About David Woodward, Registered Acupuncturist, Registered Massage Therapist
David is a dually-licensed Practitioner who graduated from Sutherland-Chan School and Teaching Clinic in Toronto with a Diploma in Massage Therapy in 2005. His passion for ongoing learning and development led David to study Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncture. He then graduated from a 2000 hour Traditional Acupuncture Program at the Shiatsu School of Canada in Toronto with High Honours in early 2014. David subsequently became a Registered Acupuncturist with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario which now formally governs the recently regulated profession.
David also completed additional training in Advanced Cosmetic Acupuncture and TCM Beauty studying under renowned Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner and Aesthetician Fong Wang, R.TCMP, who has been featured on CTV and CBC TV, as well as in several highly reputable magazines.
Experienced Aestheticians, Hairstylists, and Practitioners of both Eastern and Western Medicine have long been a cherished part of David’s professional network and it was therefore a natural progression for him to learn the exciting niche of Cosmetic Acupuncture, Facial Rejuvenation and TCM Skin Care. The effects are known to counter the aging process, such as diminishing wrinkles, restoring a healthy and soft glow, and in some cases can provide a lifting effect as well as noticeable brightening and softening of the skin.
Conditions such as Acne, Rosacea, Age Spots, the toll of everyday stressors on the face and more can be treated with this safe and effective approach. A particular bonus is that Cosmetic Acupuncture and its related modalities are billable to Extended Insurance Benefit Plans.
As a Practitioner, David believes that your treatment should be centred around you and your specific and individual concerns. By using active listening skills and meeting you where you are at with respect to your health, David uses your feedback and input, combined with a careful assessment to provide treatment that is customized to you. Examples of conditions that are commonly seen in his practice include Pain, Dizziness, Chronic Fatigue, Insomnia, Respiratory/Lung, Gynecological and Hormonal Conditions, Pregnancy and Labour, Sinus, Digestive, Urinary, Musculoskeletal, Stress/Anxiety, Skin Conditions, and more.
David truly believes in Quality care and as a testament to the rapport with his clients, he received both the Diamond (1st) and Gold (3rd) Reader’s Choice Awards in 2012 for Guelph’s favourite RMT (1st) and Best Massage Therapy Clinic (3rd). In his spare time, David enjoys music, the arts, trading precious metals, linguistics, and world travel.
