Does Acupuncture Hurt? | #AskRTT 014

We often get asked if acupuncture hurts and people are always relieved when we tell them it doesn’t. Watch episode 14 of the #AskRTT show to learn more about acupuncture needles and how they’re completely different from the needles you see at the doctor’s office.

At Royal Treatment Therapeutics, we can also direct bill to most insurance companies so you don’t have to pay out of pocket or deal with any paperwork. We can direct bill to the following extended health plans:

  • Chamber of Commerce Group
  • Cowan Insurance Group
  • Desjardins
  • Great West Life
  • Green Shield
  • Industrial Alliance
  • Johnson Inc.
  • Manulife
  • Maximum Benefit or Johnston Group
  • Pacific Blue Cross
  • SSQ Financial Group
  • Standard Life
  • Sunlife
  • The Co-Operators

#AskRTT is a weekly segment where your questions get answered by our award-winning team of healthcare professionals. Questions can be about practically anything: chiropractic care, massage therapy, physiotherapy, acupuncture, general health, exercise tips, and the list goes on.

We are Open

Our focus is to keep you, and our RTT family of healthcare professionals and support staff, safe and healthy. In order to do this, we have made a number of very important changes to our usual way of doing business. Until the pandemic is over the following will be our “new normal”:

Certain practitioners will be back to work during this time and others will not be working in order to limit the amount of staff in the clinic. Please be patient if your therapist is not available right away. Please check our online booking platform to see when your favourite practitioner will be returning.

  • Verbal and written COVID-19 pre-screening questions will be done as a part of your appointment booking and at the time of your treatment.
  • Patients are asked to bring their own personal disposable mask or cloth face covering. Please wear them into the clinic and face-masks will be mandatory to get your treatments. All of our staff will be wearing them as well.
  • Patients are asked to come alone as our waiting rooms will have limited seating.
  • All patients will be required to wash their hands before and after treatment.
  • Please arrive a couple of minutes before your treatment time.
  • We have enhanced our sanitization/ disinfection protocols with COVID-19 rated cleaning products. All contact surfaces will be cleaned after use.
  • As of August 1st, 2020, we will require ALL patients to have an email address and credit card on file in order to minimize the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus. Your information will be uploaded to a secure, encrypted JaneApp account. We will continue to directly bill your insurance company. Any outstanding balance will be charged to the card on your account. Your receipts will be emailed to you.

Please know we are doing everything possible to provide you with a safe, relaxing, and problem-free experience. We look forward to seeing you soon.  If you have any questions, please email us at admin@royaltreatmenttherapeutics.com or by phone at 604-437-7777.
