杰森TUTT, R.Ac - 不列颠哥伦比亚省

1. What do you like about practicing in British Columbia?
British Columbia seems to be one of the provinces on the leading edge of TCM & Acupuncture within Canada. BC was one of the first provinces to become regulated in Canada and is now leading the way for an expanded scope of practice in TCM & 针刺. I am so lucky to be surrounded by talented practitioners that have mentored me and become close friends in my life.

2. 你的专业是?
七月 2015, the CTCMA filed a regulation amendment to add “Point Injection Therapy” to the scope of practice in BC for TCM/A. Since initially getting trained in PIT in the fall of 2014, I have fallen in love with using injections as a part of my daily practice with impressive results. My main area of focus with PIT is addressing chronic pain and sports injuries.

3. 做什么你加入CMAAC?
TCM/A needs unity across the provinces, as well as within the provinces in order to negotiate and lobby government and insurance companies for better coverage and access to a wider scope of practice. The first question asked to us when meeting government officials is “Do you represent the profession?” The CMAAC being a Canada-wide association with impressive membership numbers is an important step to unify TCM/A across Canada and to be taken seriously as a profession. It is my hope that our provincial association the ATCMA can work closely with the CMAAC in realizing these goals.

4. 你希望看到中医药的未来和针灸保健在您的地区, 或在加拿大?
I hope to see the TCM/A profession being treated as equals to other practitioners across the board. Currently in BC, our crown provincial insurance company for motor vehicles will only cover acupuncture treatments for motor vehicle accidents performed by physiotherapists, but not TCM/A practitioners. I hope that in the future, government insurance as well as extended health insurance will treat our profession the way it treats every other regulated profession.

5. 是中医和针灸初级保健和综合护理的重要组成部分?
TCM/A has been shown in research to have minimal side effects and clinically significant positive effects on a number of conditions such as; chronic pain, 过敏, addiction, anxiety, 萧条, insomnia that generally require long term prescription medications with a number of unpleasant side effects. It is my belief that Acupuncture should be considered first before putting a patient on a long term drug medication unless the patient is at risk of immediate harm.

For integrative care, The National Cancer Institute has published evidence on the effectiveness of acupuncture for reducing cancer treatment induced side effects such as nausea and vomiting, 疲劳, hot flashes, xerostomia, neuropathy, anxiety, 萧条, and sleeping problems. It is outperforming drugs for many of these conditions without further side effects in these already fragile patients.

丽贝卡Sprintz, CMD - 曼尼托巴

你最喜欢中医执业/ A在温尼伯做?

我喜欢在温尼伯行医是好奇心和兴趣,人们开始显现. 正如你所知, 有没有规定在这里,所以针灸的质量是相当变数. 大多数针灸师物理治疗师或脊医, 当然,和患者的经验是从什么真正的中医治疗应该是相当偏斜. 幸好, 病人终于开始认识到这一点,并正在寻找合格的针灸师. 是什么让我专注于产前保健是女性在温尼伯有缺乏支持. 女性没有意识到,流产是可以预防的, 孕吐相当迅速补救, 可治疗痔疮, 旋转breeched婴儿, 和劳动力增强相当安全有效地配合针灸. 它一直是这样的特权,以帮助妇女有积极和愉快的怀孕.

What is your 特产?

其实我在开始我自己的诊所的过程被称为家庭健康针灸诊所在那里我的工作重点将是对生育和怀孕的支持.

做什么你加入CMAAC?

我加入CMAAC,因为它是在曼尼托巴的限定关联. 我研究了BC和CTCMA是庞大且发展成熟的调节机构. 我认为CMAAC是最接近的. 我尊重事实,有一 2 部分联考, 给我们的私人保险的认可机构数目, 并为专业保险覆盖面的机会.

你希望看到中医药的未来和针灸保健在您的地区, 或在加拿大?

我真的希望CMAAC将在曼尼托巴规范在不久的将来尽可能多的从业者要成为这里认识的缺乏法规和正在利用这一优势. 这是一个耻辱,不合格的从业人员首先影响人民 (并有可能最后) 针灸经验. 法规的缺乏也贬低中医作为一门艺术和科学. 它是这样一个令人难以置信的药物从而真正把人作为一个整体,应该以最大的尊重对待. 我很高兴看到其他省份认识到这一点,我很期待曼尼托巴效仿希望很快.

ð. 布伦Clavette, D.Ac, RMT, ADS, MQP - 新不伦瑞克省

你最喜欢的NB练TCMA做?

在这里练习在Fredericton, 新不伦瑞克省, 已经很大. I moved here in 1989 曾居住在蒙特利尔的后 8 多年来,我做了我的传统培训在欧莱雅巴黎高等高等德MEDECI​​NE锦庐蒙特利尔. Then I did the provincial exam with ‘La Corporation Professionnelle des Medecins du Quebec’, now under L’Ordre des Acupuncteurs du Quebec which I am still a member of. Within 3 在NB是个, I was already in a full time practice.

你有什么特产?

I am also a Registered Massage Therapist. I combine with Kinetic Swedish Massage, CranioSacral Osteopathic techniques, 躯体情绪释放, 和内脏操作. 我一直在练气功了近 20 多年来,我目前在做一些事前医疗气功治疗师的培训与魁北克针灸师的勋章.

你是一个RMT和针灸师, 你怎么整合,你做的各种方式?

我的疗程大约运行 60 至 80 分钟, 这给了我时间做非常深入和个性化的工作. 而针到位, 让我们说, 例如, 远端古董点 , 然后我按摩腹部和内脏做操作, 或释放的颈部和 / 或者做颅骨拱顶,甚至口工作. 根据不同的个体的需要,这将决定我使用的工具; 我是否做深筋膜组织释放或疏经通, 胃气领域和器官的清洁与医疗气功. 工作的方式已经非常满意为我作为一个治疗师和我的病人. 当然,他们享受按摩,但一次又一次,他们提到了持久的影响来自于针灸.

做什么你加入CMAAC?

我来自一个稳定的省份, 当我第一次搬到NB, 针灸的做法被称为最小. I wanted to be part of a professional association that will help bring the standards and scope of practice into a legislated process. 我一直的应用主席和委员会成员超过 15 岁月. 很多年, 我有同样的标题与按摩疗法协会的专业机构,我是创始成员. 我不得不做, 仍然继续做, 各种教育宣传活动.

What do you hope to see in the future of Acupuncture and TCM care in your province, 或在加拿大?

由于这样的事实,我们尚未在立法NB省, 我觉得第一步是让所有协会聚在监管过程. Ethnia芒登 (椅子, 中国中医和纽芬兰和拉布拉多针灸师) was here recently for the Maritime Association of Registered Acupuncturists Spring Meeting where she offered the Safety Program for Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists. 这是一个踏脚石我们; 第一,使对话在各种不同的协会和各省. She has also offered us tools for the legislative process as well so as to bring a common ground to prepare for the provincial / 在加拿大国家考试. 这是鼓舞人心的,并, 希望, will produce a very positive outcome for our profession here.

布朗温·约翰森, D.Ac.- 萨斯喀彻温省

你最喜欢练习在你的区域或诊所做?

Saskatoon has been a great place to practice! 我在这里提出 2011 在练习后,科克伦, 为阿尔伯塔 3 岁月. 尽管萨斯卡通有超过人口 200 000, it’s a very close-knit community and therefore word of mouth has been huge influence in the growth of my practice.

你的专业是?

我集中我的实践预 & 产后护理. 后 毕业 from Grant MacEwan University in 2007, 我决定把重点放在采取继续教育课程,在产前和产后针灸. 这对我生下儿子后,中变得更加热情的为我 2012. I was able to go through the pregnancy and childbirth process while experiencing the benefits of acupuncture first hand.

做什么你加入CMAAC?

我搬到了萨斯喀彻温省从艾伯塔省,针灸已调节. 我很失望地得知,针灸并没有在萨斯喀彻温调节. 做一些研究,并与其他针灸师在该地区发表演讲后,, 我意识到,加入CMAAC将是对我最好的选择,在他的观点.

我想看看针灸在萨斯喀彻温省监管. 我教育每一个客户端,走过我的门上找到一个合格的针灸师的重要性. 不幸的是有很多在萨斯喀彻温省个人谁很少小时的训练后练习针灸.

我也想看到更多的医疗专业人员与针灸一起工作. 自从我开始在实践 2008, 我已经看到了由全科医生和OBGYNs增加转介人数. 例如, I have had several clients see me at the request of their doctors to try and start labour naturally so that a medical induction can be avoided. is very exciting for me to see and I hope that it continues!

威廉·波特- North West Territories

你最喜欢中医执业/ A耶洛奈夫做?
It’s like being a pioneer on your own in the north, 有一个大的各种疾病的治疗, 在病人群的不同背景, 在寒冷的冬天温暖的心, a chance to educate people. There is a opportunity to build a deep soul connection with people here.

你的专业是?
My specialty would be esoteric acupuncture. I like the challenge of a mystery, coming up with unique treatments to address some of the more uncommon conditions with which my patients present. I may see as many as eight to thirteen patients a day, every one of them with different needs. Choosing the particular approach that will be the most effective gives me the energy to keep going on these long working days.

做什么你加入CMAAC?
因为没有关联的新世界, 没有立法,没有监管的中医或针灸的做法, 我觉得有必要与CMAAC关联,以保持我的凭据, have a source of continuing education opportunities and build a network of colleagues for consultation and support. I also appreciate member benefits such as the newsletter and the professional insurance coverage. The rigorous qualifications required for membership ensure that the organization maintains a high standard, 我欣赏.

你希望看到中医药的未来和针灸保健在您的地区, 或在加拿大?
因为在我生命中的其他情况, 我将要离开北方参加一个做法在Thunder Bay (红河针灸). There is a great need and a well-established clientele around the Northwest Territories, and it is my fervent hope that some other TCM practitioners will take up the challenge of life north of 60. It is a very rewarding part of the country to live in, especially for people who are looking for adventure. One of the things that would be helpful is to have the Territorial Government enact legislation regulating practitioners of TCM and acupuncture as well other alternative therapies. This will ensure that the standard of care remains as high as possible for northern residents, while offering them alternatives to western methodologies lock.

帕梅拉·摩尔- 萨斯喀彻温省

你最喜欢练习在你的区域或诊所做?

在我工作的诊所还设有自然疗法医生, 按摩治疗师和身体说话从业人员. 它坐落在一个美丽的老家这带来了一个不同类型的气氛. 所有者的目标是创建一个愈合的地方 – 在这里,人们可以实现在他们的生活的平衡. 这是从业者和客户提供良好的环境. 我们都很忙,我的客户正在采用养生防病的中国内科理论.

Because Chinese medicine has so much to offer – 多种形式针灸, 拔罐, 刮痧, 与信仰, 而艾灸几乎总是东西可以做,以协助我们的客户.

做什么你加入CMAAC?

我加入CMAAC,只要我从学校毕业 2001 后 4 在米切纳年计划. 我想要属于一个专业组织,在所有它的方面促进了中国医药,不是有些淡化版本. 我特别钦佩教授塞德里克张氏得到中国医学公认的规范和不懈的努力. 他和CMAAC已横跨加拿大完成值得注意的是.

你希望看到中医药的未来和针灸保健在您的地区, 或在加拿大?

我研究中国医药针灸之前的背景是护理. 我当过护士超过 20 多年来在许多不同的领域,有一些奇妙的经历。, 然而, 没有什么比有关身体系统的整合中国医学的概念和理论. 几个的中医医生我在我的整个培训满足希望为中国和西医的整合,建立统一的药品,将改变医疗保健. 这将是理想的, 但在此期间, 市民可通过成功的治疗和接触中国内科理论一个人在一个时间的教育是有显著的影响. pamela

由于萨斯喀彻温省没有被监管, 我想它是如此. 药用和传统的针灸是不同的实体. 中医将在针灸领域提供的主要方式; 在差异教育公众.

梁念坚- 马卡姆, 安大略省

What do you like about practicing TCM/A in Markham and Toronto?

Many of our own neighbours and familiar patients reside in this area, they bring much joy to my TCM practice. The patients have easy access to this location because of the good traffic, many can travel from Toronto Downtown, 密西沙加, 汉密尔顿, 宾顿, 奥克维尔, 滑铁卢, and even North of New Market to visit this popular place in the Greater Toronto Area. There are many great suppliers here as well for herbal medicine or medical supplies around this locality. Since we have been practicing in this location for around 30 岁月, we have developed a great clientele.

你的专业是?

Although the practice of Chinese Medicine is wide, and demands the practitioner to continually research and develop his/her own skills, there are a few diseases that I become very familiar with. I have seen many patients with Respiratory diseases for example different aspects of Coughs and Asthma; Digestive disorders such as Epigastric Pain, Gastric Upset, Diarrhea and Constipation, Diabetes, Acid Reflux or Nausea and Vomiting; Pain or Neurological Disorders such as Painful Obstructions, Facial Pain or Neuralgia, Stiffness and Neck pain, Sprains, Lumbago and Sciatica, Arthritis and Bone Degeneration, and even Sports Injuries.Many patients also come to see me for Infertility and Gynecological disorders and Cancer, which has become very common.

做什么你加入CMAAC?

I joined CMAAC with the initiative to further the TCM practice in Ontario. I wish to produce a professional standard in TCM in Ontario, and I also wish to help TCM practitioners in developing their own practice. The quality of this association is outstanding, as of fact, during CMAAC’s past years we were able to help our practitioners meet the registration requirements through continual education and training. In the future, we wish to help CMAAC’s members achieve other benefits through insurance and other public regulatory bodies. CMAAC in the future will have many development opportunities in collaboration with other health professions, which will provide other benefits as well to the community.

你希望看到中医药的未来和针灸保健在您的地区, 或在加拿大?

We hope that more TCM schools can be accredited to the university level, or if possible, more universities can offer TCM degrees here in Ontario.We also hope that the Grandparented Class of TCM practitioners can be changed to the General Class, so that they can also contribute their valuable TCM service to the general public. We also hope to see more government support in the profession. 是中医和针灸初级保健和综合护理的重要组成部分? This is certainly important. If TCM can fully collaborate with other regulated health practitioners and receive more of the government’s support, then this will benefit Ontario as a nation.

格温·威廉姆斯, CMD, 新斯科舍省

Why did you choose to this profession?

My background is in science and research. I have a variety of educational credentials, worked in medical research and managed clinical trials for a number of years. While looking to apply to medical school, I fell in love with TCM when one of my children had a health issue that could only be alleviated with acupuncture. I believed that TCM would be the key ingredient to the future success of a modern, integrated medicine and decided to switch career paths.

Where did you study?

I completed a full time 2300 hour, acupuncture program at Eastern College in Halifax while working 2 full-time jobs (managing a seniors home on weekends and building web capabilities for health promoters in the evenings) and parenting 3 teenage children.

做什么你加入CMAAC?

When I graduated, I joined CMAAC because of its great reputation and long history of good work in promoting the profession.

你的专业是?

I bring a rich life experience to my practice. I work out of my home, “the cottage”, in Musquodoboit Harbour. My clinic (Eastern Shore Holistic Acupuncture) is warm and welcoming with two treatment rooms and an office area overlooking the lake. Because I live in a rural area, I treat everything from optimizing health in people who are well to supporting the sick who have run out of options. My special interest is in treating vision loss due to degenerative diseases.

你最喜欢练习在你的区域或诊所做?

I am passionate about the holistic aspects of TCM and understand how the social determinants of health, in addition to lifestyle, emotions etc., can affect well-being. I feel greatly rewarded by what I do and believe the world is “waking up” to the benefits of a holistic, 天然药物. I like to give back and enjoy teaching at the Canadian College Of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine (CCATCM) in Bedford. 此外, I am proud to be Vice President of the NS Chapter of CMAAC.

你希望看到中医药的未来和针灸保健在您的地区, 或在加拿大?

It is an honour for me to be a part of this TCM tradition. I like how the Internet and social media has levelled the information hierarchy and given more people a voice. I try to “spread the good news” and have many followers on Face book, Linked-In and Twitter. I hope to help build a strong professional presence here in Nova Scotia, where our profession is currently unregulated, through social media, teaching, working with CMAAC and most importantly by doing my best to help facilitate healing in others.
