frequently asked questions

Regarding treatments

Initial & Evaluation Consultation
An initial consultation with Aleksandra is required to find out if you are a candidate for acupuncture and other treatments we offer. She will review your medical history and If you are determined to be a candidate, we can perform your first procedure the same day.

Number of Procedures
The number of procedures is dependent upon your medical needs and Aleksandra will discuss modalities with you on your first visit to the office after your evaluation.

Treatment Frequency
Once you are evaluated, the doctor will determine based upon your clinical presentation a treatment plan and adjust as needed over the course of your care.

What to wear
Please wear comfortable clothing that will give me easy access to various parts of your body (abdomen, back, arms and legs). 


What styles of Acupuncture do you practice

I practice many different styles of acupuncture, all equally effective in their own right. Certain practitioners prefer one over the other, and some will use the style that they feel is most fit for the patient and condition being treated, as I do. Although acupuncture first started in China, it has, over centuries, spread to many Asian countries and thus there are many different and distinct styles (Japanese, Korean, Classical, Traditional Chinese Medicine style etc.


Payments and Insurance

Payments are expected at the time of treatment. For your convenience, we accept Cash, Cheque or Credit Card payments. 

Many insurance companies cover acupuncture treatment. We participate as Out-of-Network providers with many insurance companies. Please check with your insurance company if you have acupuncture coverage for out-of-network providers or call us and we will verify coverage for you. If you have a Health Spending Account (HSA) you may be able to pay me directly from it, please check with your insurance carrier.
Please note that at this time Medicaid does not cover acupuncture treatments and we do not participate in Medicare.


Cancellation Policy

We require minimum 24 hrs advance notice to cancel all appointments. If less than 24 hrs notice is given, you will be asked to pay for missed appointment. We require credit card information on file for all new patients that wish to schedule an appointment.
