Acupuncture treatments use very thin needles that are placed into the patient’s skin and then either gently follow specific movements once inserted, or are activated using electrical currents in order to restore balance and stimulate the central nervous system to treat a wide variety of conditions. This treatment originates from a Traditional Chinese medical practice and while it may not be for everyone, has provided incredible benefits to many patients all over the world, offering an effective treatment option that does not involve medications or invasive procedures.
Acupuncture has shown to be incredibly effective for patients suffering from one of several pain conditions, such as chronic back or neck pain, as well as pain associated with osteoarthritis. The acupuncture points are used to stimulate the central nervous system to release chemicals into the spinal cord, the brain, and various muscles, that support the body’s natural healing process as well as promote the psychological and physical well-being of the patient. While chronic pain management is the most common reason patients in Canada seek out acupuncture treatments, they have also proven to provide benefits and relief for conditions spanning all over the body, including the digestive system, the ears, nose, and throat, as well as for respiratory, gynecological, neurological, and emotional conditions. It is very common for patients to report feeling more energized or more relaxed following their acupuncture treatments.
A typical acupuncture treatment will likely cost around $100, but this price can vary depending on several factors including the level of expertise that the provider has, the location of the clinic, as well as what area of the body is being treated. You can find an acupuncturist who offers much lower prices, but if the provider does not have proper education, equipment, or experience in the field, any risks associated with the treatment will vastly increase. It is always recommended that you spend the extra money to ensure that your acupuncturist will provide properly sterilized equipment and is very well trained in the procedure for your health and safety. As well, the cost of the treatment varies from clinic to clinic as it is also based on the cost of living wherever the clinic is located. Many clinics will also vary their prices depending on the body the treatment is being done, and will typically cost slightly more for patients who have not received acupuncture treatment in over 3 months as those sessions will require more work and time. Subsequent treatments will be cheaper.
There are quite a few health insurance providers in Canada who will offer at least partial coverage for acupuncture treatments as long as the acupuncturist that is providing the treatment is licensed. In BC, only patients who have supplementary benefit status on top of their MSP coverage will be able to receive MSP coverage for acupuncture treatments, and only acupuncturists in BC who are licensed by the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of British Columbia are able to enroll to receive MSP billing numbers for their patients. Many independent health insurance providers will have their own amount of coverage they offer for acupuncture treatments, so it is always recommended that patients familiarize themselves with their healthcare coverage, and encourage them to reach out to their insurance providers for any clarification to ensure that they are aware of any costs they may have to cover out of pocket before going to receive the treatment. It is also recommended that patients check with their acupuncturist to ensure that the office is able to accept their specific insurance and that the acupuncturist themselves is enrolled in MSP.
The timeline in which patients can enjoy the results provided by acupuncture treatments depends on the health condition that is being treated if the patient has any other underlying health conditions, and the severity of the symptoms being treated. This timeline can vary from lasting for several weeks, months, or even years, and can be prolonged with a series of several sessions that include one or two weekly treatments until the series is complete.
