Acupuncture is Changing in Ontario

The The Transitional Council of the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (TC-CTCMPAO) is working on regulating Chinese medicine and acupuncture in Ontario. Legislation designed for consumer protection is being developed.

Currently, the TCM profession is in a transitional phase which will last approximately two to three years. During this time, the transitional Council will develop registration requirements and register members, develop practise standards including what are considered acts of professional misconduct, and other necessary work that will allow the College to fully operate. Once the transitional Council completes its work, the College will have the tools to fully regulate the practice of TCM in the public interest.

Colleen Scanlan, RN, Ac.,BScN has been told she’ll be grandfathered in under any new legislation owing to her many years of training and practice as an acupuncturist. Colleen began studying acupuncture in 1986 and has been practicing in Ontario for many years.

As of the time of writing, OHIP covers $7 of each acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture is useful for both chronic and acute health problems and can be used for pain management, smoking cessation, migraine relief and many other issues. Call 705-478-5483 to make an appointment and see how Colleen can help you – she guarantees relief in 3 treatments for acute cases (6 for chronic) or your money back.
