What is Chinese Medicine (TCM)?

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) originated in China and has been in use for thousands of years and is increasingly being used within existing health-care by western health care providers as either a primary method of maintaining health or in conjunction with traditional western medicine.

Chinese medicine practitioners believes the a body and mind are part of a whole and that to be in good health, you must have good spirit and that diseases are not so much cured as much as the person is cured.  TCM uses a non-invasive approach to healing and TCM practitioners use methods such as Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture, Tuina / Anmo, qigong (breathing and exercise therapy) to treat a wide range of conditions.

How to be a TCM Practitioner

In British Columbia, Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists are regulated by The College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists (CTCMA).  Students must train at a TCM school that is accredited by the Private Career Training Institution Agency (PCTIA) and you must be a student registrant of the CTMA prior to the clinical portion of your training. The training program must be completed within five consecutive years in order to be eligible for registration. 

Practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture are regulated in Alberta and requires a license to practice from the College and Association of Acupuncturists of Alberta.  To obtain a license one must complete an approved course or an equivalent and have practiced Acupuncture for at least 500 hours in the previous 2 years.
