Acupuncture has been part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for over 3,000 years. An acupuncture treatment starts with the identification of key health issues and the establishment of a diagnosis and treatment plan based on principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Treatments may include the stimulation of acupressure points physical manipulation or the insertion of fine sterile needles under the skin. Acupuncture can effectively treat a wide range of health issues. The main objective of acupuncture treatments is to restore the body’s energetic balance thus improving overall health and well-being. While acupuncture is often associated with pain control, in the hands of a well-trained practitioner it has much broader applications. It is particularly useful in resolving physical problems related to tension, stress and emotional conditions. Acupuncture treatments are covered by most extended heath care plans when performed by a registered acupuncturist. Each plan provides different coverage. Check with your insurance provider to find out first of all if you are covered for acupuncture, the percentage of treatment cost reimbursed by your plan, and the total amount of coverage allowed each year. www.acupuncturecanada.org is a source to see if Acupuncture is the right treatment for you.
