Toronto’s premier destination for acupuncture and traditional Ease Asian Medicine since 1990 ~

Acupuncture is a method of inserting tiny needles into the tissues in different areas of the body. After placing the needle, the acupuncture doctor (or acupuncturist) may stimulate the point by tapping or rotating the needles. The potential benefit of acupuncture treatment is the elicitation of favorable physiological responses in the body to help heal injuries and manage various musculoskeletal pains. In addition, acupuncture has been used to treat a wide variety of chronic illnesses, prevent diseases, and improve well-being.

Qualifications: Acupuncture is regulated in the province of Ontario.

Our acupuncturists at the Pacific Wellness Institute are Registered Acupuncturists / Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners in Ontario.

Gentle techniques: The Japanese acupuncture treatment technique used in our acupuncture center is not only highly effective but also distinctively gentle and painless.

Research: Our acupuncturists are always trying to keep up-to-date with new research that is meaningful to improving the health of our clients. Our clinic director has been actively involved in many research projects on acupuncture and related modalities with Japanese, American, and Canadian universities and research centers.

Traditional Chinese Medicine and Kampo: Kampō (or Kanpō) is a traditional Japanese therapeutic system, the bulk of which is derived from China that came to Japan in the 5th and 6th centuries. Over the years, the Japanese have created unique diagnosis methods, herbal formulas, and therapeutic approaches based on classical Chinese medicine.

The term Kampo (or Kanpo) is translated from 2 characters: “kan” representing the Han (Chinese) dynasty and “po” meaning method. From this, Kampo literally means “the method of the Han Dynasty.”

An appropriate herbal formula is prescribed based on a determination of each individual’s unique constitutional pattern(s), based on traditional East Asian diagnosis.

Here at the Pacific Wellness, we prescribe high-quality herbs that are verified for authenticity via advanced laboratory equipment. Pesticide, heavy metal, fungus, mold and bacteria tests are performed to ensure purity and safety. Herbal formulas are typically available in the form of granules or tablets.

Traditional East Asian medicine herbal formulas are available for our acupuncture patients.
