Bill Zhaogong Xu (pronounced Bill 'shu') has been practicing Traditional Chinese Medicine for over 30 years. He has mastered every area of traditional Chinese medicine with a special concentration on women's and men's fertility and reproductive health.

Xu studied at the Anhui College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China from 1975 to 1978. He then worked in Zhejiang as a physician of TCM for 4 years before continuing his education in TCM and Western Medicine at the Zhejiang University of TCM from 1981 to 1985 where he attained his degree in medicine (MD). In 1991, he was appointed as head physician at Shanghai General Hospital.

In 1996, Xu was invited by Sasazaki Oriental Medicine Research Center in Nagasaki, Japan as the director of Traditional Chinese Medicine. There, he taught doctors and pharmacists TCM and also practiced in the area of female and male infertility. In 2003, Xu moved to Canada to pursue private practice.

Custom Herbal Prescriptions

Our Acupuncture practitioners are among a select few in Toronto who are fully trained in custom herbal prescription formulas (raw herbs, concentrated powder herbs and 'patent' herbal pills).


The ability to properly prescribe herbs requires years of education and experience. Prescribing patent herbal pills is not a substitute for proper custom herbal prescriptions. While acupuncture can be performed by various allied health professionals, it is our belief that complete education and understanding of traditional Chinese medicine including acupuncture, herbs, tuina massage, and diet, is essential to proper patient treatment.

Education, Training & Regulation of TCM

Presently in Canada, no schools or universities offer degree level courses in Chinese medicine. The highest level of education a locally trained student can hope to achieve is a diploma level course from a private school.


Total Wellness Centre supports the effort to bring university degree level courses to Ontario so that locally trained students can achieve the same high level of education and medical ability as those in China trained and registered as Doctors of Chinese Medicine.


In addition, Total Wellness Centre supports the efforts by the community and the government to regulate the profession of traditional Chinese medicine in Ontario.
