In Dec 2013 Ms. Richards applied for grandfathering into the new College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario. She passed all three exams in April and is waiting for the College to process her registration into the new association. As soon as the registration numbers come through, it will be added to her credentials.
Until that time, she will carry on with her other forms of treatments utilizing all the different methods of access to the points of the body through other means like electronic acupuncture through the Indigo Machine, QXCI, nutrition, cupping massage, LED Light Therapies, tuning forks, magnets, crystal lasers and other lasers.
Many of these methods utilize the Acupuncture body to produce the desired effects in addiction control as used in weight loss. All of these methods can be used to relieve pain and balance stress and imbalances of the body to bring back health including mental health. These methods are effective and can be used together.
