Ryan Tze-Wai Longenecker was born and raised in Toronto. Being of mixed Chinese and Caucasian heritage, Ryan also speaks Cantonese and enjoyed yearly trips to China throughout his upbringing. Since a young age he has been a practitioner of Kung Fu, studying the styles of Wing Chun and Praying Mantis. Competing in both forms and sparring matches, Ryan has won medals at several competitions. Ryan also spent 5 years serving as a Corporal in the Canadian Army as an infanteer. This was an important time as he gained many useful qualities, all of which are very necessary to be a good leader and efficient worker. During his initial training he was deemed the award “Top Soldier” out of his entire training company. Moving to Hamilton, he completed his Honours Bachelor of Science in Chemistry degree at McMaster University with a minor in Biochemistry. After completing his schooling there, he moved back to Toronto to finally pursue his passion and complete the 4-year Chinese Medicine Practitioner program at the Toronto School of Traditional Chinese Medicine under the tutelage of very talented Doctors from China. Here he learned the theory and applications behind acupuncture and Chinese herbs. He is now registered with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (CTCMPAO). Ryan has worked out of several clinics in the GTA before establishing Avenue Acupuncture. He continually attends advanced training courses on acupuncture and Chinese medicine including studying a rare form of acupuncture called the Balance Method, which he uses with almost miraculous results. Other courses include advanced pulse diagnosis, in which a person’s constitution can be assessed only by the quality of the blood felt in the radial artery on a person’s wrist.

    This is my 3 visits with Ryan. The 1st and 2nd was all about my left and right shoulders and lower back too. I feel better after 2 sessions. Today I was having a severe pain in my lower left abdomen for a few days already. I don't know what he did but after my session the pain was gone. Definitely it's worth going and coming back to this clinic.
