My name is Yuval Blum. I am a Chinese Medicine Acupuncturist (R.Ac), registered with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (CTCMPAO).
I graduated from a four year program from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, School of Classical Chinese Medicine and in 2009 immigrated to Canada.
TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) is a modern variation of Chinese Medicine formed during the 20th century. I refer to myself as a Classical Chinese Medicine Acupuncturist and not a TCM Acupuncturist as I received my education at a school focused on the authentic medicine that was practiced in China before the advent of TCM. My studies included tools, both philosophical and practical, that were left out during the formation of “Traditional Chinese Medicine”. Using these tools the treatment I provide has the potential to be elevated to levels that maximize the effectiveness of this amazing medicine, resulting in potentially fewer treatments, performed less frequently, and with the use of less needles.
My practice uses Acupuncture as the main tool of treatment. Other therapeutic tools such as Moxabustion, Cupping, breathing techniques, and dietary and life style consultation are added, when needed. My treatments are individualized to each patient’s needs using the different techniques and tools and combine the traditional wisdom integrated with the advancement of modern science.
I have extensive experience in treating a wide variety of health concerns including women’s health, male & female infertility, pain management, insomnia & sleep disorders, weight management, auto-immune conditions, emotional conditions, gastro-intestinal concerns, and many more.

Classical Chinese Medicine vs. Traditional Chinese Medicine
The popular treatment known as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is actually a modern early-mid 20th century modification of the 2000 year-old Chinese Medicine.
In the formation of TCM, important philosophical and practical doctrines from Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM) were left out so as to simplify the medicine and to train new practitioners.
By simplifying the medicine, some of the deepest theoretical tools were neglected and in time overlooked.
The main differences between CCM and TCM are:
