our picks for the best naturopaths in Winnipeg.
For this list, we’ve taken a look at clinics with different specialties in natural healing. Our selection is based on the professional standing of their practitioners, client satisfaction, and quality of service.
Down the line, we’ll also answer some common questions about naturopathy. But first―let’s talk about rates.
How much do naturopathic services cost in Winnipeg?
Because we all combat diseases in different ways, naturopathy can be a very personal experience. However, the main goal stays the same, and that’s to condition the body for self-healing.
To help you get there, naturopathic doctors (NDs) will often administer non-invasive treatments and even prescribe botanical medicine.
Here are some of the common services in this field, along with how much they cost on average:
|Initial Consultation (Oncology or Lyme Disease)||$300|
|Initial Consultation (General Naturopathy)||$260|
|Initial Consultation (Nutrition)||$110|
|Follow-ups||$50 – $220 per session|
|Pediatric Consultation||Less 30%|
|Phone Consultation||$3 per 5 minutes|
|Remedial and Prenatal Massage Therapy||$80 – $100 per hour|
|IV Therapy||$90 – $100 per IV drip|
|Lymphatic Drainage Therapy||$90 per hour|
|Herbal Medicine||$30 – $50 per month’s worth of supply|
Usually, initial appointments take up to 90 minutes, while follow-up sessions can range from 15-75 minutes depending on your treatment plan.
As of now, naturopathic treatments aren’t covered by Manitoba Healthcare. However, it’s becoming more popular as a package extension with private insurance providers.
Best Naturopathic Clinics in Winnipeg
Now that we’ve browsed the general price list, here are our picks for the best naturopaths in Winnipeg.
1. The Nature Doctors Inc.
|BEST FOR||Holistic wellness|
|SERVICES||Naturopathic Medicine, Nurse Practitioner, Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Registered Massage Therapy, Counselling|
|ADDRESS||1200 Waverly St. #7, Winnipeg MB R3T 0P4, Canada|
|CONTACT DETAILS||Phone: 204-943-6079|
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday, Thursday, Friday: 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM |
Tuesdays: 9:00 AM – 7:00 PM
Wednesdays: 9:00 AM – 8:00 PM
Saturdays: by appointment only
As the name suggests, The Nature Doctors isn’t just one ND but a group. They’re all available for appointments full-time, making them the largest naturopathic clinic in Manitoba.
A full staff and long hours make scheduling a breeze. They’re open all week and even allow Saturday appointments if needed.
Their integrated healthcare team is composed of 14 naturopaths. So, whether you’re healing from an illness or seeking preventative care, they’re likely to have someone who can come up with a treatment plan for you.
Their services support the treatment of cancer, infectious diseases, digestive complaints, and more. They also offer to test you for a wide range of health concerns such as bacterial overgrowth, allergies, and heavy metals, to name just a few.
If you want to rid yourself of physical stress, they have registered massage therapists and acupuncturists in-house. Meanwhile, scheduling a sit-down with their clinical social worker can help get those burdens off your chest.
We like their holistic approach to wellness and think you will, too. While their full range of services can be overwhelming to some, it’s one of the most complete ones we’ve seen so far.
Here’s some positive feedback from patients who loved being under the care of The Nature Doctors:
“Nature Doctors was the first clinic I went to that really listened and did everything they could to diagnose my situation. I’ve worked with a number of doctors there and they show a great amount of care for your well-being.”―Melissa Mcalister
“This was exactly what I was hoping for. I appreciated the time that Dr. Wiebe spent really getting to know the challenges and personal goals. A stark contrast to my experience with traditional medical appointments. Her partnership with the patient is very genuine. I learned a lot of things that no one had spent time explaining to me and she offered some immediate solutions that completely made sense.”―Christa Walkden
2. Dr. Sean Ceaser, ND
|BEST FOR||Pain relief|
|SERVICES||IV Treatments, Ozone Injection Therapy, Prolotherapy Injections, PRP Therapy, Bee Venom Therapy, EDTA Chelation Therapy, Hyperthermia Cancer Treatment, Mistletoe Therapy, Neural Therapy|
|ADDRESS||578 Broadway, Winnipeg MB R3C 0W5, Canada|
|CONTACT DETAILS||Phone: 204-808-1878|
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday to Friday, 9:00 AM – 6:00PM|
One of the first things you’ll notice about Dr. Ceaser is that some of his treatments are more exotic than most.
Dr. Ceaser is a licensed naturopath in Manitoba and BC. He’s been practicing for over 20 years, and currently treats patients at the Centre for Natural Pain Solutions in Broadway.
One of the many offerings they have is bee venom treatment, which is a chronic pain solution that the clinic specialises in. Other treatments that you can avail at the clinic include special diets, IV vitamin and mineral therapy, detoxification, natural anti-viral medication, and more.
An all-natural approach is also used to support the treatment of allergies, high blood pressure, pain, fibromyalgia, fatigue, neurological diseases and other chronic conditions and even cancer.
Depending on your condition, Dr. Ceaser can zone in on your personal needs and form a treatment plan as early as the first consultation. You’ll get a full workup and an in-depth assessment, so it’s worth booking with him.
The initial consultation starts at $300, but you’ll need to make a full deposit via credit card before the session. While that’s plenty of motivation to adhere to the schedule, no one wants to lose that kind of money to a missed appointment.
Here’s what patients have to say about their experience with Dr. Ceaser, and it’s all good things:
“Great people, great healing. Prolotherapy worked wonderfully to relieve my sore legs. My legs were sore constantly and I never felt relief until prolo. After a few treatments I noticed my sleep get better and I got my energy back that I felt I never had. A+ and definitely recommended!”―Kevin Hiebert
“Dr.Ceaser is a man that truly cares about helping his patients and takes time to really listen and hone in on your specific needs. He has provided me relief from a list of injuries too long to name. I haven’t had relief from my pain in 5 years and now can see light at the end of the tunnel.”―Aaron Kachan
3. Wolseley Wellness Centre
|BEST FOR||Physical therapy|
|SERVICES||Chiropractic Services, Counselling, Lymphatic Drainage Therapy, Massage Therapy, Naturopathic Medicine, Nutrition, Prenatal Massage|
|ADDRESS||1062 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg MB R3G 0S3, Canada |
104-897 Corydon Avenue Winnipeg MB R3M 0W7, Canada
|CONTACT DETAILS||Phone: 204-774-5521 |
Email: [email protected]
|OPERATING HOURS||Tuesday to Friday, 9:00 AM – 8:00 PM|
Saturdays, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Sundays, 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM
If your desk job has cursed you with bad posture, you can opt to have it corrected at Wolseley Wellness. In addition to naturopathic medicine, they offer chiropractic services and massage therapy.
It’s also a good option for you if you have a baby on the way. That’s because they also offer pregnancy massages as part of their prenatal care and we’ve heard good things about those.
If you’re feeling a bit stagnant (due to said desk job), consider their lymphatic drainage therapy as well. The service starts at $90 an hour and aims to regulate circulation and the flow of lymphatic fluid.
For naturopathic medicine, you’ll be dealing with board-certified ND, Dr. Jill Kazuk. Chronic diseases are her particular areas of interest, making her an ideal choice if you’re suffering from gastrointestinal, neurological, or autoimmune deficiencies.
While the clinic has two locations in Winnipeg, it’s important to note that Dr. Kazuk can be found in the one along Corydon Avenue. If you prefer to stay home, you can opt to book a virtual appointment instead, which is a nice convenience we wish more NDs offered.
We’re also fans of the fact that they provide discounts for students and seniors. That being said, it’s worth noting that their standard rates are already priced reasonably, typically right at the city average.
Combine that with the range of services you can get here, and it’s a pretty good option for those who want holistic healing. We do wish they had more than one ND, though, as it can get pretty hard to book with Dr. Kazuk at times.
Here’s some feedback on Wolseley Wellness Centre.
“I highly recommend this place. If you’re looking for a chiropractor, Dr. Terry Michalyshyn is an excellent choice; friendly, kind and very knowledgeable at his craft. And if you’re looking for a massage therapist, you cannot go wrong with Kristofer Penner. He is tremendous, the best! Glad I found them both. They’re my go-to physical treatment providers. This said, everyone here is fantastic! Can’t go wrong visiting Wolseley Wellness!”―Derek Pang
“Clean, friendly and is easy to get too and are not as expensive as other spots. Has many services available for one stop shop”―Julie Sheeshka
4. Dr. Ashley Cassan Naturopathic Medicine
|BEST FOR||Skin and overall health|
|SERVICES||Cosmetic Acupuncture, IV Therapy, Acupuncture|
|ADDRESS||1108 Corydon Ave, Unit 4, Winnipeg MB R3K 0Y9, Canada|
|CONTACT DETAILS||Phone: 204-500-1611 or 204-898-3130|
|OPERATING HOURS||Thursdays, 4:00 PM – 9:00 PM |
Fridays, 9:30 AM – 7:00 PM
Saturdays, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Creams and chemicals are more likely to cause allergic reactions to sensitive skin. If you’re looking to improve your complexion without all that, we recommend Dr. Cassan’s cosmetic acupuncture.
This form of treatment stimulates blood flow and collagen production in certain areas of the skin. Without applying harsh chemicals, cosmetic acupuncture helps you achieve supple skin and a noticeable reduction in wrinkles and fine lines.
She does standard acupuncture too for pain relief, hormonal rebalancing, treating headaches, and more. It’s also used to treat digestive issues and relieve anxiety.
To support this mode of self-healing, she offers IV nutrient drips. Not only is IV therapy aimed at healthy skin, it also promotes better overall health―especially if you lack nutrition.
Her available hours might seem sparse at first glance, but she tends to open extra time slots throughout the week. Conveniently, her online booking app has a calendar view of all the available times you can schedule a specific treatment.
That means no more playing battleship with your doctor over who’s available when! She also includes her rates there and, frankly, we wish all doctors could schedule like this.
As you may have noticed, all of her treatments involve needles. That said, you may want to look elsewhere if you experience discomfort with needles or exhibit serious signs of trypanophobia.
If you’re wondering what Dr. Cassan is like in action, feel free to check out these patient reviews:
“With careful consideration and thorough practice, Dr.Cassan has helped me greatly with my concerns. She’s kind and takes the time to really understand what you are struggling with and finds the best possible solution for you. She’s kind and overall such an amazing experience”―Mariah Brezden
“I had a great experience with Dr. Cassan. She’s very easy to take to. I loved how comfortable she made me feel while talking about my own personal health concerns. My husband and I participated in Dr. Cassan’s Reset Program back in January 2021. I thought it was great how she uses online accessible platforms like apps, which made it user friendly, especially during COVID-19. I recommend Dr. Cassan to family and friends. Overall she’s so great if you want to dive deeper with your personal health and well-being.”―Cassandra Kiernicki

Via Natural Medicine is another practice that specialises in IV therapy. They offer a full range of IV treatments, from Vitamin C to EDTA, botanicals, and more.
Speaking of botanicals, we like their provisions for herbal medicine. They have a homeopathic doctor in their team who’s in charge of natural remedies, tinctures, and minerals.
This is good news for you if you take a special interest in herbal medicine. Before or after your appointment, you can visit their apothecary at your leisure.
Apart from IV therapy, Naturopaths in Via Natural Medicine are trained to administer vitamin injections, traditional Chinese medicine, and more. These methods are used to treat ailments such as acid reflux, heartburn, and high blood pressure.
If you need to cancel, the cut-off point for advanced notice is 2:00 PM the day before your appointment. Keep in mind that cancelling last minute will incur a penalty worth 50% of your booked session.
Here are some reviews praising the service and amenities at Via Natural Medicine:
“This clinic is phenomenal and so are the staff. I’ve been coming here for a while to see André MacNair, RMT. André is one of the best Massage Therapists around. His approach is more methodical and calculated, he has a therapeutic style which assesses you before and after the massage to gauge improvement and leave you not only feeling better but physically improved. He tracks your ailments and reassesses at every visit. I’ve been coming to see André for 6 years and I couldn’t engage in fitness and the career I have without his professional care backing me. Thanks André!”―Kelsey H
“The space is beautiful, the staff are wonderful and they have a great supply of remedies, herbs and locally made products in the apothecary.”―Ashley Pharazyn
