What is Acupuncture
Contemporary Medical Acupuncture is a 5,000 year old practice originating from China. Fine needles are inserted into different areas of the body depending on the condition being treated. Your chiropractor will go through a thorough medical history and target the structures specific to the diagnosed condition. Electric stimulation may be added to the needles to increase the effect of the therapy.
Many insurance plans will cover acupuncture through your extended health benefits, some plans may require a physician’s referral.
Please note that because acupuncture is provided by a chiropractor, it must be claimed under chiropractic benefits.
