How are private acupuncture treatments different from community treatments?
Private acupuncture treatments are available to those who prefer a bit more privacy. Treatments are one-on-one with the acupuncturist. If you are trying acupuncture for the first time and a bit nervous, we recommend booking your first session as a private one. Afterwards, you are welcome to switch to community treatments or continue with private sessions depending on your comfort levels. The final difference is that private acupuncture treatments are a set fee structure. The reason in providing both types of treatment is to make acupuncture accessible to all comfort levels of people in our community.
How are private and community acupuncture treatments the same?
Both options provide the same quality of care and both options can treat all kinds of issues.
However, there are two exceptions, injuries related to an ICBC claim and those seeking acupuncture for facial rejuvenation must book during private hours. Please read below for more information.
ICBC Claims Accepted
12 acupuncture appointments pre-approved, no doctor's note required
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident on or after April 1, 2019, you are automatically pre-authorized for up to 12 acupuncture treatments within the first 12 weeks of your accident date. These 12 acupuncture treatments can be directly bill to ICBC on your behalf.
Please note, acupuncture treatments related to MVA injuries that need to be billed directly to ICBC have to be booked during private hours due to the extra paper work.
Please see our blog post for details regarding ICBC claims or email for more information.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
Initial $105 & Subsequent $85
Acupuncture for facial rejuvenation?
Facial acupuncture is a non-invasive treatment that involves using acupuncture to improve skin and fight the ageing process. Sometimes referred to as an acupuncture face-lift, facial rejuvenation, or cosmetic acupuncture, it often is used as an alternative to surgical face-lifts and other conventional procedures said to reverse signs of ageing in the skin.
Facial acupuncture can help reduce wrinkles, diminish fine lines, remove age spots, and lift droopy eyelids. Most courses of cosmetic acupuncture treatment involve 10 or more sessions, as well as additional sessions for maintenance of results.
How does facial acupuncture work?
Facial acupuncture improves skin and act as an anti-ageing treatment in part by stimulating the production of collagen (a protein that acts as a major component of your skin). As you age, your skin's inner layer loses collagen and, as a result, becomes less supple and firm. The acupuncture needles are inserted into specific areas on the face and neck which stimulate your lymphatic and circulatory system, which work together to deliver nutrients and oxygen to your skin cells, nourishing skin from the inside out. This helps even out your complexion and promote your skin’s glow. The positive micro-traumas also stimulates the production of collagen. This helps improve elasticity, minimizing fine lines and wrinkles.
Facial acupuncture can help rejuvenate your skin by improving your overall energy. Every facial treatment is part of a holistic approach to healing. Not only will treatment focus on your skin’s health but will work on other body systems related to the health of your skin.
