Privacy notice: I know that people are hesitant to provide information online but please rest assured that all information you provide comes directly to Nanaimo Acupuncture with no third parties to harvest your data in between.
Once your information has been received it will not be shared with anyone else and you will not receive any unsolicited communication from the clinic in the future. If you have a question or comment, you will get a response and that's all.
Of course! New patients are always welcome and you don't even need a referral.
The easy answer is that acupuncture usually helps with most conditions. But we don't diagnose or offer prognosis via email or telephone so the best way to get this type of question answered is to book a consultation.
The office bills to several private insurers in Canada:
Whether your plan covers acupuncture (by an Acupuncturist) is a question you have to ask them.
BC MSP does not cover acupuncture treatment on it's own. MSP has a Supplementary Benefits (previously Premium Assistance) program which supplements paramedical treatment for people living on a lower income. The program is designed to make a limited number of treatments more affordable, up to 10 visits per year.
These 10 visits are a shared pool for acupuncture, physiotherapy, chiropractic and massage, not 10 treatments each, but 10 in total. If you've been living and filing taxes in BC and you believe you're eligible for coverage you will have to apply for it at the Supplementary Benefits page.
We don't offer discounts on our services, our rates are already significantly lower than average.
Individuals with low income might be eligible for MSP Supplementary Benefits, which may help pay some of the treatment cost.
All appointments are around an hour which gives us time to talk about what you want to work on and enough time for treatment. If you prefer a shorter treatment, just let us know.
Consultations are 15 minutes,
