Our highly-trained team of experienced and licensed acupuncturists in Toronto has the knowledge and skill needed to understand and practise the intricacies of treating patients with acupuncture.
Credentials: Learning acupuncture and studying traditional Chinese medicine could not be easily achieved in Canada a decade ago. Our acupuncturists at SIT Acupuncture all received proper training at excellent accredited universities in China, where programs from theory to clinical are offered the best in the world.
Experience: The number of years of practice tells a story of how good an acupuncturist is. True, but that is not the entire story. Surgery is the hand work of conventional medicine. Likewise, acupuncture is the hand work in Chinese medicine. To be among the best, it takes not just time, but also a gift. Our fine needling technique and diagnostic skills is the key to effective treatments.
The regulatory body of our profession, College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (CTCMPAO) was formally established on April 1, 2013. In the time before that, the public was not protected and had no way to assess the credentials of practitioners. The College now serves to facilitate patients to access competent and ethical services.
We understand how important standards and training are in delivering safe and successful acupuncture treatment. We take pride in the fact that all of our staff is trained, experienced and registered in good standing with the College.
