It has come to the attention of the College that on January 12, 2018, Sherman Shu-Seng Lai, R. TCMP #1897, was charged with six more counts of sexual assault involving five additional persons, all of which were former patients. This was a result of further investigation into the charges of October 31, 2017 and November 29, 2017 by the Guelph Police Service for sexual assault against a former patient.
Mr. Lai's practice, the Centre of Integrative Natural Medicine had been located on Surrey Street for over 20 years, but moved locations approximately 6 years ago and is currently located at 3 Badenoch Street in Morriston, Ontario.
The College is investigating these matters. Mr. Lai has signed a voluntary undertaking with the College and is not able to practice TCM or acupuncture.
