Treatment Philosophy I consider movement to be the best medicine for your body! Personally, after having received numerous sports related injuries in the past, I realized that strengthening the injured area through proper load management protocols will not only allow you to heal faster, but will also keep you involved in doing your favorite activities.
Hence, If you have the knowledge about the following:
1) your own body 2) your current limitations 3) a robust movement /treatment plan backed my current research
you can get back to doing the things you love the most.

Peter completed a degree in Chinese Medicine over 5 years in British Columbia at one of the most prestigious and intensive schools that his profession has to offer. It was there that he learnt the true meaning of going above and beyond for his patients, settling for nothing less than excellence. His career heated up through the passion he found from his studies. But it was from his extensive travels around the world that solidified his experience. Peter has been around the world and back again from the deserts in the middle east, to the jungles of South America. After his extensive work on the west coast he picked up his practice and settled in Toronto, Canada—a place he fondly calls home. What separates Peter from others is he has made his practice his art. Although he specializes in the treatment of pain, over the last 12 years, he has worked with everything from pre to post natal care (including the treatment of infertility), from diet to depression, and everything in between, he simply delivers results. More than just an Acupuncturist, he is teacher, he strives to educate his patients to bring health back into their hands. He challenges both western and eastern medical practices by taking the best of both of both worlds to make sure you get the results that last and help you to get a healthier and happier version of yourself. Peter is registered with and is a member of good standing of the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners of Ontario as well as the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncturists of British Columbia. Peter loves nature and hiking and pretty much anything that involves being active. He is also an avid foodie. His favourite TV show would be Game of Thrones and favourite actor is Morgan Freeman.
