Traditional Chinese Medicine became a regulated health profession in Ontario when the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care signed the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Act into law in 2006.
In Ontario, Traditional Chinese Medicine is defined as:
“A holistic system of health care that originated in China several thousand years ago. Therapies include acupuncture, herbal therapy, tuina massage and therapeutic exercise. TCM views the body as a whole and addresses how illness manifests itself in a patient and assesses and treats the whole patient, not just the specific disorder.”
Acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese medicine involving the insertion of filiform (thread-like) acupuncture needles into the skin at specific points on the body to achieve a therapeutic effect.
Bodywork includes massage techniques but with additional manipulative skills such as passive stretching, structural alignment and joint mobilization to restore musculoskeletal function.
