professional and caring people.

Our practitioners and doctors are committed to high quality medicine and patient care. Our practitioners and doctors work collaboratively within our clinic, sharing over 175 years of collective experience to help each other solve difficult medical problems. We also work collaboratively with Western Conventional fertility clinics, having several of our clinics directly within Western fertility clinics.
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. Unfortunately, locally trained TCM practitioners are often lacking this vital component of traditional Chinese medicine.
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 Doctors are a members of the 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 inadequate 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 wish to have treated. Please read our FAQ for further assistance selecting a practitioner.
