EDUCATION OF PRACTITIONERS

HOW DO I FIND A PRACTITIONER OF T.C.M.?

In November of 2006, the third reading of Bill 50 passed unanimously and the profession of Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture was finally regulated. This came about after more than twenty years of lobbying our government for regulation in order to protect the public.

The full effects of this regulation will not be apparent immediately, as it will take time for the “College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario” to completely establish the guidelines.

To find a qualified practitioner near you, please look on www.ctcmpao.on.ca website under "For the Public".


MY EDUCATION:
The course I graduated from  was 4 years in length and course content included the history and philosophy of T.C.M., nutritional therapy, acupuncture (body, ear, scalp), single herbs & herbal prescriptions, internal medicine, gynecology, pediatric medicine, dermatology as well as a clinical internship and a research paper. Upon completion, successful completion of a written, oral and practical exam was required. 

I am a professional member of Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture Association of Canada (C.M.A.A.C.) and the Professional Acupuncture Association of Ontario (P.A.A.O.) and I also maintain my registration and license with the College of Nurses of Ontario.
