Our patients have a higher than average degree of success. But why? Expertise, period.

 

Total Wellness Centre’s Chinese practitioners and doctors are highly experienced, professional and caring people. Our Registered traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners and acupuncturists have at least eight years of traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) education; four year bachelor degrees in acupuncture, TCM schooling and conventional Western medical schooling, followed by at least four years of post-graduate education. Each of our practitioners has attained advanced degrees in acupuncture and Chinese Herbs and prescriptions. In addition, our practitioners of Chinese Medicine have at least 25 years of experience each.

 

Our Naturopathic doctor is highly educated and skilled- she has completed two degrees in Canada- and has successfully completed complimentary courses in hypnotherapy and doula services.

Our practitioners and doctors are committed to high quality medicine and patient care. Our practitioners and doctors work collaboratively within our clinic, sharing decades of collective experience to help each other solve difficult medical problems. We also work collaboratively with conventional Western fertility clinics, and often provide treatments directly within those settings.

Our practitioners are qualified for both Acupuncture and custom Herbal prescription formulas (raw herbs, concentrated powder herbs and ‘patent’ herbal pills). The ability to properly prescribe herbs requires many years of education and experience. Prescribing patent herbal pills (pre-bottled commercial formulas) is not a substitute for proper custom herbal prescriptions. There is currently no educational program in Canada teaching practitioners to prescribe and dispense raw herbal prescriptions.

Each of our registered Chinese Medicine practitioners and acupuncturists are members in good standing of the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (CTCMPAO). Our Naturopathic Doctor is a members of the naturopathic medicine profession, in good standing with the College of Naturopaths of Ontario.

Acupuncture can be performed in Ontario by various allied health professionals including Chiropractors and Doctors. It is our belief that complete education and understanding of traditional Chinese medicine, including acupuncture, herbs, and diet, is essential to proper patient treatment. Weekend and intensive courses offered to other health care practitioners provide far less education and skill to properly assess and treat patients.

 

When selecting a TCM clinic or practitioner of TCM, it is crucial to ask about the practitioner’s educational background, overall experience and exposure to the specific disorder you will have treated.
