Is Acupuncture Covered by OHIP?
No, acupuncture is not covered by OHIP. However, some extended health care plans may cover the cost of acupuncture treatments. It is important to check with your insurance provider to see if they will cover any or all of the costs associated with acupuncture treatments. Additionally, Stay Active Physiotherapy offers affordable rates for our services so that everyone can benefit from the healing power of acupuncture and dry needling.
What Can I Expect on My First Acupuncture Appointment?
Acupuncture is based on traditional Chinese medicine. On your first acupuncture appointment, you can expect to be asked a series of questions about your health history and current health conditions. This is to ensure that the effective treatment plan is tailored to your individual needs. Your acupuncturist will then assess your body and decide on the best course of action for treatment. During the session, tiny needles will be inserted into specific points on the body. You may feel a slight pinch or pressure when the needles are inserted. After the session, you will feel relaxed and energized.
