Is acupuncture covered by my benefits plan?

Yes, depending on your coverage each treatment can be covered for up to $100 per treatment including cosmetic acupuncture.

Is it safe?

Yes, the needles used are all sterilized, single use needles. We are regulated by the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and are trained to the highest standards on efficacy and safety.

Does it hurt?

The needles used are 1/3 the size of the needles used to give shots or draw blood. You may experience a slight prick, but the pain quickly diminishes or you may feel nothing at all. Most patients find the treatment very relaxing and often fall asleep once the needles are in place.

Can I resume normal activity after a treatment?

If you are being treated for neck, shoulder, arm, back or leg pain, you are advised to avoid a heavy or intense workout immediately following treatment. Many patients feel relaxed following treatment and often prefer to rest for the remainder of the day.

What is cosmetic acupuncture?
