Frequently Asked Questions

  • Will acupuncture help with my _____?

    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.

  • What insurance companies do you bill to?

    The office bills to several private insurers in Canada:

    • Pacific Blue Cross
    • Medavie Blue Cross
    • Green Shield
    • SSQ Insurance.
    • BPA - Benefit Plan Administrators
    • Canada Life (Including Great West Life)

    Whether your plan covers acupuncture (by an Acupuncturist) is a question you have to ask them.

  • What about BC MSP?

    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.

  • Do you offer discounts for seniors or students?

    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.

  • How long are appointments?

    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,
