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.
