One might ask themselves why should they chose a Regulated Acupuncturist over another medical modality who also practices ‘acupuncture’ but may not be a Registered Acupuncturist. The answer is simple. Registered Acupuncturists in Ontario have been trained, evaluated and tested to perform acupuncture using Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) diagnosis, theories and techniques. Registered Acupuncturists are governed by the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners of Ontario (CTCMPAO) who demand that we meet high standards of professional practice and safety in Ontario.
For Acupuncture to be truly effective, TCM theories should be employed to all treatments. This is particularly true when it comes to treating disease or conditions such as infertility. Other modalities may have limited or even no knowledge of TCM theories and diagnosis and treatments may not be as effective as a result.
