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?
Cosmetic Acupuncture is a specialized form of acupuncture using micro-needles to stimulate collagen production in the face. It repairs fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring and large pores. It improves the skin’s appearance and texture by increasing micro-circulation.
Is Cosmetic Acupuncture similar to having a facial?
Each treatment begins with body acupuncture to de-stress, relax, and improve your overall state of being. It’s very relaxing once the needles are in and, like a facial, includes:
- cleansing and gently massaging your face
- applying a natural organic hydrating mask
- gently massaging or jade rolling the face
- application of rebalancing hydrating oil
- dermarolling is done on your 3rd visit
Is Cosmetic Acupuncture covered by my benefits plan?
Yes, up to $100 per session is covered by most extended health benefit plans.
How many treatments are needed?
At least 5 – 10 treatment either weekly or bi-weekly then once every 4 – 6 weeks.
