Frequently Asked Questions

As a patient, you should be aware that on April 1st, 2013, The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care made Acupuncture a regulated profession in Ontario. Not just anybody can call themselves an acupuncturist anymore. In order to needle, one must go through a series of testing and background checks. This ensures patient safety. Only Registered Acupuncturists R.Ac’s and a few other select health professionals can submit receipts to clients for health insurance coverage. Much like other professionals (for example RMT’s, Chiropractors and medical doctors), Registered Acupuncturists are must answer to the CTCMPAO. This is the college/governing body which dictates the laws and practice of Acupuncture in Ontario.

  • Depression
  • Nervous/Emotional Tension
  • Pregnancy- nausea, sore back legs, (eases nervous tension, smooth delivery, prepares body for delivery & breach position)
  • APPOINTMENT SCHEDULING/RESCHEDULING & CANCELLING IS SELF SERVE AND DONE ONLINE: Although we welcome telephone/email inquiries regarding questions related to the service, we ask that all scheduling related matters be done by patients on our VERY user-friendly booking site.
  • FILL OUT THE INTAKE FORM ONLINE: Because we do not have an onsite receptionist and the door is often locked until right before your session time, you will likely not receive your full amount of treatment time if you fill out the intake form at the clinic. We want you to have your full appointment time so fill out the paperwork online in advance!
  • THOROUGHLY FILL OUT INTAKE FORM: Thoroughness in completing the intake form is required. It helps outline treatment area of focus and indicates areas of caution.
  • BE ADVISED FIRST SESSION TIME IS SHORTENED: Please be advised that the beginning of the initial treatment is reserved for patient intake. This time is embedded into the first treatment to allow for an accurate and custom tailored treatment protocol. Actual treatment time for the first session is shortened by up to 20 minutes. All first-time appointments require a minimum of 1 hour to ensure proper intake.
  • WE HAVE A STRICT 24-HOUR CANCELLATION POLICY: Full treatment price will be charged if we don’t receive a heads-up in advance.
  • BRING A PAIR OF SHORTS AND A MASK: Most of the time, acupuncture doesn’t require you to fully disrobe. Shorts ensure privacy and comfort for both patient and therapist. Please bring a pair of shorts that you can wear over your underwear to every appointment. Wear a mask that covers your mouth and nose.
  • BE ON TIME: Out of consideration for clients after you, treatments will not be extended beyond your scheduled time. Your punctuality is appreciated.
  • SORRY, WE DON’T ACCEPT CHEQUE OR E-TRANSFER PAYMENTS: Everything else accepted including American Express.
  • REMOVE YOUR SHOES AT RECEPTION AREA: This keeps the clinic extra clean for everyone. Feel free to bring a pair of cozy slippers if you wish.

How we’re keeping you safe in clinic:

  • Symptom screening procedures (active & passive)
  • Frequent handwashing/Federally approved hand sanitizer available for staff and patients
  • All staff wearing masks
  • Increased surface cleaning and disinfection after each patient visit in treatment rooms
  • Patients required to wear masks; available for purchase (at minimal cost)
  • All visitors must wash their hands upon entering clinic
  • Waiting area chairs will be distanced
  • We are recommending patients, when possible to go straight in for your appointment to avoid gathering in the waiting area.
  • No friends/family allowed to enter until further notice, (legal guardians and those supporting patients with a disability are permitted).

Disinfection and cleanliness has and will always be of utmost importance to our team. We have taken many extra pandemic precautions to ensure everyone’s safety.

  • We disinfect and clean all contact surfaces including face cradles etc. during and in between appointments.
  • We’ve added extra space in our reception area, added space between wait room chairs. Social distancing is easy in our common areas.
  • To be honest, we’ve always had a high level of disinfection with wiping surfaces after each patient as part of our regular clinic hygiene routine. Nothing new there!

Mask policy

Wear a mask covering your mouth AND nose when in the Center and while receiving a treatment. We realize this is a big ask and not always comfortable. Keep in mind it’s for everyone’s protection due to the close contact nature of our services. If it doesn’t work for you, we totally understand and hope to see you at a later date!

BYOM (Bring your own mask) or buy one from us!

If you don’t have a mask or forget, no worries; one can be purchased for $1.00. Please do not enter the clinic without a mask. Text your therapist and they will bring one outside to you.

Screening before coming to the Center

As a Regulated Health Care Providers, we have been mandated by the Ministry of Health to screen everyone before they are permitted to enter the clinic. We are obligated to refuse treatment and advise for COVID-19 testing if you answer YES to any of the following questions/symptoms:

  1. Have you had close contact with anyone with acute respiratory
  2. Illness or travelled outside of Ontario in the past 14 days?
  3. Do you have a confirmed case of COVID-19 or had close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19?
  4. Do you have a recent onset of any of the following symptoms?
  • Fever
  • New onset of cough
  • Worsening chronic cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Sore throat
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Decrease or loss of sense of taste or smell
  • Chills
  • Headaches
  • Unexplained fatigue/malaise/muscle aches (myalgias)
  • Nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain
  • Pink eye (conjunctivitis)
  • Runny nose/nasal congestion without other known cause

All therapists are Registered Acupuncturists (R. Ac). If your plan includes acupuncture, our treatments are most likely but not nececessarily covered. Each insurance plan is different. It is your responsibilty to find out from your organization or insurance provider if our services are covered before booking an appointment. 

On April 1st, 2013, The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care passed a bill in which acupuncture became recognized as a Regulated health profession in Ontario.

In order to legally provide acupuncture in Ontario, R. Ac’s must go through a process of exams, background checks in addition to an extensive Chinese Medicine post secondary education. This ensures patient safety.

All therapists working at Acupuncture Center Toronto are members in good standing with the CTCMPAO. The CTCMPAO is the governing body which dictates the laws and practice of acupuncture in Ontario. Each practitioner carries a designation number required to practice in the province.

Please note, we are an acupuncture focussed clinic. The first cupping appointment is 1 hour long and includes acupuncture. If you aren’t comfortable with needles, it’s best to connect with another clinic.

No, sorry we don’t offer “massage only” treatments. If massage is incorporated into a treatment, it will be brief and combined with needling and our other core services.

WE ARE A RECEPTION-LESS CLINIC. All your service needs will still be attended to by your therapist after you’ve made an appointment. We do not have front desk staff or a receptionist. Please click here to learn our clinic policies.

It’s important to understand how we communicate with first time and returning patients:

  1. Online scheduling only- Bookings are self-serve and done online. We do not schedule/reschedule or cancel appointments over the phone. We do however welcome new patient phone inquires for treatment related questions/concerns or if you have any technical issues with our online booking.
  2. Your therapist is your point-of-contact. After you have made an appointment, your therapist becomes your point for all inquiries. Their contact information is available on all booking related emails after you have made your first appointment.
Our online system’s cut off time is 3 hours before an available slot. Although treatments are offered 7 days/week we may not be able to respond from messages left through our general email/phone until the next business day. After hours/weekends we may not be able to respond via telephone/return messages regarding same day appointments.
Because we are a reception-less clinic, we cannot guarantee short notice bookings.
Because we do not have a receptionist onsite, for safety, the clinic door is often locked when we are in treatment. It will be opened 10-15 minutes before your appointment. If you come earlier than 15 minutes of your start time, the clinic door may be locked.
Weekend appointments often fill up quickly. Best to book at least 1 week ahead of time. During the week our daytime appointment times tend to have more availability. October thru December is our busiest time; where booking further in advance is recommended.

Yes, it is a clinic policy, that all first time patients are required to complete and sign an online intake/consent form before you arrive to your first appointment. This form can be found in every email our automated appointment system sends you leading up to your first appointment. It can also be found in your patient profile in our booking system. The form is integrated with our booking/health record system and is not on our website. Please contact your therapist direct if you cannot locate the intake form and we’d be happy to email it to you.

Because we do not have front desk staff, we do not accept walk-ins.

Please see a detailed list of our services.

No. We can only offer cupping based on a TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) scope of practice. Although we appreciate cuppings many wonderful cultural/religious associations, we are legally bound to only provide cupping through a TCM framework.
When you book a treatment with us, you will not be “sharing” your appointment time with other patients while the therapist bounces from room-to-room or person-to-person during time that you have paid for. In multiple- room acupuncture clinics or “community style” acupuncture, 1 therapist’s time is split between multiple patients at the same time. This may work for some however it’s not our style of care. You will be given all of our time and attention. We will have time to incorporate different modalities such as cupping, moxibustion, a bit of bodywork or gua sha. Whatever your body needs there will be enough time for. You will get an hour of our time instead of the 15 (or less) minutes often provided by many other busy clinics.

For privacy/health, billing and insurance reasons each appointment must be booked under the name of the person who will be receiving care. For these reasons, we prefer that each patient makes their own appointments. It avoids confusion and generally makes the booking process smooth. We do understand that there are circumstances where folks wish to book/pay for an appointment for a friend/family member.

Here’s how to book an appointment for someone else in our clinic

  1. Create an account in our online booking system in your name.
  2. Use the “relationship” feature in our booking system.

Using the relationship feature will allow you to easily book appointments, get notification reminders for their treatments as well as handle payment for someone else. It’s user-friendly and will save you hassle.
