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: We strongly suggest you fill out the health intake form in advance online of your first appointment. If you are not able to fill out the form in advance please let your therapist know and arrive 15 minutes early so we can have a device ready for you in the waiting area. Keep in mind, because we do not have a receptionist and the door is often locked until right before your session time, we cannot guarantee you will receive your full amount of treatment time if you fill out the intake form at the clinic.
  • 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 without exception either by extracting a treatment from a pre-paid package or by an additional charge.
  • BRING A PAIR OF SHORTS: Most of the time, acupuncture won’t require you to fully disrobing. 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.
  • 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 DEBIT CARD, CHEQUE OR E-TRANSFER PAYMENTS
  • REMOVE YOUR SHOES BEFORE ENTERING TREATMENT ROOM: Although you are welcome to wear your shoes in the hallways/washroom, kindly take off your footwear before entering the treatment space.
  • REMOVE MAKE UP BEFORE COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE APPOINTMENTS

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 because your therapist is your go-to contact once you’ve made an appointment. We are located within a larger co-op wellness building where there is no front desk staff or 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 fill out an online intake 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 information reasons we prefer that each patient makes their own appointments. It avoids confusion and generally makes the booking process smooth. Although you can book an appointment for someone else, you will need their email/mobile number and must book their treatment under their name. Each booking is attached to a patient’s health information and contact information so please use their name and contact information when scheduling their appointment.
