about

Steven Enman-Beech is a Registered Acupuncturist (R. Ac.) trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine (T.C.M.) acupuncture techniques, as well as modern biomedical approaches to acupuncture. He graduated from Eight Branches Academy of Eastern Medicine in Toronto, Canada with a Diploma in Acupuncture & Moxibustion. This multi-faceted education program included training in tuina massage, cupping, guasha (press strokes), shiatsu, herbology, and internal martial arts such as Tai Ji, Qi Gong, and Xin Yi, as well as advanced seminars with Kiiko Matsumoto (Master of Japanese-style acupuncture) and acclaimed lecturer, author, and translator Elizabeth Rochat de la Vallée.

Steven's practice is based on the fundamental belief that traditional and modern medicine are complementary approaches to the same system. This is one of the fundamental laws of yin and yang theory, which is the foundation of T.C.M. philosophy: apparently opposite forces actually support, nourish, and balance each other. If the relationship between yin and yang is applied to the relationship between traditional and modern medicine, we see how each can make the other more understandable and effective: Western science is discovering new ways of looking at concepts that traditional healers have been describing for thousands of years, and traditional approaches to health care are providing new directions for Western medicine to explore in the treatment of difficult conditions. You will encounter this application of yin and yang theory working with Steven, who offers a solid traditional approach with a significant modern influence.

How Many Treatments?

This is a complicated question: some people respond immediately during their first treatment, some require several visits before they start to observe changes. It also depends on whether it is a short-term or long-term issue to be treated. In general, 6 -10 visits is considered one course of treatment for one issue. Some ongoing or chronic concerns may respond to ongoing treatments 1 - 4 visits per month. After one course of treatment, many people find regular weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly visits beneficial.
