S-T/L-C Acupuncture & Natural Medicine Clinics are the first, largest and most established holistic health clinics in Atlantic Canada.

We were established in 1988 by Dr. Diana Tong Li and Dr. Franklyn S. Chen, Doctors of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Doctors of Naturopathy.

Throughout the years, the clinics have earned an excellent reputation for serving the health care needs of Atlantic Canada. Because of the clinics’ successes Dr. Li and Dr. Chen have been featured frequently on Atlantic Canadian Television and in the print media. They have lectured at Atlantic Canadian Universities. They have also been called upon by numerous Health Care Associations to speak on Natural Medicine.

Close to 50% of the clinics’ patient load is doctor referred as a result of the clinic’s successes and the high regard Dr. Li and Dr. Chen are held in. The clinics regularly work hand-in-hand with doctors, specialists and hospitals.


Based on years of study, clinical experience and research the clinics have developed an integrated approach to complementary medicine. This approach combines the best of Eastern and Western, ancient and modern medicine. The clinic’s practitioners have a wide range of training and expertise. The team approach has also been of immense value to their own individual practices and health. Our practitioners include Doctors of Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Naturopathy, and Chiropractic as well as medical specialists, Massage Therapists, an Athletic Therapist, a Reflexologist, a Nutritionist, a Counselor, A Hypnotherapist, a Medical Intuitive, and Blood Testing and Allergy Testing Technicians.
