"Dr. Yi Ding has been of immeasurable help to my family. He was instrumental in helping my son recover from Crohn's Disease, and he has helped me recover from cystitis. I will never be able to thank Dr. Yi Ding enough for his treatment which succeeded in treating two very stubborn conditions. He is an extraordinary practitioner and we are very fortunate to have him with us in Montreal."

Frequently asked questions

Do I need medical doctor's referral for TCM treatments??

No. You can call, email or request online to book an appointment. The medical doctor is a specialist in Western medicine and knows little about traditional Chinese medicine. Our practitioner will honestly advise you if you need TCM treatment.

What do I expect during first visit?

During the first visit, you should bring any medical documents to your pratitioner. You will be asked to fill out a questionnaire with regard to your medical history and basic personal information. Your practitioner will obtain a complete picture of your health state, daily diet, habit, behavior which may contribute to the condition.

During the consultation, it is very important for patients to describer all of your symptoms and daily physical activities in details, since a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine including acupuncturist depends heavily on your subjective description. After thorough Chinese medical examine, your practitioner will explain to you possible diagnosis and personalized treatment plan. It is followed by a treatment right away. Sometimes the clinic has to order herbs or natural products for a patient.

How often and how many sessions will I need treatments

For acupuncture or Tuina manual therapy, it usually requires 2 times per week for some weeks. When your symptoms are sinificantly reduced, your treatment frequency will be modified accordingly. For Chinese herbal mediicne, we prepare herbs every 5 days and modify the herbal formula every 5 days. When your symptoms are sinificantly reduced, your visit to the clinic is reduced to every 10 days.

In order to make your treatment more effective, you are recommended that you follow your practitioner's advise. Clinically, many patients tends to compromise their their treatment frequency and volume, which can really affect outcome of a treatment due to "insufficient dosage" effects. At our clinic, our practitioner acts in the best interests of our patients rather than financial interest.

Is there any limitation of daily activities after a TCM treatment?

No, in general. I will recommend that you don't go swimming or showering within 2 hours after a session of acupuncture treatment.

Does acupuncture hurt?

No. Unlike the thicker, hollow injection needles, acupuncture needles are fine, metallic and solid (0.12-0.30 mm). As they are skillfully inserted into selective points on your body, patients feel minimal prick pain like "mosquito bite" and tiny needling sensation. In our clinic, most of patients always say that it is much better than what they imagined.

Is treatment covered by insurance?

Most of insurance companies elect to cover acupuncture, naturopathy and massage therapy. Your treatments are possibly covered under your group insurance policy if you have one. You can find related information in the booklet issued to the insured or simply call the insurance company for the information. If you would like us to bill your insurance company directly for your treatments, call your insurance agent for the possibility. Please don't hesitate to contact us for any assistance. If insurance company doesn't allow direct billing, you can send receipts by post or online to the insurance company for the reimbursement.
