We are a patient focused clinic

Since 2003, we have been providing the best acupuncture in Toronto at a fair price. Our goal is to make our patients feel amazing though our core services of clinical acupuncture, cosmetic acupuncture, cupping, gua-sha and moxibustion. We provide affordable acupuncture in the best Bloor/Yorkville location 7 days a week. We are a “patient focussed” clinic. We believe that although we may have therapeutic knowledge and skills, it’s you the patient who knows what’s best for your body and what works for you! We provide results driven clinical care while letting you have a mini relaxation retreat. Receiving acupuncture should be relaxing. Acupuncture should not hurt. Whether we are practicing acupuncture, cupping therapy, moxibustion or gua-sha, we promise comfortable one-to-one personalized care.


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.

Please note this is not an exhaustive list. Chinese Medicine can help most conditions. Please reach out to us directly if your condition is not highlighted on our website.

  • 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: 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.
  • WE DON’T ACCEPT CHEQUE OR E-TRANSFER PAYMENTS: All other payments are accepted including American Express and Digital Wallet transactions.
  • 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.

  • As of June 10th 2022, masking in health clinics is optional. Do what feels best for you.
  • If you would prefer your Therapist to wear a mask, no problem! Either let them know directly or email us at [email protected] and we can pass on the message to your Acupuncturist in advance of your appointment.
  • Federally approved hand sanitizer available for staff and patients
  • Surface cleaning and disinfection after each patient visit in treatment rooms
  • Waiting area chairs remain distanced

Screening before coming to the Center

Please self-screen yourself prior to each visit. Please reschedule your visit if you’ve answered yes to any of the following:

  1. Have you had close contact with anyone with acute respiratory
  2. Do you have a confirmed case of COVID-19 or had close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19?
  3. 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

It depends. If your benefits cover acupuncture performed by a Registered Acupuncturist (R. Ac) and you are actually receiving Clinical Acupuncture as part of your appointment then yes! Keep in mind that insurance companies tend to only cover “medical” related expenses. Therefore Clinical Acupuncture appointments are usually (but not always) covered. Cosmetic, Herbal and virtual appointments may not be covered. Make sure to double check with us and your organization prior to booking an appointment. Please read this section carefully to avoid disappointment:

Check with your Organization first:

We can’t emphasize this enough! Each workplace has a unique insurance plan. It’s up to you to find out from your organization or insurance provider which specific services are covered prior to making an appointment.

Make sure the service you want and that R. Ac designation is covered

All of our Therapists are R. Ac’s (Registered Acupuncturists).All of our receipts will indicate the R. Ac # who provided care. Keep in mind, some of our patient’s insurance providers have told us that their insurance does not cover by an R. Ac but by a Medical Doctor or RMT. So make sure the service you want is covered AND that it will be reimbursed if an R. Ac (Registered Acupuncturist) provides the care.

If you didn’t actually receive any Clinical Acupuncture during your appointment, we can’t bill it as such

For ethical, Insurance and CTCMPAO policy considerations as Regulated Healthcare providers, we are legally bound to specify which services were performed on all receipts.  We want to make sure we do our work honestly and wouldn’t want you or us to get in trouble! Thank you for understanding.

We do not take treat cases that require 3rd party billing- including direct insurance, MVA (motor vehicle accident) and WSIB cases. Please note that this includes new and current patients.

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 would instead recommend visiting a  Registered Massage Therapy RMT focussed clinic and book a treatment with our friends at Atinama Massage Therapy. They are open 7 days a week and located downtown in Toronto.

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.
