Therapies

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

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.

Herbal Medicine

Herbal Therapy is based on classical Chinese herbal medicine that has been practiced safely and effectively since the Han Dynasty for around 2000 years.

Bodywork Therapy

Bodywork includes massage techniques but with additional manipulative skills such as passive stretching, structural alignment and joint mobilization to restore musculoskeletal function.

Mind-Body Exercise

Our mind is connected to our body through energy. When our mind is energetically disconnected from the body, we can neither function mentally nor physically.
