Frequently Asked Questions About Acupuncture Treatment

  • What conditions can acupuncture help treat?

    Acupuncture is known for addressing a range of conditions, including pain management, stress reduction, and various musculoskeletal issues. It can also aid in treating headaches, digestive problems, and respiratory issues. During your consultation, we can discuss your specific concerns and determine if acupuncture is a suitable option for you.

  • How many acupuncture sessions will I need for noticeable results?

    The number of sessions required varies based on your condition and individual response to acupuncture. Some people experience relief after just a few sessions, while others may benefit from a more extended treatment plan. During our initial assessment, we'll discuss your goals and create a personalized treatment schedule to optimize results.

  • Is acupuncture a painful procedure?

    Acupuncture is generally not painful. You may feel a slight sensation as the thin needles are inserted, but it's typically brief and often described as a mild tingling or warmth. The needles used are extremely fine, ensuring a comfortable experience. Many people find acupuncture sessions to be relaxing and therapeutic.

  • Do I need a referral from my doctor to receive acupuncture treatment?

    NO, you don't need a referral to schedule an acupuncture session. It's a direct service, and you can book an appointment without prior approval from your doctor. However, if your insurance plan requires a referral for coverage, we can assist you in obtaining one.

  • How much does acupuncture cost, and is it covered by insurance?

    The cost of acupuncture sessions can vary, and insurance coverage depends on your specific plan. Some insurance providers offer coverage for acupuncture, while others may not. We recommend checking with your insurance company to understand your coverage details. We also offer assistance with any required documentation for insurance claims to make the process smoother for you.

If you’re considering acupuncture as part of your physiotherapy treatment, it’s essential to seek treatment from a qualified and licensed physiotherapist who has received appropriate training in acupuncture techniques. Discuss your specific condition, treatment goals, and any concerns you may have with the physiotherapist to ensure a comprehensive and suitable treatment plan.

My therapist is kind and understanding. She takes the time to explain the therapy and why its beneficial for me. She gives me the opportunity to hold myself accountable but helps me understand the importance of doing the exercises on my own. I love it here! I have felt welcomed since the first day.
