Unihealth started with a Dream

"To establish a series of health centres that provide the highest quality in alternative health care at the best value for the public."

With this dream our founder, Dr. Ernest Ho, opened the first Unihealth Centre in 1995 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. His concept was, and still is, to provide a diverse range of treatments and therapies by blending Eastern and Western healing philosophies under one cost effective management system. What evolved since then are not only health centres but also a comprehensive health system.

Besides the establishment of physical locations, Unihealth ventured into realm of Internet health care by launching in September of 2000. This was the first step in linking our physical centres to the World Wide Web. To date, has been serving users from all around the world concerning providing information and products with respect to alternative health care.

By providing physical centres for therapies and a portal for online solutions, Unihealth is constantly working towards establishing the most comprehensive alternative health system for our users.


Unihealth is focused to expand by concurrently bringing more health centres to different locations as well as developing a well-rounded online community to link our physical locations to the Internet.

In this day and age where technology has become part of providing efficient health care, we have invested hundreds of thousands of dollars into developing a full service online portal where users have access to a diverse range of services and benefits. We believe that not only is it important to provide physical locations for therapies but it is also critical to compliment the system by having an online component.

Our commitment is to bring our health system into every suburb within North America and also into every home via the Internet.
