If you’re no fan of blood tests and vaccinations you may not love the idea of acupuncture, the ancient form of Chinese medicine that uses fine needles to unblock the flow of energy (or qi) throughout the body. But the needles used in acupuncture are so fine you may hardly feel them.
WHAT: Acupuncture is an important part of traditional Chinese medicine that is used to reduce pain, stress and inflammation and restore the body to a state of balance. An acupuncturist uses small, sterile disposable needles that are inserted into various points on the body. Acupuncture stimulates and enhances your body’s own ability to heal itself.
WHO PAYS? Acupuncture isn’t covered by OHIP but may be covered by workplace or accident benefits.
YOUR ROLE: Acupuncturists recommend that you communicate honestly with your practitioner about your health and the impact treatments are having on your recovery. Avoid stressful activities and situations following a session to receive maximum benefits from treatment. If you experience discomfort during treatments, be sure to speak up.
