stephane pepin acupuncture


Stéphane’s interest in health care began in his teens with lifeguarding and first aid services with the Canadian Red Cross Society. He competed in lifeguard competitions across Quebec and was involved with the Canadian Red Cross Society in disaster relief locally and internationally, as well as in first aid training.

Acupuncturist since 2002, Stéphane first practiced in Whitehorse, Yukon before going to perfect his knowledge and techniques in China for a little over a year. He then moved to Sherbrooke, where he practiced for 5 years, before coming to Montreal in 2011.

Stéphane is devoted about providing the best possible care to his clients and he constantly seeks to improve and expand his knowledge. The focus of his practice is on the treatment of sports injuries and optimization of athletic performance, as well as the support of cancer patients. He completed a mentorship program with Whitfield Reaves, a leading figure in the field of sports acupuncture, and he regularly travels to China, where he undergoes a rigorous apprenticeship in Chinese hospitals.

Stéphane is also a teacher of acupuncture in the acupuncture department of College Rosemont and he teaches medical and pediatric tuina to therapists as well as the general public.


He is happy to put his experience and knowledge at your service in order to help you accomplish your health and performance goals.
