Dr Neil McRitchie


Dr. Neil has been a practicing Chiropractor and Clinical Acupuncturist, in Winnipeg, since 1991.

Dr. Neil attained his undergraduate degree in Sciences from the University of Winnipeg. He later attended the Northwestern Health Sciences University in Minneapolis, where he achieved his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree, and his Certification in Medical Acupuncture in 1991.

Recently retired from active Chiropractic practice, he has focused his treatment approach on Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Dr. McRitchie is a member of the Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture Association of Canada and the Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture Association of Manitoba.

His deep involvement in Winnipeg’s athletic community has given him a unique opportunity to treat many sport-related injuries and provide supportive care to the many athletes that he treats. This has fueled his desire to further study advanced Rehab /Treatment of Athletic Injuries with Traditional and Modern Chinese Medicine techniques. Dr. Neil continues to improve his skillset and pursues continuing education in Traditional Bodywork, Cosmetic Acupuncture, Medical Qi Gong, and Applied Kinesiology.

When not at the clinic he can usually be found teaching Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Kung Fu. He has been teaching since 1982, and as such has taught, and mentored, literally thousands of adults and kids in the martial arts.
