La médecine chinoise est composée de cinq branches, ou bien cinq modalités de traitement. Chacune de ces modalités sont unies par la théorie de la médecine chinoise, qui repose sur le concept de libre circulation de l’énergie (Qi) dans le corps. Lorsque l’énergie ne circule plus librement, un blocage s’installe et il y a apparition de symptômes. Par différentes méthodes, le praticien cherche alors à rétablir une circulation fluide du Qi.

Acupuncture is a specific tratment among Chinese medicine 5 branches. Well known and recognized in Quebec, it results from an in-depth knowledge of energetic physiology, namely the theory of meridians and its application. Through different methods of evaluation and treatment, the acupuncturist facilitates the circulation of energy (Qi) in the meridians and organs.

The East Asian herbalism is a practice which is also based on energetic evaluation. The great Chinese medical tradition makes it the best transmitted, the most practiced and the most studied modality, for more than 2000 years until today. It has never stopped improving its efficiency and enriching with an increasingly vast clinical experience adapted to modern problems.

Tuina is a unique form of massage therapy that integrates myofascial release and craniosacral therapy with the theory of acupuncture meridians. A wide variety of manual techniques make it essential in the treatment of muscle and joint pain, but also for the integration of emotional charges and traumas accumulated in the body. Combined with Qigong, Tuina offers a complete postural and energetic realignment.

Acupuncture, Tuina, Herbalism

Bachelor in music, and gong fu practitioner, Bertrand Loranger is most of all interested in the transmission of traditional practices and knowledge. Graduated from Rosemont College in 2015, his acupuncture practice revolves around three areas: Tuina massage, Kampo herbalism and acupuncture in the classic tradition of Jeffrey Yuen.

He received his Tuina at the Montreal Gongfu Research Centre under the guidance of Ethan Murchie, himself taught by Vince Black, founder of the North American Tang Shou Tao. His Kampo teacher, Nigel Dawes, is considered one of the first transmitters of Dr. Otsuka’s Japanese method in the West. Tuina is an approach of choice both in the treatment of muscle and joint pain as well as in the exploration of somatization pathways and the integration of traumas. Kampo, for its part, demonstrates remarkable efficacy in the treatment of gastrointestinal and gynecological disturbances.
