Hi there! My Name is Kelli Irvine and I'm a practitioner of acupuncture and Chinese medicine in Toronto. I provide Health care, based mainly on Chinese Medicine (Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, and Tuina Massage), but also on holistic Nutrition and the combination of the two. I named my service as "Rock Solid Health."
I'm now healthy and enjoying my everyday life in Toronto, helping others to feel their best. But I wasn't always this healthy. I was sick for many years with an inflammatory disease. No western doctors, including world famous specialists could figure out what was going on. I was bedridden for a long time.
Feeling hopeless and desperate I decided to give one last chance to Traditional Chinese Medicine. Thank goodness I did, it was like a miracle. After I started the treatment, my body started to heal, the pain disappeared After a decade that felt like a lifetime I don’t have to take drugs anymore! Chinese Medicine helped my condition amazingly.
As my body was healing I decided to study Holistic Nutrition and Chinese Medicine and became a certified Nutritional Consultant and Practitioner of Chinese Medicine. Now I am the owner of Rock Solid Health in Toronto. Because of my experience, I know how it feels be the patient. With my experience and qualifications I can provide the friendly and positive treatment you deserve!

Here are 7 reasons why you should try Acupuncture and
Chinese Medicine with me!
The most important reason! Now the WHO (World Health Organization http://apps.who.int/medicinedocs/en/d/Js4926e/) recognizes acupuncture and its effectiveness. Also the more and more studies prove that acupuncture works. Also, did you know that when SARS was around, Chinese Herbs were mainly prescribed in China and helped a lot of people, and the WHO was amazed by this? Read our testimonials to see for yourself how beneficial treatment can be. So if Chinese Medicine works, then why you should choose us?
Unfortunately, in Ontario, Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture is not fully regulated yet. Anyone can call themselves an "Acupuncturist", even other health care providers who have only taken a week-long course. The problem is that Chinese Medicine is not something you can learn in a couple of weeks. Chinese medicine has been practiced for thousands of years and takes years to master. I was educated at a proper Chinese Medicine school for and recieved 4 academic years of training.This means I have been trained with traditional values and have learned the core philosophies behind this medicine. A bare necessity in this line of medicine.
Communication is really important in all health care settings, especially Chinese Medicine. I speak fluent native English to allow proper communication. I do a comprehensive initial intake gathering all of the information needed to make a correct diagnosis. It is important to me that you feel like everything you wanted to talk about was heard and understood.
I know what it’s like to be sick through personal experience. I know what a patient wants and needs and understands that talking about it can be difficult at times. I fully evaluate your personal situation and what you are experiencing in order to assess and diagnose accordingly. I look at the whole situation..
Chinese Medicine is Holistic. What this means is that we treat the whole body. We understand that illness occurs because your body is out of balance. Acupuncture, herbs, proper nutrition and tuina massage can bring that balance back. It sometimes feels like Western Medicine sees the body as a machine. “This part is broken, take it out and replace it”, or they control the function of your body parts with harsh drugs. Like this drug for this organ and that drug for that limb. Soon enough all of your body parts are functioning on command by prescription drugs, not to mention the side effects! In Chinese Medicine, we consider the body as a whole system. I treat you, and all of you. There are many benefits to this type of treatment such as hidden bonuses. You may be getting treatment for your skin or depression and find that your sleep is getting better and your energy is much higher too! This is because your body is being balanced, it is starting to heal become strong like it should be.
In Chinese Medicine, it is more important to prevent disease. The best way to do so is by eating a healthy and balanced meal. A lot of Chinese herbs are part of daily food in China. We recognize this important fact in Western medicine too but the advice is sometimes a little different. I have studied Nutrition from both points of view and combines the two for the best results. Sometimes we do not get proper nutrition or other imbalances occur and we end up sick.
This is where Acupuncture, herbs and Tuina come in.
I have heard a lot of people say "I want to try acupuncture, is it painful?" Short answer is no. Long answer is: If you take a look at a needle we use, it is really thin. How thin it is? If you press the needle to your skin and it actually bends, it’s that thin! The most common size or gauge or a needle used for testing purposes in a lab is 21. We use .25, that’s (point) 25! If you take a look at this picture it shows many acupuncture needles fitting into 1 standard hypodermic needle (the kind you use to draw blood). Acupuncture needles cause a "sensation" when the needle is inserted. However it is not "painful." In fact a lot of our clients fall asleep during the treatment.
Now you have the facts, no more excuses. Its time to improve your health!!!
