Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine have been regulated in Ontario since April 2013. The regulating body is: The College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (CTCMPAO).
Nir has been a member of the CTCMPAO since 2013 and has been practicing Acupuncture since 2009.
(If you have private insurance there is a good chance that acupuncture that is performed by a Registered Acupuncturist will be covered by your insurance.)
Nir takes the gentle approach to acupuncture using ultra-fine needles, coupled with precise palpation skills to create a calming and effective therapeutic effect. He practices acupuncture in the context of Traditional Chinese Medicine using Classic styles of acupuncture and newer styles of acupuncture according to the client’s symptoms and needs.
Nir has a background of treating clients using bodywork (Shiatsu Massage, Tuina Massage, he also studied Osteopathy for one year) and as he progressed with his acupuncture skills, he uses mostly acupuncture in his practice with great results.
Nir focuses his practice on the treatment of pain, structural conditions, neurological conditions (post stroke rehabilitation), women’s health, men’s health and stress reduction.
Acupuncture can be helpful in the treatment of pain and structural conditions, digestive issues, stress and certain chronic health conditions. Nir finds that receiving acupuncture can be beneficial on many levels. When used by a skilled practitioner acupuncture is a systemic treatment that works with your entire body to help it self regulate.
Receiving regular acupuncture treatments can help promote your health, create better awareness to health and provide tools for personal growth and life style changes.
